If Jesus Was A Pastor In Nigeria How Many Cars Would He Have?

Buying private Jets, riding in the best of cars, living the life of an elite, these have become trade marks of pastors in Nigeria. Not that driving in good cars, living gorgeously is so wrong, but it begs the question of why Pastors have to be this wealthy.

Is this extraordinary wealth a blessing from God? Jesus most valuable item in the bible were the clothes he had on at his death. If money was to be a trade mark of men of God, surely Jesus would have be thye richest man ever in the history of man.

I suspect great hyppocrisy exists in the christain religious circles. I suspect that God may not really be backing these "men of God", that people are being duped every month for their tithes. If this is true, then its very possible that false prophets actually walk the land of Nigeria, leading people not to God but in the opposite direction.

If Jesus was a Pastor in Nigeria i have a strong feeling he would not own a very luxurious car, not to speak of a private Jet or Jets.

What do you think?

poster,

will be possible for you to lay down the rules and regulations that shld be guilding preachers and pastors.

i know u will be happy to see our pastors live in ghetos, move on okadas and dress on rags.

on my own, i don't care what they have but the most important thing what they do with what they have.

if the aircrafts they have will be used in spreading the gospel and reaching the needy among us, then let them go ahead and have whatever they can have.

Its also interesting that though churches and pastors churn out billions they don pay tax, yet the collect 10% of all incomes in their church. This is even higher than government tax,

I think false Prophets are here with us!

@ Jakumo: O boy, who you be? That was a tight answer o! Abi, pastor or one religious person don do you strong thing before? That was a brilliant answer.

This question about Jesus will continue to be asked. My own answer is that although pple often say that he rode on a horse, i dont think the horse belonged to him. His ministry did not acquire land and property, neither did he fraternise with the government, in fact, they HATED him. This is very much unlike what we see today, where General Overseers and Senior Pastors are the best friends of presidents, governors and ministers.

Without exception, Nigeria's most wealthy preachers and pastors are simply con-men and fraudsters who promise great wealth in the here-after in exchange for as much cash as their congregations can cough up in the here and now.  These predatory preachers grow fat and obscenely rich as they capitalize both on the desperation of the poor who pay through the nose for false hopes of better days in God's bosom, and on the vanity of the wealthy who seek heavenly approval by sharing some of the proceeds of their criminal enterprises with God's self-proclaimed messengers.

Within the so-called secular democracy to which Nigeria lays claim, these profiteers in clergy robes are given free rein to use FEDERAL highways as parking lots during their frequent God-fests, trapping ALL motorists in 5 to 12-hour gridlock traffic jams during which accidents and armed robbers claim human lives with regularity, all in the name of Jesus, the usual accomplice conveniently invoked by most of Nigeria's criminal class to rationalize their plunder and single-minded greed.

here is a political forum and not a religious forum.

Jesus if u are well informed rode on a horse which invariably was the most expensive means of transportation then so relate it to what is obtainable today.

if u lack topics to post here, tell me you local govt area, state or geopolitical zone so that i can guide u on political issues that are related to ur area.

on the other hand, u can post issues of topics of the moment, ribadu and obama.
