Reno Omokri, the former aide to ex president Goodluck Jonathan, has spoken against issue of tithe and ownership of jets by pastors.
Making reference to richest men in the world: Bill gates and Mark Zuckerberg, Omokri said tithe does not guarantee riches as those men don’t pay their tithes but were the richest.
According to him, point of faith is salvation, not prosperity.
He also condemned ownership of jets by pastors, saying Jesus never flew jets but his message was everywhere.
“If paying tithes makes you rich, then @BillGates and Mark Zickerberg would have been poor. Go to Forbes lists of the top 10 richest men-none of them pay tithes. And bedsides, the whole point of faith is salvation, not prosperity.
“While some do, very very few pastor need a private jet to do the work of God. There are commercial flights that can get you there ON TIME. Jesus never flew but His message is everywhere. Your lifestyle preaches more than your message. Live like Jesus. Die to self.
“One of the greatest deception satan has perpetuated in churches is that financial breakthroughs and prosperity is evidence that God is pleased with you. People don’t realize that satan can give wealth if it will deceive you as to your true spiritual state,” he said.
