J. Golden Kimball was addressing an assembly of BYU students on the subject of tithing. He asked the young people how many paid a full tithing, and only about a fourth raised their hands. Brother Kimball then said, “How many of you would die for the Gospel?” Everybody shot up their hands. “That’s what I thought,” he said, “you’d rather die than pay your tithing.” (The J.
