A Nigerian lady is at war with netizens for their negative tendencies towards tithing.
In her opinion, she decides what to do with her hard-earned money and therefore doesn’t understand why people often call out Christians who part away with their money for the church in the name of tithing.
She was found quoting on Twitter thus; “I work for my money, I get paid, and I decided to remove 10% for God and spend the remaining 90% right? How come the logical conclusion of why I am poor is not what I do with the remaining 90% but the 10% that I gave?”
See a round up of some reactions that greeted her comment;

@iamcalyem wrote: No one has the right to tell you how to spend your money pls. The big question is; Does the 10% actually ends up where God wants it to be or it ends up helping “Men of God” live a more luxurious lifestyle Does the 10% have to go to into church pocket before it count as tithe?
