Pastors Collecting Tithes Amid Coronavirus Are Scammers
Some pastors are running lucrative businesses under the guise of running a church. They come up with all manners of lies about God telling churchgoers to fund certain projects. Meanwhile, it’s the Devil they are hearing from and they carry out their insatiable lust for riches by telling miracle seeking congregants, to fund such ‘projects’. With the coronavirus pandemic limiting movement, some of these vulture-like pastors have told their members to pay their tithes online since there’s a ban on public gatherings due to the COVID-19 outbreak. While reacting to this, Shatta Wale in an interview on 4 Syte TV, boldly stated that these pastors are only interested in money and not the salvation and welfare of their members.
On how these pastors have collected huge amounts of money in form of offerings for over 30 years, Shatta Wale questioned how the money was used to better the lives of church members. He said:
“We are in a period where I don’t think pastors should even try that…you understand me? Your members come to church and they give collection, now there is a problem. The collections they gave like for the past 30 years, where are those collections?
“okay like you can say your collections for the past 30 years, where can I buy some rice or yam or things for you. but as at now that Coronavirus is killing your church members, some of your church members don’t even have cars, some don’t have houses…they rent and you’re still collecting tithes online?
“These are scammers like hard sakawa guys and that’s why some people like Kennedy Agyapong will get pissed and start bombarding them. As a man of God, don’t you have pity?”
