Founder of the Perez Chapel International, Bishop Charles Agyinasare, has refuted the assertion that the rich will find it much harder to enter heaven.

Bishop Agyinasare said poverty is not a ticket to heaven and called on Christians to seek to make their lives better.

The prominent preacher said this during the second service of church on Sunday, November 24, 2019.

He noted that a lot of times, the world wants Christians to believe that once you’re a Christian or if you’re a pastor, you should only be teaching the people about poverty.

Bishop Agyinasare said God never had ''as poor as a church rat'' as His concept.

''It’s important that, as Christians, we stop making people feel that because they are poor, they are holy. Being poor doesn’t make you holy, otherwise all the poor people we have in the third world would be holy, there’ll be no need to preach to them, they will go to heaven.''

The man of God also reiterated that being poor does not make you holy while stating that you can be poor and be a sinner just like you can be rich and also go to heaven.

Bishop Agyinasare explained that people often misquote the Bible by saying ''Money is the root of all evil''. He added that people often misinterpret 1 Timothy 6: 10.

Bishop Agyinasare further established that people usually take scriptures that says it will be difficult for a rich man to go to heaven than for a camel to go through the eye of a needle’ as another proof of their assertion.

''There are two kinds of people who can go to heaven: One of them is Lazarus, who was poor with sores around him [and] dogs licking his wounds; he went to heaven. And then there is Abraham, who also went to heaven and Abraham had silver and gold while he was here on earth. And if you ask me: ‘Among the two, who do I like to go to heaven like?’ I want to go like Abraham,'' Bishop Agyinasare said.

Meanwhile, Ghanaian international footballing professional, Asamoah Gyan aka ‘Baby Jet’, marked his 34th birthday on November 22, 2019.
