‘Bling Bling Pastors exploiting Zimbabwe’s poor,’ says Ezra Sibanda

Bling!Bling! Pastor

As a true Zimbabwean and concerned citizen l’m deeply worried at the rate companies are closing down in most cities and thousands of people losing their jobs. The company buildings have been taken over by churches which are mushrooming everyday. Every corner of Bulawayo City Centre there is a new church with “men of God”s booming and screaming voices calling Jesus’s name on daily basis.
Many unsuspecting and desperate people are exploited by some of these churches to part with their hard earned cash into believing they will receive blessings. They even go to the extent of telling people that the more they give, the more they will receive! One of the churches l visited today the pastor was head saying only those with envelopes with real cash should come forward and be prayed for.

The few who had cash were prayed for while the rest of the congregation appeared lost, manifesting signs of desperation wondering where will they get money to give to the “pastors” so that their heads can be touched and be prayed for by “men of God”. As far as lm concerned God is for everyone, the poor and the rich, so why should some of these pastors and churches practise discrimination against the poor?

Many professed Christians have the Bible and even study it, but the way they live their lives shows they do not respect it. There are church members and pastors who, on a daily basis, break God’s laws when they lie, cheat, steal, etc. I believe most of the large Christian denomination leadership has become infiltrated by the elite of Satan and much of the institutional church has fallen away from the true faith and have followed doctrines of men. Some have a different Jesus than the Jesus of scripture. Churches have of late become more of business ventures than spreading the word of God and help lost souls find happiness in the house of the Lord. We are seeing more than ever before the rise of ‘bling-bling’ men of God, young men who already qualify to be called ‘Reverend’ or ‘ father’ celebrities who go around with body-guards and motorcades. – See more at:
