Man narrates experience with pastor who mandated members to sow a seed with a huge sum of money Twitter user identified by his handle as @haroldwrites has narrated his experience with a pastor who insisted that members should pledge a huge amount of money to the church. Recounting his experience, the man recalled the audacity and manner of which the pastor used to mandate members to bring in a tremendous amount of money. He stated that the pastor justified his actions by saying that God isn’t a small God and therefore, he must be given something big. He wrote: “I remember when I attended HOTR in 2012. Pastor Paul Adefarasin was out of town, and a guest pastor was invited to preach. At the end of the sermon, the guest pastor asked the congregation to pledge money. The manner in which the request (demand?) was made was distasteful. The guest pastor placed certain figures and asked people who wanted to pledge to come out for special blessings. I think he started from N1m or some ridiculous sum. The pastor prayed for each group according to how much they agreed to pledge. You could feel the palpable tension in the air when the Pastor repeatedly called for certain amounts. “N500k! N500k! How many people want God’s blessings? Rabatadadada! N500K! God is not a cheap God! Come out and get your blessings!” It was like an auction for blessings…”
