Unbelievable! After Winning 100 Million In Sports Gambling, Pastor Resigned And Closed The Church

A Ugandan pastor, David Ochieng has abandoned his ministerial work after hitting a 100 million through sports betting.

Local media reports that he won 100 million UGX (N21 million) and decided to shut down his church thereby leaving members in disbelief and confusion.

When he realised that he is now 100 million shillings richer, he closed down the building and left members of his congregation stranded when they came for midweek service.

Members of the church who visited the premises were shocked when they saw that the gate was locked.

The clergyman was contacted and he confessed that the reason he chose work in the vineyard of God was strictly to earn income to survive and not because he was called.

Ochieng further described the winning as a blessing from God and a swift way to get him out of poverty he was living in because he could not sustain himself with money from his poor congregation.

The truth is , Pastors who love money cannot fulfill their calling to be righteous managers of God’s money. No servant can serve two masters. A Christian can never serve God AND Money, but they must learn to serve God WITH money. 

Bishop Abioye will always say that God will only entrust true riches into the hands of those he trust. Maybe God just want to test the kind of person this pastor is and believe me when I say that the sole called pastor has failed woefully.

God doesn’t need us to give him our money because he owns everything.
