A Ghanaian clergyman, Rev. Dr. Kwadwo Bempah, has averred that not every poor person should be helped.

The clergyman who stated this during a sermon in his church noted that Christians should not give what belongs to God to the poor.

He told his congregation not to be eager to help every poor person, as they don’t know why the person is in that condition.

According to him, some poor people are simply suffering the consequences of bad decisions they made in the past.

His teaching has, however, sparked diverse reactions from social media users. While some agreed with him, others had contrary opinions. See some comments below.

An Instagram user @stanbnx wrote, “Christianity can be confus! ng sometimes, one priest will tell you to pay tithe while another priest will tell you it’s not necessary, Only God knows the right thing, Bible is the best direction.”

Another Instagram user wrote, “Pastor you be scam. I’d rather give to the poor than give to the church.”

@debbylicious, “But truly giving to the poor u need discernment…..Some of then disguise to be poor and use your money for rituals….. Exactly why u give money to your uncles and they use it against you”.
