Kumuyi Urges Christians to Prioritize Charity Amidst Economic Hardship

In a widely circulated video, Dr. William Folohunso Kumuyi, the General Superintendent of the Deeper Life Bible Church, encourages Christians to redirect their offerings towards aiding the poor and unemployed rather than solely contributing to church development.

Kumuyi emphasizes the need for Christians to not only focus on building churches but also to extend a helping hand to their impoverished neighbors who struggle to meet basic life necessities.

 He recounts an example where a preacher urged his congregation to allocate their offering funds to support those in need around them.

This call for charitable action aligns with the ongoing discussions around the ostentatious lifestyles of some Nigerian pastors, as criticized by controversial On-Air Personality (OAP), Daddy Freeze. 

Freeze, known for his stance against tithing, cited biblical references to question extravagant spending by pastors while their followers live in poverty.

Kumuyi stresses the importance of balancing church development with addressing the immediate needs of the community.

 He urges Christians to allocate a portion of their financial contributions for charity, highlighting the paradox of constructing grand church buildings while neglecting neighbors suffering from hunger, malnutrition, and starvation.

As economic hardships persist, incidents of tragic consequences, such as a family tragedy linked to poisonous ‘Amala’ consumption and a disturbing case of a father attacking his son over a portion of rice, underscore the pressing challenges faced by many in the country.

 These distressing events reflect the broader impact of economic difficulties on the cost of living and rising inflation in Nigeria.

In light of these challenges, Kumuyi’s message resonates as a timely call for Christians to prioritize the well-being of their neighbors during these trying times.
