Creflo Dollar, a minister in the US, has repudiated his view on tithing. For many years, Creflo had emphasized the value of tithing in his sermons, warning his audience that skipping tithing allows devourers to enter and take one’s life.
In a recent sermon, Creflo said that even as a preacher, he was still learning. He then urged his congregation to burn any books or tapes he had ever written or delivered on tithing because it is not biblical.
‘The teachings that I have shared in the time past on the subject of tithing were not correct and today I stand in humility to correct somethings that I have taught for years and believed for years but could never understand it clearly because I have not yet been confronted with the gospel of grace which has made the difference.
I have no shame at all saying to you, throw away every book, tape and video I ever did on the subject of tithing..unless it alines with this”
He said religion is sustained by two factors, fear and guilt and that if there is one subject that the church has used for a long time to keep people in fear and guilt, it is in the subject of Tithing.
