Tithing has always been a controversial topic itself but when people like Pretty Mike, the Lagos socialite, and club owner speaks of it, it depicts his status – Scandalous.
He chided people who are poor but find joy in enriching the pockets of their pastors in the name of tithing. According to him, stupidity is when you don’t have a bicycle and you give your last kobo to your pastor to buy a jet.
Recall that Pretty Mike had caused quite a scandal in the past especially when he put dog chains on the neck of two ladies who escorted him to an event. The act landed him in trouble as he was arrested shortly after for violation of human rights.
Ranting his feelings about giving to the church via his Instagram page on Wednesday, August 16, the young man also reprimanded parents who can’t pay their children’s school fees yet have money to give the church to build expensive schools.
Below is what Pretty Mike said:
Stupidity is when you don’t have a bicycle and you give your last kobo to your pastor to buy a jet……. Mumu is when you can’t pay your children’s school fees and yet have money to contribute to your church to build expensive school which your children will never attend….. Ignorance is when you believe it when your pastor tells you not to live a worldly life, and yet he enjoys all the best things in the world, the fine houses, cars, jets, babes etc, while you are waiting till you get to heaven to enjoy your own….. Ewu is when you refuse to take your very sick child to the hospital because your pastor said you should not do so, yet that same pastor secretly runs to USA for medical attention any time he has an headache…. Kolo mental is when you see a poor beggar on the road and you refuse to give him 50 Naira out of the 5000 Naira in your pocket bcos it is your tithe money….. You are a zombie when you trek, dance and gallivant for 30 kilometers under the hot sun sweating and smelling like shit during your revival program, while your pastor is inside a full option, factory fitted air-conditioned state of the art SUV with his delectable wife slowing driving along the road….. Stop worshiping your pastors!!! They are human beings like you, they don’t have no power! If they had the power they claim they have, Nigeria would not be the way it is……..! If you don’t like what I have said argue with ur keyboard. And don’t insult me cause I know most off you are been Brain washed by there pastors …..wise up Nigerians even the white men that brought Christianity to Africa don’t do it that way #PastorPM #husbandmaterial #FatherOfSnakes 🐍 #PythonLover
While some Nigerians applauded Pretty Mike for the write ups, some blasted him for meddling in a topic they felt he’s not morally worthy to address.
One his IG follower, ademujimibusola lauded him saying;
“It’s a lovely write up, some people have gotten so deep in the mumuism, they’ll be like Daddy said this, Daddy said that. Does Daddy have a platinum pass to GOD? went to a church where they use POS in collecting tithes and offering, so I didn’t bring money today ain’t gonna work, just bring your card and press your pin, that’s how far people have taken religion.”
Another user, sophiarose5058 commented quote;
“So the fact that people sow seed, tithe, give offerings and some other things means they worship their pastor? If you must know doing those things (sowing, tithing, offering etc) is an act of worship to God, not their pastors.”
And so the argument continues…!
