Most Christians believe in paying tithes - a percentage of their income to the church. I got to wondering what fundy homechurchers do about this? Do they just not pay? Or do they give it directly to charitable organizations? Somehow I can't imagine, say, the Maxwells giving large sums of money to a women's shelter or something. Thoughts?
I don't really know much about home churching. Before I heard of the concept within the fundie circles, home churching to me was what my family did when I was a child; basically join together with another family or two during the week for discussion about the bible, sing a few songs and have food. We still went to church on a Sunday and Wednesday but probably one night a week we'd either have friends over, or we'd go to someone else's house. So how does it work? What about tithing? If you church is your home then who do you tithe to? If your church is your home, are you claiming tax advantages for your 'church'? From what I have gathered this is what people are doing, there's no wonder homechurching is increasing. Seems like a little earner.
