    Lmao, this whole tithe fiasco has taught me that majority of modern pastors are using Christianity as a self-enrichment tool. Just look at how pressed they’ve all been by just one common guy (Freeze) commenting on tithing on social media! They pulled out all the big guns: from insinuating in sermons to outright name calling & now Pastor’s sons are posting petty messages? But I’m not surprised as they’re only protecting the family dollars…. You can’t serve both God & money & it’s pretty obvious where their loyalties lie.

    For starters, none of them could ever sell all their property & give to the poor like Jesus ordered or even like the first church used to do in Act. They’ve never even considered it. Meanwhile, Nigerians are so much in chains that we can’t do some self reflection on how blessed following all these ‘men of God’ has made us. We depend on so called ‘heathen nations’ to eat even as we sit on wealthy. Oh well, let me run away before some zealous followers bombard me with Bible verses to support their private jet riding ‘Daddies’ lol.

      It is amazing how people don’t do an intellectual and historical research before dispensing information regarding a public figure. I do not attend the Redeemed Church but do you know that Pastor Adeboye sold his only car to win souls years ago. I don’t understand all these stress about tithing. Those who pay theirs understand what they see. I am ready for abundant criticisms on this platform. It pleases me to pay my tithe and I love it. I can’t be called broke. Praise the Lord. Tithing does not deter me from being generous towards widows, orphans and the poor. After doing all these, I still have reasons to thank God.

      For your info RCCG isn’t owned by Adeboye neither did found it. He is not a sole signatory to RCCG accounts. He is on salary. If you know RCCG you should have known he has no access to the funds. Research or shut it.
      Bye.

    So it’s all these that will bring people closer to God? There is something very wrong with the brand of Christianity being practiced in Nigeria. No focus on salvation, no focus on love for God or your neighbors (the greatest commandments). It’s all about increasing numbers =>> increasing offerings. What a shame.

    Bragging about increase in tithes and Shiloh attendance. Just look at him!!! Is that what you guys were sent to do? Collect tithes? Or is that your own definition of “the Great Commission”? No where did you mention improved living conditions of those suffering around you. Only increase in tithes.

      We just love to shout in the name of Jesus. Amen. Using God’s name in vain. Look at the society around u. Despite all churches does it look heaven like? Money money money is what is being collected as if salvation is bought. Africans our stupidity knows no bounce. We tend to keep God aside and put men infront. A pastor can’t say God’s wrath wld fall on people for not paying tithes and we find it Okay. God is giver of all things and he isn’t always waiting to punish people. Christ preached love love love and we don’t practise it. Flying in jets while tithers use okada or trek to church. Government officials steal millions and give the crumbs as tithes and it’s welcomed. God’s wrath does not fall on them since they have given.

      I see why 54 countries are the laughing stock of the whole world.

    This is the problem with this statement and that of 96% of pastors that have replied Daddy Freeze: Have the chances of a single soul going to heaven increased? You see, we tend to focus more on the messenger and forget the message, forget the reason for the treason, forget the one true goal. It is known fact that most pentecostals have forgotten about the message Jesus died for and look up to their so called Daddy GOs and Papas. I’m not even in any way attacking anyone. But I’ve said it before, >90% of all of us paying tithes, going to church 7 days a week, burning earrings and trousers are going to hell because we are doing it for the people, doing it for the so called blessings from “Pastor”. What are you doing for God? What do you do when no one is looking, how do you treat strangers, the destitute, less privileged, prostitutes and “people of the world”. If you drop dead this very minute as you read this, where are you going? Heaven? Hell? Purgatory? (Catholics). Does your life truly operate by the WORD or by the WORLD? Put an end to your religious hullabaloo and face your Jesus squarely. Keep quiet and listen to the Spirit and his gentle words, Let people see God through you. Let people believe in God through you. Don’t be that RCCG member that started insulting me when I refused to collect his tract to invite me for their church programme. Or the two women that rained curses on my bestie because she passed the front of an MFM branch dressed in a mini dress. Leave the activity, cling to the spirituality. Cell fellowship, big offering and tithe or choir practice will not save you. A true destruction of your fleshly desire and human centered acts is what will save you. What will save you is if you drop your bad baggage, shed away worldly desires and behaviours and ACT LIKE JESUS DID WHEN HE WAS AMONG US. Dear Pastor Leke or Mr. Leke, stop the personal glorification. Stop talking about your flimsy television programs and ego-boosting email messages of praise and adoration. We will continue to pay our tithe, but will we also continue to lie, steal and judge? Do you really care more about tithes and increase in viewers than shepherding your flock to the promised land? My dear fellow Christians, stop glorifying your pastors and religion, please LOOK UP TO THE CROSS FOR THERE LIES OUR KEY TO SALVATION. Jesus did not come here to receive cane and crown of pako to create religion but to establish a chance for redemption.

    I find it very hard to believe that the tithes have increased as à result of freeze’s anti tithe campaign. This is just damage control and a desperate attempt to save face and make it look like daddy freeze is not making any impact. When infact the opposite is the case. If daddy freeze wasn’t making any impact they wouldn’t dedicate this much time to reponding to him. I mean the father responded with threats and now change of tactics, son responds as though daddy freeze posts are not That big a deal. Nice PR Strategy but we are not fooled. And why is adeboyes son responding? Oh it’s a family ministry oops sorry family business.

    So many pastors all responding and threatening one man because he spoke against tithing? And these people say it is God they worship and not MONEY?

    The past few Sundays in church have been all kinds of damage control through sermons some pastors boldly referring to freeze while others treading carefully so that freeze doesn’t respond to them but still trying hard to get people not to listen to freeze. Freeze is definitely making IMPACT. If not why try to get him fired? Why the aggression towards him? Why all the panic?

    It’s a new day people. Stay woke! I hope freeze stays on course and doesn’t yield to the bullying.

      December 11, 2017 at 4:38 pm

      I was thinking the same and then I thought it’s actually possible they have increased…….temporarily. The blow is coming for these churches stealing from the poor in the name of the Lord. One day for the owner. Only 1.

    • Nekiss

      December 11, 2017 at 5:10 pm

      when people preach heresy, there’s nothing wrong in doing damage control for the sake of the weak and immature Christians who are not yet well rooted in the word. tithing is an instruction from God, the rich or poor pastors didnt give the instruction, therefore, leave them alone and wait until God complains to you that He is not happy with the Pastors. Freeze or whatever he is called is looking for cheap publicity and he has gotten it, but truly he is treading on a very dangerous ground and he is succeeding because many so called Christians dont make out time to read their bibles.
      On a final note, Freeze and his followers should know that when you point a finger at somebody, 4 fingers will be pointing to you. A word is enough for the wise.
      NB: I am not a pastor, neither am I a pastor’s child and none of my relations is a pastor, I am just someone that manages to read my bible and I know what it says, so no false teacher can confuse me by God’s grace no matter how many people support him..

      we only read and respond to what we want to. He also talked about people listening to messages….that can bring salvation my dear. In as much as I think his post is not necessary, because silence should have been the best answer to Freeze and his followers, all the same, his post didnt only imply that more people pay tithe, it also implies that more people who dont have time to listen to gospel messages which leads to repentance in most cases now do.

    Mr Leki na you Sabi
    I’m. Sure some day when your father is called and he’s no more You and your siblings will inherit all that money increase of tithe you claim (no evidence)

    Time will tell. Our mumu don do, Thanks to Freeze we are now delving into the scriptures ourselves and reading for our selves and letting the holy spirit interpret the word to us.

    Stay woke everyone. Help the poor directly yourself you don’t need a middleman 419 pastor to do God’s work in helping the poor yourself. Help someone with school fees, give them your old clothes shoes, pay a widows rent, pay a poor person apprenticeship fees to learn trade eg hair dressing, seamstress, makeup school, etc

    If you buy from street hawkers or vendors especially young and old pay 10x or 20x more the price and don’t collect your change just tellthem God has put in your heart to bless them.

    Keep the TAPChallenge going. Once you do it you tap your friend to the challenge.

    If adeboye and all these thieves who call themselves pastors are telling you if you don’t pay tithe to them and their church but rather you paying DIRECTLY TO THE POOR WILL SEND YOU TO HELL well may they end up in hell first.

    You don’t have however to be Dangote rich to do this challenge, however poor you think you are someone is poorer than you so let’s all eradicate poverty.. Don’t listen to these thieves called pastors instead of using 80% of our tithe money to help the poor they are only using 5%.

    December 11, 2017 at 4:56 pm

    Oh please! Who are these people saying the are now focusing on tithes than salvation?! If you take out time to listen to most of his messages, you will know that He preaches about salvation and holiness than any other topic. But of course, some of you are going to say “who wants to listen to him, blah blah blah…” but if you do, it will put an end to all those ignorant comments!

  18. Engoz

    December 11, 2017 at 5:11 pm

    This is not a credible argument. Just a sentimental approach.

    I’ll just post what I’ve posted before

    This mockery of God and Christianity has to stop. By the logic of you don’t tithe God will not bless you or the devourer will devour your resources, tithers should be the most successful people on earth, who don’t go through problems in their lives. But we know that is not the case. You are calling God a liar by your human rationalization of his word.

    Giving a tenth predates the law, but it was NOT a commandment of God at the time of Abraham or Jacob. How does that translate to Christians must tithe? Abraham tithing was NOT a commandment from God. So using the Melchizedek principle as a reason to tithe is not being honest. This same Melchizedek principle, it is shown explicitly how Jesus has taken over the Priesthood in Hebrews 7, Hebrews 8:6-13. Jesus is very clear how we can give to him.

    Matt 25:40-45 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.” Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink,I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.’”They also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?’”He will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the LEAST OF THESE, YOU DID NOT DO FOR ME.’

    This is in line with the NEW testament mandate of giving generously.

    You cannot quote Luke 11:42, Malachi 3:10 which are scriptures enforcing the law, and then in the same breathe claim you are under a Melchizedek principle which again I reiterate was not a commandment. The Jews were commanded to tithe because they were under the law? Are Christians under the law?

    Concerning Matthew 5:17.
    “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them.”

    To fulfill is to bring to COMPLETION! It was not until Jesus died that the law was made obsolete. On the cross Jesus said “it is finished”. John 19:30

    Gal 3:19
    Why, then, was the law given at all? It was added because of transgressions UNTIL the Seed to whom the promise referred had come. The law was given through angels and entrusted to a mediator.

    Gal 3:24
    So the law was our guardian until Christ came that we might be justified by faith.

    Gal 3:10 For all who rely on the works of the law are under a curse, as it is written: “Cursed is everyone who does not continue to do everything written in the Book of the Law.”

    The argument -does that mean we should ignore the moral etiquettes in the law like sexual immorality does not fly, because Galatians 5:19 is clear on this.

    You can make your vows with God as Jacob did. But you have no scriptural rights to demand such from God’s people under his new covenant. There are other works that predates the law. Burnt offering predates the law. Circumcision predates the law, which was a commandment given to Abraham and his descendants. Even circumcision which was a commandment, was done away with in the new testament. Christians cite getting circumcised as ‘partaking in Abraham’s blessings”. But Gal5:2 is clear “Mark my words! I, Paul, tell you that if you let yourselves be circumcised, Christ will be of no value to you at all.” NIV. The KJV writes “Behold, I Paul say unto you, that if ye be circumcised, Christ shall profit you nothing.”

    Tithing is in the law, first fruits, burnt sacrifice, circumcision -all in the law. If you are arguing that since it predates the law, ‘so we must do it’, then we should also be willing to practice burnt sacrifices.

    Expose yourself to the TRUTH. This conversation have made me realize that knowledge and wisdom is TRULY a gift given as the Spirit pleases. Not all fire breathing Christians have wisdom or knowledge or understanding.

    1Corinthians 12:8-10
    8 To one there is given through the Spirit a message of wisdom, to another a message of knowledge by means of the same Spirit, 9 to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by that one Spirit, 10 to another miraculous powers, to another prophecy, to another distinguishing between spirits, to another speaking in different kinds of tongues,[a] and to still another the interpretation of tongues.

    Paul encourages to pray to have all these gifts but The fact that one speaks in tongues or ‘hear from the spirit’ as they claim does not mean they have wisdom or knowledge.

    Galatians 5:1
    5 It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.

    This was Paul’s response to those who wants to drag us back to the law.

      Engoz All that epistle you wrote is just pure nonsense

      DONT YOU DARE THROW SAND IN PEOPLES EYES TO TWIST THIS THING TO PUT ANY GUILT TRIP ON ANY BODY TO SAY ANYONE IS MOCKING GOD,

      NOBODY IS MOCKING GOD –

      so stop deviating from the main topic and PUT ANY GUILT TRIP ON ANYBODY. – IT WONT WORK ANYMORE

      You can pull that guilt trip bull**** which you have been able to pull over for decades and threatening people –

      –IF YOU DONT PAY TITHE GOD WILL CURSE YOU, AND YOUR FAMILY
      — IF YOU DONT PAY TITHE GOD WILL NOT BLESS YOU
      —IF YOU DONT PAY TITHE BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH

      YOU ARE ALL BORN AND BRED THIEVES FROM THE PIT OF HELL

      That nonsense will not work anymore. Because guess what – like someone mentioned. Thanks to Freeze now in 2017 he has caused masses to finally open our bibles to read for ourselves and dont have to listen to any FAKE PRIVATE JET FLYING PASTOR to tell us what the bible saids. All that stuff you posted – we already read it in the bible ourselves and the holy spirit has given us our own interpretation, so please shut up and stop all the ranting.

      I choose to live my New Testament Laws because Jesus died for me in then and said i should help the poor so that is what i will choose to do, like most Fortune 500 BILLIONAIRES philanthropist do. None of them pay tithe they give to the poor in masses, unlike your daddy GOs who are getting billions in annual tithe and only spending 5 % on poor and the rest 95% in buying private jets, luxury homes here and abroad etc etc . THEY ARE ALL BORN AND BRED THIEVES

      -I will not live by any Leviticus law of Malachi 3:10 which you are tell ing our congregation and fear mongering IF YOU DONT PAY GOD WILL CURSE OR that there is no GRACE and the only time GOD will bless you is if you PAY HIM TITHE. If i will not be blessed because i choose not to pay tithe but rather use my money to pay someones school fees – then so be it.

      Again i say you and all the top daddy GOS are born and bred THIEVES

      THAT REVERSE PSYCHOLOGY AND GUILT TRIP NONSENSE ONLY WORKS ON LAZY CHRISTIANS WHO REFUSE TO READ AND STUDY THE BIBLE FOR THEMSELVES FOR GOD TO GIVE THEM REVELATION AND REAL MEANING TO THE SCRIPTURES – and be sitting there like mumus listening to interpretations by fake pastors.

      Oh and one more thing – you better not come in here with that sanctimonious nonsense of TOUCH NOT MY ANNOINTED. –

      I ask you who is anointed – I am annointed just like your Daddy GO, one person is no more annointed than the other cos he stands in the pullpit. I became anointed when Jesus died for me. I dont need a middle man between me and God, If i want blessing from God i can read and study the word for myself, ask the holy spirit for interpretation , stick by my new testament laws and help the poor and be part of the #TAP Challenge.

      I dont need to go sit on a fake daddy GOs chair and rub my hands all around it cos i feel he is Gods assistant and when i do so God will bless me.

      You are all FAKE PASTORS – god will punish you people for letting the poor in your community suffer as you live the luxe life. All the many private jets yall have – why didnt you gather them to go to libya to save Nigerians and other immigrants. You will have time to respond to Freeze but none oyall fake pastors said one thing about the slavery in Libya -not one of you

    People really don’t like Pastors speaking out or responding to these issues… I also don’t. I wish they would face their ministry and not respond on a personal note to this issue..

    Funny how we think Pastors should be meek and quiet as a lamb. I don’t quite think that is how Jesus was though…

    I personally pay my tithe to the church that I attend and also give to charity and to families and friends. I will never stop giving and will continue to do so. If anything, I am looking for new avenues to give to the church and to my community. I have seen how giving has impacted my life and the lives of others around me. My church is well equipped and does a lot of outreach in the community and impacting the lives of the congregation, myself and my family inclusive. I have seen God’s mighty hand in the things that concern me and mine and I am blessed to be connected to a ministry like my church – I wonder how the church is to be sustained if we as believers of the Gospel stop giving to the work of the ministry of Jesus. For example, most people watch The Experience, a free gospel outreach concert yet not many wonder how much goes into planning events of such magnitude. And no, it’s not just a music concert – it’s all about your expectations when you attend these church events. If you go to be entertained, then you will be, but if you go with the expectation of a spiritual connection, you will receive that too. I have heard testimonies of people whose lives got positively transformed – these things are spiritual so I don’t try to over analyse how God works. He after all uses the foolish things to confound the wise. The church does a lot of work in the community but we choose to publicize the sensational. Anyway, as for me and my home, we will serve the Lord with our substance and I will continue to work out my own salvation and focus on my focus.

    Hopefully this tithe brouhaha will blow over in 2018. One thing I know is that those who have received a conviction about tithes will not stop giving because someone said not to

    • anon

      December 11, 2017 at 6:37 pm

      nobody said not to give. See? You people are deliberately missing the point or twisting the words of people to shame them into silence. As if the people questioning are not good Christians or as if they don’t pay tithes. Freeze never said tithing is bad. Rather, what are these churches doing with the money and why do they place such an emphasis on tithing when people can set out that 10% to help poor Nigerians which are increasingly the majority in the society today. They have money enough for 4 private jets (it’s like £3000 to park and maintain one everyday. Minus tax and other costs), expensive private unis and houses abroad, they are on Forbes list etc. Where is that money coming from when it’s a ministry? The Catholic church is the richest organisation in the world but the Pope doesn’t have a bank account or £1 to his name. Every amount spent by the church is accounted for. We want that transparency and accountability in Pentecostal churches. They say they are charities so they don’t pay tax, so where is their private wealth coming from? How are they spending the money etc These are questions I know you don’t have the answer to, but nigerians think keeping quiet at your own peril is submission. That’s why women are dying in marriages, people are being abused and exploited by politicians, pastors, policeman, SARS, lecturers etc. We need to push people into accountability. In America, when an American politician gets caught cheating on his wife, he resigns. It doesn’t mean they are perfect, but at least there is a system of accountability..

      @adelegirl Pastors can respond but their responses must be in Line with the Bible that they supposedly believe and preach. The Bible is the authority NOT the man of God. None of the pastors have responded according to scripture. Daddy freeze who they refer to as worldly has consistently used the scriptures to draw conclusions about tithing. Not only have the pastors not responded using scriptures they have not shown any maturity in their responses which is Not what we expect from preachers who claim to have been walking with the Lord for decades. This guy has been attacked, threatened, cursed etc.

      I have to ask you this…….. If your pastor preached something that was not in line with scripture would you take his word or the word of God? Do you worship your pastor or do you worship God? If indeed it is God you worship and not the pastor then you should rate what his word says above whatever the pastor says. Pls show us where in the New Testament the disciples or Jesus himself collected tithe. Also what was Jesus referring to when he said “it is finished” and the veil of the temple in the Old Testament was torn? Why don’t we sacrifice bulls and lambs for the atonement of our sins? What was the purpose for Jesus death on the cross especially since there was already an existing law and covenant in place before he died? Since Jesus has died on the cross what has his death and resurrection changed? What is the new covenant? Who’s the new covenant for? PlS answer these questions biblically

      The tithing argument is not about giving nor against giving (the new testament is clear on this, you must give cheerfully and generously as a christian, there are no percentages to which christians can give), but that the conclusion and rationalization to which we have been brought up to tithe is FLAWED and corrupt.

      I was brought up in the church and growing up tithing was preached under the subject of pastor being the ‘new levites’. Hebrews 6,7,8 exposes this lie. Now the deflection is to use the Melchizedek principle, whereas Jesus has taken over this priesthood and has sacrificed all that we needed to do on the cross. Christ has paid it all.

      If we are being honest, a lot of you are paying tithes out of FEAR. Fear that your finances will be ruined, or God will punish you. God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. 2Tim 1:7

    There is so much wickedness in Nigeria. Most religious people from both divides are pure hypocrites! Worse that the Pharisees, Sadducees and Scribes. IT IS EASIER FOR A CAMEL TO PASS THROUGH THE EYE OF A NEEDLE THAN FOR A RICH MAN TO ENTER HEAVEN. You cannot serve Hod and Mammon/Money.
    Tithing is not a pre-requisite for salvation or making heaven.
    If you tithe, make sure you keep all the Mosaic Laws and while you are at it also KEEP THE SABBATH DAY instead of worshipping on Sunday.

    “Not those who call me Lord, Lord will enter the Kingdom of Heaven,” said Jesus Christ.

      How many people did Jesus Christ collect tithes from?
      You pay tithe to your pastors but do not pay tithe according to Deuteronomy14:22-29 to the orphans, widows, strangers, levites. That makes you a transgressor of the Law, a hypocrite and robber.

    My Concern is most of this so called Freeze followers are non-christians behind letters who have been given undue platform to speak against the church…i’m far dissapointed with bloggers because they had a part to play in this at the expense of their faith…if they are at all Christians!

    The love of money is the root of ALL EVILS FOR some people eager for money have wandered from faith and pierced themselves with many sorrows Timothy 6:10
    Mark 10:25. It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God
    christianity christlike. Christ never lived a luxury life style , he did not encourage it. He said to zacchaeus the rich man if you want to follow me sell off all your worldly posessions and give to the poor follow me. Zecchaeus find him level quick luke 19:1-10.
    Non of these pastors use these verses to teach people about christ instead the malachi sow a seed havest billions is preached. Hummm.

    I think I have to step in on this Daddy Freeze/tithe issue. It’s either Freeze is backslidden or he lied when on his Sunday morning show some years back, I remember him saying he gives 20% Tithe. He said he increased it from 10% to 20% cos of the blessing attached to it. He even went on to tell people to ask his pastors. I also remember that he used to send a copy of these messages on request via email. So please if you received that message, please share so that Freeze would stop deceiving people. If he has problems with the Nation, He should openly speak against the Government. Not Pastors.

      You’re right. He’s a case of a backslided Christian and Satan got a hold on his confused spirit and decided to manipulate against the Church, to attack it and divide it against itself, but shame to them. The Word of Go remains quick and powerful. God bless you

    Truly, the Nigerian style of practicing religion is beyond simple comprehension but I will not delve into any epistle to buttress this point- a lot of us know this already but we are too foolish to be normal.

    Just yesterday I drove past CanaanLand, same spot where convenant university is. You should have seen the eye sore it was of the front of this place. Piles of rubbish, over crowded environment, the poverty stricken surrounding and just plain dirty. And I thought,so with all the money this church makes – they can’t even turn that road to an attraction… it is well, I guess they are waiting for Bell’s university or maybe the government

    If you are giuving tithes so that floodgates will open for you and do not give to poor people who need food to eat then you are not a nice person talkless of a Christians . it would be less hypocritical if you guy invest Money in the national lottery. Selecting/editing/taking scriptures out of context to serve your purpose is BLASPHEMOUS . It is my observation that in nigerian and other countries on any given sunday their are more christlike people outside the church thanthe Pious ones inside it.

    Let’s not talk about tithe for a minute…let’s talk about LOVE. Most of your comments say we should focus on love (I AGREE) ….But look at YOUR COMMENTS!

    It is shameful.

    Only very few of you were able to state your opinion without insults or demeaning phrases.

    If you want LOVE to be the forerunner then BE LOVE.

    You are NIGERIA.

    You dont have to agree on any matter…But you can communicate your points valid or not…with dignity and fear of God.

    You guys only saw the tithe part, but let me just summarize what he meant to say..

    God will build His Church and the gates of hell will not prevail!!

    Criticism is good but when it’s done in hatred , to bring division ,…when people who call themselves Christians begin to spite their fellow Christains.. then that is not criticism. That is demonic.

    We may continue this tithe conversation for ever but let us note that people will keep giving to the cause of the gospel. There are just somethings that cannot be won.

    Give your tithe if you wish, give it to the motherless….. give it to someone in need.. pls by all means do but because you don’t understand why people choose to pay their tithe to the church is your own problem. let us all live

    So Christianity says people should not ask vital questions? Resorting to name calling from ur side and that of these pastors who won’t acknowledge questions and provide answers but reign curses is quite an interesting form of Christianity. I expect u all to answer one question. When did Paul who wrote most of the new testament or Christ who died for our sins ask or collect tithes? Since blessings come from tithes why is Africa backward in thought and economy? A continent where we all call Jesus every second but are very deceptive, corrupt and unforgiving.

    Manipulation is the greatest tool of Satan. He always uses someone familiar to the community of Christians to cause hatred and divisions amongst them. Just like our Saviour Jesus said, take heed to what you hear, lest you fall like some who were too familiar with The Word and miss Heaven because of your own wisdom and unbelief. I pray we all realize the true purpose and will we were created by God to accomplish. Brethren, Seek ye first The Kingdom of God (mysteries and secrets) and His righteousness (the lifestyle and mind of Christ), and all other things shall be added unto you. Shalom

    Why don’t you pray and ask for your own wisdom to understand… Apostle Paul has one head, ur so call “Daddy Freeze” has one head and Daddy GO has one head.. You all said u were deceive by a “man” but now ur eyes are open becos a “man” has revealed to you , are u not still being deceive, why can’t you pray and ask for wisdom to understand… Jesus said if we believe, we will do great and mighty things much more than he did..
    So if u have prayed and God reveal whatever he did, either it is to pay ur tithe to d church or give to ur neighbors or beggars, pls do so with love and those that don’t believe in your way, just pray God gives them understanding and do it silently biko… Worship me in silence, and stop making unnecessary noise… God bless you
