The founder of Living Faith Church Worldwide, AKA Winners Chapel International, Bishop David Oyedepo, says people who refused to pay tenth of their earnings are under a financial curse.
Clergy man said this on  his official Twitter account on Thursday.
Oyedepo tweeted, “Tithing is an inescapable covenant obligation. Prosperity, not just wealth, is impossible without tithing because when you are not paying tithe, you’re under a financial curse.”
In the same vein on Friday, Bishop stated that, many problems men encounter could be as a results to their financial dealings.
He added, “The way you handle your financial dealings determines greatly what happens to you financially. Many things that afflict men are traceable to their monetary dealings. False financial dealings can open doors to inexplicable afflictions."
The moment Bishop Oyedepo’s passed the message to his followers, some castigator on social media described his message as old law and erroneous.
One of the critics is Ifedayo Olarinde, Popular Broadcaster, aka Daddy Freeze, who posted on social media that Oyedepo’s message was improper.
He said on Instagram, “Utter nonsense! Are you one per cent as prosperous or as wealthy as Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates and Warren Buffet who don’t tithe? I personally find this unscriptural statement manipulative and cruel.
“Christ didn’t collect tithe neither did the disciples, yet no one was cursed! Tithing is the old law, obeying the old law partially, without obeying all the 613 laws of Moses is what carries a curse. That’s why to us Christians, it’s referred to as the law of sin and death!”
The castigator, quote from Hebrews 7:5 which says the law of Moses required that the priests, who are descendants of Levi, must collect a tithe from the rest of the people of Israel, who are also descendants of Abraham.
A tweep, @kingmichaelthe2, tweeted, “But Jesus Christ, our Lord, the owner of the church, never threatened nor forced anyone to tithe… he who comes to me shall by no means be cast away. How will he now curse those who believe in him because of 10 per cent of their salaries? God is a merciful and loving God. God is love.”
Isaac Obasi, one of the renounce Journalist and writer, who also added his own opinion said tithing was based on the Judaic laws and not Christianity.
Tweeting with his handle, @Obasifoundation, he wrote, “Whom did God command to pay tithes and to whom? God told all the nations of Israel to pay tithes from the land he gave… the new covenant is superior and better than the old covenant with better promises. The Bible says if the old covenant was perfect enough there wouldn’t have been a need for the New Covenant.
