Tithes, offerings cannot buy private jet – Pastor Agboli | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper

3
Wife of the General Overseer of The Victorious Army Ministries International, Pastor (Mrs.) Blessing Agboli, has refuted popular belief that most church leaders with private jets acquired them with tithes and offering.
 

According to her, private jets are so expensive that it may take decades of saving tithes and offerings to buy them.

She stated this in Lagos yesterday while reacting to claims that church leaders were feeding fat on tithes and offering.

Agboli said: “Offerings cannot buy private jets. You cannot just park a jet without making a business out of it.

“Owning a private jet is not a sin and those who have them should never be apologetic.

“I don’t think offerings can buy jets. I don’t think pastors also should apologise for making and spending money.

“That we are pastors does not mean we should be poor.’’

She, however, welcomed criticisms against ministers of the gospel, noting they were becoming rather sporadic and acidic these days.


According to her: ‘’Critics help you to be careful and manage your excesses. When they criticise us, they help us a lot. Not all criticisms are bad.’’

  1. Hav u suddenly forgotten Jesus ' words to that rich man, pastor Mrs,' dat it wil be easier for a camel to enter into the kingdom of God than for a rich man to do same? That the rich man shud go and sell all his belongings and give them to the poor in order to becom one of his disciples cos Jesus knew that his riches and business empire would serve as distractions. And unlike Jesus who had no permanent home to put his head - he did not com to amass wealth for himself - even wen he had d very power to make himself rich. Or so caled pastor Mrs. are u sayin u knw more than our leader - Jesus Christ? Jst ask ursef how their wealth, private jets, xpensive schools built in the name of God - where no poor one have access, their affluence and demi - god life styles and many more - to mention but jst few improve or affect positively spiritual lives of ur congregants? Little wonder, the more churches, the more depravities! And i really dont blame u pastor Mrs, cos u also found ursef in d midst of plenty while ur congregants find it difficult to afford a bicycle! If u are not being biased, why not ask ur colleagues-including u ursef - to sell off their fleet of private Jets amidst this recession and giv the money to the needy, downtroddens and the motherless. An moreso live a christlike example and make ur so called Personal /family school businesses - built with congregants sweats and hardearned money-available /affordable for these afformention. Then pple wil belive u that u did not set up all these church buildings for th benefit o ur pockets and ur family. Do as Jesus rightly tod that rich man, and live by Jesus example, and not by traditions of men nowaday and vogues! 'Cos even if a man hav the whole world to himself, these wil not add a qubit or a day to his /her lifespan on Earth' said Jesus! And God is not impressed wit ur private jets and other mundane things of this world wit which u so caled men /women of God choose to impress and dintinct urselves as small-god among others - as if after death, marggots wil not feast on individual carcasses! Best wishes ma!
