Pastor Otabil has stated that it is only "hypocrites" who would act as though money was "nothing" to them.
In a sermon on Sunday, August 21, Dr. Mensah Otabil told his congregation, "When I hear rich people say: 'What is money?' money is nothing', I say: 'You have it and so you say it's nothing, throw it away'. And when I hear poor people say: 'What is money?' I say: 'Look at what you are saying. You don't have it and yet you say: 'What is it?' How can you know what it is when you don't even have it? Any rich person who says 'money is not important' is not truthful because if they were truly truthful, they'll throw it all away. So the next time you meet a rich person who says: 'What is money?' say: 'Give it to me'. … Money is good…Oh it is good! I'm telling you …Poverty is a devil because poverty can make you do things you don’t what to do."
According the renowned pastor, any rich person who claims that money is "nothing" might as well "throw away" all his/her riches just to prove their point.
Pastor Otabil continued: "Don't listen to any rich man who tells you, 'Oh money is nothing'. Anytime a rich person says 'money is nothing' tell him: 'Give yours to me' because if it's nothing 'give it to me'".
The head of the International Central Gospel Church, also admonished his followers to embrace, wholeheartedly, the "blessings of God". The minister believes that all Christians must enjoy God's blessings rather than "apologise" when people around them are not as "blessed as they are".
