Popular clergyman, John Anosike has instructed his church members and workers that their January salary should be paid to him, not the church.
While preaching in his church recently, the Senior Pastor of New World Faith Ministries urged his church members to honor him with their first fruits, referring to their entire first salary of the year.
According to the clergyman, anyone who considers him their spiritual father should make sure they pay their first fruits to him, and not the church.
He added that anyone who pays their first fruits to him will witness wonders by the middle of the year, and if they don’t, he will return their money to them.
He further emphasized that he is not afraid of the criticisms or negative comments that would follow his statement.
Pastor Anosike’s demand has sparked mixed reactions on social media considering the significant debate and controversy surrounding the topic of first fruits.
