“Tithing works but it is not compulsory” – Uti Nwachukwu

Published

on

Reality TV star and media personality, Uti Nwachukwu, has taken to social media to share his opinion on paying tithes in church.

In a series of tweets, Uti noted that setting aside 10% of one’s income and giving it to God in return for blessings, as practiced in the Christian faith, works, but pastors shouldn’t coerce their members into paying it.

According to him, it’s not compulsory and it’s a covenant blessing available for those interested.

“A lot of people get this whole tithing thing wrong! Does it work? Yes! But It is not compulsory! And you will not be punished for not practicing it! It is an elective! A covenant blessing available for those interested.

“What is wrong is using fear of punishment to threaten your congregation into practicing it! It’s like the government waking up today to tell us that you’d be arrested if you don’t invest in real estate. Same goes for first fruits, offerings and all types of giving.

“Let people know the advantages but do not lie to them that they sin if they don’t practice it. Love and faith are all that matter in our chosen religion. Your faith will always produce results. Which is why some people doing the unimaginable still produce results.” He wrote.
