Tema-based producer and sound engineer, Kaywa has explained that alms giving is not the same as paying tithe.
Few days ago actor and entrepreneur John Dumelo was in the news for saying he (John Dumelo) would rather give to the needy than to pay tithe in church.
Reacting to that, Kaywa disagreed with the actor saying, not every pastor is interested in distorting money from his or her church members.
“They are two different things, they are all giving anyway but there is difference. I can’t say paying of tithe is not from God because people have been blessed through the payment of tithe. According to the Bible, God will protect your work and finance when you pay tithe but when you give it will come back to you doubled so they are different” he explained.
The ‘Highly Spiritual Music’ boss also touched on church offerings and cleared misconceptions surrounding it.
He said offerings given by church members most often are being used for God’s work and not for a pastor’s personal benefits.
“I don’t also agree when someone says I won’t go to church because the pastor will take my money, it’s not every pastor that has that perception. You are mistaking if you think the offering you are giving goes to the pastor’s pocket. It’s for the work of God so don’t concentrate on where the money will land but concentrate on the fact that you are in the presence of God and you have given something to support his work. Worship is not only about going to church to sing and listen to the word of God, worship is also about giving your substance and the substance is your money so they both work”, he added.
