But Why Are Churches Not Paying Tax?

Today I saw this guy I went to high school with. While in high school he once told me he wanted to study Theology and be a pastor. I didn’t take him serious at the time because of the lifestyle he led ( womanizing this girl and womanizing that girl). Well, although he didn’t get a chance to study Theology, but today he leads one of the biggest churches in his area. He is married to this girl we both knew from high school as well.I’m startled by one thing though. The guy is a prophet and I don’t have issues with that, but his wife is a prophetess as well, now I have issues with that. My issue is centered around the following:

Why with the clergy when they get married their titles seem to pass down to their other halves? Is God anointed between the sheets or whether prophetic powers were sexually transmitted in that a prophet’s wife becomes a prophetess, a pastor’s wife becomes a pastor?

Speaking of which

In South Africa churches are classified under Section 21. This means that they are registered to provide services and do not intend to make profit.

Although they are not legally obligated but It also means that whatever profits or funds they may receive from donors, they have a patriotic duty to provide services to various “communities” such as children’s feeding schemes, AIDS orphans etc.

However they have been milking the poor dry and making millions of rands/dollars out of their troubled souls. They are gospelpreneurs, they own the best houses in and outside the country, driving the most expensive cars, and living extravagant lifestyles but still cajoling the poorest of the poor to seed even more.
Some of them own conglomerate companies which are registered under their section 21 churches. One does not need to enlist the services of an Economist to see that these so-called prophets are merely business people taking advantage of the poor and troubled souls and raking millions through their misery.

To believe them is nothing but a mischief. To let them go without being taxed is nothing but fraud and economic mischief.

Public Protector, please rescue us from these snakes!

  1. Nice one Mr Bobby, you kinda like enhanced the lil knowledge or theories I had about churches or religion at large. Which made me question my mum a lot for going to church or even taking the lil we have at home to church. Today she is the one who is crying that the pastor at church used the church’s savings for his on individual quest while I told her that churches are now businesses for some opportunists. Your article says a lot and I wish she can read it. Give thanks
