A video capturing a Nigerian clergyman, Prophet Okeke, admonishing his church members about their ‘small’ offerings has surfaced online, sparking a heated debate on social media.
In the viral video, Prophet Okeke expressed his disappointment at churchgoers who claimed to possess substantial wealth but only offered very small sums to God.
He questioned the actions behind individuals having one million naira and giving a mere five hundred naira as an offering.
The cleric contended that such a small offering would only be accepted by an oracle, implying that it lacked sincerity and demonstrated a lack of devotion to God.
He further emphasized that the amount of money given as an offering reflected the depth of one’s commitment to God.
The video quickly gained traction on social media, with online users sharing their opinions and engaging in spirited discussions about the role of offerings in religious practice.
Some applauded the prophet for his remarks, praising him for challenging the faithful to demonstrate genuine commitment to their faith.
While others have criticized his approach online, arguing that the size of an offering should not dictate one’s spirituality or love for God
As the video continues to circulate, it has created much buzz online and it serves as a reminder for individuals to reflect on their own acts of worship.
