please can anyone explain to me how our pastors earn so much money? i learn that they are not allowed to work, run or take part in the active running of any business whatsoever, u won't believe the stupendous wealth some of these pastors possess, can someone enlighten me on this, i hear the all tithe we pay all go to the pastor of the church, was told that this was the practice in the old testament, If it's true then some of these politicians na "smallies" where some of these pastors dey o! Hammer broses
while i I'm in no way against the payment of tithes or giving to God, i want to ask, When last did you go to church and the main topic of the sermon for the day was about giving to the poor amongst us? Why is helping the less privileged in the society not among our day to day rituals as Christians? instead What we hear is all about "giving to the work of God" , "first fruits" pay ur tithes and other forms OF PROPHETIC EXTORTION and Harassment through which the monies MUST find their way into the "church"
I'm not condemning giving in church, pls don't get me wrong. but i think we shld begin to emphasize giving to the poor around us. people are really suffering o! i went to the interior parts of kwara stares (baruten LGA) sometime ago and some parts of Niger and kogi states. Even u a job seeker for now will feel blessed when u see the plight of these people, Whereas we have pastors having more than 20 cars, customized plate numbers i even hear a man of God in Nigeria never uses a pen less than 100 000k.
How many of these pastors help to find palliatives for the unemployment in their churches? how many try to help the poor in their villages? i read a scriptural verseduring my devotion this morning and it says "HE WHO GIVETH TO THE POOR LENDETH TO HIS MAKER AND THAT WHICH HE HAS GIVEN WILL CERTAINLY BE GIVEN BACK TO HIM".
start from somewhere, smile to ppl, make ppl smile, give the little u have first, nothing is too small, life is in phases and stages, if u give a hundred naira today, one day u'll be able to give 1 million, look around, one aunty, one neighbour, a man on the street, Ur neighbor's security guard , they LL most appreciate and bless u which even be more potent than the blessings some of these pastors give.
have a nice day u all,
but do these pastors really earn such sums legit,
i go open church o!!!!!!!!! (joking)
