As seen from the scriptures above, God has tithed his people from the days of Abraham. Tithing was adopted by the early Christian church. Tithing has continued in modern times in the Church of England and the Roman Catholic Church especially in Austria and Hungary. In other places, it has been replaced by other systems to voluntarily support the clergy. (Source: Microsoft Encarta Encyclopedia.)
