- Apostle Professor Opoku Onyinah says paying tithe is biblical and a christian duty
- According to the immediate past Chairman of the Church of Pentecost, tithes are a source of funding to ensure the sustenance of churches
The immediate past Chairman of the Church of Pentecost, Apostle Professor Opoku Onyinah, has set the records straight regarding the payment of tithes by Christians.
According to him, every Christian owes it a duty to pay his or her tithe in order to help the church grow.
The preacher said just like any other institution, the church also needs money to function and to sustain their activities.
Apostle Onyinah noted that the paying of tithes is biblical, explaining that the old testament is clear on how Christians should give money to support the activities of the Church.
“Every institution cannot thrive without money, wherever you are, you need money to thrive. If don’t get money, you cannot function. So Churches can function well if they get money,” he said on Citi TV.
“The Bible gives a basic way of giving money in the old testament and that is tithing. When the Lord Jesus Christ came, he spoke about tithing and he did not condemn tithing. I will still encourage Christians to do that.”
He added that claims depicting the payment of tithes as outmoded are wrong and should not be backed.
The preacher urged Christians to continue to support their respective churches by paying their tithes.
Apostle Onyinah officially bowed out as Chairman of the the Church of Pentecost, having headed the church for the past 10 years.
He has, however, been ministering the word of God for the past 42 years, in a life that has seen him stationed in the various parts of the country.
Reflecting on his service so far, he said: “I am very satisfied with where the Lord has brought me and the Church of Pentecost. When I began my Ministry 42 years ago at Wa. I had a divine encounter where God asked me to specifically preach Christ. I think I have been very faithful to my call from my point of view and so I am satisfied that I have done what God wanted me to do.”
