I know corruption when I see it

Matthew 19:24 Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.

It is not hard to understand the message. If you are a rich person, your values are in conflict with Christianity. It seems simple. 

A church run by a controversial multi-millionaire African preacher has been accused of ‘cynical exploitation’ after its British branch received £16.7 million in donations from followers who were told that God would give them riches in return.

Followers are ferried in double-decker shuttle buses to the church, handed slips inviting them to make debit card payments, and are even told obeying the ministry’s teachings will make them immune from illness.

Preacher David Oyedepo of the Winners Chapel movement is about as close to the authentic message of Christ as I am close to believing in God, which is not all...

It’s not hard to see a scam or a cult when looking in from the outside. I don’t see any difference between Pastor Oyedepo and Pastor Joel Olsteen. The only real difference is where they practice their hypocrisy.
