Nigerian Televangelist, Onyirioha Nnamdi Mike Bamiloye has said that paying tithe from sports betting winnings is bribery before God.
The cleric made this known via Instagram on Thursday, January 12.
According to Bamiloye, those who engaged in such were trying to bribe God.
He added that those set of persons think they can appease God, buy him over and blindfold him.
Bamiloye further wondered why some Christians think they can appease God with the gains of betting.
The cleric said no one can blindfold God.
“Bros, You played sport Betting and won and brought the Tithe and Offering to the Lord’s House, to win the Lord to your side.
“You think you would Blindfold Him and appease Him with a Bribe?”
Meanwhile, Netizens reacted on social media.
“Evangelist Sir, do you say the same thing to the politicians and civil servants who loot the treasury of millions of naira?

” hmmmmm children of God … Abuses everywhere, may God show us mercy and revelation…”
“God cannot be mocked “
“Is gamblin a sin??”
“Is anything wrong in winning a lottery and bring the tithe to God?”
