Former presidential aide, Reno Omokri has lamented at how poor people are the ones feeding their pastors today, unlike in the time of Jesus who fed the poor. Taking to social media, Reno Omokri also touched on people enjoying Church entertainment at the expense of being enlightened.
“Sadly, many people are entertained in churches but they think they are being enlightened. It breaks my heart to say it, but it seems the lives being transformed are the preachers’. Jesus fed the poor, but many of today’s poor feed their preachers. How can pastors live in opulent luxury while congregants live in excruciating poverty? Shepherds exist to care for sheep, not to be cared for by sheep. Jesus gave one instruction to Peter, His successor: “feed My sheep”. He didn’t say ‘be fed by My sheep’! Feed them physically and spiritually.”
