‘Stop frightening Christians with curses for not paying tithes’ —TREM Bishop tells Nigerian Pastors
For this particular preacher, tithing is not compulsory and should not be forced down people’s throats.
According to the Presiding Bishop of The Redeemed Evangelical Mission (TREM), people should pay their tithes from a place of love, not fear.
In a clip, posted on Twitter by Daddy Freeze, Bishop Okonkwo says, “All those fighting them with curse, I have done that before. I was fighting people because I didn't know any better.”
He goes on to imitate preachers saying, “If you don't pay your tithe, your pocket will be tight.”
“We conjure all kinds of things,” the bishop adds while laughing.
The video ends with him reminding Christians to give cheerfully in order to receive God’s blessings.
Tithing in Nigeria
Bishop Okonkwo is the latest Man of God to join the tithing debate.
The OAP is the convenor of the free the sheeple movement, a campaign he says is all about freeing people from the clutches of the pastors who prey upon them.
