You are equivocating. But more interestingly, the verses you've cited do not mention the word "tithe" at all! Is this what happens when you declaim The Bible as GUIDELINES?

Luke 21:1-4 And he [Jesus] looked up, and saw the rich men casting their gifts into the treasury. And he saw also a certain poor widow casting in thither two mites. And he said, Of a truth I say unto you, that this poor widow hath cast in more than they all: for all these have of their abundance cast in unto the offerings of God: but she of her penury hath cast in all the living that she had.

When kings (or other administrative bodies) levy a charge, such as import duty, there is an element of coercion. Usually quite strong. Smuggling brandy carries severe penalties for example and running a business "off the books" gets you some serious time. The widow contributed 100% voluntarily and was praised by Jesus. In your model He should have said, "Oi! OI!! Youse over there!!! Get ere with that treasury key! Go on!! Go on!!! Open re up, give back the two mites," (toys with whip) because when inappropriate means were used for revenue raining in other circumstances He's taken a very direct approach hadn't He.

Jesus time having come TO BEGIN HIS MINISTRY is not the same as Jesus time having come TO END HIS MINISTRY. The distinction is obvious to any two-year-old LEADING UP TO a birthday party and then AS IT'S ABOUT TO FINISH. You seem to like BIG LETTERS so I've used a few here for you.

Because if threats were made by Churches to get money out of their congregations, that would be EXTORTION. And extortion rackets are against the law. Perhaps in your Scripture knowledge class you missed Titus 3:1-11?
