Last week, the preacher released images of himself aboard a private jet owned by his colleague, Apostle Chika Onuzo, Senior Pastor of Atlanta’s Resurrection House for All Nations.
Bishop Erumaka asked why Nigerians had a problem with Men of God flying private jets when businesses and children of politicians do so, in a Facebook post on Tuesday, August 24.
Its a time to drive to the next location. There is a time to fly and a time to drive. The Gospel must be on wings or wheels and screens.. Jesus didn’t need these per the geographical scoop of his ministry to the lost sheep of Israel. Upon his death he now commissioned us to take the same gospel to the ends of the earth, by what means shall this be done? On horse backs? Even Paul used ships to other countries.
Men travel and drive throughout the world to conduct business, and that is not a problem, but when a preacher does the same, it causes many people problems. Why do so many people despise us? Our politicians’ children use private jets purchased with public funds to buy suya in Kano and take pictures, and our bloggers are fine with it.
Traditional rulers, keepers of our traditions, who don’t travel much for their jobs buy or are given planes and it’s not an issue, but when a preacher does, Egyptians who despise shepherds want to roast themselves in ink.
When a few blessed clergy, out of a larger number of those who are suffering, interlock highways, provide better food than the federal government, and give out thousands of free eye exams and reading spectacles, the news is buried, why do so many people despise us? Judas was the first to object to alabaster being poured on Jesus’ feet, writing on his blog, “What a waste, this should have been sold to feed the needy.”
However, Jesus responded, “The poor will always be with you.” Judas is still around today.
Finally, I’ll quote the Bible: “This message of the kingdom shall be disseminated abroad with prosperity.”
Stop and take your prescription if you can’t accept that the gospel now requires God’s revealed technology and the equipment of this era to grow.
