Worldwide, many operate church as a lucrative business

Worldwide, many operate church as a lucrative business

Worldwide, on each working day, or Sundays, the Gospel preachers put on classic suits and with the Holy Bible, they urge the congregation to transfer a specific amount of money in the church for God’s work, with the assurance that they will receive blessings and protection from God.

However, you will be surprised to know the number of pastors who are now depending on bodyguards for protection because they are so rich that their wealth will attract intruders into their house or face the assassins’ bullet.

This sounds somehow impossible or like a fairy tale but it’s true some pastors around the globe, including Africa, are using bodyguards to protect them, instead of depending on God’s deliverance or protection, yet, they assure the congregation that: “with God all things are possible.”

The pastors who often called money ‘the seed,’ give assurance to the congregation that if they plant the seed, the whole amount will return to them, of course, multiplied, something like a kind of contribution to their faith, to their future.

Families are going through a difficult period, instead of being helped, pastors rob off all their money with biblical quotations, such as Ecclesiastes 11:1 - "Cast thy bread upon the waters: for thou shalt find it after many days.” 

Mothers sit in churches throughout Ghana, without work, they pray till dawn, asking for a breakthrough and miracles from God.

But in life, you can never progress if you are not productive, even the Bible says: “if you don't workyou don't eat,” so why should you waste your precious time praying for a miracle if you are inactive?

While the Saviour Jesus Christ and his apostles travel days, through the wilderness into villages, preaching the word of God, many of today’s pastors, some millionaires or billionaires, need s private jets to effectively preach the gospel.

In some of the pastors’ garage, were BMW, Bentley, Mercedes-Benz, Ferrari, Lamborghini, and other luxurious expensive cars. The congregations see all of them, including their bodyguards, yet, they give all their treasures and properties to these so-called men of God.

If God has given power to any pastor as a financial deliverer, why they don’t use that power to eliminate poverty but rather taking money from the desperate psychologically scarred victims of pain and suffering?

Just as too much religion has brought so much confusion, many of the pastors have now gone astray, teaching false doctrines and stealing from the poor.

1 John 2:6 reads: “Whoever says he abides in him ought to walk in the same way in which he walked,” and 1 Peter 2:21, also says that:For to this you have been called, because Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example, so that you might follow in his steps.”

Yet, careful observation can give you an insight into the demonic activities of many churches under false pastors. This is enough to know that such preachers have sold the souls of the congregation for the prosperity of the Gospel but their mind is tuned and weak to leave such churches.
