You can use the Bible to say whatever you want it to say. This guy has his opinion on what it all means and others have their opinion and there are so many different opinions that it leaves a person confused.
The only thing left to do is obey what God puts on your heart, but you must be a saved person to even know what Gods will for you. So it becomes something between you and God, and nobody else should know how much you give.
I personally believe tithing is just a basic standard, we should give more than just 10% since God gave us everything we have we should give back generously to Him. I don't like folks here saying that my money is going to my pastor, that's false. My money goes to the Lord and the Lord gives some to my pastor so he can live a decent life.
The pastor is appointed by God to shepherd us sheep, he knows Gods word better than all of these sheep here who are self appointed authorities on the Bible. God only reveal the truth of the Bible to certain people and He deliberately confuses others who think they are smart.
You're overlooking one important point: God confounds the wise... of the world, not of His kingdom! He makes His servants wise. Most of those here who disagree with you are Christians, not the unsaved.
Our pastor encourages all of us to study our Bible to make sure that what he preaches is exactly what the Bible says.
But at the end of the day, we are the sheep and He is the shepherd, that's the way God has ordained the NT Church. We need to be careful of people who make themselves some kind of authority on scripture, God only gives that privileged to those who serve as shepherds.
