Bishop Mike Okonkwo tells his members to pay tithes willingly after confessing he once threatened members to pay (Video)

The founder and presiding Bishop of The Redeemed Evangelical Mission (TREM), Bishop Mike Okonkwo has confessed to threatening people into paying tithe.

Okonkwo said he once threatened members of his church to pay tithe or things will be tight.

Addressing members of his church, the clergy man noted that pastors are in the habit of using certain “semantics” to manipulate their members into paying tithe.

He said, “The first mention of tithe, there was no curse in it. Abraham gave the tithe of all to Melchizedek which was before the law. There was no curse and he did it willingly.

“I have frightened the church with curses for not paying tithes and that was because I didn’t know any better.

“You know we conjure all kinds of semantic like, ‘If you don’t pay your tithe, your life will be tight,’ and the people pay out of fear without God’s blessing.

“God wants you to pay tithe out of love, it shouldn’t be about the money but about Jesus.”

He further stressed that tithes should be given out of the benevolence of one’s heart and not out of fear.
