Pastor’s House is Too Big?

An article in huffingtonpost.com states, “Elevation Church’s pastor Steve Furtick came under fire earlier this week for his multi-million dollar mansion, raising questions about his financial profits from the success of his church and subsequent book deals and speaking engagements.”

“In his comments, he thanked God for his blessings and described the big, beautiful house as a gift from God. The Charlotte Observer reports that he told his congregation, “It’s a big house, and it’s a beautiful house, and we thank God for it …. We understand everything we have comes from God.”

I don’t understand why people care about this. If this man has a big house it means he has to be stealing from the church? or doing something wrong. I think that’s wrong…for people to assume bad things about this pastor.
