Nigerian actor, Uti Nwachukwu stated that paying tithe is effective for those interested but it is not compulsory.
Uti Nwachukwu condemns the way pastors uses fear of punishment to threaten congregation into practicing it.
In his word, he wrote:
“A lot of people get this whole tithing thing wrong! Does it work? Yes! But It is not compulsory! And you will not be punished for not practicing it!
“It is an elective! A covenant blessing available for those interested.
“What is wrong is using fear of punishment to threaten your congregation into practicing it!
“It’s like the government waking up today to tell us that you’d be arrested if you don’t invest in real estate.
“Same goes for first fruits, offerings and all types of giving.
