A Nigerian lady with the Twitter handle @adeerinsola has generated massive reactions on social media after speaking about BBNaija star, Erica's, fans and how they showed her love on her birthday.
In a Twitter post on Sunday, March 14, the lady said that nobody is raising an eyebrow as they people contributed millions for the reality TV star.
She said when Christians were contributing money for their pastors to get them cars, the whole social media was up in strong criticism.
@adeerinsola disclosed that nobody is asking "but what about her followers that don't have money?" question.
See her post below:
Many people have since reacted to her post, with some saying that she got the analogy all wrong.
Legit.ng compiled some of the reactions below:
"Erica didn’t brainwash anyone into parting away hard-earned money as tithes and attaching God’s wrath to those that don’t pay tithes. If you wanna tithe, follow all the laws of the Old Testament anf stop using the ones that favor your pocket!!!"
"This is a really dumb take,Erica was given donation out of love but I can't tell 60% of people giving pastors donation are not doing it out of love most are doing it cause their pastors have made them believe they will miss out on their blessings if they..."
"They see Pastors as regular people who don't deserve any form of appreciation, love and care! Which is all wrong!!!"
"You know there's a problem with Christianity when Pastors are being compared with reality TV stars."
"We have this mentality that religious leaders should be poor and miserable."
