I am the mastermind behind the site Tithehacker. The purpose of the site is: to stir up a revolution of radical giving.
The word “hacker” has gotten a bad rap. The word came to represent people who were technologically savvy but caused havoc for fun and profit.
But real hackers aren’t anything like that.
Real hackers are people who create, push boundaries, redefine what can’t be done, and ultimately change the world. The hackers aren’t just confined to software or electronics–they’re in all walks of life. Here are the common criteria:
- They push the envelope.
- They destroy to recreate.
- They do the impossible.
- They ultimately change the world.
Anyone can be a hacker. All you have to do is care enough about the thing you want to hack, roll up your sleeves, get to work, and get it done.
I wanted to hack tithing. Because like the word “hacker” tithing was also getting a bad rap. In fact, if you want to stir up a debate just bring up the topics of tithing and/or tithes and offerings in a crowd.
Just make sure you hit the ground before the gun fight starts!
So the site is not about tithing, it’s about becoming a Tithe hacker.
It’s not something you read or hear. The fact is, when most people give their testimonies about tithing it’s usually with an instantaneous and positive ending. Most ministries tell how the person who gave received a 400% increase in a matter of months.
Last year…that was NOT the case with me.
In the same way He loves people of faith. People who expect Him to do what He said He would do. And the best way to love giving and have faith in it is to see it as a seed investment."
Ananias and Sapphira lied about giving all they got from the sold portion of land.
if you are supposed to give God your tithe (10% of what you've earned) and you decide to save some part of it for your self, its similar to what those two did.
it is true that our blessing does not depend on how much we tithe, but when you tithe regularly, and you still lie and cheat people then you are on your own.
Why don’t people like to go the extra mile? It’s simple: like tithing the rewards aren’t immediate. They don’t show up in next weeks check! I used to think same the same thing: “Why would I do extra work and not be paid for it?” That argument used to make so much sense to me until I realized that we all one point worked for free.
The minute you decided to step out and become a giver he comes along with all the “logical” reasons why you don’t have to. He’s very convincing don’t think that you can out reason him. He’s there to give you every excuse why you shouldn’t do it...
