Tithing is not giving but fulfilling God's commandment. Any other form of giving is not tithing but simply working for God.

 
First of all honour tithes and then later, fulfil another form of giving.

Anything you give using tithes money it's wrong, you bring a curse to yourself.

The secret why I am a blessed man is because I give my tithes faithfully.

If you think blessings are in the name of Archbishop, take the name and leave me with my Jesus.

I remain faithful to my God
I don't work for God using tithes money.

In some places tithes have gone down because some people are abusing tithes money by giving to other things (zvishandwa) eg missions, securing church chairs, etc.

You only reap what you sow.

Some of you, your life does not look different from your relatives because you are not faithful in tithing. When you rob God's tithes, you are actually opening doors to the enemy.

Be honest then later you will be able to help others.
Hatishandiri Mwari nemari ye chegumi tinotukwa naMwari.
If we do so the devil will condemn us and then we get dry and no blessings.

We are worn by surrendering.
The way to go up is go down first.
Humble yourself you will find you are up.
 
Some churches their bishops don't pay tithes, but in ZAOGA FIF we give tithes from the Archbishop downwards.
