Funnily enough, the pentecostal church I went to didn't put a great deal of emphasis on tithing. A collection plate was passed around, yes, but there didn't seem to be any pressure for anyone to actually put anything in it. People did, of course, because they felt they should, but no-one was chastised for not tithing, or not tithing enough.

I think that was probably a bit before Prosperity Gospel hit that particular church.

Yeah. But that's what the first part of understanding everything looks like.
