LDS Tithing Requirement - Page 3

It is a commandment to all members of the church. As with any commandment it is up to the individual if he or she is willing or able to fulfill this commandment.

There is no coercion in the Church, but there are many expectations due to covenants (promises) that members have made with God, covenants that are taken seriously by active members of the Church.

Requirement Tithing LDS

LDS_forever I think a big part of the benefits of tithing is just what you said it is a show of obedience to the lord. Through that he can use that donation and multiply it greatly and some of that will come back to you. Most likely in a ten fold. Might be clothing or food from unexpected sources that value way more then you gave or a real good job.

Page 3 Requirement Tithing LDS

In "Preach My Gospel," the study guide given and used by missionaries, it says on page 78,

QUOTE

"Tithing funds are used to support the ongoing activities of the Church, such as building and maintaining temples and meetinghouses, carrying the gospel to all the world, conducting temple and family history work, and many other worldwide activities. Tithing does not pay local Church leaders, who serve without receiving payment of any kind.


Tithing is a law of Sacrifice that allows individuals to be united in the building of the Kingdom of God on Earth.

It pays the salaries of your preachers too? How does the membership know how the money is spent, is there a statement of accounts?

Your question is intresting there revival I was reading the quote from dbackers and it said this.

QUOTE
Tithing does not pay local Church leaders,


I had thought no later Day Saints Leaders were paid but I was mistaken it would appear. I would like to expand your question to at what level do they start receiving payment and is it salary or just to off set costs of doing the lords work?

I saw the quote, but I find it hard to believe no one receieves absolutely nothing for their preaching.
