Nigerian OAP, Micheal Effiong who works with KpoKpo FM in Delta State has just shared an interesing perspective on Povety and how Nigerian Pastors wrongfully use it to scare people.
See his post beow…
There is this preaching making waves among Nigerian pastors that “poverty is a sin”.
I don’t know where they got it from and I wonder why someone will climb the pulpit and make others feel inferior.
In as much as we love richest that doesn’t mean that those that are poor will make it to hell. Don’t scare the poor ones away from God with this satanic preaching.
If any preacher tell you that “poverty is a sin” tell him to show you where God said that in the Bible.
For God sake, not every one used by God in biblical times were rich. John the Baptist wasn’t a rich man. Elijah, Elisha and Joseph the carpenter weren’t described as being rich.
Serve God the right way and don’t put earthly riches in front.
