Popular Nigerian pastor caught on tape ‘begging’ church members to make dollar donations

EagleHeadline | Jun. 20, 2017

A Nigerian pastor, Matthew Ashimolowo who is worth over $10 million has been caught on tape telling his church members to donate for a fund raising according to the number of years they have lived on earth.

Ashimolowo is the founder of Kingsway International Christian Center located in the United Kingdom with branches in Nigeria.

In the video which was shared by Nigerian radio personality, DaddyFreeze, Ashimolowo urged his members to give money according to the number of years they have lived on earth.

Nigerians have however  condemned the act saying that such a thing was unheard of in the Bible and is another way of fleecing the poor church members of their hard-earned money.

OAP Freeze wrote: “Nigerians, their IQ of 67 and their men of God. Come and give a thousand dollars for every year you have lived??”

“Can you show me anywhere in the Bible where Jesus used this ‘fund raising’ approach? I remember 5 loaves and 2 fishes but 1000 dollars???????”

“Someone commented: “Let’s see who will still defend this act, I’m waiting for that person…. so the Poor ones that don’t have 1k$ or Naira will go to hell abi ?”

“Wetin dey pain me pass be sey if you go to these Pastors for help, you won’t even gain access to them and when you eventually do, they will put you on a long thing.” another added.

“Instead of me to go to church. I swear make I die for beer parlour with my beer in my hand and go to hell fire.” someone else commented.

Another said: “Wow even pastor Ashimolowo??? Kai my fav pastor ..”

“Dis one shock me, it s well wit us.” then another added.

“He is even nice. A Pastor once said calculate the age of everyone in your Family in $… i can never forget that day. My sis & I jst dey look like zombie. I aint falling for that trick. Igbala is freeeee.”

“And this is supposed to be a renowned pastor? Those of you calling for Daddy Freeze head shey you can see. This is supposed to be a High rated man of God. Tufiakwa. This brainwashism is something else.”

“Get rich or die trying. You wanna be rich, right? Build a big beautiful Church, be eloquent, be smart and perform fake miracles. Lobatan!!! And the Lord shall bless you according to his riches in heaven.”

“Probably those ones who have dollars would stay in estate heaven and those ones with naira would just stay in pako heaven! SMH and the congregations are still busy making nonsense noise at the background when a man clearly wants to make you go bankrupt!”

Well,it might sound foolish to give based on instructions.Acts4 people in the first church sold their lands even houses and brought the money to apostles FEET not even to church accountant vs36-37(if some of us were there comments on apostle Peter will be bad).Giving to God is been able to give ur all. If u can't give don't comment on y ppl give,it is their money. The poor widow gave her all Jesus didn't say give her back her money nor did Jesus gave her money cos she will go bankrupt but he said she gave the best.

Part of the signs of the last days,Matt.7:15-20;24:3-14,and Jesus Christ said not everyone saying Lord, Lord will enter into the kingdom of God(Matt.7:21-23).People fall victims to these False Prophets, because they don't settle down to see what the Bible says about worshipping God.

It is sad how things are going now a days. Let all of us keep our fingers crossed, God will no matter what prove who He is.
