Following the widespread social media campaign launched by Nigerian On-Air Personality, Daddy Freeze, against pastors collecting tithes from their church members, a Nigerian cleric has taken to his social media page to confess that he regrets taking tithes from his church members.
The Nigerian pastor based in Warri, Delta State, Ufuoma Benard, took to his Facebook page to write: “After one month of poring through the Bible and critically examining both sides of the arguments for and against TITHING I publicly repent for receiving tithes. I am convinced Daddy Freeze is right. No more tithing in my ministry.
“I am a pastor but I don’t know everything. I am a work in progress. I learn everyday and from everyone. I am open to new things. I am not stuck in dogma and tradition. I am a liberal person. I hate fanaticism. I am not interested in making money through church business or attracting large crowd or having branches of my church in every street and road. I am only interested in sharing the truth as I know it. The truth I am sure will set the people free from dogma, superstition, manipulation, ignorance and poverty.”
