Churches must stop fleecing poor flocks

I AM a Christian who is part of afleeced flock.

The sentiments expressed by Redi Direko about the intimidating tactics of church leaders is felt by many in the flock.

Could Direko ask Eddie Makhue of the South African Council of Churches for an explanation since they are privy to what goes on in God's mind. Ask him why they allow churches to exploit the flock by making them pay the tithe when Christians were never, not by Christ or the apostles, asked to pay ?

Why have they abetted this wholesale fraud for decades? If you can get the nation to discuss this issue you will free poor black folks who know they are being exploited but keep quiet for fear of perdition.
