In recent times, there has been a huge debate about whether Christians should pay tithes or not. A popular OAP Daddy Freeze has been challenging the Pentecostal Churches and others on the use and accountability of the tithes receive from their church and what the scripture says concerning the tithe.
Freeze regularly takes to his social media pages to give biblical evidences about why Christians are not under any obligation to pay tithes as many pastors preach. His teachings have elicited so many responses from different men of God with some even going ahead to attack his personal life.
However, that’s about to change as Pastor D.K Olukoya of MFM Church has shared his thoughts on the matter – He said paying tithes is not compulsory. And Freeze has reportedly been singing the praises of the revered man of God even as he’s jubilating around.
Dr D.K Olukoya, general overseer of the Mountain of Fire Ministries (MFM) appears to agree with some of Freeze’s teachings as he reportedly said paying tithes is not compulsory.
Speaking during yesterday’s (Sunday, December 3, 2017) service at the international headquarters of the church, Pastor Olukoya reportedly explained that payment of tithes is purely a personal relationship between the giver and God. “There is nowhere in the Bible where it is written that tithing and giving offering is compulsory. But if you want to trust God with your finances you should even strive to do more than the tithe,” he said.
The man of God further added that real Christians see everything they own as God’s and those with faith have gone beyond giving 10%. By doing so, God may bless you even more and this way you are sowing seed for future prosperity.
Recall that Trait News reports last week that a Lagos based advertising guru-turned pastor, Lolu Akinwunmi also backed part of Freeze’s submissions on tithing. Freeze has been at loggerheads with leading Nigerian pastors like Pastor E.A Adeboye, Matthew Ashimolowo and Paul Adefarasin amongst others since the tithing saga started some weeks ago.
