A man has anonymously taken to Facebook to share an incident he encountered with his church.
The unknown man shared his displeasure via a page called Manokekame, calling out his church leadership after they asked him to make full payment for all outstanding tithes before his marriage would be officiated by the church.
He narrated that after having his traditional wedding, he met with his church officials to discuss arrangements for his white wedding.
According to what the post stated, the church confirmed from him if he is a committed tithe payer to which he answered, no.
This was followed by the church official stating sternly that he is not a church member.
Still narrating, he added that they weren't to see his lady's pastor and they were asked to run a series of lab tests.
He further said they were asked to fill a marriage questionnaire which according to him, he found some of the questions preposterous.

It is never written anywhere that you should do you marriage ceremony in the church or to do white wedding... Forget about all these pastors. Just gather some of family members from bothe sides, and some of you friends, that's all your done marrying.
Eva Nana-Yaa Tetteh said;
I have been a member of Assemblies of God church since childhood. This is new to me. I suggest you do court wedding. Some of these pastors are just greedy.
From Laga Aba;
Get the Church that will understand marriage not money conscious pastors.

YEN.com.gh also reported that Dr Kweku Oteng, the chairman of Angel Group Ltd and the owner of Adonko Bitters has indicated it was tithing consistently that brought him the great wealth he now enjoys.
In the snippet of a live radio interview that is now making waves on social media, the renowned Ghanaian businessman mentioned that back in the day, he was unable to earn more than one million cedis (now GHc 100).
According to Dr Oteng, whenever his money got close to the figure, misfortune would befall him, causing him to spend the money and reducing his income to ground zero.
