Leviticus 27:30 states, "'A tithe of everything from the land, whether grain from the soil or fruit from the trees, belongs to the LORD; it is holy to the LORD."
Once again, we weren't alive during the time this takes place so we can only go on what evidence we have. I believe the evidence is strong that the tithe was a form of land rent.
I take it you didn't read the article.As in, has nothing whatsoever to do with LVT, renting land from a collective, or being evicted because someone stepped forward with an offer of a greater tithe in return for exclusive possession?
I know how to read. And you can bold words without being condescending.Oh, and the parts I put in red and bold - that wasn't to make myself "more right". It was just to make sure you didn't miss and dismiss it as so much "blah blah". Which you did anyway.
Well I was raised Christian but I only discuss religious arguments concerning politics and economics with other Christians.And, incidentally, while I happen to believe in God, I am not the slightest bit religious. I only quoted scripture because you seemed to think you had some kind of LVT lock on Judeo-Christian scripture.
Crow calling the raven black?Not to mention a false guilting of others based on your narrow interpretations of certain passages. Which don't really hold any weight at all with me (it really is some 'blah blah blah' for me).
