Pastors, Cadillac, Lexus, Mercedes, Jets and Planes?
During this Christmas or Easter holiday season, I would like to remind the men or women of God, where Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior was born. He was born in a manger or in a barn where horses or cows slept. Also when Jesus Christ preached and taught the word of God he did it outside of the church. He didn't need or seek , some grand palace or church to get his point across. Nor did he seek money, fame or riches. The reason Jesus didn't seek money fame or riches, is because what he had in Heaven was beyond what any man or woman could conceive.( John 14:2 In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.) When I attend church it kind of baffles me when I drive up, all I see is Cadillac's, Lexus, Mercedes and Benz or when I hear of a certain Preacher asking his congregation for money to help him by a Airplane.
Someone tell me why, isn't there a collection plate taken up to help the poor or the needy ? Why won't they preach on the streets to stop all the senseless killing? Why is there even in church a gap between the rich and the poor or why do the poor sit in the back of the church and while the rich sit in the front? Why are many church members poor, while their Pastors or Priest are getting rich or filling their pockets? Why aren't our Pastors or Priest out there in the world healing or feeding Gods people, saving souls and helping the needy or the poor? Jesus did so why won't they follow his example? Haven't even they forgotten the real reason for preaching Gods word is to lead them to Gods only son Jesus Christ? What's up with those big old chairs laced in gold that I see or observe the Pastor or Priest sitting in every Sunday? Are they trying too make a statement sitting in big chairs trying to be Kings Or Queens when the real King resides in Heaven? Pastor's, Cadillac's , Lexus , Mercedes, Jets and Planes? Church is suppose to be the business of saving souls, not for saving for the next big church, Cadillac, Lexus or Mercedes Benz. Write in and tell me your feelings or views on this topic.
Have a great day,
