This small drama started last week when Triple MG boss, Ubi Franklin took to his Instagram to say tithing is for matured believers, obviously a shade at Freeze’ teachings.
Ubi Franklin has now made a statement on LITV’s The Report Card show that his opinion on tithing was rubbish.
Ubi Franklin, who was a guest on the show, shared his opinion on Tithing and dismissed Freeze’s criticism against enriching pastors through it.
According to him;
“I pay my tithe. I’m not even interested in that rubbish Freeze is saying. I believe part of my success and how I’m growing is because how I’m able to not hold on to what I’m supposed to give to God.”
Freze responded, calling out Ubi for being disrespectful to him over his opinion.
Dear @ubifranklintriplemg, I have never insulted your person, so you stating that I am “saying rubbish” is quite unfair.
You said tithing was in the Bible and you obey it. Please what part of the Bible if I may ask? Is it Deuteronomy 14:22-26 that says we should eat our tithe in the place the LORD has chosen? Or is it Malachi 3:8-10 that was debunked by this your same pastor when he said, from a post where his last sermon was quoted on Linda Ikeji’s blog, that Christians are not under any curse for not paying tithe?
I’m not sure Pastor Paul would have chosen you to be the mouthpiece of his ‘grace’ doctrine, especially with your state of benightedness on this particular issue.
Following the footsteps of many of your pastors, you haven’t addressed my ‘rubbish’ with the Bible. Instead, you have used your personal ‘sentiment’ and ’emotions’ to debate my claims.
Dear brother, we are all entitled to our feelings, emotions, sentiment and ‘understanding’. Unfortunately, we aren’t entitled to our own facts and your attempt to debunk my ‘facts’ with your ’emotions’ is doing the doctrine you swear by, a huge disservice.
Furthermore, if you stick by your pastor’s ‘grace’ doctrine of ‘unmerited favor’ saying you tithe is indirectly saying you are paying for this favor, rendering its claim of being ‘unmerited’ all but futile!
In my own opinion, you and pastor Paul should be looking for bible verses that show that our first ‘pastors’, the 12 disciples, collected tithe and pointing out bible verses that show where believers that weren’t Jewish, paid tithe.
I sincerely wish you good luck in your search! ~FRZ
Ubi also responded in a now deleted post, saying what Freeze has been preaching is unhealthy. See below.
“I didn’t insult you. What you have been preaching is unhealthy. That’s all I meant. I will never insult your person but if you make comments that are not right, I’ll make sure I set it right according to my belief’
