Pastor charges congregation $10 for him to tell them if they are going to heaven

According to the Christian Post on Feb. 10, a Christian pastor in Kenya charges members of his congregation $10 each to tell them if they are listed in the Book of Life. In other words, they are willing to pay him to tell them if they will go to heaven.

The Book of Life is referred to six times in the Book of Revelation. Only those whose names are written in the Book of Life from the foundation of the world, and have not been blotted out by the Lamb, are saved at the Last Judgment; all others are doomed (Revelation 20:15).

This is most unfortunate because Kenya is among the 30 poorest countries in the world where more than 25 percent of the population live on less than $1 a day.

According to a report from The Nairobian, Bishop Thomas Wahome of Helicopter of Christ Church has followers who believe he is a prophet and has been granted special permission to see the pages of the Book of Life. That's why they turn to him to check to see if they are going to heaven.

This isn't the first time Wahome has used his position to make supernatural promises to his poverty-stricken followers.

Last year, the televangelist told his followers they could be healed from ailments by touching his clothes like the woman with the issue of blood in Mark 5:21-34. He told them, however, that a touch of his clothes would come at a cost of about $12.00.
