    The problem is with most of us believers, we believe anything that our men of God tell us.There was a case before our courts where a pastor was fondling young ladies katundu on pretex that he was exorcising vibanda. It is common today to find rich men of God due to contributions by various flock. Some of these men of God are In fact ” men of Gold”.
