How A Wealthy Family Went Broke After Being Brainwashed In Church- Lady Narrates by BloggersNG: 12:34pm On May 08, 2018
A very sad story indeed, Facebook user Amy George has shared a bitter story of her a very rich family she knew, went totally broke, with Zero kobo after listening and brainwashed by their church, Without wasting much of your time, read her sad piece below!

''I’m not sharing this story to disparage the church nor any relationship but if you think otherwise, it’s irrelevant anyway…
Last week, my mum and I visited an old family friend whom I have known since childhood. I felt awkward or rather regretted ever obliging to such request (visiting them).

As I was growing up, I used to know this family to be well off, Tom tom (not his real name) was a wealthy businessman who made a fortune with a very simple business. They were one of those families that promised me some goodies after my tertiary education. Walking into their sitting room, what I saw saddened me.

There was No television, no curtain, everywhere was virtually empty! I felt bad thinking maybe the obvious (grace to grass) had happened. I sat down on the bench in the sitting room and a lot was going through my head. ‘Maybe Mr Tom tom had some setback ‘, ‘what if he was duped’? ‘Or he lost everything to the bank’. My mind turns to the random thoughts but that’s neither here nor there as my brain cells turn the pages of the past like a funeral dirge. I can’t help but wonder why Something felt like it was constantly missing. This was a family I looked up to. The son was my best during bible classes. The children had the best primary and secondary education. Like what happened?

Uncle and aunty changed to ‘Jesus must come’ kind of churches.

They were told to stop chasing wealth as it is vanity.
They were advised to share all they have acquired from the ‘vanity kingdom’ to the less privileged.
They were called to bring souls to church (I used that because we know what winning souls for Christ tastes like).

Uncle and aunty left their business (the vanity), shared what they made from the vanity kingdom to those vanity children that needs help.

Uncle and aunty stopped work, invested their time to winning souls and increasing the members.
These, they did for over 10years!!!
10years until they realised they are left with nothing!

How can you be brainwashed to tasting poverty.
The seven children were looking thin and tacky.
I saw my best boy, called his name- tears couldn’t stop flowing.

They lost everything – money, friends and family because they deserted from everyone. ‘Their’ church made them believe anyone who isn’t a member of their church is a sinner and cursed. And until they give their lives to Christ by attending the ‘jesus must come’ church, they must not associate.

It’s hard to believe. I read stories, I watch clips and never imagined I’d witness it in lifetime. It can’t be them.

They are educated, they were RICH! Super RICH! So how did this happen?

My mum asked my aforementioned best to come home with us so he could take ‘anything’ for dinner, Aunty shouted in igbo (I translate);

“Mama junior, don’t worry. God sees and he knows the best. Job suffered more than this.”

We got to the car, I asked my mum why we visited, because obviously- a part of them didn’t welcome us. She explained; “Her Husband called on phone few days ago and narrated their ordeal. He asked I come over, so I came with you.”

Uncle has seen the light, aunty is yet to see the reflection. Prior to our visit, the family only had 200naria okpa for the day. The church isn’t helping, the church isn’t paying the fees, the church advised you stop chasing vanity. You are bringing members to the church yet there’s no benefit to your family. It’s over 10years ma. My uncle is tired! Can’t you feel your husband?

Unlike my mum, I don’t want to believe it’s ignorance though we know the obvious. I’m here hoping God remembers such faith.
How would it happen when the couple are jobless and now phlegmatic about ‘chasing vanity’. Certainly, God might send a Good Samaritan to share his vanity with them. He works in a Mysterious way.

Oh I remember; Job indeed suffered more!

I’m waiting to update my version of the bible with their testimony;

Surly, The destiny changer knows the best.
Amen!

Hmm. I love her use of words and the way she applied it, but my dear, it is all a lie. People should stop forming stories to trend online, use your spare time to think of how to get legitimate money or better yourself, not trying to b famous for d wrong reasons.

Those telling me it's true, u can believe what u want to, how will a very comfortable person, just become extremely poor? Not even average? Think it through.

I stopped taking these Pastors seriously when my church opened a school and the secondary school fees cost 600k/year. When we asked why it was that expensive, they said that the church wanted to evangelise to the rich kids. Meanwhile, Bro. Titus has been paying his tithe and offerings consistently since 1979 and even gave towards the building of that school but his kids can't attend cos he can't afford it.

Jesus is coming soon, that's true.
When is he coming? No one knows, not even the Pastor.
And the Pastor is controlling you.

Read your Bible, pray live your life as if you're gonna die today, hustle as if you're gonna live forever, invest as if you're gonna be bankrupt next week, love your family as if your life depends on it.

It is good to be balanced in life. Avoid fanaticism and extremism at all cost. A's much as u don't pursue wealth at the expense of your faith. The bible advises us to work and he will bless the 'works' of our hands

negative Effect of belief systems

when you can't think for yourself, someone will definitely think for you. and when they do, don't blame them for whatever you end up becoming. you can't call a rat wicked for eating the fried fish an idiot kept next to a rat hole.

the church will continue to soar higher but
they will continue to know or taste poverty till they receive sense and retrace their steps.

vanity upon vanity but Solomon had so many hoes. vanity upon vanity but a church can have thousands of branches world wide, generate revenue through them and afford luxurious cars,planes and build more super mega churches to increase their wallet. lol thunder fire devil.
