How many pastors scams can we count in recent years? The truth is that there are many, and all these scams rooted in the doctrine of prosperity, with superb phrases such as: “The more you give more blessings you will receive from God”, “God blesses the cheerful giver”, “you have to give to receive” , among many others. You will say: “Only a naive would believe that.” To some extent, only someone who has not removed his naivety with the Word of God can end up falling into such things.
The apostle Paul said:
Brethren, be not children in understanding: howbeit in malice be ye children, but in understanding be men.
1 Corinthians 14:20 (KJV)
The truth is that the only way not to fall for these scams is to discover what the Word of God says, since there are thousands and thousands that fall into these games of these money-loving men.
“For every thousand dollars you kill a giant”, this is the famous phrase with which a pastor urges its members to offer, with the excuse that with that money a stadium will be bought to have a mega church. Pastor Santana also said: “To more defeated giants, more divine square meters”. However, time has passed and these members have not seen the promise of their pastor’s stadium.
Seeing the passing of time and not seeing what was promised, the congregation has felt disappointed and many of its members ask that their money be returned, since many of them even killed two giants, which means they gave two thousand dollars.
Without a doubt, this case has gone to court, because of this shepherd’s big scam, although he still says it is not a scam, however, church members ask: If the stadium could not be bought, what did he do with the money?
Below we leave you a video where you can see some of the cases:
