General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has advised pastors of the church in attendance to warn their parishioners about the danger of ignoring tithing. Adeboye said this as he spoke at the April edition of the monthly Holy Ghost Service at the Redemption Camp, along Lagos/Ibadan Expressway. In his words;
“I want to give every one of you pastors an opportunity to repent tonight.
“And then to go back, immediately after this convention, to restitute your ways with your congregation.
“Make it clear to them…Anyone who is not paying his tithe is not going to heaven, full stop.”
Some Nigerians however took to Twitter to react. Read below;

Oga Pastor, please let me worry about hell fire as I am not ready to give a kobo out of my hard earned recession money to any “man of God” in the name of tithe, particularly people like you who fly in a private jet while i struggle with my small jalopy to work every day.

He is in heaven. Now he is the gateman in heaven.
Liars. I wonder how ppl revere liars in d name of pastors.
First it was cursed
Second no open heaven
Third no blessing
Forth you will be having misfortune
Fifth you won’t go to heaven
Stupid antics to swindle money from ppl

God did not say you won’t make heaven if you don’t pay your tithe. He said he will open the floodgates of heaven to bless you if you do pay your tithe. People should not misquote God’s words. People should spend time in reading their bible. Not my pastor say. Thank you
