As the argument on tithing rages on, Pastor Matthew Ashimolowo of the Kingsway International Christian Centre in London, has engaged in an exchange of words with high-profile anti-tithe On Air Personality (OAP), Daddy Freeze.
Ashimolowo has joined other pastors to react to OAP Daddy Freeze tithe teachings.
Pastor Matthew called out Freeze for living a ‘sinful’ lifestyle and trying to preach to people on what to do.
According to him, Freeze should shut up!
“Once and for all let’s settle this matter, on the power of the tithe. Some bunch of yoyo somewhere should not determine what you pay. Some guy who beats his wife, throws her out, throws his children out of the house, broke his son’s knees, should not determine what we believe. He drinks alcohol, sleeps with women and he’s trying to preach”
Daddy Freeze replied;
“Haaaaaa! Has it come to this?
See the way he is defending tithing with so much passion, I hope this same passion is extended to bringing home our brothers who are currently enslaved in Libya.
I didn’t hear ONE single bible verse, just sentiments and emotions in this defense.
Who is this ‘Yoyo’ now? Mention his name make we know am. and I hope there is proof to back these allegations up and they are not just ‘hear say’ from an false interview conducted on an embattled pot of stale bitterleaf soup.
Whoever the ‘yoyo’ is, one thing is certain, he cannot determine what the body of Christ believes, only the BIBLE can do that, so until you can come out with a superior argument to explain where Jesus our high priest, or the disciples our first pastors collected tithes, it looks like the ‘yoyo’ is the one speaking the biblical truth and no amount of subbing or name calling can override the scriptures.
If the ‘yoyo’ drinks alcohol, lets remember Jesus drank alcohol too.. he was called a drunkard by the Pharisees.. the teachers of religious law who burdened the people with unbearable religious yokes and put up similar fights when Jesus drove the money changers out of the temple!
A man can’t be seen drinking pap, Fanta or lucozade and be called a drunkard, can he? ~FRZ
