SHOULD PASTORS BE FILTHY RICH?
Being a nigerian, i have noticed amongst our people the sudden awakening that being a true christian, one is not permitted to be financially challenged (broke) or have a serious illness, and therefore alot of pastors have now focused their attention on their new found ‘Revelation’, which by the way, i belive they have adopted from the americans, only, nigerians have taken it to another level, going from building empires to even schools that are not affordable by their own congregation. Is this the work of God?

Point blank: Prosperity teachers are thieves, and whoever believes them deserves whatever they get, as you are just as guilty as the preachers for seeking wealth rather than His kingdom.
God is not a lottery ticket, where in the scriptures does it say that you can multiply your money by putting it in the church. I know the scriptures that are used to support this ideas but guess what?… there is hardly anything in life, whether good or bad that man cannot find a scripture in the bible to support it, if he chooses to.
That book serves as an armour for the people of God and a stumbling block for those who are not.
Whoever is preaching and does not focus on the cross, is preaching a different gospel. Promising people wealth or telling people they cannot be broke because they are born-again is not gospel.
Now ask yourself, why would you prefer to believe otherwise?
