Nigerian comedian, Basketmouth has reacted to Bishop David Oyedepo’s statement on tithing being a prerequisite for becoming prosperous.

The claim was made in a tweet via Oyedepo ministry’s Twitter handle on Thursday.

In Christian doctrine, a tithe is one-tenth of a member’s earnings paid to the church.

“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,” the tweet read.

Reacting to this, Basketmouth stated that the church is now threatening people with financial curse over tithe in a bad economy.

The Govt will threaten us with prosecution if we don’t pay our TAX & VAT.

The CHURCH will now threaten us with a FINANCIAL CURSE if you don’t pay your TITHE!

Inside the TERRIBLE ECONOMY?

ABEGIIIIIIIIIIIII!!!!!!!!!”

This comes after Daddy Freeze also reacted to Oyedepo’s statement. He maintained that neither Jesus nor his disciples collected tithe from anyone, making payment of tithe not a duty in Christianity.

Daddy Freeze wrote: ” Utter nonsense! Are you one percent as prosperous or as wealthy as Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates and Warren Buffet who dont tithe? I personally find this unscriptural statement manipulative and cruel. Christ didnt collect tithe neither did the disciples, yet no one was cursed! ~FRZ”
