Prophet Samuel Abiara, the former General Evangelist of the Christ Apostolic Church has weighed in on the issues of tithing and how it’s being spent by clerics.
In a recent interview with newsmen, he said people don’t need to know what happens to the tithe they pay in church.
In his words:
“You don’t need to know what happens to the tithe you pay. Leave it to the servants of God who will use it for evangelism. It is not for you to investigate how the money is utilized”
“However, it is compulsory for the servants of God to give an account of the tithe and other offerings paid by church members to avoid corruption. Proper accountability of incomes accruable to the church will enable the authorities to pay the salaries of pastors and other workers as and when due, he added.
