The Africa Report - - THE QUESTION -

Churches are big busi­ness in Africa. Be­hind the pas­tor­ing is crim­i­nal­ity. They are steal­ing from peo­ple through the church. No­body can blame them for that. The blame is squarely on the gov­ern­ment. Kings­ley Mkata Aphiri

I think they profit as much as they give spir­i­tu­ally to their con­gre­ga­tion. Let’s not for­get how much bur­den they carry. @nkun­de­cat

Are they re­ally pas­tors or steal­ing guys? Those guys are do­ing busi­ness over weak peo­ple who are just look­ing for jobs. @Pmaotela

Peo­ple with prob­lems trust God to re­solve them. This is where pas­tors ex­ploit peo­ple’s naivety, de­spair and ig­no­rance. @eyokana

It’s not so much an African is­sue, it’s pas­tors world­wide. Africans’ con­sump­tion of Chris­tian­ity is higher than other con­ti­nents. @Gach­enek

AB­SO­LUTELY! It’s only in Africa [that] churches are al­ways tak­ing and giv­ing noth­ing back, like ma­te­ri­ally car­ing for the poor. @ziza2b
