The Man of God’s Sunday sermon addressed the ongoing tithing controversy.
During his service on Sunday, November 5, 2017, the Redeemed Church of God (RCCG) G.O advised Christians to ignore the OAP’s comments and pay their tithes.
Vanguard reports the Man of God warned believers, particularly his members, to avoid the curse that comes with displeasing God.
In his words, “I know who is talking and I did not want to worry myself about such person. But please do not let anybody get you into trouble by attracting God’s curse to yourself, please pay your tithe.
“I have said it before and I will say it again and again, if your physical father curses you, it can be canceled by your spiritual father, if your spiritual father curse you it can be canceled by the general overseer, if your general overseer curse you, you can fast and pray to your father in heaven but if God curses you, where will you go.”
Reacting to Daddy Freeze’s opinion that ‘it is biblical to use your tithe and buy beer and drink in the house of God‘, Adeboye said, “Avoid divine curse like a plaque.
“Somebody showed me something on the internet on the question of paying tithe or not and the fellow said tithe is supposed to be used to buy alcohol and drink in the church.
“Now you know who is talking, even mad people will not come to church to drink alcohol, no matter how crazy that fellow is, asked him to come to church and drink beer, he will tell you that he is not that crazy, because even in his madness, he knows that it is the house of God and he will refuse to do such thing. But this fellow said otherwise that tithe ought to be used to drink alcohol.”
This sermon was tagged: ‘Breaking Forth.’ It was delivered during a special prayer programme for Fathers, Intending Fathers and their families at the national headquarters of the church, Throne of Grace Parish in Ebute-Meta, Lagos.
Pastor Adeboye joins the list of preachers who have debunked Daddy Freeze’s statements on tithing.
