The cleric, who restated this in an interview published in The Sun on Thursday, September 5, said the problem the Christendom is facing is because few Christians read and understand the bible.

Legit.ng gathers that said it is unfortunate that pastors who own private jets have ignored the word of God in the scripture.

He said: "The poor cannot own a private jet, but the rich can. It is unfortunate that the affected pastors have ignored the word of God in 1 Timothy 6:7-10, which says, “For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it.

"But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that. Those who want to get rich fall into temptation and a trap and into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many grieves”.

Pastor Giwa said that pastors who own private jets have to sell them and use the proceeds to support the poor.

He said: "The biblical passage about the “Rich and the Kingdom of God” simply tells such pastors what to do. It will be extremely difficult for pastors who gather treasures on earth to make heaven."

According to him, the pastors do not only own private jets, but also own private institutions that the poor cannot afford.

The cleric said: "To set the record straight, it is not my opinion that the pastors gathering wealth won’t make heaven, but it is the word of God. These pastors do not only have private jets, but also have private institutions that the poor cannot afford."

When he was asked whether acquiring private jets would aid evangelism, Pastor Giwa said: "So, you are telling me that without private jets they cannot preach the word of God. The most effective evangelism is house-to-house, which Apostle Paul practised in Acts 20:20.
