"The payment of tithing is a test of our faithfulness and loyalty."

  "Come to a church which tithes its members.  As the Prophet Joseph said, a church that does not have the power to call upon its members to sacrifice everything does not have the power to save them.  Come and pay your tithes and offerings; and, as the Lord has promised, he will open up the windows of heaven and pour out a blessing that you have not room to receive. (
Malachi 3:8-10.)"

 Vaughn J. Featherstone, "Commitment," p. 103

        "Tithing has been instituted in the Church in every dispensation when the United Order has not been established. Abraham paid tithes to Melchizedek. In Malachi, one who neglects this law is said to rob God. The Savior sanctions it. In our present dispensation, tithing, the lesser law, exists in place of the United Order."

Genesis 14:18-20; 28:16-22; Malachi 3:8-12; Doctrine and Covenants, Section 119.)" - John A. Widtsoe, "Priesthood and Church Government in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints," [Salt Lake City, Utah: Deseret Book Company, 1954], p. 60

        "Some of you have money problems.  I know that.  There is never enough money in your homes.  I know that.  You are struggling to get along.  What is the cure?  The only thing I know of is payment of tithing.  Now, that doesn't mean that you will have a Cadillac and a mansion.  But it was God who made the promise that He would open the windows of heaven and pour down blessings upon those who walked honestly with Him in the payment of their tithes and offerings, and He has the capacity to keep His promise.  It is my testimony that He does keep that promise."

Gordon B. Hinckley, Oahu, Hawaii, regional conference, 18 Feb. 1996
