Read the full report below:
Religion is one of the largest and most profitable organizations in the world. Each year, billions (with a B) of dollars are spent on church renovations, advertising, religious paraphernalia and more!
Right before communion, a collection is passed around every Sunday at mass. This is supposed to be a part of Christian “charity” for the week. But with the amount that these pastors are making, we would be hesitant to believe they need any more charity to sustain their divine lifestyles.
Just how much are pastors really making? We found 10 of the richest pastors whose pay checks will shock your sox off!
10. Joseph Prince: $5 million
Joseph Prince was born to a Sikh priest and originally wasn’t on a religious path in life. Employed as an IT consultant, Joseph had a change of heart and committed his life to his religion. He joined the ministry and founded one of the largest churches in all of Asia: New Creation Church.
In a 2008 interview with the Sunday Times, Prince acknowledged that he was “well-paid,” but added that “money doesn’t have a hold on me,” denying accusations that his salary was $50,000 a month. However, Straits Times reported that the church paid one employee between $500,001 and $550,000 in its last financial year. While not confirming the identity of that specific employee, the church responded that its policy is to “recognize and reward key contributors to the church and Senior Pastor Prince is the main pillar of our church’s growth and revenue.”
