The General Overseer of Refinery Church International, Mr Harrison Ayintete, has said it is the duty of every believer to pay their pastors’ salaries.

The cleric who made this bogus claim in a post on his official X handle, stressed the relevance of Christians rewarding their pastors monetarily, quoting various biblical references.

Harrison noted that conscientious christians acknowledge the importance of offering their pastors a fair salary or other forms of assistance.

“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 labourer is worthy of his reward.“ 1 Timothy 5:18 KJV That’s simple Bible,” Ayintete wrote on the microblogging platform.

While backing up his controversial points with more Bible verses, he 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 labourer is worthy of his hire. Go not from house to house.

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