Dr Abel Damina, a Nigerian televangelist and General Overseer of the Power City International Ministry, stated that Dangote does not contribute tithe despite being the richest man in Africa and that contributing to the Church has no earthly return.
According to the host of the regular TV and radio program, Righteous Invasion Of Truth [R.I.O.T.], if Dangote, who does not contribute tithe and offering, is the richest man in Africa, being rich is not the outcome of paying tithe and offering in Church. "God will not bless you for contributing in church." How much are you willing to give to God in order for Him to benefit you? God does not respond to your generosity. He blessed you before you realized what it meant to give. God is both the first and finest gift.
Humans don't make allowances for doubling. If we donate to God for an increase, Dangote is greater than God because Dangote is not born again, does not give a tithe, and is Africa's richest man. Why hasn't God increased all the donations individuals have made to make them affluent like Dangote? There's something wrong with that Gospel. "It's a forgery," Dr Damina stated.
According to him, the notion of offering to God for multiplication is scripturally incorrect and dishonest. "Prosperity preachers will assure you that if you contribute, your money will multiply. MMM is not God. Stop asking God to increase your money; it's a scam.
It's not quite like that. If you want your money to grow, get more jobs and start more businesses, but when it comes to God, your giving does not multiply; rather, it translates into the salvation of souls for eternal reward. Giving to God has no earthly recompense. So, don't anticipate anything here. According to the Bible, you should store your treasures in heaven, where no thief can steal them, for that is where your reward will be. So, don't let anyone fool you. God is not going to bless you for giving in Church,” Dr Damina said.
He went on to say that he is determined to expose beliefs that have no scriptural basis since he was once a victim. "I'm telling you this because I preached it because that's what they taught me." I thought that was true until I sat down and looked at God again, understanding God's character and looking at God's word. I discovered that the instruction is incorrect. God gives to both those who give and those who do not contribute, for he causes rain to fall on both the good and the evil. God is the one who shines the light on both the bad and the good. There are no variables or shadows of turning, and He finds no fault. "He is a good and just God," remarked Dr Damina.
