Olubunmi Aro wrote:

"I respect Pastor Adeboye so much. I think he should get over this tithe message bcos we misinterpreted it. Moses brought These laws, but Christ has replaced them with Grace. We are not under the law anymore but under Grace.
"Like Bishop Mike Okonkwo of TREM, he has embraced the gospel of grace (preached after Christ's resurrection). He apologized for misleading his congregation on tithe, and now they've stopped collecting tithe, stopped preaching the gospel of Moses, and now focused on the Gospel of Grace."

Wilfred E. Orhue commented:

"I don’t think this message can be delivered to a white congregation. The sermon is best suited for Nigerian audience."

Gideon George said:

"The business of attracting 10% of everyone’s monthly income is real, and it should be approached with persuasive strategies."

Eniola Daniel reacted:

"It is well. My church in the village, Anglican, give financial reports, and everyone knows the state of finance of the church. So, why shy away from this?"
