Popular Broadcaster, Ifedayo Olarinde aka Daddy Freeze, on Friday, described Bishop Oyedepo’s comment on tithing as “utter nonsense.”
The founder of Living Faith Church Worldwide aka Winners’ Chapel International said tithing is an obligation and those who don’t pay it are under a financial curse.
However, Daddy Freeze, the leader of an online ministry called Free The Sheeple, said that Oyedepo’s message was wrong.
He wrote 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.
Nigerian comedian known as Basketmouth also aired his opinion on the matter.
He stated that the church is now threatening people with a financial curse over tithe in a bad economy.
THIS LIFE NO BALANCE AT ALL!!
The Govt will threaten us with prosecution if we don’t pay our TAX & VAT.
The CHURCH will now threaten us with a FINANCIAL CURSE if you don’t pay your TITHE!
Inside the TERRIBLE ECONOMY?
With the LEVEL OF UNEMPLOYMENT?
@iamcedar tweeted, “There are two laws governing kingdom prosperity- spiritual (tithing and giving) and natural (Investing, competences, value). Both complement each other and can’t stand alone if you indeed want kingdom prosperity. I’m not a ‘Winner’ but I agree prosperity is impossible without tithing.”
