Shepard Bushiri Demands For Tithe During Coronavirus Lockdown Instead Of Donating
The self proclaimed prophet of the Enlightened Christian Church(ECG) Shepherd Bushiri says tithe will be given with or without coronavirus. The prophet incited critics after asking members of his church to pay tithe during coronavirus. People were shocked that the prophet is asking money rather than donating to the needy.
Bushiri says they will not stop collecting offering during coronavirus and if pastors do not believe in offering their congregants should join ECG.
“In ECG on Sunday we give our tithe, with or without coronavirus. We have pastors who I have seen shouting out why is prophet Bushiri calling for offering in the church…why!! Okay if you do not believe in offering can you send those members of your church who believe in offering to come and give to our church. We are still collecting offering in ECG and we will not stop because this is what we have been doing,” said Bushiri during live session.
Bushiri has received flack for asking money from social media, this is the second time the prophet ask offering from the congregants, in his first video clip he said people should put offering on the church account.
“You are saying it’s a ‘Sunday and I cannot go without my offering’. There’s a church account I’m putting on the screen right now,”
