Down Under we see things differently.
These goings on in Nigeria sound not too different from the current situation in Destiny Church, New Zealand, where the chief pastor (self-titled 'bishop') has just ordered a new $100,000 vehicle for an undisclosed purpose in his church.Mega churches unfortunately seem to have this sort of influence over their more conservative congregations. They call it 'prosperity Gospel' - where the main beneficiaries seem to be their pastors and preachers.
A T-shirt I wore for a season back last century said "work for the Lord, the pay isn't much but the retirement plan is out of this world."Which raises the question: if the pay is that much more, what does that tell us about the retirement plan?
