We Don’t Collect Offering At Our Crusades – Evangelist Bonnke Gives Stern Warning To Nigerians

Popular evangelist Reinhard Bonnke who is in Nigeria for his widely anticipated Farewell Crusade, has warned the public not to give offerings.

Pastor Reinhard Bonnke, the German Pentecostal evangelist, has warned members of the public and, especially, [email protected] at his ongoing Farewell Crusade holding in Lagos, that he does not collect offerings during his crusades, Punch Metro reports.

“We are here to bless you; we have brought you gifts of salvation and deliverance; we are here to give and not to take anything from you.

“Anyone who asks you to give offering for this crusade is a thief and should be reported immediately,” the sponsors of the crusade, Christ for All Nations, warns [email protected] on Thursday at the crusade ground.


This is coming on the heels of suspicion that certain unscrupulous persons might want to malign the credibility of the preacher by seizing the opportunity offered by the huge crowd at Bonnke’s crusade to raise money for personal use.

Observers opine that Bonnke’s decision is a radical departure from what critics see as “normal practice” by some open-air preachers who urge crusade [email protected] to donate money for offering and other projects.

A respondent, 50-year-old Mr. Ifeanyi Duru, said Bonnke’s decision to not raise offerings at his crusades is “an attestation to his sincerity” in only being concerned about “the salvation of souls.”

Duru recalled that as a student in the University of Benin in the mid 1980s, a popular preacher from the region (name withheld) had to contend with the activities of people he described as “rogues” who tried to raise unofficial offerings from the crowd.

“The preacher, who is now late, had decided to collect offering during his open-air crusades, but some unscrupulous persons tried to outsmart him,” Duru said.

He added that the popular preacher beat the thieves to their game by having different colours of offering bags for each night of the week-long crusade.

“The colours to be used were announced just a few seconds to the commencement of each offering collection; and because the rogues had no prior idea, they were defeated in their purpose,” Duru said.

He, however, commended Bonnke’s “caring heart” for refusing to succumb to what he called “the temptation to exploit the crowd,” who he said would have given “generously” if asked.

Thank God, he is not a Nigeria pastor. Nigeria pastors must collect offering, some will collect gate pass and entrance fees.

Them need to reduce this offering and tithe wahala.. the country no dey move forward,the country no dey move forward,meanwhile millions dey go for offerings every Sunday,while the tithings no need to talk about. These offerings and tithes if them use am help the needy on the streets,naija would be a better place.  We never heard of these pastors worshipping money what God forbids,give out millions of dollars to the needy in naija.  Just one private jet costs millions to maintain monthly. Vanity upon vanity. The Bible states that it would be easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a wealthy man to see the kingdom of God. Right now in naija you can't count how many pastors are Freemasons or related to other occults. Shame!
