Head of Daystar Christian Centre, Pastor Sam Adeyemi has finally shared his opinion on the controversial tithing issue that has been gone viral in the country, becoming a topic of discussion on social media.
Speaking in an interview the President of Success Power International, an NGO organization which specializes in organizing financial, leadership and motivational seminars said:
“…The main thing with tithe is that there is a principle. The 10 percent principle predated the laws of Moses; it is a very powerful principle. As to where to pay your tithe, the major thing it was used for before in the Old Testament, though there are other small things, was the running of the temple and maintenance of the priests.
“However, things have now changed. We have churches that have been registered and incorporated with the government, so they need to be run and maintained. So, the average person that is getting value from the church needs to support its existence. It is the fair deal so to speak.
“God’s ordained church needs to take care of the people there. In the New Testament, especially in Acts chapter 2, we saw the apostles making sure that nobody goes to bed hungry, that is the rule we have in our church. So, nobody in this church, no matter their class or where they come from must go to bed hungry. It’s money and resources that we use to do that,” Pastor Sam Adeyemi concluded.
