Omoyeyo said: "Bishop Oyedepo is right, Heaven will not built itself. There are so many uncomplicated building in heaven that needs completion. Angel Gabriel needs money for cement, sands and golden roofing. Na una dey make the second coming of Christ to be delayed. Repent!"
@esusmith said; "That was against us, He took it out of the way and nailed it to the cross. If Christ nailed it to His cross, who is that person that can unnail it? As a Jew if you didnt have a tithe or offering you couldn't go to worship at the temple... Paul too didn't pay tithes."
@Babatundey13 said; "How come Bishop Oyedepo never quote this part of the Bible.
2 Corinthians 9:7 (NIV) says, "Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.”
@GeorgeFreeborn7 said; "Let them therefore think, not in terms of tithes, but in the affection of allness, and thus gain entrance into everlasting abodes through their true Friends, Jehovah God and his Son Christ Jesus.—Luke 16:9."
