An Abuja-based clergy and the senior pastor of Family Worship Centre, Pastor Sarah Omakwu, admonished her congregation not to bring the tithes from proceeds of prostitution, looting and sale of liquor to her church henceforth.
The charismatic 54-year old widow and mother of three, made the statement during her sermon on Sunday October 23, 2016.
“God does not want money from prostitution. God does not want money from drinking. Prostitution money, don’t bring it here (Family Worship Centre). Any money that do not glorify God, don’t put it in our offering. Any stolen money from government, keep it, give it to another church. Don’t bring it here, because I want you to go to heaven. Any business that God is not happy about, don’t bring that money to church. It’s not blessed money, its cursed money”, she said.
She wondered why some men will pay to have sex with women, instead of helping some of the ladies to solve their little problems so they can quit prostitution.
A visitor to the church, who spoke to communitystories.ng remarked that the preacher’s advice is “not common with most modern-day preachers, who do not care about the source of their tithe, so far it keeps coming.”
The preacher of one of the Abuja mega churches trended on Twitter in October 2015, about a year for her tweets using #SexualPerversion hashag.
