What a Paradox!!
Richest Churches in the world.
1- Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints- $40 Billion +
2- Catholic Church – $30 billion +
3- Church of England – $7.8 Billion +
4- Opus Dei – $ 2.8 Billion +
Now observe that there is no;
No Pentecostal church at all.
RICHEST PASTORS IN THE WORLD;
1 Bishop Oyedepo – $150 Million
2 Bishop TD Jakes – $147 Million
3 Pastor Chris Oyakhilome – $50 Million
4 Pastor Benny Hinn – $42 Million
5 Pastor Adeboye – $39 Million
6 Pastor Creflo Dollar – $27 Million (He used to be #1)
7 Pastor Kenneth Copeland – $25 Million
8 Evangelist Billy Graham – $25 Million
9 Prophet TB Joshua – $10 Million
10 Pastor Joseph Prince – $5 Million
Observe again that none of the 4 richest churches mentioned have their leaders on this list of the Richest Pastors.
The Pope is not there.
The Arch Bishop of Canterbury is not there.
The Bishop of Opus Dei is not there.
The Director of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is not there.
Now observe again.
6 out of the 10 Richest Pastors are blacks, with their congregation being predominantly black.
4 out of the 10 richest Pastors have their churches in Nigeria, the poverty capital of the world, the 147th most corrupt nation of the world, the home to the second deadliest terrorist group, the most unsafe place to give birth to in the world.
Observe as well that the Richest Churches are situated in
2- Vatican City

These are amongst the safest, less corrupt and most prosperous Nations.
What a Paradox!! Jesus Christ fed the multitude, but in Nigeria the multitude feed the Men of God and General Overseers.
