As we come to the end of the #ugblogweek I would like to write to pastors and the congregation. It’s not because today is a Sunday but I don’t want to cheat faith and Action.
Dear religious leaders, it’s not a business or saving corporation, you enter a church and wonder if you came to save money. Selfish people have opened up churches to earn a living. There are pastors who ask their congregation to pay for prayers. In some churches,they have “consultation fee” where you have to pay 200,000 to see the pastor face to face as if a hospital’s consultation fee.
Where in the bible did Jesus ever take money from his followers, the sick and heavy laden for prayers! Yes, we can’t be 100% right but can’t we try to live like Jesus lived. What went wrong? Am not holy and don’t want to appear as if am judging so help me God. Beloved”men of God” you have contributed to double standards people have one leg in the church and the other in the shrine because when you go to both places, they all ask for money to help you. Some preachers are more expensive than your daily expenditure.
Christians look and sound desperate. They are looking for religious leaders to prophecy unto them which these leaders take as an advantage. Why should you base your faith on a pastor. Get on your knees pray to God, everything will be fine. Not saying you can’t go to your pastor but can we stop looking so desperate. Where has your faith gone my friends…..!!??? Last time there was a scenario of a pastor spraying an insecticide unto the congregation. Seriously?……. Christians woke up. It is you who make these pastors start-up fake churches for money.
- I have a word for such pastors, Matthew 5:14-16 Salt and Light; “you are like salt for the whole human race. But if salt loses its saltiness, there is no way to make it salty again. It has become worthless, so it is thrown out and people trample on it. You are like light for the whole world. A city built on a hill cannot be hidden. No one lights a lamp and puts it under a bowl; instead he puts it on the lampstand. Where it gives light for everyone in the house. In the same way your light must shine before people, so that they will see the good things you do and praise your Father in heaven”
Therefore, be a good example.
