In a compelling video shared on Facebook, Pastor David Ibiyeomie passionately urged his congregation to go beyond the act of mindlessly copying notes during spiritual teachings. The charismatic pastor emphasized the critical importance of engaging with Scriptures and understanding the message of God.
Pastor Ibiyeomie cautioned against the common practice of merely replicating biblical verses without truly absorbing the essence of God’s word. He stated, “Always learn to look at the Scriptures when the message of God is going on. Don’t be copying Scriptures without paying attention to the word of God. Because most of you are always guilty of that.”
One of the key points the seasoned pastor highlighted was the distinction between blind replication and genuine obedience. He stressed, “It is better to obey than to copy notes. If you copy all the notes on my teaching (and) you don’t pay tithe, it is useless. So hear the word of God first before you copy.”
Pastor Ibiyeomie shared a personal anecdote to drive home his message, revealing that he didn’t copy how to pay tithe; instead, he emphasized that he pays his tithe through obedience to the word of God.
