The overriding purpose of Word of His Grace is to glorify God and His Christ. This is a family-run ministry started in the mid-1990s, and we launched the website in 2000.

We do not want to beg for money or run annoying and distracting fund-raising drives that might offend some people or drive them away from seeking Scriptural truth. On the other hand, if you like what you see and want to support this work, we gratefully accept donations. We have provided a PayPal Donation button below. You do not have to create a PayPal account in order to donate through PayPal. PayPal does not charge you, the donor, a fee, but will charge us 2.9% + $0.30 per donation (as of 2017-08-23).

PayPal will notify us with your name, the email address you give them, and the amount of your donation. Rest assured that PayPal does not identify your bank, bank card, or any other financial information. If you donate through PayPal, PayPal will create a record for you of your transaction that can serve as a receipt should you want one. If you donate by mail, we will send a receipt only if you specifically ask for one. We are grateful for your donation, and we will put it to good use in this ministry, but, since we are not a tax-exempt, non-profit organization, we do not routinely send receipts for your donations, nor will we bother you with requests for more donations.

If you would rather donate by mail, we have provided an address below. Please make the check or money order out to Peter Ditzel, as we do not have a corporation, either profit or nonprofit (see “Why is Word of His Grace not a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt religious organization?“). Thank you.

What the Bible Says About Tithing and Christian Giving

At a time when giving is reaching all-time lows in the church, ignorance about what is real Christian giving is reaching all-time highs. Surely, this is no coincidence. Not only does this article expose the misinformation we are fed in this area that can actually warp our thinking, but it sheds light on the true, biblical teaching about giving. I sincerely hope that all readers will give prayerful consideration to all this article has to say.

Has anyone ever told you to tithe by giving one-tenth of your income to the church? Or perhaps someone has told you to give to a particular ministry so that God will prosper you. Maybe you were even made to feel that you needed to make up for your sins by giving.

But have you ever stopped to wonder which, if any, of these approaches to giving is the right one for Christians? In this article, we will examine each of these ways of looking at giving to determine whether it is biblical. We will also see whether there is another approach to giving—one that is less popularly promoted. Because it is so commonly taught, we will devote the first section of this article to tithing.
