Those prophets are back, again

The Sunday Mail (Zimbabwe) - - COMMENT - The Scep­tic, Zim­babwe

EDITOR — Prophet Shep­herd Bushiri (pic­tured) says he is targeting two mil­lion souls?

If he is do­ing it for the ben­e­fit of the King­dom of God so that those souls might be saved and move on a righ­teous path, then that will be great.

The prob­lem we have these days is that these so-called prophets are not in­ter­ested in preach­ing the Gospel that sets peo­ple on the path to Heaven, but ser­mons that en­cour­age peo­ple to fork out their money to­wards the church.

He might be eye­ing a huge pay-out from the two mil­lion in­di­vid­u­als.

Imag­ine if he man­ages to con­vince just a mil­lion peo­ple to fol­low him and each was to pay a sin­gle dol­lar per ser­vice that would mean he will be earn­ing about $1 mil­lion ev­ery week. This on top of the con­gre­gants that al­ready sub­scribe to his church.

I have al­ways had doubts about many of these su­per-rich prophets. Maybe he is ac­tu­ally a true prophet of God, but if he is not and is just out to fleece peo­ple of their hard earned money, may the Lord God deal with him ac­cord­ingly.
