TITHING CONTROVERSY: Daddy Freeze fires back at Apostle Suleman, challenges ‘man of God’ to debate

TITHING CONTROVERSY: Daddy Freeze fires back at Apostle Suleman, challenges ‘man of God’ to debate

Cool FM’s Daddy Freeze has issued a reply to Apostle Johnson Suleman the President of the Omega Fire Ministries worldwide (OFM) who weighed-in on the tithing controversy which initially pitched the radio personality and Pastor Enoch Adeboye of the Redeemed Christian Church.

Reacting to Apostle Suleman’s statement which chided him saying he had no right to attack and argue with a man of God over the issue, Freeze in his reply told Suleman that he is ready for a debate over the tithing controversy while also noting that Pastor Adeboye is not God.

Freeze wrote; “Dear apostle Suleiman, the leader of the #FreeNation greets you and brings glad tidings.

“It would have gladdened my heart profoundly, and done the body of Christ much eminence, if you had shed some scriptural light on the tithing issue, as against going down the well worn path of sentimental and emotional blackmail your ‘elders’ have familiarized us with.

“In 2017, Nigerian Pentecostal Christianity can no longer lean on the seemingly weak foundations it was established upon, as the numbers are clearly not adding up, hence the need for the #FreeTheSheeple movement to be birthed, to question conventional wisdom and challenge obtuse doctrines.

“You made a statement that I find disheartening. According to you, “The GO corrected a wrong notion and I dared to respond to him”. Let me ask you, is he God? Or do I look like those people kissing and hugging his empty chair as seen in that forlorn video that went viral?

“With all accorded respect sir, I have EVERY RIGHT, to demand an explanation for a doctrine that is evidently not in symphony with the teachings of Christ, or in synchrony with Biblical scripture.

“Therefore, until either you, or anyone else provides conclusive biblical clarification, for why your churches collect tithe, despite the glaring contradiction that your first teachers and pastors, the 12 disciples and the churches they set up never did, this matter would linger.

“About the debate you have suggested. I’m all up for it, let’s communicate the venue and have this addressed once and for the last time.

“I do extend my utmost regards and kind considerations. ~FRZ”

Apostle Suleman in his earlier statement said Freeze has no right to attack a pastor on church issue. “Somebody who is not a doctor cannot teach a certified doctor how to go about doing his job; he will just be laughed at. Someone who is not a journalist can’t teach a true journalist how he should do his work; they will just be laughing at him.”

Pastor Adeboye, the RCCG founder who appeared to be angry at the position of Daddy Freeze over tithing, said his attention was drawn to how the fair skinned radio personality said congregants should buy alcohol to drink with their tithes in churches- a position which he frowned at.
