The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor E.A Adeboye at the opening of his church’s Holyghost Congress at the church’s campground yesterday, December 4th said in quote;
“If you buy a car with a money you didn’t earn lawfully you’ll be riding in a moving coffin.”
This was also posted via the Official Twitter handle of the Cleric. The post has received some reactions on social media.
It can be recalled that in a previous reaction to the tithing controversy, Adeboye warned Christians against the dangers of non- compliance to paying of tithe.
However, the cleric, on Sunday, 3rd December, 2017 edition of his Daily Devotional, titled: “Open Heavens”, said the command to pay tithes on one’s earnings simply places a demand on the Christian to trust God.
Writing on the topic, ‘Tithing Is Trusting’, Adeboye said:
“To experience exploits in your life, you must have a personal relationship with God. You must believe that He lives and love Him with all your heart. You must also learn to trust in Him.
“The command to pay tithes on your earnings simply places a demand on you to trust God. Your response to this command shows the level of trust you have in Him.
“If you can pay your tithes correctly, it shows that you trust God for your livelihood, but if you find it difficult to be faithful in doing this, it simply shows that you trust more in your earning than in God to sustain you.
