A video making rounds on social media, shows moment a Kenyan Bus Preacher lost his cool after he was given Ksh.1 (which is approximately N3.58.) as offering by a passenger.
While it was common for Kenyan Pastors at the end of their sermon to ask Passengers for offering to help them spread the Word even further, the Preacher directed his anger at the passenger who he asked “can give a man of God who will bury you, such money.”
Brian Mutinda who shared the video on Twitter, wrote;
“Can you give this to your child? You can’t! How come you can give me, a man of God?” the agitated preacher asked a passenger thrusting the money in his face. It’s satanic, evil-minded, you cannot give something like this. Even if you find it inside the bus, you can’t pick,” the preacher said in anger

This is coming after the Founder of Faith Revival Apostolic Church, Apostle Paul Taiwo Adenuga, revealed how some clerics spend tithes and offerings of their members. According to him, some pastors spend their tithes on setting up businesses and establishing schools for the purpose of making money.
In an interview with PUNCH, the self-acclaimed apostle said:
“In their bid to make sure that they are known all over the world, many Nigerian servants of God now target influential people, particularly bank chiefs and top public servants to recruit as pastors. These are the people that are now introducing negative doctrines that are alien to the body of Christ.
“They spend tithes to set up businesses and establish schools for the purpose of making money. Instead of using tithes to pay good salaries to their full-time pastors, they recruit part-time rich pastors who won’t bother them about salaries since they are already comfortable.
“People don’t have problems paying tithes in accordance with God’s directive in the Bible book of Malachi but they are annoyed that the present-day pastors are no longer using the money for evangelism. They are spending tithes to build universities that children of the payers won’t be able to attend because of high school fees.”
“There will always be crises over tithing if pastors continue to use the money to acquire personal properties”.
