Is it binding on Christians to make a 10% tithe to their place of worship?

From observations … not even the Ten Commandments are binding on Christians.

No. Christians are not commanded to tithe. God himself put an end to the Mosaic Law, with its tithing arrangements, nailing it to Jesus’ torture stake. (Romans 6:14; Colossians 2:13, 14) Instead of being required to give a specified amount to defray congregation expenses, therefore, Christians make voluntary contributions.

Of course, if a Christian voluntarily (not binding) chooses to give a tenth of his income to advance true worship, there would be no Scriptural objection to his making such donations.

Tithing was part of the Mosaic Law, which was done away with by the ransom sacrifice of Jesus. Scripturally, any donations to given to a Christian organization should be voluntary and can be of any amount the donor chooses.

Tithing was at one time a requirement of most "organized religions".  It is a voluntary gift you and the Lord decide upon.
