- A churchgoer frankly declared in a note that was dropped into a church offering box that he/she will not give a kobo
- According to the unidentified churchgoer, he/she only has a Toyota car while the pastor is a jet owner
- The rather funny note has further proven that some people are dissatisfied with the flamboyant lifestyles of most clerics
A funny note was put inside a church offering box by a churchgoer in Nigeria who was dissatisfied with the fact that the pastor has a jet.
According to the churchgoer who refused to drop money into the offering box, the pastor has a jet already while he/she only has a Toyota.
The rather funny note was shared on Facebook and sighted by Legit.ng.
The note read:
"You have a jet already. I only have a Toyota. I no dey give you shishi."
Whoever wrote the note has spoken the minds of some Nigerian churchgoers who believe that it is better to keep their money or gift the less privileged instead of paying offerings and tithes in church.
The flamboyant lifestyle of pastors around the world is the reason for such a mindset.
Reacting to the funny note, a Facebook user identified as Sam Simon wrote:
"That is his personal opinion and no penalty for that."
In a previous report by Legit.ng, Reno Omokri, a popular social commentator, said that the use of tithe money to buy alcohol is not a sin.
The former presidential aide made the statement on Thursday, July 16, 2020, backing it up with biblical proofs as he cited Deuteronomy 14:26.
On Friday, July 17, 2020, 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 wondered why his critics always use an old testament verse (Malachi 3:10) to support paying tithe.
