Did Paul Claim the Tithes? What did He Claim Instead?

Posted by on Dec 31, 2017 in Bible Study

The official doctrine of the Church is that Paul claimed to the tithes of the churches, saying, “You shall not muzzle an ox while threshing”, and that in Chapter 9 of his first letter to the Corinthians he strongly asserts his rights. But he refuses to avail himself of his right, that he might influence a wider circle of men. For their sakes, he thus voluntarily surrendered his undoubted rights of the tithes. This is what the Christian theologians teach. Can we...

Posted by on Aug 3, 2017 in Bible Study

What does the Torah say about the so-called professional priesthood and tithes? Is the professional priesthood entitled to receive the tithes; are there any justifications for that in the Torah?

Misunderstanding of Paul

Posted by on May 29, 2016 in Bible Study

 A Mind Twister We are justified by works and not by faith only (Jas 2:24), but by the works of the Law no flesh shall be justified (Rom_3:20), but the doers of the Law of God are justified (Rom 2:13, Jas 1:22-23) (Paul and James said that?) Yet, a man is not justified by works of the Law (Gal 2:16) and those who are of the works of the law are under curse (Gal 3:10). But, if by works of the Law no flesh shall be declared right before Him, how come by the Law is the...
