Winner of Big Brother Africa season 5, actor and model, Uti Nwachukwu is asking an interesting question about tithing on his social media pages.

He wants to know if first fruits and tithes paid to church can be given to parents instead. He wrote

“ALSO OUR TITHEs…..what if we gave them to our PARENTS ALSO…….I really want to rub minds with deep thinking mature Individuals. Cos this has been on my mind. Lets have those who are for it give Valid reasons and those who are not for it also give vakid reasons …WITHOUT CONDEMNATION/INSULTS /JUDGEMENTAL WORDS…Thanks guys. ..👇🏾👇🏾👇🏾👇🏾”

Since controversial Cool FM OAP, Daddy Freeze started teaching his followers about tithing and slamming some pastors for enriching themselves with it, lots of people have paid attention to it.

Recall that in December, Daddy Freeze allegedly made a Nigerian pastor stop collecting tithes.

According to the Pastor, Ufuoma Benard, he has stopped collecting the usual 10 percent.

He made a public announcement where he made it known that his decision is because of his knowledge of Bible and Daddy Freeze.

In his words,

“After one month of poring through the Bible and critically examining both sides of the arguments for and against TITHING I publicly repent for receiving tithes. I am convinced Daddy Freeze is right. No more tithing in my ministry.”

Daddy Freeze in December last year, also blasted Apostle Suleman.

Freeze was reacting to Suleman’s declaration that he has increased his tithe from 10% to 30%.

The OAP said he was now referred to as a Satan for holding his ground on the issue of tithing by pastors, while maintaining that 30% tithe payment had no basis in Christianity.

He wrote on Instagram,

“Satan should go and die is now the new biblical defense for tithing?

“The association of Nigerian Theologians, according to ‘The Point’ newspaper, published on the 20th of November 2017, declared that Christians should not pay tithe.

“I will say that paying 30% tithe has NO basis in Christianity, but you can prove me wrong, by showing me one bible verse where our new High priest under the order of Melchizedek, Jesus, paid tithe, or where the disciples, our first pastors and GOs, paid 30% tithes.

“Now, unto other unrelated matters, that’s how one guy said one gov will die in 2 weeks and the gov is still hale and hearty, nearly 2 years later!”

  2. The scripture says bring your one tenth to the store house so there will be enough food in the house of God, go and read your bible. If your parents are pastors and your home is a church you can keep it there, don’t come here and ask us nonsense questions again.

  3. U no get work,your coligs are busy assisting the less privilege and and low peoples all around nig,you are busy asking foolish questions all about,you better go home and replan and come out with good ideas that can assist nig from present situations and stop asking foolish questions on media.

  6. The scriptures says bring ye all the tithe to my store house.

  7. as child you have an obligation to look after your parents irrespective of the fact whether you pay tithes or not. tithes belong to God and except you dad is ur pastor u re just giving not tithe.

  8. Hosea 4King James Version (KJV)

    4 Hear the word of the Lord, ye children of Israel: for the Lord hath a controversy with the inhabitants of the land, because there is no truth, nor mercy, nor knowledge of God in the land.

    2 By swearing, and lying, and killing, and stealing, and committing adultery, they break out, and blood toucheth blood.

    3 Therefore shall the land mourn, and every one that dwelleth therein shall languish, with the beasts of the field, and with the fowls of heaven; yea, the fishes of the sea also shall be taken away.

    4 Yet let no man strive, nor reprove another: for thy people are as they that strive with the priest.

    5 Therefore shalt thou fall in the day, and the prophet also shall fall with thee in the night, and I will destroy thy mother.

    6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.

    7 As they were increased, so they sinned against me: therefore will I change their glory into shame.

    8 They eat up the sin of my people, and they set their heart on their iniquity.

    9 And there shall be, like people, like priest: and I will punish them for their ways, and reward them their doings.

    10 For they shall eat, and not have enough: they shall commit whoredom, and shall not increase: because they have left off to take heed to the Lord.

  9. You people are talking anyhow cos it is God, can u ask ur village gods (oracles ) this kind of questions. Give to whoever u want to give to on d last day..we ll know.

  10. That of parents is different, because parental blessing is different from God’s own blessing, ur parents will train u, send u to school but if the favour n blessings of God is on you is useless

  11. Tithe is given in church not to your parents but there is parental blessing when you give to your parents and the Bible ask us to do so.Besides they took care of you why not do the same for them.
