- A churchgoer frankly declared in a note that was dropped into a church offering box that he/she would not give a cent
- According to the unidentified churchgoer, he/she only has a Toyota while the pastor is a jet owner
- The rather funny note has further proven that some people are dissatisfied with the flamboyant lifestyles of many 'celebrity clerics'
A funny note was put inside a church offering box by a churchgoer who was dissatisfied with the fact that the pastor owns a jet.
According to the churchgoer, who refused to drop money into the offering box, the pastor has a jet already while he/she only has a Toyota.
The rather funny note was shared on Facebook and sighted by Briefly.co.za.
The note read:
"You have a jet already. I only have a Toyota. I no dey give you shishi."
Whoever wrote the note has spoken the minds of some Nigerian churchgoers who believe that it is better to keep their money or gift the less privileged instead of paying offerings and tithes in church.
The flamboyant lifestyle of many major pastors around the world is the reason for such a mindset.
Reacting to the funny note, a Facebook user identified as Sam Simon wrote:
"That is his personal opinion and no penalty for that."
In a recent report by Briefly.co.za about local pastor, Shepherd Bushiri, he and his wife Mary Bushiri are in high spirits about the news that self-proclaimed prophet Jay Israel had been arrested by the South African police for allegedly carrying fake passports.
Jay Israel, who is a Zimbabwean Church leader based in East London, had on various occasions warned people against Bushiri and his "false" prophecies under the guise that he wanted to "free the African child from being deceived".
"Now that Israel is facing trouble with the law, Bushiri has taken to Facebook to credit God for the downfall of those he calls his enemies, adding that God is not yet done dealing with those who have wished ill on his life.
"It is very unfortunate, however, to see that the same people that were declaring my downfall, pioneering campaigns to bring me down and spreading wicked lies about my wife and I, are now suffering the same fate they wished against me."
