One little boy was asked, "What would you like to be when you grow up?"
The little boy replied, "Prophet."
The parents felt proud of their son. He had chosen to be holly at such a tender age. However his sister wanted to know 'WHY' her little brother wanted to be a 'prophet' to which the innocent future prophet said, " I want people to be giving me money like our church Prophet Josh, I see many people give him money. Even mom and dad."
Pastors are now known for their lavish lifestyles while their church members wallow in poverty. They drive latest cars and live in mansions while service after service desperate congregates fork out the little they have seeking deliverance from their troubled lives. Recently there was a video of a Pastor who asked church members to drink his bath water for deliverance. Some people go as far as paying huge sums of money just to have the Pastor attend to them.
One Pastor in Ghana was not so lucky when angry church members attacked him after seeing him in a new 2018 Range Rover at the church premises. The church demanded back their tithes and offerings after the young pastor drove in style into the church yard. A video posted by one Facebook user Joseph Ikunna sparked lots of reactions with people being furious on how the so-called Pastors have destroyed what the church stands for. The Pastor's wife was also there trying to free her husband.
Often people who criticise these clergymen get condemned. Many women and girls have been sexually abused by church leaders but get victimised when they speak out. They get accused of trying to destroy the image of the church and also trying to extort money. As such many are suffering in silence. If the video is anything to go-by, then we might be heading into interesting times.
Below are some of the people's comments.
