    The same pastors who say that usually endorse tithing, vs. giving from the heart. Tithing is a duty under the mosaic law. Giving from the goodness of your heart is a new testament idea.

    The Torah also uses the phrase “willing heart” when it refers to gifts made during the construction of the tabernacle in the desert.

    I think the heart determines it all.

    They are against being taxed but gladly accept their own tax called a tithe.

    A tithe is not a tax. The tither believes that he is joyfully offering back to God the first fruits. Giving to the government is giving to the government.

    Tithes pay the churches bills.

    Let me understand this, a tithe is generally understood as 10% of one’s income (some would say net but let us assume gross after expenses) which means that the Gasoline Alley garage shows a pretax profit of $100,000.00.Slim and Clovia live in a 2nd floor walkup, cannot afford a car/truck and when was the last time any one saw Gretchen (35yrs old) or Rover (about 30yrs old)? Just asking.

    Are people still trying to cram the stand-alone Sunday comic into this thread? Nothing has indicated Slim and Clovia donated anything close to $10,000

    My home congregation encourages people to give “in support of God’s mission…” As one pastor said, “We shovel in, God shovels out. God’s shovel is bigger.” The pledge form also asks us to commit to worship attendance, service, study, prayer, inviting others. We are an active part of our community, especially in terms of service.

    I asked this question the other day but got no response. What characters are still in this strip? It seems to be mainly Slim Clovia, Joel, Rufus, Skkezix, and Walt, who looks in pretty good shape for someone who is about 120 or so. Do other characters appear?
