Ghanaian actor John Dumelo has stated that he would rather give his tithe to the poor and needy rather than the church.
According to him, his decision is borne out of the fact that the needy “need it more” than the church does.
Tithing is one of the most controversial topics among Christians in the 21 Century, as many disagree on how it should be given.
In fact, there are even some churches that do not believe in the process of tithing and insist on not paying their tithes.
Dumelo, though, appears to believe in tithing, but says he often gives his to the needy rather than to the church.
In a Twitter post, the star actor said he doesn’t know if his actions are wrong, but believes the needy need such monies more than the church.
“I give my tithe to the needy most of the time. I think they need it more than the ‘church’. I don’t know if it’s wrong,” he wrote.
In May, Dumelo and his wife Gifty Mawunya Nkornu tied the knot at a private location in Accra, in what was a colourful ceremony.
The couple have since welcomed their first baby – a boy – named John Dumelo Jnr.
