You see ehn, when you cook area soup, every meat feel say dem go get mouth for the matter. Where we dey find meat inside pot, ponmo sef go dey raise hand say “Here I am! Here I am!!” Leather o. Ordinary belt strap. If care is not taken, periwinkle go talk put.
In the ongoing battle of sense vs belief in Nigeria vis a vis: to tithe or not to tithe, the latest pastor to speak up has been none other than the G-wagon buying, actress-shagging church leader, awa fada in deh Lord Apornstu Suleman.
The General Overseer of Omega Fire Ministries worldwide (OFM) has waded into the tithing controversy that has been trending online.
On the issue, the Pastor said “If anyone is not a pastor, he has no right to attack a pastor on such matters. He should leave everything to God.”
😂😂😂 Wetin again e for talk? Expensive cars don’t buy themselves so I don’t expect him to have a different opinion. Running an international honeypot ring is neither for the poor nor for the faint of heart.
You want to take a church member to “a higher level of grace“? You’re gonna need more than anointing; you’re gonna need cash money. Private jets are expensive and they’re not acquired by letting the people think for themselves.
So, no, with the exception of Pastor Tunde Bakare, I don’t think another pastor in the entire nation will support Daddy Freeze on this matter. Lord knows even I am struggling to support him; it comes to something when it is Daddy Freeze that has to speak up for those against tithing.
Read what he said below:
“Let it be clear that if anyone is not a pastor, he has no right to attack a pastor on church issue. He should leave everything to God. I only laugh. Somebody who is not a doctor cannot teach a certified doctor how to go about doing his job; he will just be laughed at. Someone who is not a journalist can’t teach a true journalist how he should do his work; they will just be laughing at him.
I wouldn’t have spoken on the issue but you don’t argue with a man whose mind is already made up on any issue. It is futile. And I’m not going to confuse anybody to pay tithe, no. if you attend my church and you decide not to pay tithe, it’s left to you. In my church they don’t pay me allowance. I live on my personal businesses and I write books. So far, I have written 52 books that are inspirational and I’m still writing. If you write books that are inspirational, believers and non-believers will buy. It is not as if it is only church members that buy pastors’ books. That alone is enough to sustain any pastor. So, you don’t just jump to criticise any pastor for buying private jets of expensive cars because you think it is tithe that they use to buy them.
If you asked me, there is nothing wrong with tithing. But tithes should be used by pastors to maintain Christianity, assist the poor in the church, the vulnerable and the stranded. Not that everything should go into the pastor’s pocket, that’s wrong. Every pastor should be on allowance.
That young man does not deserve a response; in fact, I’m not talking because of him but because my Papa, Pastor Adeboye had spoken, I’m speaking on the issue. Now, if it requires that we go into a debate, let’s have it. Yes, your tithe is not a license to make heaven but it is an acknowledgement of God’s mercy in your life. But because Papa Adeboye corrected the wrong notion and the young man dared to respond to him, I felt it was insulting. This is not about sentiment or emotion, it is about commonsense. You don’t respond to an elder in certain manner, especially a man of Pastor Adeboye’s standing.
There are things people shouldn’t just dabble into especially when it is not their field. Even if you mobilise the whole world against tithing, you will only end up being counterproductive because this is not your field. Men of God do not need to react to such issues because like I said earlier, once somebody has made up his mind on a position, nobody should argue with such a man. My reaction to such a man is, if that is your position, keep it, continue with what you believe but don’t confuse people to believe what you believe.”
Lol. Pastors are now unquestionable and untouchable – either as a result of their calling or their age. We’ve heard o, Apostu, but…a shi ma pe yin, koi ti kan yin. When we need advice on how to make a vehicle’s registration disappear clean off the registration database, we’ll be sure to holla. Selah.
