Kumuyi Urges Christians: Prioritize the Poor Over Church Offerings

Support the Poor Over Church Buildings, Deeper Life Leader Advises

Kumuyi Church Offerings Advice

Dr. William Folohunso Kumuyi, the esteemed General Superintendent of the Deeper Life Bible Church, is urging Christians to rethink traditional tithing and offering practices. In a move that’s stirring conversations and drawing attention far and wide, Dr. Kumuyi suggests redirecting church offerings to aid the poor and unemployed, a gesture that underscores compassion and practical Christianity. The message, delivered through a now-viral video, showcases Dr. Kumuyi addressing his congregation with a powerful narrative. He emphasizes the importance of not just focusing on the construction and enrichment of church buildings but also on addressing the immediate needs of neighbors struggling to meet basic life necessities.

This bold stance isn’t in isolation. It echoes sentiments once voiced by controversial On-Air Personality (OAP), Daddy Freeze, who criticized certain Nigerian pastors for their luxurious lifestyles amidst widespread poverty among their congregants. Freeze’s advocacy for a more personal use of tithes, as outlined in Deuteronomy 14:22, calls for believers to ‘eat your tithe’ in a manner that benefits them directly, a perspective that seems to align with Dr. Kumuyi’s current counsel.

Dr. Kumuyi’s message is clear: while it’s noble to build the church, Christians must not overlook the dire needs of those around them. He recalls an instance where a preacher instructed his congregation to direct their substantial offerings towards helping the impoverished in their midst, a gesture that redefines the act of giving. This approach to charity and support within Christian communities is not just about meeting immediate needs but also about fostering a sense of unity and empathy. It’s a call to prioritize human welfare over infrastructural development, especially in times of economic hardship that have led to devastating consequences for many families across the country.

Recent tragic incidents, including a family affected by poisonous food and a violent dispute over a meal, underscore the severity of the economic crisis in Nigeria. These stories highlight the urgent need for support and intervention to alleviate the suffering of the most vulnerable in society. Dr. Kumuyi’s advocacy for a more inclusive and practical application of Christian is a reminder that the essence of faith lies in compassion and action, not just in the edification of physical structures.
