Why Do Christians And Pastors/men Of God Disobey This Golden Rule Of Jesus ? by raphieMontella: 12:26pm On Aug 21, 2016
Matthew 6:19 Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also...

..

Notice that christians and pastors completely ignore Jesus..
Luke 14:33 Any of you who does not give up everything he has cannot be my disciple.
Jesus made a number of very clear statements about money and wealth in the Bible...here are more of them

Matthew 6:24 No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and Money
.
Matthew 19:21-24 Jesus answered, "If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me."

In the verse below Jesus clearly told his disciples and christians the odds of rich men entering into his kingdom(heaven) #IMPOSSIBLE
Then Jesus said to his disciples, "I tell you the truth, it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God."
..



In the verse below..Jesus totally speaks against what Pastors/Men of God today do..them pay so much attention on offerings first fruits seeds but to mention a few
why do they?
Are they enriching themselves or preparing people for heaven?..



Hebrews 13:5 Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, "Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.



These words of Jesus below strongly disagrees with what wee see in Pastors today...
They have fat bank accounts for themselves private jets etc


"Luke 9:23-25 Then he said to them all: "If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me will save it. What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, and yet lose or forfeit his very self?

Here The Bible which is the word of God/Jesus tells us what true christians and pastors should do

Acts 2:44-45 All the believers were together and had everything in common. Selling their possessions and goods, they gave to anyone as he had need.
The message is clear. If you want to follow Jesus and attain eternal life, you need to "sell your possessions and give to the poor." It is a very simple message, and easy to do...
But do christians and pastors practise these core teachings of jesus?
The fact that you are reading this page would indicate that you have not. In other words, you live a life at a level of wealth unimaginable in Jesus' time. Meanwhile, billions of people on the planet live in startling, abject poverty(particularly your continent)
..Why don't you sell everything and follow Jesus, as he requests in the Bible?
Or do you not want to enter into heaven?
In nigeria we have men of God/Pastors who have private jets,vast bank accounts,large nd countless houses even richer than pastors of other continents..
Are these Men of God really practising the Word of God they preach?
The answer is NO..
Are they preying on the ignorance of Nigerians and the world at large?
The answer is Yes...
These so called pastors are performing what i call a legal scam and it is a fraudulent activity..which needs to be stopped

The fact that these Men of God violate what is said in the word of God they preach is evidence that this God they preach about is only imaginary...
I came across a thread where Bill Gates who doesnt believe in jesus recently gave $1Millon to IDP's in Nigeria...
Most Pastors in Nigeria are worth more than that but would rather add it to their already vast bank accounts than to what Bill Gates do
The earlier christians begin to realise the truth...the better for nigeria,,africa and the world at large..
Christians have u sold all ur possessions to the poor?
If u havent then u serve an imaginary God or u will definitely not enter his glorious kingdom..

I think hell fire is designed specifically for African Christians becos most of them r so daft.

How can we be so religious and our churches filled with multitudes, yet not even up to 0.0000000001 percent of us practice what Jesus instructed?

How can a pastor swim in luxury in a third world country where millions of children (including his congregation) cannot feed up to 2 times a day?

How can we ve billionaire pastors in Nigeria and white men would b d ones vaccinating our kids against polio, feeding our displaced brethren in the NE and giving scholarships?Meanwhile most of our churches build schools that poor members ve no access to attend... What's d point?

Their "God obsession" is now legit. A being don't exist but y'all be losing sleep over him.

It may interest you that God also says in Ephesians 3: 20 Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think , according to the power that works in us ,

3 John 2: 2 Beloved , I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health , just as your soul prospers.

Genesis 39: 3 And his master saw that the Lord was with him and that the Lord made all He did to prosper in his hand.


Joshua 1: 8 This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth , but you shall meditate in it day and night , that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous , and then you will have good success.

Get well soon.

why are christians selfish in their prayers?
If i am sick..i am financially bouyant enough to fund my meds..so why pray for me?
Pray that ur god eliminates disease causing bacteria(even if na half) in areas where poverty acquired top status and children suffer and die from diseases he created because they cant afford meds..
P.s dont tell me spiritual sickness..
U wont make sense...

No one loses sleep over what doesnt exist. The atheists know this. Let them fight with their conscience.

Should the believing party also keep their beliefs to themselves on a section created for believers to share their beliefs among themselves?.

Its uneven, you dont invade a section where people are meant to share their beliefs and mock them, and then scream foul when they fight back.
This is a religion section.

Ok let me just stay here and reads comments.

Initially i thought the op is a Christian, we almost have the same line of thought, hence i was about to bookmark this page.

But i was disappointed anyway.

Abeg dont mind that atheist, he keeps screaming God doesn't. exist, yet he wont leave the matter alone. When he finds a need lay accusations, God exists, but aside from that, He doesn't exist. So, i helped him remember that God doesn't, he shd rest.

Oo God bless you. I get your point now.
Don't mind them, just the way the pharisees were following Jesus wherever he goes, there are so many place in the bible that can attest to that, yet they never believed him.

That's what these atheist are doing exactly on religion section.
Have you not wonder why they were always regular on religion section

However i do follow ur comments occationaly without you knowing it.

So why are referring to them as Christians? U said it urself they are practicing what Jesus Christ preached.

So what makes them Christians, is it so u can collective bash Christianity?
