Pastor David Ibiyeomie of Salvation Ministries has explained why he can’t pay 10 percent as tithe.
Ibiyeomie, who is the founder of Salvation Ministries, said God would flog him if he pays 10 percent as tithe.
He spoke while addressing his members on Sunday in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.
The cleric described the refusal to pay tithe as a form of greed.
According to Ibiyeomie, those who don’t tithe find life very tight for them.
Ibiyeomie said: “In fact, these days, I don’t even pay ten, my P.A. is there. I pay far beyond ten, for every money I get.
“That is what you are struggling to pay as tithe, me I pay more than ten percent as offering.
“My tithe is not fifteen percent, I won’t tell you the percentage, I’m on another level. I won’t tell you what I pay as tithe. If I pay ten percent, God will flog me.
“Me, pay tithe of ten percent for what? You pay ten percent, that’s the recommended one, but me, I’m at another level.”
