A Nigerian pastor has admonished Christians to increase the percentage of their tithes and stop dwelling on the Biblical 10% prescribed by the Bible.
According to the pastor who goes by the name Gospel Agochukwu, prices of goods and services have skyrocketed hence the meagre 10% tithe is not enough for God- as it were.
He said Christians have to find different strategies in increasing their ‘Kingdom investments.’
He posted in a series; “Economy is bad, everything has gone up. Stop giving God 10%. I give 70% you can take your decisions pls. But just increase in your kingdom investments, things are on the high side.”
Interestingly, UK-based Ghanaian gospel artist Joseph Matthew recently said there’s no special blessing that comes with paying tithes as opposed to the twisted doctrines of modern-day pastors.
Transmitting his controversial statement on Hitz FM, the singer emphasized that Christians are obligated to pay their tithes to God but not every month as mandated by the men of God of the latter days.
He argued that God never gave instructions to Christians to pay their tithes monthly but specified that people must be able to do good unto their neighbours and friends to attract his blessings and not through tithes.
He further explained that tithes began started with Abraham who under was under compulsion to give 10% of his income to God as a sacrifice but the deed was never instructed by God.
Matthew said to attract God’s blessing does not hinge on paying tithe but by doing good to one’s neighbour. Watch the video below for more information;
