Reno Omokri, a popular social commentator, has said that the use of tithe money to buy alcohol is not a sin.
He made the statement on Thursday, July 16, backing it up with biblical proofs as he cited Deuteronomy 14:26.
On Friday, July 16, Reno in another tweet responded to those who picked holes in his argument and said that it is an old testament law.
In response, the popular social activist said that why do his critics always use an old testament verse (Malachi 3:10) to support paying tithe.
This was his earlier tweet:
In this tweet, he shot back at his critics:
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that Nigerian preacher, Pastor David Oyedepo, took to his Twitter page to share his take on tithing for the umpteenth time.
The man of God said that paying tithes is an inescapable covenant obligation. He also said that wealth and prosperity are not possible without paying tithes. The preacher added that anyone who does not pay tithes is under a financial curse.
He wrote: “Tithing is an inescapable covenant obligation. Prosperity not just wealth is impossible without tithing, because when you're not paying your tithe, you're under a financial curse.”
The general overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye, also waded into the issue of tithing as he said that paying less than one’s tithe is deception. He noted that it was better that such a person did not pay it at all.
The RCCG overseer shared some bible verses to buttress his point, noting that no one should attempt to deceive God.
Pastor Adeboye then proceeded to share the story of a man who joined the church many years ago under the pretense of a hardworking person.
He said that God told him that the man was a spy and was operating from the church so that he would not be easily discovered. The RCCG pastor said he confronted and told the man that he would be exposed.
