    Whether rich or poor, God’s true servants are cared for God. God’s work done God’s way can never lack God’s support.

  11. Otaka, Abel

    It is very much unfortunate that ”Christians” have made themselves judges of men of God forgetting what happened to Mariam despite the fact that Moses was actually in error. But who made you judge? The call to Christianity is not a call to poverty please. It is a call to giving Solution to human problem doubtless, that is Jesus but nonetheless, the only sermon that some people need to turn to Jesus is just a meeting of their immediate need. Brethren, we need money to further the course of the gospel. The only thing is that wait and depend on the Lord that giveth the power to make wealth. Christianity is not a call to poverty and stop being judges, remember Miriam.

      There’s a huge difference from living comfortably and living “excessively, over abundantly rich” They’ve made enough money to sustain themselves and their families for generations to come. Not to mention the fame, notoriety and legacy. They should give others a chance.

  13. Faley Samuel

    These people involved themselves in kingdom investment that is why they can never be poor. Can you pay the price? Please,stop quoting irrelevant scriptures. God is never short of resources to meet our needs. He promised to supply all our needs according to his riches in glory, not according to our poverty mentality.

    the riches of ds world is vanity wit God,but holiness with contentment is great GAIN.

  15. Pastor Tope Roberts

    Those who are rich in this world have received their consolation (Luke 6:24). A man’s life does not consist in the abundance of the things he possess (Luke 12:15).

    1. kolade

      Make ur own money and stop quoting scriptures that don’t relate…wat is ur own consolation…poverty???

    2. Revd Segun Osho

      It is possible to be poor and still go to hell as a Christian. I’m a pastor. I’ve seen where rich people put pastor under lock and key with their wealth. When a wicked rich man controls the finance of the church you pastor as an dependent pastor, you are in trouble. You won’t be able to preach and lead as you would want to. There is nothing in God’s ministers being rich as long as the source is genuine and focus on God and heaven maintained. Many of these pastors have suffered greatly before getting to that level.
