The Bible says in Malachi 3:10 that: “Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house…”

The above scripture means the tithe must be sent to the church and not used on any other thing.

Well, a Nigerian Catholic Priest who seems to be going against what the Bible said told his church members that they can dedicate their tithe to helping the needy as opposed to bringing it to church.

In a viral video, Father Oluoma said if a Christian witnesses an accident and the only spare money they have is their tithe, it is good to use it to save the life of the accident victim, instead of bringing it to church for the pastor.

The Priest added that by so doing, the person is not cheating God but a greedy man of God who is making people believe that their tithe must be brought to the altar of the church before it will be accepted by God.
