Many who are Christians believe in giving 10 percent of their income while others are of the opinion that tithing is not required for believers, but only a tool to enrich Pastors who use the medium to defraud worshipers.
In that regard, a twitter user has stated that most Nigerian Christians don’t know they are meant to eat and merry with their tithes, adding that you are only required to give to pastors who have no inheritance or property.
According to the Ijaw philosopher (@Tweetestboi_ph), Christians fail to see this part of the bible because they only open their Bible when they are instructed to do so by their pastors.
He went further to quote a bible passage to support his claims, urging Nigerian Christians to read up Deuteronomy 14:22-29.
His tweet reads;
“Most Nigerian Christians don’t know they are meant to eat and merry with their tithes and only give to pastors who have no inheritance or property. This is what you get when you only open your Bible when your pastor tells you to. Read deut 14:22-29.”
One Mr.Jones (@gucchijones) in his response supported the Ijaw philosopher, saying that Christians have no idea tithes is meant to be mostly agricultural produce and animals.
“They have no idea and they don’t know tithes is meant to be mostly agricultural produce and animals,10% of it realized after harvest is given to the high priest and given only if you can.They don’t also know it originated from the Levites.”
Precious Hart, a photographer who disagreed with their point of view also responded saying that it is mandatory as a Christian to give tithes to God and not pastors.
“Baba you don’t give tithes to your Pastor, you PAY tithe to God! It is mandatory as a Christian.”
