A Responsible Christian Should Pay His Pastor Salary, Says Nigerian Cleric

A Responsible Christian Should Pay His Pastor Salary, Says Nigerian Cleric
Pastor Harrison Ayintete
A Nigerian clergyman and led Pastor at The Refinery Church International, Harrison Ayintete, has claimed that a Christian is irresponsible if he fails to pay his pastor monthly salary.

Pastor Harrison stated this when he took the gospel work to his verified X account where he cited many biblical verses to back his claim.

He stated that God indirectly paid the pastor through his followers. He encouraged the Christian faithful to show acts of responsibility and return the right of their pastors at their possession to the men of God by laying them salaries or rendering them other forms of assistance. He said:

“You owe your pastor salary! A responsible believer knows God pays his pastor through him or her.

”For the scripture saith, Thou shalt not muzzle the ox that treadeth out the corn. And, The laborer is worthy of his reward.“ 1 Timothy 5:18 KJV That’s simple Bible,” Ayintete wrote on the microblogging platform.

Backing up his points with more Bible verses, the said cleric wrote: “Jesus was financed by women He ministered to.

“Luke 8:3 KJV: And Joanna the wife of Chuza Herod’s steward, and Susanna, and many others, which ministered unto him of their substance.

“These are apart from expensive gifts like the alabaster box of oil, gold, myrrh, etc. at His birth, about 100 pounds of aloes, etc. by Nicodemus; the list goes on. The apostles were sustained by the people they ministered to

“Matthew 10:10 KJV: Nor scrip for your journey, neither two coats, neither shoes nor yet staves: for the workman is worthy of his meat.

“The workman is worthy of his meat, meat there is sustenance or salary.

“Luke 10:7 KJV: And in the same house remain, eating and drinking such things as they give: for the laborer is worthy of his hire. Go not from house to house.

“The laborer is worthy of his hire. Hire is paid. Salary! This is how God pays His servants.”

Pastor Harrison seemed to be resolute at his aim because when asked by a netizen if he was not bothered by the reactions of the people, as some netizens referred to him as a ‘fraudulent’ pastor, Ayintete said the likes of Pastor E.A. Adeboye of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), David Oyedepo of the Living Faith Church, and many top pastors in the country have all been accused and called series of unprintable names.
