  • Ministerial titles in Christian circle are more of ‘apoc.ryphal’. The stories being attributed to many pastors and ministers of God make one wonder if these people were truly in the service of the Lord.
    How come a pastor is found stealing, raping, involved in ritual practices and fraud and all sort of vices? There is hardly a day that you will not read such appalling story. They have made the titles to loose its baeuty and glory.
    Read the story below and use your discretion to picture what money has turned churches to.
