240.1: Tithing (D&C Gospel Doctrine Lesson 17, Updated)

April 27, 2017

Engaging Gospel Doctrine

The Law of Tithing and the Law of the Fast

 

“Put your money where your mouth is” succinctly demonstrates that our values are not shown so much by what we profess as by what we pay–where we invest in our time and resources. This updated episode tackles the challenging topic of tithing. We know tithing is 10%, but 10% of what, exactly? I think that there is a formula for tithing that would all at the same time

  1. align with scriptural teachings
  2. align with historical precedent
  3. be sustainable and ethical for church members
  4. result in more tithing for the church!
