Gospel Tithing Baptist Church 2

I'm rating the name of this Church:

Shakespeare's Juliet asked, "What's In A Name" to justify falling in love with Romeo who had a name indicating he was from a lower class of people. With all due respect to the famed writings of Shakespeare there's plenty in a name when a church has a name with Tithing in it.

In my view, there might as well be a church named, The Saturday Sabbath Baptist Church, The Eight Day Old Male Circumcision Baptist Church, The No Women Wearing Men's Clothes (pants) Deut 22:5 Baptist Church, The Men Must NOT Shave Off the Sides of Their Hair Baptist Church Leviticus 19:27, or better yet, The Rest On The First Day of the Pass-Over Baptist Church Lev.23:7-8.

Does the fact that in Matthew 23:23 and Luke 11:42 Jesus called Tithing the least important Old Covenant law to Jews who were still bound by the tithe law before dying Jesus died on the cross and his saying "It is Finished" (Paid in Full) to fulfill the law escape them?

I'm not against tithing, unless it is forced as a law that is binding for Christians. Christians are under a New Covenant. I'm led to give by what is right as I decide in my own heart as instructed in 2nd Corinthians 9:7. It could be less than ten percent, could be more because I've read my New Testament and understand my New Covenant rights. I admit I'm a far from perfect believer in Jesus. I'm undergoing lots of construction but I do know I've come this far by his grace through faith. It took me a minute but I'm free in Christ and plan to stay that way as instructed in Galatians 5:1-4

I'm no longer under Old Covenant laws that the New Testament said Jesus nailed to the cross. My ideal life would be to live by my New Covenant grace through faith in Jesus and the guidance of God's Spirit instead of Old Covenant laws given to a different group of people (Jews) under a different covenant. Col.2:14, Galatians 3:13, Romans 8:3, Galatians 3:13

I've got to give this church credit for the Tithe Promo right off the bat. At least you may have more than a hint of what is expected going in.
