(1) "HOLY" tithes were always only food from inside God';s HOLY land of Israel. Period. Tithes could  not come from what man increased, from outside Israel or from non-Hebrews.

(2) Levites who received the first whole Levitical tithe were NOT ministers of the blood. They assistants to the pristws.

(3) Non-food producers such as carpenters, tentmakers and craftsmen could not qualify as tithe-payers.

(4) Gospel workers are not the new Levites. After Calvardy all believers are priests and priests did not pay tithes.

Expertise

I am privileged to be able to offer an alternative insight into the complicated world of Seventh-Day Adventists (SDA) theology. I will rely heavily on the Bible, but will also consider history and use logic in exposing deficiencies in SDA teachings. I would ask anyone who is considering becoming a SDA or if you are already in the SDA church, but are searching for the truth, to please allow me to offer a different explanation for the claims of the SDA. Remember : "The truth will set you free" (John 8:32). I can answer your questions pertaining to the beliefs and history of the SDA. I am not able to answer questions concerning spirituality or church discipline.

Experience

I have extensively studied the theology of the Seventh-Day Adventists (SDA) for a number of years. I have many books and tape sets produced by experts in this field of study. I have debated current members of the SDA church. I have a great desire to help these people see the truth.
