G Cambell Morgan on Biblical Stewardship
G. Campbell Morgan (1863-1945), two-time pastor of Westminster Chapel in London, taught that Christians should view their money as belonging 100% to the Lord - all of our resources at His disposal. He took issue with the teaching of tithing:
"I hear a great deal about the tithing of incomes. I have no sympathy with the movement at all. A tenth in the case of one man is meanness, and in the case of another man is dishonesty. I know men today who are Christian men in city churches and village chapels, who have no business to give a tenth of their income to the work of God. They cannot afford it. I know other men who are giving one-tenth, and the nine-tenths they keep is doing harm to their souls."
