A Nigerian man on twitter has dragged popular clergyman, David Oyedepo, for saying people who do not pay tithes are under a financial curse. The cleric in a recent message about paying tithes, tweeted ;
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.

In response, Wesley wrote ;
This is not true. There is no scripture that ties prosperity or wealth to tithing under the new priesthood.
We can’t be conveniently cherry-picking the scriptures to support what is sweet to our ears.
Let’s focus on the gospel of Christ and less on these covetous mssgs
You spend more time posting teachings on tithing than any other message. 2days ago, same message. 4 days ago, same message.
Please, preach more on the gospel. People need God now more than ever in these last days.
God’s love surpasses material things or money money money.
