The general overseer of Victory Life Bible Church
Abeokuta, Ogun state, Apostle Lawrence Achudume, has come under criticism from Nigerians after asking his church members to drop N5,000 and various amounts of money in his hand so that they can receive their blessings.
In a trending video posted online, the cleric can be heard telling the congregation that if anyone has N5,000, N10,000 or N3,000, he/she should come and drop it in his hand because what he’s doing is special and wants his congregation to connect to it.
Church members trooped out in their numbers to drop the offering as the pastor told them that money will locate them anywhere they go.
Nigerian Facebook users have heavily criticised the pastor over his mode of offering as they say that one’s blessings doesn’t depend on how much he or she gives.
Recently, the pastor’s wife, Rev. Folake Achudume, trended online after asking members of the church to give N21, 000 so they can secure a divine intervention within 21 days.
In a video which went viral, the clergywoman asked those that do not have the money during the service, to come to her office within the week to drop the money.
