Prophet TB Joshua recently stated that "people like him" are hesitant when it comes to collecting offerings in church, this according to sermon he delivered on Sunday, April 9th, 2017.

Although the take up of offerings is a usual affair in almost all other churches, Pastor TB Joshua expressed that what some church members bring as an offerings or thanksgiving wasn't helping the churches but rather killing them.

Pastor TB Joshua advised other pastors saying that if they wanted to avoid this sort of booby trap offerings, they should stop praising such church members, since it's the praise that such members were looking for.

“What comes from God goes to God. If what you have is from God, it will go to God – you don’t need to have any recognition from the pastor. Whatever you want to give God, you give it,” he surmised," he said.
