      I praise God for blessing his servants. However, this survey doesn't portray the whole truth about the subject matter. A man of God like Prophet J.B. Joshua who features in the tenth position here is in fact the richest of Pastors in the world. Here, he may be worth $15000 but he is, as a matter of fact, worth more than all the wealth of the other nine put together. The difference is found in his ''ministry of giving'' I hope that other preachers will emulate TB Joshua in sharing with the less privileged what they receive from God rather than piling up wealth for themselves here on earth.

      • Sylverline So-oriari March 20, 2016

        If you dont know what to say, you better be quite. Most of this pastors do things without announcing it to the public. Come to think of it, how many people have you helped? You just wakeup one morning and look for who to insult.

        • Jerome March 12, 2018

          Sylverline, You be quiet OK? I support Franco’s comment. TB Joshua is indeed richer than those pastors even if you sum all their wealth together. Even the bible says “give and it shall be added onto you” and most pastors in our day don’t emulate those words. They are more concerned about their pockets and the the well being of their family. Own private jets and expensive schools the poor can’t even attend. As a pastor you don’t have to announce to the public before the public knows that you are a good and a charitable man. Pastors of this generation need to go back to bible and study the life of each prophets, apostles and evangelists.

    • Darlinton Omeh September 14, 2014

      Mendi Franco, you may be right but $15 million is still a lot of wealth by all standards. What baffles me most is the source of these wealth by pastors who are not business executives?

    • chidera September 19, 2014

      Chai,how come these men of God made this kind of money.?

    • Dee November 3, 2014

      I have no respect for any pastor that has huge amount of monies like these. It's a true saying that Christianity has long become business. Non of these pastors perform any miracles, non of them make cripples work, non of them make blind men around the world see. What a corrupt planet we live really, and you wonder why people don't believe in religion any longer.

      I like all the money grabbing people listed above to tell me where and what part of the bible did Jesus himself get paid for all the wonderful works he had done.

      You all Disgust Me.

      Bcos their Father owns everthing…in heaven , on earth and everywhere in between

    • Chris December 16, 2014

      I agree. These are not pastors, but business people. What makes me cranky is that so many people blindly give money to them. They are the snake oil salesman of the church and prey on people's need to believe that they can be rich and 'blessed' by God. Let me ask you why these men in particular have the ear of God? They are just good marketers. If you are dumb enough to give money to them, then I guess you get what you deserve which is nothing. The only ones getting rich out if this is them. A better path to wealth is to get an education, gain experience and then go into business for yourself. Stop thinking that God is going to make you rich cause he ain't. Prosperity doctrine is the lazy person approach to richess based on false hope.

        the truth most be told, you are not a believer in christ Jesus.please read matthew 6:33 and seek some one to explain it to you in clear terms

        • Keith Kologey April 10, 2018

          First, who are you to say that someone is not a believer in Christ Jesus because they don’t agree with you or believe the same way you do. Perhaps someone needs to look in the mirror before judging other people(judge not lest ye be judged). Second, your truth IS ONLY YOUR TRUTH, not the rest of the world. Everyone is allowed to think and believe the way THEY CHOOSE, NOT YOU HARRISON OKOTIE. You should stop telling everyone else what they are and are not, and then take a look again at the bible you so arrogantly use to justify telling the rest of the world how bad they are and how good you are.

      • Winifred August 22, 2018

        Keith, we don’t serve a poor God. He owns all the riches in this world. Read Ephesians 2:7, Philippians 4:19

      I will be richer than them all in Jesus name amen

    • Adeyemi Omrez December 29, 2017

      some people say these are not men of God. why would you say that. i guess you are not a Christian that is why. do you know, or even care to know the price they have paid before arriving where they are? the bile says in psalm 34 vs 10 in the good news version that ‘even the lions go hungry for lack of food but those who obey the Lord lack nothing good’. when you serve and work with the creator of the universe, the one who owns everything, what is wealth before you?

    • Vogabi March 13, 2018

      it’s God’s doing that his servants should flourish in wealth so as to help the needy and keep the ministry moving.

    • Ilugbo O. Paul March 19, 2018

      they have not started because this is no way compared to where God is taking them. Thanks to you all for paying the price. I love you all

      The blessings of the Lord maketh a man rich

    • Samuel Samuel September 11, 2018

      it is good to know that all this men are rich but their worth is an error,you can’t quantify God’s worth cos they are blessed by God beyond all human imagination,we will never know their worth.

    • Gogo September 26, 2018

      All this is to fulfil the scripure,where peter asked christ that they have left all and followed him,what would they have then,and Jesus anwser and said that no that live his belongings and follow him that wil not have many more hundred fold this time.
