A funny note was put inside a church offering box by a churchgoer in Nigeria who was dissatisfied with the fact that the pastor has a jet.
According to the churchgoer who refused to drop money into the offering box, the pastor has a jet already while he or she only has a Toyota.
The rather funny note was shared on Facebook and sighted by YEN.com.gh
The note read:
"You have a jet already. I only have a Toyota. I no dey give you shishi."
Whoever wrote the note has spoken the minds of some Nigerian churchgoers who believe that it is better to keep their money or gift the less privileged instead of paying offerings and tithes in church.
The flamboyant lifestyle of pastors around the world is the reason for such a mindset.
Reacting to the funny note, a Facebook user identified as Sam Simon wrote:
"That is his personal opinion and no penalty for that."
In a previous report by YEN.com.gh, a pastor of the Living Faith Church also known as Winners Chapel, Pastor Afolabi Samuel, has been handed a 3-year jail sentence after being found guilty of stealing.
According to a report sighted by YEN.com.gh on Lindaikeji's blog, Pastor Afolabi Samuel stole $90,000 (GH₵532,000) and GH₵64,000 belonging to congregants of the church.
The accountant and the church’s treasurer were also put before Justice Mojisola Dada on two counts of conspiracy and stealing.
He was accused of conspiring with one Blessing Kolawole to divert the money for their personal use, in contravention of sections 278, 285 and 490 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State No. 11, 2011.
Defence counsel, Rotimi Ogunwuyi, pleaded with the court to be lenient as his client had changed his plea from 'not guilty' to 'guilty'.
