Greetings Brethren, The Lost and the Ministers of Peace & Paradise: We come to note what has already been revealed by the Inspired Word of God. The Man in the Flesh who sponsors False Prophecy, False Teaching, False Doctrines often claim that money was not in existence in the Old Testament. Therefore, there is an automatic transition to money as a tithe in the present contemporary world.However, the Bible reveals the on-going use of money. Thus if God wanted us to tithe money under the Old Law and under the New Law we should be able to find this commandment, or order by God in the Bible.Again we Warn the False Prophets that Tell Un-Holy Lies on God. Your days are numbered. Even God will show no mercy on those that blaspheme the Holy Spirit.Peace, Carl Patton Carl Patton writing for the FreedomJournal February 16, 2001 in the year of our Lord.-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- CHRISTIANITY: FALSE TEACHING FALSE DOCTRINE PART 39: THE USE OF MONEY THROUGHOUT THE BIBLE In the name of God, Master of the universe, Ruler of the earth.Abraham who existed before the Law was a wealthy man (See Genesis 13:2).
