    Not sure what the bible say's except titheing was in the O.T. and isn't required today. As for freely giving, I believe that is in a way false. Seems one of the lies is if you don't  tithe, you are stealing from God and that puts fear into peoples hearts and mind and they give more. God doesn't need / want money.

    God needs money, for some reason God cannot hold onto money, so he needs a constant supply.

    When they paid tithes that was taxes and they paid the kings 10 per cent of everything.  So his family could live off the other people.  But offerings were from the heart.  Since paying taxes are to the current government then tithes are a way the church has tricked people into paying more money.  While they bless the guns on both sides in a war.   That God condems.  (Genesis 6:13) 13 After that God said to Noah: “I have decided to put an end to all flesh, because the earth is full of violence on account of them, so I am bringing them to ruin together with the earth.

    So Noah build the ark to save a few of mankind.  www.jw.org

    The law requiring tithing was part of an exclusive covenant between God and the nation of Israel. Exodus 19:3-8 Only the Israelites were bound by that law.

    The Bible states categorically that the sacrificial death of Jesus, in 33 C.E., blotted out, or abolished, the Law and with it the “commandment to collect tithes.” Colossians 2:13, 14

    the Bible also shows that Christ fulfilled the Law, and God brought it to an end; so Christians are not bound by its regulations.

    They do not tithe, nor are they under obligation to give any other contribution of a specified amount or at a particular time.

    Paul wrote to the Christian congregation in Corinth: Let each one do just as he has resolved in his heart, not grudgingly or under compulsion.

    Christians are not under the Law covenant given to Israel. Thus, they are not obliged to give a set amount to God.
