Nigerian born Pastor Sunday Adelaja has blamed widespread corruption in Nigeria to be caused by Nigerian churches and pastors.The founder of Embassy of God Church, Kiev, Ukraine, the largest Pentecostal church in Europe, in an interview faulted the wrong concepts that churches in Nigeria are promoting.
“A pastor could say that somebody would be a millionaire before the end of the year. Whereas we are in November or December and there are 500 people in that auditorium. All of them will shout amen!!! Yet Pastors don’t correct them saying that no, you would not become a millionaire before the end of the year even if you shout amen for the whole day.
“The only person that would become a millionaire is the person that has worked for it. The only person that would become a millionaire is the person that has at least signed a contract. When pastors don’t clarify that, everybody begins to believe that some miracles would happen.
