Pastor Williams Kumuyi, the founder of the Bible Ministries for Deeper Christian Life, once stated that he will return tithes and offerings of some parish residents. According to kumuyi, he will return the money of members who are still living in sin.
The clergyman made this point when he addressed his members on the subject of holiness at the church headquarters in Lagos. Kumuyi emphasized the importance of living a holy life, saying that God does not need “the sinner’s money.”
He maintained that it is pointless for a sinner to pay tithes and offerings in church.
“If you are a sinner here, God does not need your money. All the money you are giving in this church does not get to God. You are just wasting your money.
As a matter of fact if I know the numbers of sinners here and how much they gave as tithes and offering I will remove it and give it back to them. God does not need it and the church does not need it,” Kumuyi said.
