    YOU DO NOT GIVE TITHE TO A CHURCH UNLESS THEY HAVE A FOOD PANTRY




    Malachi states, Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.

    At no point are there any instructions to bring tithe to a church with no food pantry to feed the hungry. The operative word is storehouse, not church, temple, or mosque or any worship facility not feeding people. But a place to store food and feed the hungry. Tithing serves one purpose and that is to feed people and not to support the church, that is what an offering is for. Genesis 41:56 (KJV) 56 And the famine was over all the face of the earth: and Joseph opened all the storehouses, and sold unto the Egyptians; and the famine waxed sore in the land of Egypt.

    The storehouse was not a place of worship but a food pantry to distribute food. In Joseph's case in Genesis 41:56 he sold the food in the storehouses to the Egyptians.
