That is not true. The Assemblies of God DO believe and teach tithing. Not sure why the above statement was made. The United Methodist Church has a tithing position as well. Here is their statement "The Church expects pastors to "teach and model generous Christian giving with a focus on tithing as God’s standard of giving." So, the above statement is false.
Hi Reuben,

You are correct the Assemblies of God does teach and practice tithing.
The Assemblies of God has always been a proponent of tithing (or giving one-tenth of one’s personal income to support the work of God). http://ag.org/top/Beliefs/topics/gendoct_06_tithing.cfm

The fault in Bible complications is not with God or the Bible, but with men who refuse to believe what God says and think we have to interpret what He says in order to get the meaning. Dake Bible -Mark 11:17 note

Bibleman you and Reuben are missing the point. There is tithing because you want to pay honor and tribute to God and 10% has been the standard to do this seen first in the Book of Genesis.

Then there is tithing because a preacher stands and says God says you must tithe here in Malachi I read "Will a man rob God?...

If tithing is taught as a way to worship God, as a good steward, as a responsibility to support the church, as freely given, to help others. Then I don't have a problem with it.

What I do have a problem is when a preacher tries to put me back under the law and reads of demands of the law to tithe. Any Christian preachers that tries to justify tithing for a Christian by reading old testament law on tithing is to me a false teacher, a money grubber.

I have a confession, the last time i went to mass was 1970, and the priest said (to the congregation) 'your 20 cents is not enough' and thats what i put on the plate,
so i decided that was the straw that broke the camel's back and did not go anymore.

Thats right Macca. Paul states he does not
use the tithe, and neither did Jesus nor any
apostle follow it because it hinders the
gospel.

If anyone has a better source of the
worlds Christian faiths let them present
it with the source.
Until that time, this is the most accurate
and I've compared the current R.Cathlic
versus the chart and the R.C. has increased.

It seems the denominations that do not
tithe are by far, the greatest fishers of
men, while the tithers do little, all three
denominations of tithers have caught
less than 2% of fish. Not very good
fishers the tithers. Quite outstanding
that the churches that do not tithe
have hospitals, schools, and santuarys
acorss the world that people actually
freqent regularly. Where I live we've two
morman churches and I can assure you
I've never seen more than two vehicles
entering or leaving and their gates are
locked most all the time, but the cathlic
churchs are flooded with people 24/7.

The pont macca brings out is that tithing
deminishes the gospel of Jeus in lieu
of money that Jesus suspended. Where
they get the authority of Jesus to tithe
is completely lacking. All they can do
is quote the Levitcal law, which is no more.
People are slaves of tradition and have
little interest in the word of God.
Every few months bibleman re-introduces
tithing as a new subject, but it has been
rehashed over and over. I notice
the other verses of the Levitical systemn outside
of money are never used. Interesting isnt' it.
