Richest Pastors Worldwide
nd all any genuine believer needs to do is view this world of division to
know that all believers through only words are of this world, rather than
those few being spiritually led and not of this world through faith with
obedience; therefore through being disassociated with worldly people and all
their religions have not been deceived by the god of this world - so speaks the
word in ways Christians don't believe; and reason is because no shepherds
feed their congregation full truth: so speaks scripture very clearly in ways
billions don’t believe; and it’s because the father of lies is the god of this world
through psychological mind control so billions love their money sucking
lying greedy preachers being as very qualified salesmen for selling their lies
that all gladly pay for.

I tried to post a link from Forbes Magazine, the highest authority in these matters,
which lists the five richest Nigerian pastors, and the Nigerian pastors in the list
above appear in that list, correct with the figures. Nothing fake about this list I'm
Andy not gullible 2 years ago
And Forbes is supposed to have some infallible revelation from above? You don't
think they have an (hell-sponsored) agenda? If you had as much faith in scripture
as you have in Forbes, you would be just as prosperous as these men
not gullible Andy 2 years ago
I just went back and re read the above article again, nowhere does it state that it's
against these rich pastors. But you attacked the veracity of its contents, imploring
people not to believe this article. I then checked the comments section of another
article on this website, which is speaking against pastors who preach about wealth
only, and guess what, your name is all over there too. And just like what you're
doing here, you're attacking the writer, in defense of preachers who preach the
gospel of wealth. It leads me to conclude that either you stand to benefit from these
falsehoods, or you're a very gullible individual, to the point of being almost, if not
already, an idiot. Since I don't know you I will leave it at that, you belong to one of
the two groups.
Andy not gullible 2 years ago
Idiot? It takes one to recognize one. Where did I say this article is "against these
rich pastors"? I said this is a fake list - that's different from saying the writer is
Is there any reason I should not comment on as many articles as I so desire? When
did you become the pot dictator over how many articles I am allowed to respond
to? You are a fascist - know what that is? Google it.
You don't tell me what to do and where to comment or how many times. I do what
I want. It turns out that the real idiot with egg on his face is you, Mr/Mrs Power-
hungry Dictator
not gullible Andy 2 years ago
I politely gave you two options, that you either gain from these falsehoods or
you're an idiot. That you chose to rail against the latter probably suggests which
you are of these two. And your ramblings about what I'm trying to tell you what to
do (which I clearly didn't, I only drew a conclusion from what I saw - far from
dictating to anyone) and accusing me of being a dictator shows the lack of
substance in what you're saying, and anyone resorting to name calling is a sign
they've lost the argument. I can also draw another conclusion from your struggle
with grammar; referring to me as bro, then in the third person, before finally saying
"on his face is you, Mr/Mrs..." What I make of that I'll keep to myself. Egg on my
face? Do you even know what that means or where to use that phrase
Andy not gullible 2 years ago
". . . and guess what, your name is all over there too" (your words) is a not too
subtle attempt to be a tinpot dictator. Resorting to name-calling? you used the word
idiot, so that must be a sign you've lost the argument.
My mixing bro & Mrs in addressing you is not a struggle with grammar. Its a
symbolic pointer to how conflicted you're. Lastly, egg on your face means you are
looking and sounding like a big idiot.

Poor Andy is lost & confused. someone please help this poor fellow. You find it
hard to accept the truth, even when the facts are right under your nose. I am quite
sure that Forbes have done a more thorough research on these pastors then your
quick google search. Your argument is baseless (i.e no facts or proof to
back it up just your puffed up opinion & ego).
People like you continue to defend theses so called ''anointed'' rich men simply
because you refuse to listen to the truth which is so clearly written and evident.
You will die in your ignorance. What a shame!!!!

@Window, look outside the window(?) of your little grass hut. Your faith in
Forbes comes as no surprise. After all it is produced in the West so it must be
gospel. You really are not raising any issues of substance so I will leave you alone
in peace to eat your munya and derere in your little grass hut. But remember to
look outside the "window" and get a little bit of sunshine
Window Andy 2 years ago
You are very ignorant young lad to think that living in a grass hut & eating derere
is an insult. These so called men of God have convinced you to believe that you are
rich beyond measure you sow your hard earned cash into their ministries, you sit
on hard benches while they sit on nice sofas. You kneel at their feet & worship
them singing their praises after they puff you up with an empty ''gospel''.
Meanwhile your family members go hungry while you feed the millionaires with
your love offerings. You call them 'papa' denying honour to your true Father in
heaven and your natural father God gave you.
Now you are shocked that after you invested all your cash your ''papa'' still doesn't
rank in the top ten. Keep investing young chap maybe next year you will see him
there, but one thing is for sure, you will never see your name there. LOL!!!!!!!!!!
If you will excuse me now, I must go and harvest my derere.
Vhuramuromo not gullible 2 years ago
So what if Andy's name is all over the internet? Why are you trying to control free
speech? You must be ZanuPF. You can control your wives and concubines (pfambi

not gullible Vhuramuromo 2 years ago
Posting under different names again I see. Just where did I suggest anyone isn't
free to say what they want to say? Mr editor, would you be kind enough to confirm
my suspicions, that this post and the one from that other individual referring to me
as a dictator did not come from the same IP address.
not gullible Vhuramuromo 2 years ago
If you could read and understand what it is you'd find I only drew a conclusion
from the behaviour I'm seeing from angel (sorry, andy), and how that could even
be viewed as an attempt to throttle freedom of speech is beyond me. Your resorting
to being verbally abusive says a lot about you, not me. Could you be Andy posting
under different name? Certainly a possibility, given the wild baseless accusations
and use of abusive language. The site moderators can do us all a favor and confirm
my suspicions that both your posts are most likely coming from the same address.
Vhuramuromo not gullible 2 years ago
There you go trying to tell everyone, including the moderator, what to do. They are
not on your payroll. Because I happen to agree with Andy, now you want them to
do a witchhunt. Im sure they have better things to do than be at your beck and call.
Now just shut it and buzz off.

Andy prosperity has nothing to do with your faith. that is why Jesus never owned
any recognisable asset. And he never promised us smooth lives but peace in the
midst of uncountable tribulations. If u consider Luke 10, our never gave any idea
of preaching making people rich. Consider verse 4 and u will notice that he forbade
them to carry any money and He caused them to live as destitutes. The creator
doesnt want us to suffer or not to have money, he just wants us to be able to
distinguish btwn true and false men of god ( so to speak)

they have commercial enterprises. TD jakes for eg makes Hollywood movies.
Angel has real estate properties in UK. Most of them have book and CDs running
into hundreds of thousands
not gullible Andy 2 years ago
I knew it, you were coming from angel's point of view. What came first, their
enterprises or the wealth? Angel confessed he was broke in the UK, only in 2011.
In the business world you don't just wake up being worth 60m unless you win the
lottery, or are involved in some money laundering scam or like. Anyway, your
defense of these guys, to the point of questioning Forbes, shows you're probably
sinking your hard earned dollars into these guys bank accounts in the hope you'll
be a millionaire too one day. As for me, I don't give a damn whether the figures
quoted are real or fake, coz not even one penny of that is mine. Saka
Andy not gullible 2 years ago
I also mentioned Jakes, but I see that its the mention of Angel that gets your
knickers tied up in a knot. Why man why? So according to you if a man was once
broke he can never be rich? Donald Trump declared bankruptcy more than twice
but he's a millionaire as we speak. How abt that my friend? Do you honestly think
Forbes has no demonic agenda? You have to be naïve. Yes I do give to churches
(not Angel's) and I am loaded right now. FYI I am living large bro!
not gullible Andy 2 years ago
What you say exposes what little you know about business, and doubt very much
you're loaded as you claim (unless of course you happen to be one of these false
preachers). I only commented on angel after YOU brought up his name while it's
not mentioned in the article above. So for you to then say I got into a twist over
that is baffling. I can't comment about these other guys because I don't know where
they were two years or so ago. But angel I know where he was, he said so himself.
So for a person to make such a huge financial leap is suspicious. Your comparison
of angel with Trump is laughable, if not deluded. Trump inherited his wealth from
his parents, who were established in real estate. And the bankruptcy was not
because he was down to zero, no sir. It was only tactical financial maneuvering by
an unscrupulous and morally corrupt business man to reduce his debts. His
businesses have filed for bankruptcies several times, but only in the capacity of his
bunisseses, and not in his personal capacity. Anyway, you go and research about
Trump, I'm not here to give you a lecture. Meanwhile, enjoy your wealth, just hope
it's not illgotten. As for me, when I go to bed at night I sleep well in the knowledge
I didn't steal anyone's money, nor do I worry about staying up all night trying to
counter people who comment against false preachers. It doesn't concern me.
Andy not gullible 2 years ago
Oh, I see - I can only be loaded if I am a preacher? How dumb is that? Everyone
who is wealthy that you know is a preacher? Angel was once broke but he came
back. What is so incredible about that? That happens all the time. Your pretense to
have inside knowledge about Trump is also fake. This guy was one time broke.
Period. But he came back.
If you weren't so concerned about countering my posts, you would be snoring in
bed right now wouldn't you? But no you are up trying to think of fresh ways to
counter my posts. Get a life
not gullible Andy 2 years ago
Angel was once broke and came back? Really? Do you know the meaning of
making a comeback? He was and always had been broke, before he 'struck gold'
two years ago. Oh my goodness, now you accuse me of pretending to have inside
knowledge about Trump. Again where did I say that? Stating the Obvious(well,
maybe not,as I can see you didn't know it), rather stating what's is public
knowledge doesn't constitute a claim to knowing someone or having any inside
information on them. I find your attempt to draw parallels between Trump and
Eubert Mudzanire mildly disturbing, it's not even funny or deluded as I initially
felt. The only similarity, if any, is the lack of moral fibre in both. Is it possible
you're mudzanire himself? With your staunch defense of him, your gloating to a
faceless stranger on the Internet about your perceived wealth(real or fake), your
usage of British phrases like 'get twisted in one's knickers', your attempts to.liken
him with Trump, leads me to think that is a possibility. Finally, I think it's a bit rich
of you to accuse me of staying up all night posting comments about your likes,
when your posts came later than mine, and also when it is you that has comments
all over this site, responding to everyone(while I've only been responding to you)
who dares suggest that these are fake prophets. That, to any sane human being,
looks like you're doing exactly what you are trying to accuse me of doing. Now if
ever there was a more appropriate opportunity to use the phrase it takes one to
