David Oyedepo took to Twitter to state that anyone who doesn’t pay tithe is “under a financial curse” and can never prosper and this has led to an argument.
The founder of Winners’ Chapel International tweeted: “Tithing is an inescapable covenant obligation. Prosperity not just wealth is impossible without tithing, because when you’re not paying your tithe, you’re under a financial curse. #Tithe #Breakinglimits.”
A PhD candidate at Edinburgh University disagreed with Oyedepo, writing: “Tithing cannot create wealth! Wealth creation occurs when you deploy capital to create value. When X gives 1/10 of his earnings to your church, there’s no production or investment, thus he has not created value, but only enriched you. Tithing is a church sponsored ponzi scheme..”
Twitter users have now taken sides, some with Oyedepo and others with the PhD candidate.
