A Nigerian doctor working in the United States has slammed Nigerian pastors, saying they are like internet fraudsters commonly called yahoo boys.
The man known as Dr. Stan said he and his wife stopped attending a particular church because the pastor and music director earn $80,000 and $70,000 respectively.
He decried what the church has become, particularly with regards to focus on material gains, which is far from what Jesus Christ intended it to be.
Stan who blamed Nigerian pastors for the current condition of the country, also said they are more corrupt than politicians.
He said; “My wife and I stopped attending a church a year ago because we think it’s wrong for a pastor and music director of a small church be making $80,000 and $70,000 This guys get their food, utilities, and house paid for by the church.
“This means they are in the top earners in America. This is not the design intended by Jesus. Nigeria is way way worse!! The church should be a place where people get lifted up, cared for, and looked after.
“Church is about community, care, love, and fellowship Jesus started his ministry with feeding the 5,000 If you are not going to church that has this pointers, my dear, your pastor is a yahoo boy!! The church building is the laptop and the members are the wifi connection.
“The degeneracy of the word “church” started with the Catholic Church, it turned the modern day pastors mad! Selfish and greedy. The Catholic Church is a place of all kinds of sacrifice. The altar to which the essence of Christianity died a physical and spiritual death. We have all missed the essence of the word “Church” In the Bible, “church” never refers to a building. It always refers to people.”
