“Tithing, today, is reaching the levels,
I believe, of a modern scandal.”
– Russell Earl Kelly, Ph.D.

This is a slam-dunk, you all. Praise God!
And bless you, Russell Kelly!!!
May we be obedient and get it right — finally.
I wrote the above right after I first saw Russell’s video. I was so excited because in this one presentation, Russell Kelly completely demolishes this “love of money” doctrine that is keeping so many from being led by the Holy Spirit.
Tithing is a big part of what is keeping the church from being alive truly in Christ!
And here, Russell shows us that the old covenant believers mostly didn’t even give 10% of their money to the Levitical priesthood.
What we’ve been taught about tithing is a falsehood. It’s a doctrine of demons that is “the love of money” driven.
Russell doesn’t talk about some of my conclusions [The Day that Tithing Ended — To Now Be Led By the Holy Spirit], but he totally proves that tithing is a false doctrine that should never be mentioned again as even some kind of a benchmark.
We’re supposed to be led by the Holy Spirit now, determining in our hearts what to give, according to Paul.
Russell’s entire book, Should the Church Teach Tithing? A Theologian’s Conclusions about a Taboo Doctrine, can be downloaded for free as a pdf HERE.
May we be ONE in Christ — not led by the law; though, tithing wasn’t really even practiced the way tithing teachers teach it.

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:
There you can also find the book:

From: About the Author
Although legally blind since 1989, Russell subsequently completed a Th. M.. and a Ph. D. at independent Baptist-oriented Covington Theological Seminary in Ft. Oglethorpe, Georgia in August 2000. His dissertation was on the subject of tithing. From that dissertation came his first book, Should the Church Teach Tithing? A Theologian’s Conclusions about a Taboo Doctrine.
Russell lists all 19 points here (scroll down for article)

Tithing or the Carriage Driver? [From the Let Us Be ONE prophecy]
Baruch: “Not only is DECEPTION of the church possible, it was PROPHESIED TO HAPPEN!” — Jesus said “IN THE LAST DAYS THE MAJORITY WILL BE DECEIVED, take heed that it doesn’t happen to you” — “FALSE TEACHERS are actually SPEAKING SPELLS with the words of their FALSE DOCTRINES!”
