Pastors, evangelists, prophets are balling now ehn. Things changed before I could say "l love Anuoluwapo." I was watching TV recently with a mommy. A pastor came on and she had no nice words for rich men of God. I understood her point but why should pastors be excluded from the good life? Why can't their children go to good schools? Why can't Pastor(Mrs) go on vacations? Was she created only to pray, fast and counsel? You can not dedicate that much time and energy to God's work yet you can hate on those who do. Jesus didn't die for that. Income belongs to the church and not the pastor. He should be paid a reasonable salary like any other worker.
However, my dear father in the Lord, if you have a fleet of cars, fly strictly first class, everything "tear rubber" and your members take keke home after church, there is a problem. Mother G.O. rocks the nicest baddest weaves yet her "children" make kojusoko, suku, wool and darling yaki. No, they don't feel they are holier, they are broke! You are close to a failure. What exactly is your joy? Yes, live a good but decent and modest life. What do you think Paul would have done in your shoes? Okay, how about Jesus?
There are pastors/evangelists who pray in commercial vehicles and at motor parks and ask for offerings. Like that's their means of livelihood. They don't pastor churches, they don't preach. They are not affiliated to any reasonable ministry. The money earned goes to their pockets. Service to their pockets not to God.
I also know that there are professional praise worship leaders, choir members and instrumentalists. They may not necessarily have a passion for God. They are interviewed and employed like they are applying for a job at any organisation. How about gospel artistes who stop half way through their "ministration" to praise a politician or whoever the rich person is? Man will eat abi? God dey!
It's all so funny to me how money motivates us to serve God. Perhaps I should keep my mouth shut now because it's not like I'm better. Thanks for reading my people. I have been busy. Hopefully we'll have loads of fun time to ourselves in a bit. Chinese food recipe? Come back bloghearts. Love you
