Christians have been urged by American televangelist Kenneth Copeland not to stop paying tithes and sowing offerings even if they lose their jobs due to the coronavirus pandemic facing the world.
In a video circulating on social media, the televangelist said Jesus is people's source, and not their jobs.
He said: “Fear of this coronavirus is faith in its ability to hurt you or kill you. The fear of what are we gonna do? I’m getting laid off at work!
“Hey! Your job’s not your source. If it is, you’re in trouble. Jesus is your source! Whatever you do right now, don’t you stop tithing! Don’t you stop sowing offerings.

“Well, email it in, then! Text together. Something. But you get your tithe in that church if you have to go take it down there and drop it off… stick it under the door or something. You get that tithe in that church, you get that offering in that church, and then you go home and do what you’re supposed to do.”
