Nigerian Lady (Name withheld) Narrates How she Mistakenly transferred N400,000 to her pastor instead of N40,000 for tithe and he refused to give her Back.
“This is not really a relationship issue.
“so my boyfriend made me start coming to his church sometimes around December 2019, I enjoyed it. Its a very popular church in Lagos.
“My boyfriend is a worker and his family goes there too. i have never missed a tithe payment. my boyfriend idolizes the pastor, treats him like a mini god, even the pastor can’t do any wrong.
“So sometimes last week, i wanted to pay my tithe of N40,000 and i mistakenly sent N400,000 to the church account.
“I called my boyfriend immediately and he said we will talk about it. when we saw later i told him and he said i should go to the church and talk to junior pastor. When i got to the church to see a junior pastor they started saying that it is God’s doing that 400k entered and i should leave the money with them that i will get blessings. I said i needed the money to my shop rent, buy some equipment.
“They gave me bad eye. i told my boyfriend, my boyfriend said i should be patient. He was already getting angry that i insulted the church.
“So i called my bank they said the church has to refund it that they can’t do it.The whole church workers has been avoiding me and giving me bad looks. Even my boyfriends mother and sister was not so nice to me when she see me. They make me feel like i stole or i am a thief. I am comfused. This is my money. i have bills to pay. business has been slow this year.I like my boyfriend.
“It is a two years relationship which may lead to marriage. I don’t have much money, i can’t give 400k i did not plan.The senior pastor is hard to see. I waited outside his office while other workers gave me eye daggers. when i saw him he said i should fill a form and it may take 2 weeks. 2 weeks? why 2 weeks? why is my own small 400k their issue.
“my boyfriend is behaving very funny and he doesn’t want to do anything. He hasn’t been calling me or sending me gist on whatsapp.
“Everyone keeps saying God has a plan for it. I am confused. My sister said i should get police, if i do that, my relationship is over and i can’t go back to this church again.
WHAT SHOULD I DO?
