Nigerian Man Rejects Job With Half A Million Pay, Freeze Reacts

A social media user took to her Twitter page to reveal that a Nigerian man rejected a N500,000 paying job with the British American Tobacco company because his belief was not in line with the company’s product, tobacco.

In reaction to this, controversial Nigerian media personality, Daddy Freeze, took to his social media page to lecture his followers about the misconstrued meaning of the bible.

Freeze on his Instagram page shared the tweet which reads: “Imagine a Nigerian Christian who has been jobless for 4 years rejecting a job offer that pays more than 500k from British American Tobacco/Nigerian breweries because smoking/drinking is a sin.”

he further went on to explain:

“Drinking alcohol is NOT a sin! Jesus drank alcohol and produced ‘wine’ which is alcoholic…. let’s remember that Jesus was accused of being a drunkard… you can’t be accused of being a drunkard if you drink grape juice.

The disciples were also accused of acting drunk on ‘new wine’ in Acts2 if wine wasn’t alcoholic, why were the disciples accused of being drunk on it?🙄

Cigarettes on the other hand, although not expressly mentioned in the Bible, can be a source of ‘moral’ concern, especially because of the high number of deaths attributed to them each year.

It is however not the job of your pastor to decide your choice of employment, let the Holy Spirit lead you! ~FRZ
