The Senior Pastor of Awaiting The Second Coming Of Christ Ministry, Adewale Giwa has cautioned men of God to be circumspect in the way they interpret the Bible and how they handle their flocks especially on the subject of tithing.

According to him, tithing is not compulsory primarily because it was not mentioned in God’s 10 commandments to biblical Moses.

Giwa described most men of God as “today’s Pharisees” who only proclaim the laws but do not practice Jesus Christ’s teachings while speaking to his members in Akure, the capital of Ondo State, on Sunday.

He said, “God wants us to teach people about loving one another. The greatest teaching is love, not tithing. Some people say you can’t make heaven if you don’t pay your tithes; this is contrary to God’s commandments.

Tithing is good but is not mandatory and there is nowhere you can see it in God’s ten commandments.

Most of us handle the church like a business, and that is why we are acting more like business owners. And when we act like that, our energy gets diluted, our priorities get twisted and unexpected things start happening.

Tithing is a prosperity message that does not win souls for God. Preach salvation, love and mercy.

Sometimes, I feel ashamed when I see or read that some men of God are mandating or forcing their members to pay tithes. 2 Corinthians 9:7 is clear about this. When you continue to preach on tithing, then, that becomes your source of income.”
