Jesus Christ once said the rich should sell all they own and follow him and that it will be easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter heaven.
‘Men of God’ of today brag about how much wealth they have hoarded.
Rev Isaac Owusu Bempah, founder and leader of the Glorious Word and Power Ministry, claims that reports that he’s worth $1.5m is child’s play because he’s worth far more than that.
A list of rich pastors in Ghana that is circulating online values the preacher at $1.5m.
He called it child’s play and said if that was his true net worth he would quit his job.
“The other day I saw some list of rich Ghanaian pastors and I was 8th. They valued me at $1.5m. I laughed it off because the people thought I started just yesterday. What is $1.5m? I would have stopped [my ministry]. All the suffering I have endured just for $1.5? They should have rated me $5m. Even with that, I would have laughed it off. We don’t want to brag,” he said.
