"We conjure all kinds of semantics to get” tithe – pastor

More and more respected Christian leaders are questioning the payment of tithes by Christians. The latest to join the fray is the Presiding Bishop of The Redeemed Evangelical Mission (TREM), Bishop Mike Okonkwo who has actually admitted having intimidated congregants to pay tithes because he was ignorant of the truth.

Some notable men of God have been campaigning against payment of tithe mandatorily as has been the doctrine Christians have been made to comply with since time immemorial.

In a viral video, Bishop Mike Okonkwo urged his colleague men of God to stop exploiting their congregants.

He said: “Get your eyes away from people. Why do you want to give them implication (for not paying tithe). Leave them alone.”

“The first mention of tithe, there was no curse in it. Abraham gave the tithe of all to Melchizedek which was before the law. There was no curse and he did it willingly.

“I have frightened the church with curses for not paying tithes and that was because I didn’t know any better.

“You know we conjure all kinds of semantics like, ‘If you don’t pay your tithe, your life will be tight,’ and the people pay out of fear without God’s blessing.

“God wants you to pay tithe out of love, it shouldn’t be about the money, but about Jesus.

"We conjure all kinds of semantics in order to get them."

In a separate video, Bishop Mike Okonkwo said even before the judgment day, his conscience does not give him peace when congregants are struggling to pay tithes while they hardly make ends meet.

He said: “Can you imagine all the businessmen, all the profit you made and you bring them at my feet. Even if I did not read it in the bible, my conscience will not allow me.

“It is not all the gifts you take, take only the one you will be able to go to bed.”
