Should the Church Teach Tithing?
 
A 2 hour video of the 19 point essay "Tithing is Not a Christian Doctrine" The video is showing me, Russell Earl Kelly, Ph. D. with no material displayed. Every statement has something important and challenging. Novice editing makes it choppy in a few places. It is far from perfect but well worth the view. 

Friends, I am not opposed to financially supporting churches and the advancement of God's kingdom. However I am opposed to supporting churches using the false doctrine of NT tithing instead of better New Covenant freewill offering principles.

You can get this video on DVD from my website:
