Well, a Kenyan social media user going by the name Dishon Kinyanjui seems to have had enough with his church judging by a letter addressed to it that he shared online recently.

As a churchgoer at the Revival Mission Church, Kabete in Nairobi, Kinyanjui was up to date on matters concerning his offerings and other payments made to the church.

According to Kinyanjui, he had been a member of the church since 1997 and only quit in 2018, having been paying his offerings well until exit.

On Friday, October 30, Kinyanjui decided to open up his heart and say the truth about all the times he was paying his offerings.

Kinyanjui, in an official letter addressed to the church, claimed all contributions he made to the church were not voluntary but from undue influence, duress, and intimidation that if one does not give an offering, he would go to hell.

He wrote:

''I hereby demand reimbursement of all the monies I contributed to the church while I was a member from the year 1997 to 2018. This is approximately KSh 58,000 from my estimated calculations. I confirm that the contributions were not voluntary and blame this on undue influence, duress and intimidation(if you do not give offerings you will go to hell).''

It was at this point that he demanded the church to refund him all the monies he contributed as offering from 1998 to 2017.

The man went ahead to order the church to deposit the refund to his bank account, failure to which he will be forced to implore legal proceedings.

''Kindly deposit the amount in my bank account enclosd with this letter and not later than November 31, 2020. Failure to pay the stipulated amount before teh said date shall prompt legal proceedings."

At first, many people thought the letter was fake but Legit.ng confirmed indeed it is a legit letter from an existing Kenyan who goes by the aforementioned name.

While some people were impressed by his letter shared through Facebook and duly congratulated him, others condemned him.

In his defense in the comments section, he made his stand clear and even supported it with Bible stories.

''I have lived 22 years in fear, intimidation, threats and undue influence. The threat of hell, eternal fire and all the other ridiculous things the church instilled in my mind. Even in the Bible, they made me read all my life clearly showed that when God sends someone he gives them a sign.
"When God sent Moses to Israel he knew there are doubters like Dishon and Pharaoh. God understands and respects doubters. He have Moses about 10 signs. This is basically what am saying, evidence that all the offerings I made were sent to God and a document where God signed and confirmed receipts."

His letter is currently making crazy rounds online with different people airing their varied views about it.
