While Jesus fed the multitude, it is obvious that Churches and men of God are ironically feeding from the multitude, building stupendous wealth and amassing worldly things.
For example, the richest Churches in the world today are:
1- Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints- $67.0 billon
2- Catholic Church – $30 billion
3- Catholic Church Australia- $20.9 billion
4- Catholic Church Germany- $25.0 billion
5-Church of England $7.8 billion
6-Opus Dei (part of the Catholic Church) Italy- $2.8 billon
7- Church of Scientology- $2.0 billon
The above are not inclusive of …..
Synagogue and no Pentecostal church at all*.
Meanwhile, the richest Pastors in the world are:
1 Bishop Oyedepo – $150 Million
2 Bishop TD Jakes – $147 Million
3 Pastor Chris Oyakhilome – $50 Million
4 Pastor Benny Hinn – $42 Million
5 Pastor Adeboye – $39 Million
6 Pastor Creflo Dollar – $27 Million (He used to be #1)
7 Pastor Kenneth Copeland – $25 Million
8 Evangelist Billy Graham – $25 Million
9 Prophet TB Joshua – $10 Million
10 Pastor Joseph Prince – $5 Million
Again, none of the four richest churches mentioned have their leaders on this list of the Richest Pastors.
The Pope is not there.
The Arch Bishop of Canterbury is not there.
The Bishop of Opus Dei is not there.
The Director of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is not there.
Six out of the 10 Richest Pastors are blacks , with their congregation being predominantly black .
Four out of the 10 richest Pastors have their churches in Nigeria, the poverty capital of the world, the 147th most corrupt nation of the world, the home to the second deadliest terrorist group, the most unsafe place to give birth to in the world.
The Richest Churches are situated in
2- Vatican City
These are amongst the safest, less corrupt and most prosperous Nations.
What a Paradox!! Jesus Christ fed the multitude, but in Nigeria, the multitude feed the Men of God and General Overseers.
