Freed from Tithing, Free to Give - Part 1 of 4

About 2 1/2 years ago I wrote a ten-part series of blog posts about tithing, which I've now renamed "Freed from Tithing, Free to Give."  I've now recorded a four-part video/audio series based upon the written series.

Below you'll find the video and the audio for Part 1.  In Part 1, I talk about Abraham's tithe and Jacob's tithe, and I also talk about how, by necessity, scriptures have to be taken out of context in order to teach "tithing" in the church. I obviously hope that through this series, people will be "freed from tithing" and "free to give."

Please stay tuned for the whole series - there's lots more to cover!

"Produce Fruit and Stop Picking Fights!"

I know many of us have been under some terrible religious and legalistic teachings in our pasts, as well as currently. How about we stop picking fights with those we disagree with, and instead go out there are cheerfully proclaim the good news! :)
