The Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG has issued a statement on the controversial sacrifice form issued by one of their pastors in Region 14.
The statement issued by the church headquarters read, ‘The attention of the authorities of the Redeemed Christian Church of God has been drawn to a social media posting of a certain call for Sacrificial giving in RCCG REGION 14 and towards a certain building project. Our findings revealed that one of our Pastors in Charge of Parish has acted without approval. Whilst we decry his approach, we will like to state that giving is a God ordained principle and that we teach and encourage in RCCG. However, we do not condone or encourage any form of compulsion and would not be a party to undue and unnecessary exploitation. We would like to state that should anyone give towards this project or any other, let him or her give out of conviction and NOT compulsion but because God loves a cheerful giver. Shalom.
