Over at Mere Comments, and following up on this week’s Acton Commentary, “Christian Giving Begins with the Local Church,” I discuss some reasons why Christian giving doesn’t end there.
It’s vitally important, I think, to distinguish between the church as institution and the church as organism.

Jesus teaches that giving begins with your family “if you do not provide for your own relatives you are worse than a heathen and a tax collector”
Arguably that can extend to the church invisible as well, and replaces the tax/tribute of the tithe as Jesus taught Peter with the catch of the fish with the tithe money it its mouth.
