Nigerian Christian Ministers Hustling for Money

No comments

I recently saw a documentary about a group of Nigerian Christian ministers in Africa making money hand over fist because they were convincing people that the only way to become wealthy was to give their money away, and that wealth, in and of itself, was a sign that they were going to heaven.

Today, I read an excerpt from the book, “50 Things You’re Not Supposed To Know: Religion.” There were actually some incredibly funny points in the excerpt about how Christians justify their desire to make a lot of money. Who doesn’t want money?

We all want money. We all need money to survive. But in order for Christians to not feel guilty about it, they have to figure out a system in their minds to believe that God supports them in doing so. Over the years, the ministry of money has become big business because the marketplace is huge.

Who doesn’t want to hear that God wants them to make a lot of money? It immediately allows us to focus on making money as a way to be in alignment with God’s will.

The ministers in Africa in the documentary talked about hearing God’s voice. One of the ministers said that he surrounds himself with all of the material possessions that God has given him because it amplifies the power to hear God’s voice. This was actually a motivation for his parishioners to become rich, so that they could learn how to hear God’s voice for themselves.

The truth is, we don’t have to do a single thing in order to hear God’s voice. There is nothing that we have to achieve, accomplish, do, or think in order to hear God’s voice directly.

This is why we teach people how to hear God’s voice on our spiritual counseling hotline. They are calling into the hotline because they are hurting and need support. That is precisely the right time to help them learn how to hear God’s voice within them. They don’t have to be rich. They don’t have to have money. They just have to be willing.

In truth, that’s all it takes. If you are willing, God’s voice will be there.
