Reno Omokri fires back at Adeboye for saying non-tithers won’t make heaven

Published

Reno Omokri, ex-media aide to the former president of Nigeria, Goodluck Jonathan, has faulted the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor E.A Adeboye, for saying that people who don’t pay tithes won’t make heaven .

In a tweet posted on his account on Sunday, Omokri insisted that “no pastor can set a financial qualification to entering heaven”.

“The only qualification Jesus gave for entry to heaven is that you should be born again then born of water and the Spirit.

“No pastor can set a financial qualification to entering heaven.

“Paying tithes has nothing to do with entering heaven. Such pastors should read 1 Timothy 6:5-6,” he wrote.

Adeboye had told his congregation at this month’s Holy Ghost Service at the Redemption Camp that “I want to give every one of you pastors an opportunity to repent tonight.

“And then to go back, immediately after this convention, to restitute your ways with your congregation.

“Make it clear to them…Anyone who is not paying his tithe is not going to heaven, full stop.”

Shiites Opt For New Openings Into Resolution, Suspends Street Protests

Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN) has announced a temporary suspension of   street protests in demand for the release of its  leader, Sheikh Ibrahim Elzakzaky and his wife, Zeenat.

IMN in a statement issued on Wednesday by its  spokesman, Ibrahim Musa, informed that  the suspension of the free Elzakzaky street protests is to allow for some new openings into the resolution of the problems, especially the court case instituted by their lawyers on the proscription order made by the federal government this week.

Mr. Musa also hinted that the IMN has taken the step in good faith out of respect for some eminent people and groups, whose input in the resolution of the problems appears genuine,while they sincerely hope an amicable way could be found to solve the crises surrounding the alleged illegal detention of their leader for almost four years now.

“If at all any protests occur anywhere in the country, it might be this notice hasn’t reached those in the field or this message is misunderstood or it is some security agents who are mischievously behind it as they have been doing in an attempt to smear our image and be seen as unruly people rather than as victims of savage oppression since 2015.

“We are committed to exploring the new openings we have seen in resolving this protracted issue.

“We, therefore, reiterate our demand that our leader, his wife, and several others in detention be given their freedom denied to them since 2015”, the statement reads.

Kidnappers are not spirits, end bloodletting – CAN to Govt

The Chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) Kaduna State, Reverend Joseph Hayab has stated that with adequate and prompt intelligence gathering, the insecurity currently bedeviling Nigeria could be stopped.

Hayab, who expressed dismay at the frequent occurrence of kidnapping and other social vices, noted that the government at all levels must take decisive steps to end the ugly situation in the country.

Speaking to newsmen in Kaduna on Sunday at the closing of the 53rd Annual Convention of the United Church of Christ In Nations (HEKAN) he said, “The government must do more on intelligence gathering. These kidnappers are not spirits, they are humans, they can be traced and stopped.”

Hayab, who has been at the forefront of championing peaceful coexistence between Christians and Muslims for decades, said that the killings in any part of Northern Nigeria needed no rhetorics.

“We as a church and Christian leaders appeal to government to act beyond rhetoric, the fact is that the government needs to do more,” he submitted.

He lamented that insecurity had denied Kaduna State of many things.

“Everyday you are paying money to kidnappers, everyday people are scared of engaging in their normal activities, this is worrisome,” he added.
