Former Presidential aide, Reno Omokri has tackled pastors who tell their members to pay tithe for divine protection but move around with armed security officers.
Taking to his Instagram page to address the controversial topic, Reno said it’s either such pastors don’t pay tithe or they don’t believe in their teaching.
He added that divine protection comes by faith, not tithe. Speaking further, Reno asserted that pastors are not supposed to collect tithe because God only instructed Levites to collect tithes.

“A pastor tells you that by paying tithe, you have divine protection. Then that same pastor goes out with armed security protecting him. It is either he does not pay his tithe, or he does not believe what he told you. Divine protection comes by faith, not by tithe! In fact, God ordained a day for you to be born and a day for you to die. Tithe or no tithe, no one can kill you before that day. And no one can extend your life beyond that day. Christ never collected tithes. His disciples never collected tithes. Do you know why? Because they were not Levites. ONLY Levites collected tithes because they were prevented from working by God. You see this in Numbers 18:21. New Testament Pastors worked-Acts 20:34. Old Testament prophets worked-2 Kings 6:1-5. The only people who did not work were Levites and pastors are NOT Levites.”
