Recall that few days ago popular pastor and the founder of Living faith church aka winners chapel made a very controversial statement on tithing. The man of God said that tithing is an obligation and anyone who doesn't pay tithe is under a course. The statement although might sound right in some person's ear but the fact still remains that tithing is not compulsory.
Popular and controversial OAP, Daddy Freeze and comedian basketmouth has reacted angrily to Bishop Oyedepo's statement countering his statement. Daddy Freeze reacted by saying that it is ''Utter Nonsense'' to say that anyone who doesn't pay tithe is under a course. Daddy Freeze said paying tithe is never a guarantee to prosperity, sitting the likes of Bill Gate, Jeff Bezos, and Warren Buffet who are the richest men in the world today that didn't pay or believe in tithe but still became wealthy.
Daddy Freeze further stated and i quote;
''Christ didn't collect tithe neither did his disciples, yet no one was cursed! Tithing is the old law, obeying the old law partially without obeying all the 613 laws of moses is what carries a curse. That is why to us Christians, it is referred to as the law of sin and death''!
Popular celebrity comedian and actor, Basket mouth also reacted to Bishop Oyedepo's statement on tithing saying that the church is now threatening people with a financial curse over tithe in a bad economy.
What is your opinion on this? What do you think of the statement made by Bishop Oyedep concerning tithing? And do you think Daddy freeze and basket mouth spoke the right thing in their reactions? Drop your comments and don't forget to like and share. Thanks.
