Blind faith or Wilful blindness

Paul from Pukete

As Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern was putting Auckland into a snap lockdown on Saturday night, Destiny Church leaders Brian and Hannah Tamaki were packing their bags.The couple left the city for Rotorua, arriving around midnight, where they told a crowd gathered for the Sunday morning service they had escaped Auckland to avoid the level 3 lockdown.so headed to Rotorua they weren't prepared to be confined by the lockdown Tamaki went on to encourage members to do more than just tithe to the church.

“The thing about Brian and I the whole time is that we've always believed you never come to the house of the Lord empty-handed, even though you may do an AP [automatic payment].“One dollar coin, two dollar coin, bring something into the house of the Lord. Bring what you can, over and above, because really it's the offering where God commands the blessing.“The tithe is being obedient, so you bring 10 per cent. That belongs to God. And then you get to thrive on the 90 per cent.“And then if you go over and above and give a little bit more for an offering, that's where God commands the blessing. So it's up to you – you make the decision, you make the choice.”

Brian Tamaki, who describes himself as an apostle, explained his reasons for getting out of Auckland. “We're on lockdown three in Auckland, that means there's to be no business for seven days.
Freudian slip of the tongue there Brian your faith is a "business " great now that's out in the open and if you had the virus would you sneak away to get the vaccine or send a quick prayer to god but the vaccines free god may ask you for an offering Jacinda would gain much kudos if she made a example out you Hannah advises you are going to Invercargill your passing her house pop in for a blessing
