It is not taking God out of the government that makes the economy collapse (doesn't help it). We are in the world but not of the world. Any chastisement would come from Malachi 3 behavior. One big upset with God is the lack of tithes coming into His storehouse. We become cursed with a curse. God doesn't have to lift a finger. We did it ourselves. It is not of any concern regarding the collapse of economies or upset. The Christian who has tied into God's eternal economy is fine. And I know that in all things God will receive glory if there be a people to lift the name of Jesus so that all men can be drawn to Him.
bro Smichaelthe tithe was put in place by God so that the levites would be provided for. They had no part in the land inheritance of Israel and they tended to the tabernacle and temples of God so they had their hands too full for anything else. the tithe doesn't apply to us gentiles but what we should do is make a firstfruits offering to the Lord of whatever protion the Lord would have us give. also in the Acts, the Church (community of believers) sold their possessions and shared the money according to everyone's need so noone wanted for anything. the Church was communal, eating and living together and that is what we really should be doing. soon enough though, the Lord will compell us to do so.bro this was dead on the money
