Daddy Freeze challenges RCCG's Enoch Adeboye to a public debate on the practise of tithing

CONTROVERSIAL Popular Cool FM disc jockey Daddy Freeze has challenged the general overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) Pastor Enoch Adeboye to a public debate on the controversial issue of tithing.


Radio show host and presenter Ifedayo Olarinde popularly known as Daddy Freeze, has been campaigning against the exploitative tendencies of Nigeria's wealthy pastorprueners who fleece off their members, demanding 10% of their earnings. His campaign against these tithes has put him on a collision course with these wealthy clergymen who are not only well connected politically but also have very deep pockets.


These wealthy pentecostal churches compel their members to pay 10% of their earnings in offerings and their pastors then use this to fund lavish lifestyles, which include buying private jets and strings of flashy cars. RCCG is the largest of Nigeria's evangelical churches and Daddy Freeze has challenged its leader to come forward to debate the issues.


Yesterday, Daddy Freeze  took to his Instagram page to share a banner of RCCG encouraging members to always pay their tithes instead of being robbers, who deny the church its entitlements and dues.   Reacting to the RCCG banner, Daddy Freeze challenged Pastor Adeboye to a debate to teach him the scriptures and real truth of Christ.


Daddy Freeze wrote: “And they say pastors don’t hold guns to member’s head, please can someone explain what is RCCG doing in this picture? Tithe is a false doctrine for Christianity, I have proven this scripturally several times as Christ never collected tithes, neither did his disciples.


“I have challenged their general overseer Enoch, to a debate on several times to no avail. If he doesn’t want a debate, we can sit over a beer and discuss these scriptures and I can offer to teach him the real truth about Christ for free.


“He has made it obvious that paying tithes in churches doesn’t sit well with him. He has also urged his followers not to pay tithes but rather take it to the less privileged homes.”
