Think of a pastor and what come to mind is an animated sermon of the apocalypse, the unending call to give and the humble lives of these men and women who were called to serve live.
To say that that has changed drastically is an understatement. Take for instance Prophet Elvis Mbonye of Uganda.
The self-proclaimed Prophet sits in chairs of gold, smells of elegance from his taste for top of the range cars to high-end clothes.
It gets better, the prophet who is valued at 650 million Ugandan shillings, is chauffeured complete with chase cars and bodyguards. His chair at the altar envies that of Queen Elizabeth.
“I have seen God and I will be answerable to Him. I do not get into people’s faces; they come to me…I’m not a pastor that I should frequently be with the sheep. As a prophet I decree the final thing,” said Mbonye
