Pastor David Ibiyeomie, founder/presiding pastor of Salvation Ministries has revealed he does not pay 10 per cent as tithe as instructed by the Holy Bible.
Pastor Ibiyeomie, who spoke while addressing his members on Sunday at the church’s headquarters in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, stressed God would flog him if he pays 10 per cent as tithe.
Ibiyeomie described the refusal to pay tithe as a form of greed, adding that those who don’t tithe find life very tight for them.
“In fact, these days, I don’t even pay ten, my P.A. is there. I pay far beyond ten, for every money I get. That is what you are struggling to pay as tithe, me I pay more than ten percent as offering.
“My tithe is not fifteen percent, I won’t tell you the percentage, I’m on another level. I won’t tell you what I pay as tithe. If I pay ten percent, God will flog me.
“Me, pay tithe of ten percent for what? You pay ten percent, that’s the recommended one, but me, I’m at another level,” the Cleric said.
