1. Leviticus 27:30-32 et al – the tithe (all three of them) was required of OT Jews under the Law and is never enjoined on NT Christians.

2. Proverbs 29:18 (KJV) – has nothing to do with leadership but concerns prophetic revelation.

3. Jeremiah 29:11 – a promise to the nation of Israel in captivity, not to individuals in distress.

4. 1 Timothy 6:10  – money isn’t the root of all evil, it’s the fertilizer.

  1. Add to the list: Matthew 18:20 — doesn’t imply that Jesus is only in our midst when 2 or 3 (or more) people are praying. The context is church discipline and coming together on making a decision.
