Pastors Are Not Scammers

25

> FatherOfJesus: 3. Their pastors are scammers. They want to be like Jesus but never want to live the humble life of Jesus as demostrated in the Bible. They are so worried about money and wealth damn! They cherrypick bible verse to favour their selfish quests and deceive their sheep into believing them. Finally there’s no reason to become a Christian, it’s a scam just like any other religion It seems a lot of people, be they Christians, other religionists, and atheists, tend to put Jesus on a pedestal and exempt him from the more deplorable aspects of the religion based on him. In my opinion these pastors are not doing anything different from their role model. The exploits of pastors that FatherofJesus would call scams can be found in the pages of the bible. A simple analysis of some of the miracles without the presumption of Jesus’ so called “divinity” would paint a picture of a modern day scammer, so these pastors are not doing anything that goes against Christianity. Let’s examine his first miracle in Mark 1:21-28 with some edits. T.B. Joshua Drives Out an Impure Spirit 21 They went to Ibadan, and when Sunday came, T.B. Joshua went into the church and began to teach. 22 The people were amazed at his teaching, because he taught them as one who had authority, not as a Man of God. 23 Just then a man in their church who was possessed by an impure spirit cried out, 24 “What do you want with us, T.B. Joshua of Egbe? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are—the Holy One of God!” 25 “Be quiet!” T.B. Joshua said sternly. “Come out of him!” 26 The impure spirit shook the man violently and came out of him with a shriek. 27 The people were all so amazed that they asked each other, “What is this? A new teaching—and with authority! He even gives orders to impure spirits and they obey him.” 28 News about him spread quickly over the whole region of Oyo. In my opinion, it should be obvious that the man “possessed by an impure spirit” is in cahoots with T.B. Joshua and this miracle is a theatrical performance. The only difference between T.B. Joshua’s scams and Jesus’ scams is that the latter are recorded in a book that’s supposed to be revered. Jesus Drives Out an Impure Spirit 21 They went to Capernaum, and when the Sabbath came, Jesus went into the synagogue and began to teach. 22 The people were amazed at his teaching, because he taught them as one who had authority, not as the teachers of the law. 23 Just then a man in their synagogue who was possessed by an impure spirit cried out, 24 “What do you want with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are—the Holy One of God!” 25 “Be quiet!” said Jesus sternly. “Come out of him!” 26 The impure spirit shook the man violently and came out of him with a shriek. 27 The people were all so amazed that they asked each other, “What is this? A new teaching—and with authority! He even gives orders to impure spirits and they obey him.” 28 News about him spread quickly over the whole region of Galilee
