I became disabled three years ago and receive under$1,500 a month to live on. Husband (agnostic and not an investigator like me) is a school teacher and has made it clear that his earned money WILL NEVER be tithed on, by any church. I agree. So do they expect me to tithe on my $1,450 a month? It's not taxed so I just want to be prepared if it comes up. If anything there are times WE could benefit from a few bags of groceries (like over the 3 month summer break with no hubby income).
Also, due to my disability, Hubby and I are in the process of declaring bankrupcy. Previously I had been a Psyotherapist, so the sudden loss of my income has devastated us. If I become an active member how do they look at my situation re: tithing ?
