You’re under a financial curse if you don’t pay tithe – Bishop Oyedepo
David Oyedepo, the presiding Bishop of Living Faith Church Worldwide alias Winners’ Chapel International, says individuals who don’t allow their tithe to the church are under a financial curse.
The Bishop, who is named Nigeria’s richest pastor by Forbes, stated this in a series of tweets on Thursday.
The clergy tweeted, “Tithing is an inescapable covenant obligation. Prosperity not just wealth is impossible without tithing because when you are not paying tithe, you’re under a financial curse.”
In the following tweets on Friday, Oyedepo, mentioned many issues males encounter might be tracked to their financial dealings.
“The way you handle your financial dealings determines greatly what happens to you financially. Many things that afflict men are traceable to their monetary dealings. False financial dealings can open doors to inexplicable afflictions,” he mentioned.
While Oyedepo’s message was effectively obtained by lots of his adherents, some faultfinders on social media depicted his statement as archaic and improper.
Famous Broadcaster, Ifedayo Olarinde also referred to as Daddy Freeze, explained on social media that Oyedepo’s message was wrong.
He penned on Instagram, “Utter nonsense! Are you one percent as prosperous or as wealthy as Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates and Warren Buffet who don’t tithe? I personally find this unscriptural statement manipulative and cruel.
“Christ didn’t collect tithe neither did the 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’s why to us Christians, it’s referred to as the law of sin and death!”
Daddy Freez, who is known for fault Finding, while quoting from Hebrews 7:5 said the law of Moses expected that the clergymen, who’re children of Levi, should collect a tithe from the rest of the individuals of Israel, who’re also offspring of Abraham.
