Seeing the Headline “Mega-rich pastors living in million pound homes… ” has made me see the reason why the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ doesn’t seems to be effective again. It made me see reason why people are not interested in hearing the Good news of salvation again.
It is quite saddening that a media station in UK has analysed two Pastors in UK and exposed their luxurious and “dubious” lifestyle.
As reported by SUN, “Pastors Matthew Ashimolowo and Alex Omokudu live in sprawling seven-figure mansions while their huge congregations are told to hand over money often straight from their salaries”.
The Sun reported “We witnessed worshippers being told “God wants you to give all your money to him” and warned about showing “disobedience to God” before being handed direct debit forms.
One other surprising thing is still that, they are both Nigerians. Pastor Alex in his Service is been noted to say: “Give your money to God to get ahead of others… give your money to God to get ahead of others” repeats the pastor.
