R. T. Kendall on Tithing

Interesting back-story: R. T. Kendall was raised in Ashland, Kentucky as a Nazarene.  For a short while he even pastored a Church of God (Anderson) congregation in Ohio but it didn't go well, because while a student at Trevecca Nazarene University Kendall became a Calvinist.  He later went on to earn his doctorate at Oxford and pastor Westminster Chapel for 25 years, the pulpit made legendary by men such as George Campbell Morgan and David Martyn Lloyd-Jones.

Another interesting back-story: Kendall's full name is Robert Tillman Kendall, so named after R. T. Williams, a former General Superintendent of the Church of the Nazarene.  However, his family didn't address him as "Robert."  From infancy he was called "R. T."
