“He also said to His disciples: “There was a certain rich man who had a steward, and an accusation was brought to him that this man was wasting his goods. So he called him and said to him, ‘What is this I hear about you? Give an account of your stewardship, for you can no longer be a steward.’… Luke 16:1-4 NKJV.
Accountability is not an option for Christ followers; It is compulsory.
Many Christian leaders agreed that they needed to hold their respective followers accountable for their different actions.
But which of the leaders is bold enough to hold each other accountable, or who hold the leaders responsible for their various actions, especially when the outcome is destroying the lives of the children of God?
Did you say, God, Which of the gods?
Someone planted a church; said God instructed him or her to tell all the members to sow everything they have towards the church project for kingdom purpose that in return they will receive kingdom benefits.
However, the person squandered all the money that people sowed on his or her project in the name of God, and when few people with integrity raised an issue, you said you’re not accountable to anyone or any Church governing body.
Why did you involved God in the first place and not just do fundraising through your friends and family?
Also, why did you approved of the governing body, If you genuinely know that you’re not accountable to any Church governing body?
Do not be surprised if God looks away when the unbeliever’s governing body is leading you to jail when the time comes.
DID GOD SAY CHRISTIANS SHOULD NOT JUDGE?
THEN WHY WOULD HE ALLOW THE WORLDLY PEOPLE TO JUDGE HIS OWN?
A pastor that they said owns the “largest” Church in the world was Convicted of Embezzlement, and he was jailed.
This is not persecution it is called accountability.
How did God allow that kind of thing to happen to a “respectable man of God?”
Well, we all know that God is not unjust and trust me God will always call our attention to our negligences or sin, But we might decide to reject the “Nathan” in our lives.
WHY DO CHRISTIANS SO MUCH LOVE PRISON MINISTRY, WHEN THEIR ATTITUDES OF
“DO NOT JUDGE” IS WHAT LED MANY PEOPLE INTO THOSE PRISONS.
“Do not judge” Matthew. 7:1.
Did God mean that we should never judge others?
The scripture says it’s not the act of judging but the attitude with which we do it that God is most concerned about.
“For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged” Matthew 7:2. That is fare enough.
Apostle Paul told the Christians in Rome not to judge one another Romans 14:13.
However, the same Apostle Paul taught the Corinthians that they were to judge sinful believers and leave people outside the church to God 1 Cor. 5:12-13.
Apostle James said he who judges his brother speaks against the law James 4:11.
But the same Apostle James also noted that our judgments of others must be done with mercy James 2:12-13.
Brethren, you don’t need to be confused with spiritual things allow the Holy Spirit to lead you and guide you in all your ways.
LIBERALITY IS NOT SYNONYMOUS TO STUPIDITY
You don’t have to sell your entire family inheritance to contribute to the things of God.
Give according to your ability and the leading of the Holy Spirit and not hollow Bishops.
“Now, brethren, we wish to make known to you the grace of God which has been given in the churches of Macedonia, that in a great ordeal of affliction their abundance of joy and their deep poverty overflowed in the wealth of their liberality.
For I testify that according to their ability, and beyond their ability, they gave of their own accord, begging us with much urging for the favor of participation in the support of the saints, and this, not as we had expected, but they first gave themselves to the Lord and to us by the will of God.
So we urged Titus that as he had previously made a beginning, so he would also complete in you this gracious work as well… For this is not for the ease of others and for your affliction, but by way of equality— at this present time your abundance being a supply for their need, so that their abundance also may become a supply for your need, that there may be equality; as it is written, “He who gathered much did not have too much, and he who gathered little had no lack.” 2 Corinthians 2:8-15.
In conclusion, To the elders among you, I appeal as a fellow elder, a witness of Christ’s sufferings and one who also will share in the glory to be revealed: Be shepherds of God’s flock that is under your care, serving as overseers-not because you must, but because you are willing, as God wants you to be; not greedy for money, but eager to serve; not lording it over those entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock. And when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory that will never fade away. 1 Peter 5:1-4
Have A Wonderful Day.
