Don’t rob God through the payment of tithe and offering
Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh previously reported that spiritual extortion which also involves failure to pay tithe is a grave sin that could bring about serious consequences for the persons involved and Pastor Enoch Adeboye has reiterated this biblical obligation.
According to Pastor Enoch Adeboye, overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, paying less than one’s tithe is pure deception.
However, the man of God noted that it is a better choice if the person did not pay it at all.
He said that deceiving God has grave consequences and called for the repentance of people who may be guilty about the issue.
