Ifedayo Olarinde, better known as Daddy Freeze, has announced that his ministry is going to start accepting donations from members.

Earlier this year, the OAP turned religious activist unveiled the official name and logo for his  ministry - 'Free Nation In Christ Online Church.'

Today, he revealed why his church will be receiving donations from willing members in an Instagram post followed by a Youtube video.

In the clip, he explains that he came to this conclusion after a poll from people who showed their willingness to give to the ministry.

He quickly adds that giving does not necessarily translate to blessings saying, "there is no blessing if you give me a gift. I will appreciate it, it is a gift of love but there is no blessing."

Freeze backs his decision to receive donations with Phil 4:10 which says, "How I praise the Lord that you are concerned about me again. I know you have always been concerned for me, but you didn't have the chance to help me."

He moves on to verses 15–18: "As you know, you Philippians were the only ones who gave me financial help when I first brought you the Good News and then traveled on from Macedonia. No other church did this.  Even when I was in Thessalonica you sent help more than once.

"I don't say this because I want a gift from you. Rather, I want you to receive a reward for your kindness. At the moment I have all I need - and more! I am generously supplied with the gifts you sent me with Epaphroditus. They are a sweet-smelling sacrifice that is acceptable and pleasing to God."

As the video goes on, he further explains that the donations would be used for tours and whatever the church wants to do.

Watch the rest of the video above to see why the FreeNation In Christ has decided to receive donations.

On March 11, 2018, he revealed the official logo for his online church named 'Free Nation In Christ Online Church aka Free The Sheeple movement.'

As the name implies, his services and everything pertaining to the ministry is done on social media platforms like YouTube, Instagram, and Facebook.

Despite the term-church, Freeze has maintained on several occasions that there will be no physical church. In an exclusive interview with he explains: "We gather online, on Youtube, Instagram, Facebook, on the radio. That gathering is a church. But you see the traditional idea of a church as a building is what we are here to do away with."

As you would expect from someone who has made a name for himself with his anti-tithing protest, the convenor insists that his church WILL NOT accept 10% from anyone.

In his words, "We absolutely do not collect TITHES, FIRST FRUIT, OFFERING AND WE NEVER SOW SEEDS!"

On August 17, 2018, he shared the first official pictures of his ministry's T-shirt on Instagram.

Freeze has certainly come a long way from when he started his anti-tithing protest in 2016.
