The founder of the International God’s Way Church, Bishop Daniel Obinim, has clarified recent comments that suggested that he had banned five and 10 cedis as offertory.

According to him, the reportage was untrue because he was referring to monies being given as thanksgiving for a favour God has done for his members.

He stressed that in principle, his church does not accept collection and offertory but if members are minded to pay for any reason, they can do so with any denomination even coins.

“Claims that Obinim says anyone with less than 20 cedis should not step foot in my church is untrue. I never said so,” he said in a video posted on YouTube.

“What I said was, if you want to thank God for some favour, be it that he has through me done you some favour, you cannot put five or 10 cedis into an envelope and drop it on the pulpit or into the offertory bowl.

“If you think five or 10 cedis is what God deserves, it’s your own cup of tea,” he stressed adding that such sums cannot even cater for the cost of running the church relative to electricity consumption.

He disclosed further that the church’s TV station, OB TV, gulps a billion cedi each month.
