They are big denominations now. But they were built up by the sacrifice of many missionaries and early saints. In planning for the future, wise leaders planted trees, started schools and businesses to help with later operational costs.
But new, young, leaders have come in and seen the forests, and schools fees coming in and stripped it bear. They have done much like that son did in Luke – “Father I want my inheritance.” and then squandered it. Rather than taking the possession of their spiritual fathers and grandfathers and using them to grow more fruit and ways to sustain ministries, they have sold almost all of it.
They have left a school without ways to pay staff and build for future needs. They have not heard the voices of the congregations under them. But they have looked at what makes them look good on the outside. They have tried to please others and imitate what they see around them. But soon and very soon, they will be feeding pigs. Starving and struggling to survive, and then they may come back and mimic humility to ask for help.
But even if we celebrate the change in heart, the inheritance has been spent. God give us wisdom when they repent and try to rebuild after such a huge waste of resources.
