The Trojan Horse of Tithing


The Trojan Horse Of Tithing is a plea to Christian leaders, written from a Charismatic/Pentecostal perspective. Jonathan Brenneman exposes the inherent problems with common tithe teachings, highlighting serious issues with even so-called “grace tithing.” He demonstrates how deception starts subtly and documents the growing acceptance in mainstream Christianity of even overt teachings of salvation by tithing. Millions of people today now believe they will never even enter heaven without their tithes. No matter how much we try to dress tithe teachings up as grace, they continue to be the root of serious problems.

The arguments contained here against the modern tithe tradition are thorough, compelling, and overwhelming. The gospel is worth giving not only our money but even our lives to promote. However, modern tithe traditions have no place in this because they are not based on truth and misrepresent the way God relates to people. Rather than helping to advance the gospel, they distort it. God is calling his church to get rid of the leaven and return to a powerful and pure gospel message!

The Trojan Horse of Tithing is one of the most comprehensive overviews of multiple arguments against tithing. It also makes a compelling case as to why tithing is incompatible with the gospel and deals thoroughly with less logical but emotionally powerful objections such as “but tithing works!” We include:

  • What could have possibly convinced strong proponents of tithing such as Derek Prince to change their minds?
