Media personality, Daddy Freeze has kicked against continuous tithing especially first fruit offering practiced in Nigerian churches on TVC #WakeupNigeria Show. He frowned at building churches all around the Nigeria and Lagos especially Lekki Roundabout having more than 10 churches and yet a lot of people die of hunger and lack of money to feed while, others pay huge tithe to those established churches.
On Friday 29th of December during the interview segment #WakeupNigeria crew, he said, ”I stand for the truth and nothing but the truth. Abraham gave burnt offerings, so why not give burnt offerings instead of money” Daddy Freeze asked.
He continued by saying: ”If Jesus did not collect tithe in his days why should pastors collect tithe too? It doesn’t make sense, it is absolutely ridiculous to have 10 churches in Lekki roundabout alone and watch people die of starvation and sickness.”
OAP Freeze in reaction to the annual offering said, collection of January salary from Christians as first fruit is a ‘Fraud from the pits of hell’ which should be stopped.
According to him, first fruit is the Holy spirit received by Christians when they surrender to God.
On his YouTube channel, he said, “It is about love through Christ not about listening to pharisees if you must obey the law you must obey all of it.
“First fruit mentioned according to new testament in more than one instance is the Holy spirit not your January salary as your pastors are preaching .
“The disciples dint give first fruit but received the holy spirit as the first fruit. “1cor 15:20 Jesus is referred to a the first fruit of the grave. “James 1:18 refers to the fact that christian were the first fruit of all creation. “first fruit has nothing with you giving your salary to fraudster on the pulpit, it has everything to do with those who believe in God.
“The only manual for us is the bible and we walk with it, in Hebrews 7, none of the old law was a requirement again. “Those of you obeying tithing from old commandment are committing sin because you are not obeying other commandments of old testament which is mandatory. “You are committing sin because you have removed yourself from Jesus Christ, you are obeying one commandment and disobeying other 600 plus commandment.
“When you are under Christ, you absolve from all other laws.The moment you obey one law, you must obey the rest. The fulfillment of God’s law is death. Jesus came to fulfill the law not your job.”
