Today I was browsing Ghanaweb as is my daily hobby when I came across your insightful exegesis on tithing. I promptly made a purchase via Smashwords.com. A cursory glance through your work indicates a hit on the nail right at the head; no mincing of words; just the bare facts that most of our current crop of opportunistic pastors would have your head for. But I would rather congratulate YOU for a job well done and shame those money loving wolves in sheepskin. If only they had an inkling of the harm their biblical concoctions on tithing is doing to Christendom, they would have repented and recanted by now. Alas! they remain ensconced in the trappings of money and in dire need of deliverance. Your work might help remove lots of cobwebs and hence save some of them who, in genuine ignorance, might have propagated the tithing fallacy. God bless you, Bro Amartey! I'm glad people of your kind are still walking the face of the earth!!!

In this hard hitting and ambitious work, Brother Amartey's teachings on tithing provide answers to questions regarding its relevance or irrelevance to the new covenant church. Following a precise examination of many key biblical passages, Brother Amartey proves that the church should be supported by new covenant principles of giving rather than a man-made monetary tithing system. He demonstrates how professing "church leaders" have manipulated key biblical texts to deceive and fleece well-meaning believers of their financial resources.
For example, Brother Amartey explains how "church leaders" have ...
1. used the pre-mosaic accounts of Abram, Melchizedek, and Jacob to deceptively justify tithing today.
2. changed the Old Testament biblical tithe to monetary income.
3. modified the Old Testament biblical tithing pattern to a man-made tithing system.
4. redefined "firstfruits" to mean the first ten-percent of monetary income.
5. used Malachi 3:9 as a fear tactic to force Christians to pay monetary tithes.
6. improperly equated the word "storehouse" in Malachi 3:10 to that of a church facility.
7. falsely taught that Jesus recommended monetary tithing.
8. used emotionalism and other psychological tactics to mislead Christians to pay monetary tithes.
This book is a "must read" for any unbiased student of the Bible. It will surprise and shock many believers who have been taught for many years that monetary tithing is the standard form of giving to support the new covenant church. Moreover, this book will also set Christians free from the overt and subtle spiritual abuse of many churches ... especially as it relates to giving money. When Christians truly understand New Testament principles of giving, they will experience new freedom and joy without feeling hard-pressed.
