THE NEWSGHOST, NIGERIA – Zack Orji, a veteran Nollywood actor, in a chat with journalists aired his opinion on tithing, an issue which has generated so much controversy on social media in recent days, report says.
OAP Freeze has been a leading voice in the controversy that has led to reactions from pastors.
Orji said tithing is a personal thing between tithers and their God. He said it is a terrible thing to condemn the men of God. He described those condemning tithing as ignorant.
The actor said he has been ordained as a pastor for five years and is careful about making certain statements.
He told journalists that:
‘I am a pastor, ordained for five years now. The issue of tithing is a personal thing.
I get very careful about making certain statements I have watched some people condemn tithing, say a lot of things about men of God and I pity some of those people because they are speaking out of ignorance.
It is a terrible thing to go on the social media and be condemning men of God and be condemning something that is in the bible.’
