Isn't it wrong to give tithe to a church where there is so much wrong going on? Wouldn't you be promoting the wrong too?

Is it any more wrong than going to a church you don't believe in? The way I see it you have a decision to make.
Either realize that the actions of some individuals may not necessarily represent the views of the goals of the entire church you go to.
Or decide wheather or not another church is right for you.
Or decide if church itself is right for you.
But these are questions only you can decide for yourself.

You are supporting what the organization stands for when you give them money. That's all I can say without knowing what is going on.

Well her screen name ends in a vowel. So if I had to guess she is Italian and Catholic and she is upset about the child molestaion charges in the Catholic Church, and the subsequent alleged coverups by the church itself.

Nobody is perfect. everywhere you go you'll see something is wrong. however if you notice that everybody is trying to cover those actions and you want no part in them then your conscience will kick in and rate it as wrong from your part

If you attend that church, you need to help with the heating, upkeep etc. It is so unfair to judge all churches/priests because of those who are/were sick. There are a lot of good clergy. It is not fair to judge. If you go to church, then support it.Don't go to church if you doubt the mercy God gives to you and us and all sinners.
..Everyone has bills..A household , a business and churches. They depend on their followers to support them.

If there is so much wrong going on in a church, why attend that church? They are obviously hypocritical, but have no problem taking people's money. Giving to a church or religious organization is a voluntary matter, there should not be a requirement to give a determined amount of money. 2 Corinthians 9:7 "Let each one do just as he has resolved in his heart, not grudgingly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver."

Why would anyone in their "right mind" ever choose to support/finance/attend/follow any group or entity whose actions they find disturbing or offensive? Ask that of yourself if you have this concern.

You pay tithing to God, that is your responsibility. Choose the church you think can best make use of it. What they do with it is between them and God. Your obligation to God was satisfied when you willingly and lovingly paid tithing.

Its not out job to judge, remember? If a church is not pleasing to Gid He will take care if it in His time, its not yours to worry about. You guve your tithe to God to help support the churches needs. If you have really good reason to believe the money is being misused for things displeasing to God then give it to Christian charities until you find a more Godly church.

Malachi 3:8-10

8 “Will a man rob God?
Yet you have robbed Me!
But you say,
‘In what way have we robbed You?’
In tithes and offerings.
9 You are cursed with a curse,
For you have robbed Me,
Even this whole nation.
10 Bring all the tithes into the storehouse,
That there may be food in My house,
And try Me now in this,”
Says the Lord of hosts,
“If I will not open for you the windows of heaven
And pour out for you such blessing
That there will not be room enough to receive it.

Tithes go to God not the church.

What does God need money for? Of course the money goes to the church.

2 Corinthians 9:7 tells us that God doesn't want us to give under compulsion, but he "loves a cheerful giver."
