Kampala Archbishop Dr Cyprian Kizito Lwanga has shocked Christians gathering in Lubaga Cathedral when he proposed to have church tithe deducted directly from the salaries of Christians.
Dr Lwanga who was preaching on Sunday morning said many Christians don’t declare the 10 per cent meant for tithe, so they end up giving little to church.
“Christians are complaining that they’re too many collections at churches today,” he said. “Christians are giving very little to church, and mandatory tithing would help solve the cash crisis in the church.”
Preaching during the Archdiocesan day celebrations at Lubaga Cathedral animated by Gayaza Parish; The Most Rev. Lwanga said many Christians don’t declare the 10% meant for tithe and also said the Christians are complaining that there are too many collections at churches today.
He suggested mandatory tithing would help solve the cash crisis in the church.
“The Bible tells Christians to give back to their places of worship a tenth of their income . However many Christians are complaining their money is being abused by church ministers, while others don’t really care about tithing anymore” he said.
