In this second sermon in his series on tithing, Mr. Smith looks at what the Bible says on this subject from Exodus through Malachi. He explains why tithing is not mentioned in Exodus than looks at the detailed principles of tithing given in Leviticus and Numbers. He finishes the sermon proving from the context that the statement in Malachi about not tithing is robbery against God does not apply only to the time the prophecy was given but also for our day and into the future.
