CREFLO DOLLAR REPENTS OF THE TITHING DOCTRINE
By Akin Ojumu
After decades of leading his flock astray by teaching them that tithing is a divine ordinance that all Christians must abide by otherwise their lives will be tight and the devourer will invade their finances, Pastor Creflo Dollar has now repented of being one of the chief promoters of the compulsory tithing doctrine for New Testament believers. The prosperity preacher who became inordinately wealthy by teaching tithing now says he was wrong all along, and that tithing was never, and has never been, a requirement for Christians who live under grace.
To which I say, “Welcome Bro Creflo to the camp of the renegades.” Although, over the years, you have deceived and misled many people around the world by your insistence on tithing, and have fleeced your congregation out of their meagre resources by your strident teachings on tithing, those of us who have been called rebels because of our stance on tithing have no choice but to rejoice that you have finally seen the light and have turned from your erroneous ways.
Now that you have admitted the error of your tithing teachings, the next logical step for you is restitution. For us to take your repentance seriously, you must repatriate all the wealth you have accumulated from your erroneous teachings and the profits of your errors must be returned. The private jets must be sold, and the palatial mansions auctioned off, and the proceeds given back to the poor blokes from whom you took the money.
Anything short of that is evidence of insincerity of your repentance. We are waiting with our fingers tightly crossed and hoping you’d do right by the victims of your false teachings.
