A recent article posted in the Atlanta Black Star listed 8 pastors whose income is 200x greater than that of their congregants. Here is the link to the article: http://atlantablackstar.com/2014/06/26/8-black-pastors-whose-net-worth-is-200-times-greater-than-folks-in-their-local-community/ Among those listed are several Nigerian pastors whose combined wealth is over 100 million US dollars. The debate on how and how much pastors should be compensated is an age old one. The underlying question for Western Christianity is how much is too much for a pastor's compensation package and when do other items cross into excess? Should pastors/clergy have their own planes, luxury cars and homes, and other toys, or should their wealth reflect the communities they serve. Join Pastor Neal for this and other lively topics.
