Pastor Sam Adeyemi, Senior Pastor and founder of Daystar Christian Center has joined his voice to the tithe controversy which was an online trend last year.
The cleric pointed out that contrary to popular opinion and teaching, there is no curse attached to tithing as the law that backed it has expired at the dawn of the new testament.
While speaking with his congregation on the topic, Pastor Sam as he is fondly called by his followers said Christians should not be put under pressure to pay tithe, affirming that non-payment does not attract any curse.
“Since we are under a new covenant, giving is a choice. Everyone should decide the percentage they want to pay with the knowledge that you will be blessed based on how you give,” he said.
The controversy surrounding tithe was initiated by the popular on-air personality Daddy Freeze when he began a #FreeTheSheeple movement to enlighten his followers on the validity of tithe and giving in the church.
