We preach tithing to the poor people of the world because the poor people of the world have had cycles of poverty, generation after generation. That same poverty continues from one generation to another, until people pay their tithing.” – Russell M. Nelson, President of the LDS Church, talking in Nairobi, Kenya yesterday

    I started seeing more money in my bank after I stopped giving 10% to the Corporation… Go figure!

    I observed that I received exactly 10% more money after I quit paying tithing. I have no idea how this happened.
