Why focus only on getting people to Heaven; when there are other intelligent ways to make people part with their hard earned money while reaching out to souls.
You may not know this, but God is good, especially if you’re a Nigerian pastor.
Not sure if you should venture into the church business? You’ll change your mind after reading this! Here are the 5 reasons why you start your church in Nigeria..
1. Churches are tax-free
Unlike businesses, you don’t pay tax. You can do 1st collection, 2nd collection, even 10th collection, plus all the seed of faiths, tithes and pay ZERO Kobo in tax. This frees up some cash, to make some much needed acquisitions – for the church – like sleek cars, jets, mighty structures etc..
2. You get to fly in style all over the world
You get to fly in style, and why shouldn’t you? You’re spreading the word of the God, winning more souls for the almighty and you should be rewarded for it… who cares about poor, if Jesus was alive today, he would’ve upgraded his donkey for for a private jet so as to make his life more comfortable and his work easier.
3. Recession equals good business
When everyone else is suffering, what do they do? Turn to God and pray for more blessings (psalm 50:15 “Then call on me when you are in trouble, and I will rescue you, and you will give me glory.”). This means more money for your church. Your congregation will willingly give more in collections, if it means an answer to their prayers.
4. It is very lucrative
Church business is one of the most lucrative business in Nigeria. – I know this, deep down you know this, even your pastor know this -.
And this is because of the poverty in the land… – Desperate situations open up people for desperate solutions and to solve their problems – people would do anything including give you their whole salary, house rent etc just so you can put them in your prayers… Read this Prosperity Gospel to understand how exactly you will go about the whole ish. i.e if you ever decide to start your own church.
5. It is the best platform for spreading your message
