A shocking video which shows highly placed Nigerian pastor, Pastor Ashimolowo asking his members to pay $1000 or N1000 for every year each of them has lived on earth so they can receive blessings from what he calls ‘Seed of Glorious Expectation’ is currently making the rounds on social media.
Pastor Matthew Ashimolowo is the founder of Kingsway International Christian Centre KICC.
In the video now gone viral, Pastor Ashimolowo demanded in a church service that his members give what he described “the seed of Glorious expectation”, which is according to the number of years they have lived on earth.
The pastor said in the video:
“For every year you have lived on earth, I want you to give a N100… No sorry, a N1000 naira.
“If you have lived on earth for 35 years, you give N35,000. You have lived 60 years, you give N60,000.
“Those who are paying one thousand dollars to the left while those paying in naira to the right.
“Thousand dollars to the left, thousand naira to the right, those that are doing the both, to the middle.“Get out of your seats.”
Video was reposted by OAP Freeze who has always frowned at the ways pastors in Nigeria become super rich and live flamboyant lifestyles, while their members suffer to pay tithe and offerings.
Freeze’s caption read:
“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?”
