Daddy Freeze, an On-Air-Personality, has faulted the statement by Bishop David Oyedepo, the General Overseer of Living Faith Church Worldwide, also known as Winners Chapel, that “prosperity is impossible without tithing.”
Naija News had reported earlier that the Winners Chapel General Overseer said on Thursday day tithing is an inescapable covenant obligation hence prosperity not just wealth is impossible without tithing.
This online news platform understands that Bishop Oyedepo said those who are not paying tithe are under a “financial curse” because “tithing is an inescapable covenant obligation.”
“Tithing is an inescapable covenant obligation. Prosperity not just wealth is impossible without tithing because when you’re not paying your tithe, you’re under a financial curse,” Bishop Oyedepo wrote on the micro-blogging site.

Displeased with the statement, Nigerians took to the micro-blogging site, Twitter, to attack Bishop Oyedepo. Like Nigerians, Daddy Freeze who has been against tithing recorded a video of himself questioning the teachings the Living Faith General-Overseer.
In the video seen by this reporter, Daddy Freeze said: “Tithing is an inescapable covenant obligation for who? There’sno scriptural reference for any Christian tithing.
“He now said prosperity not just wealth is impossible without tithing, how can you say that? prosperity is impossible without tithing?”

“Lets type this, Jeff Bezos network as of today, he is worth $178.5 billion. Jeff Bezos is worth all the churches put together in Nigeria, put it to you guys while Bill Gates is worth $112 billion.
“These people don’t tithe, they are not even Christians, they don’t go to church, so how can you say this? I am going to be as respectful as possible but this is unfair and I personally find this teaching manipulative,” a furious Daddy Freeze said.
