RESEARCH: TITHERS ARE BETTER OFF THAN NON-TITHERS
(This research is not about trying to debate the practice of “tithing” — but rather to demonstrate the impact and giving/financial/spiritual practices of the generous people that DO actively give 10% or more of their income to the LORD’s work. )
Based on the research and calculations of http://www.STATEofthePLATE.info, , an estimated 10 million Americans donate 10% or more of their income each year — this equals over $50 billion given to churches, Christian/charitable organizations, and the needy.
Without the support of these faithful and generous givers, most churches and ministries would quickly cease to exist. When they use the word “tither” in their research, they are using it to refer to the thousands of generous individuals that participated in their surveys that voluntarily DO actively give 10% or more (whether they consider themselves “tithers” or not).
