Tithing:10% off the NET or GROSS?

Our Pastor often quotes old testament sources (Genesis 14) as a biblical basis to give 10% off the gross income. While I am not opposed to sacrificial giving that Jesus calls us to, but using the Old Testament to justify the 10% off the gross income is a very shaky position.

Our pastor is sure to call out that this is not a salvation issue but it still just bothers me that He makes it seem like the Bible for certain tells us that our goal should be 10% of the Gross.
