Joshua Bamiloye, the son of Christian filmmaker, Mike Bamiloye, has given a reason why pastors deserve to be rich.

According to him, Jesus went through a lot and was poor so that his followers could be rich.

He shared on Twitter: “Jesus wasn’t rich, so why should you or your pastors be? You say? Just as Jesus died so I might live, carried my sins so I can be set freed, HE also became poor so We could be rich. Stop dat tin.”

@dbjclan wrote: “Jesus was poor so that I may be rich. Yes, even those who are poor monetarily in this world are rich if they have Jesus. Money is good, but the focus is spiritual wealth.”
