Should Pastors Be Rich and Wealthy?

Christianity is no longer tagged as a religion for the poor as believers have now come to see the light in the scripture. In 2nd Cor 8: 9 For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sakes, He became poor so that you through His poverty might become rich. This is the affirmation that no believer should die poor but that’s a choice a lot of people have to make for themselves.

However, in this dispensation, believers have come to see the light and enjoy their inheritance here on earth. For a believer to die poor and not live in promises of wealth is an error. EX 23: 25And ye shall serve the Lord your God, and He shall bless thy bread and thy water, and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee.

Today, we have pastors and priests who are enjoying the Abrahamic heritage. Operating a multinational organization, driving expensive cars, flying first-class, owing to personal private jets, and building a multi-million cathedral of worship globally.
