Thinking on Scripture is about promoting a Biblical worldview predicated on a plain reading of God’s word.  The Bible is a revelation from God to man that addresses such matters as the origin of the universe, mankind, evil, etc.  Scripture does not address these subjects exhaustively, but what it does reveal is true, and this provides a foundation for interpreting the world around us.  Scripture also reveals that God is actively involved in the daily affairs of mankind and that He directing history for His purposes and glory.

  • Tithing: It’s NOT What You Think!

         The word tithe means “to give a tenth.” Prior to the giving of the Mosaic Law (ca. 1445 B.C.), we see an example of Abraham giving Melchizedek a tenth of the spoils of war which he had accumulated after he had defeated Chedorlaomer at the Valley of Shaveh (Gen 14:17-20). Later, Jacob made a vow to give God a tenth of his possessions if God would be faithful to protect him on a journey […]

Giving finances to support God’s […]
