In the recently-published list, Bishop David Oyedepo, Pastor TB Joshua, Pastor Matthew Ashimolowo, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome, and Pastor Chris Okotie feature as numbers one, two, seven, eight and nine respectively. Nigeria's evangelical clergymen are both wealthy and highly influential.


Apart from owning churches where worshipers have to pay 10% of their earnings, most of them also own businesses, including universities and media outlets. Most of them also own one or several private jets and are behind the rising boom of the private aircraft industry in Nigeria.



Often criticised for his emphasis on material wealth, Bishop Oyedepo owns four private jets, with a fifth recently ordered and also has buildings all around the world, including London and the US. He owns two private universities and a publishing house but has hit back at his critics in the past, saying God made him wealthy.

Bishop Oyedepo said: "Our church is for all the people who believe that Jesus already paid for them to be rich and those who don’t believe start believing when they see it happen in a lot of people’s lives. We are not ashamed to be called the church of the rich because if they call your family poor, will you be excited?


"Even when a family is poor, they hate to be called poor. No man in his right mind enjoys being called poor and nobody truly wants to be poor, although people may pretend."


Several of these pastors have also claimed that they provide jobs through the various businesses, as their church buildings provide work for construction workers. They also claim to have helped a lot of people out of poverty.

  3. It takes money , lots of it to go around the world,run orphan homes, hospitals , hold Crusades, pay many to work for them ..Tv Programs , stations all needed to do their work. And yes they work hard in preparing all these things . Yes it takes a -lot of money and they should live in comfort. People gave Jesus money so much he had a treasurer to keep up with it.

  5. Matthew 19:25: say It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to get into heaven. I have mixed emotions about pastors. In the bible we are suppose to Having conferences and charges is wrong. There should not be an amount of money attached to teaching, sharing and spreading the word of God. All these pastor hold conference and charge. If they have a regular 9-5 and make this money no problem. But if the members of there congregations have no food, no shelter, no transportation, no lights , no gas etc. then there is something wrong. In Malachi 3: 10; God says bring all the tithes and offerings into the store house so that there may be meat in mine house. His house people not your house; this is to go towards taking care of the elderly and the community. Our problem is that the Pastor and those in leadership have conformed to the world and not the world to the church like God intended.

  6. i support each and every one of them. Some people are too stupid to own money and so, it is the job of these men to take the money away from the stupid before they do something to hurt themselves or others.

  8. But why do you call me 'Lord, Lord' and do not do the things which I say?
    --Jesus (Luke 6:46)

    Blessed are you poor,
    for yours is the Kingdom of God. . . . .
    But woe to you who are rich,
    for you have received your credit.
    --Jesus (Luke 6:24)

    It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God." (Matthew 19:25)

    Listen, my beloved brethren:
    Has not God chosen the poor of this world
    to be rich in faith and heirs of the kingdom
    which he promised to those who love him?
    But you have dishonored the poor man.
    Do not the rich oppress you
    and drag you into the courts?
    Do they not blaspheme
    that Noble Name by which you are called?
    (James 2:5-7)

    Come now, you rich, weep and howl
    for your miseries that are coming upon you!
    Your riches are corrupted,
    and your garments are moth-eaten.
    Your gold and silver are corroded,
    and their corrosion will be a witness against you and will eat your flesh like fire.
    You have heaped up treasure in the last days.
    Indeed the wages of the laborers who mowed your fields,
    which you kept back by fraud, cry out;
    and the cries of the reapers
    have reached the ears of the Lord of Sabaoth.
    You have lived on the earth in pleasure and luxury;
    you have fattened your hearts as in a day of slaughter.
    You have condemned,
    you have murdered the just;
    he does not resist you.
    (James 5:1-6)

    ...persons who are depraved in mind
    and bereft of the truth,
    imagining that godliness is a means of gain.
    There is great gain in godliness with contentment;
    for we brought nothing into the world,
    and we cannot take anything out of the world;
    but if we have food and clothing,
    with these we shall be content.
    But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation,
    into a snare, into many senseless and hurtful desires
    that plunge men into ruin and destruction.
    For the love of money is the root of all evil;
    it is through this craving
    that some have wandered away from the faith
    and pierced their hearts with many pangs.
    (1 Timothy 6:5-10)

  9. God's universe (ONE verse) is

    mind-driven-

    money has nothing to do with the understanding and application of advanced 4th-layer scriptural wisdom [lit white field; meaning error-free virgin realm] and the point for the existence of humanity on earth.

    That ignorance, also called

    "blasphemy of the (female) Holy (whole, complete, absolute) Spirit (BIG picture; Ruach)"-

    "Behold thy mother"- is the transgression that kills, no matter what they wear, no matter the dead redundancies they mutter, and no matter their heavy coffers filled with paper with the faces of DEAD hewn men (humans, dead torsi void of the limbs of spiritual understanding- Daniel 4:10 to 17); no matter what dead objects they carry around, while they keep 'honoring' and 'learning' from the dead and dying, and the worldly clergy 'leading' them into death..., being paid for their VAGUE sermons, even though wisdom is as precise as Math, and which are filled with No-wine and OLD-wine supposition, instead of coming out from their carnal kindergarten manger and growing NEW-wine brain connections and channels to finally be in the room in the inn as they had nearly 2,000 years to figure out the "heavenly" things at which Jesus Of Nazareth hinted.

  10. Abraham went to heaven a heavy rich man, God delights in the riches of his servants. All those who are saying a whole lit and quoting, after here you are going to beg a worldly man for job, for loan and the such, do you think this is what God likes, faithless generation. Shame.
