Is tithing the New Testament standard for giving?

tithing toonDave Miller has a thought-provoking post at SBC Voices on the always-interesting topic, What is the New Testament standard for giving?

Dave’s outline:

1) The concept of tithing in the OT was quite a bit more complicated than the way we sometimes present it.

2) None of the NT instructions on giving mention tithing.

3) There is a pattern of New Testament giving that does not involve tithing.

The New Testament Standard of Giving (2 Corinthians 8-9)

1) Giving is a voluntary act.

2) NT giving is generous.

3) NT giving is evidence of commitment to Christ and passion for his Kingdom.

4) The essence of NT giving is sacrifice.
