Mark Driscoll Contradicts His Wise Counselor and Governing Board Member Robert Morris Regarding Tithing

Is there trouble in paradise?

Watch (and read about) Mark Driscoll talk about tithing and first fruits.

As of now, Robert Morris provides wise counsel and is on the governing board of Driscoll’s The Trinity Church. Morris believes not tithing to the church is like stealing from God and will lead to the non-tither being cursed. He considers his Blessed Life teaching on tithing to be critical to the Christian life.

Driscoll says on this video is that there is no particular percentage one is required to give. He also said one is not required to give to the church. Driscoll said his family once gave to pay a single mom’s legal bills as a part of their giving.

As it stands, Robert Morris is serving on the governing board of a church where curses are possible because the people are being taught there is no required 10%.

This teaching is tied into Morris’ Christology. He believes Jesus is God’s tithe and because of that, you have to give your 10% to the church before you pay your mortgage or pay any other bills. Watch:

Bring the tithe to the church…

Watch below as Morris in 2011 says that money not given first to God is cursed. He promises a money back guarantee on this teaching. He adds that he is tired of hearing about broken families and lost jobs because they don’t tithe. Apparently, The Trinity Church congregation is at risk if they follow Driscoll’s teaching.

Not tithing is like stealing and opens the door to demons, according to Morris.
