Amazing quote on money

This comes from Dr. Gordon Fee of Regent College in a lecture series he did with Bruce Waltke on Biblical Theology (thank you to Brad Holaway for exposing me to this series). The quote is not exactly exact, but it's plenty close enough...

"I think 'tithing' is a bad practice. It's a bad practice to have and it's a bad practice to preach. The problem with tithing is that it eventually stands itself against generosity, and this is, oh, so much better!"
