#199: Is tithing mandatory for Christians? Chris Brown and I discuss this to get to the root of the problem - which has little to do with ten percent.

Chris Brown has been a pastor for several years, speaking to congregations and audiences all over the United States.

Full show notes at

He recently became on of Dave Ramsey's Speakers and now hosts the popular True Stewardship Podcast.

In this episode, Chris and I tackle this touchy subject of tithing:

• What is a tithe?

• Who is called to give a tithe?

• What about the "Old Testament vs New Testament" argument around giving a tithe?

• Are we asked to give a tithe based on the gross or net of our paychecks?
