‘Stop giving your first fruit to your pastors’ — OAP says

The controversial OAP is offering several reasons why this popular doctrine is just pure foolishness.

No, he has moved on the subject of the first fruit. He addressed the matter in a recent Youtube video where he said that this doctrine is not just foolish but sinful too.

According to the OAP, “Collecting the salaries of your congregation in January is Fraud! Stop this unchristian practice that creates slavery and poverty.”

He starts by first getting the Bible’s definition of the first fruit from Exodus 23:19, Leviticus 23: 10, and Proverbs 3:9 -10.

His reasoning is backed by the scriptures, Deuteronomy 26 and Hebrews 7 to be exact.

On Twitter, Daddy Freeze also wrote, “The lies and falsehood of collecting January salary from Christians as first fruit! Stop it, its FRAUD from the pits of hell!”

Ultimately, the OAP is warning Nigerian Christians to stop believing the lie that they need to take their January salary to the church.

Tithing Controversy

This is not the first time the OAP has criticised a major tradition of the church.

In 2017, he got attacked a lot for his constant teachings on the tithing and often shots at popular pastors like Pastor Adeboye.

Clearly, none of these have stopped the leader of the free the sheeple movement.

Other Controversies

Tithing is not the only thing that rubs Daddy Freeze the wrong way. In December, 2017, he criticised the senior pastor of COZA, Biodun Fatoyinbo, for letting Majek Fashek perform in his church.

He shared his opinion via his Instagram account.
