Is the church for the people or the people for the church

Is the church for the people or the people for the church?

Recent happenings regarding the issue of Christianity is giving one serious concern. In the past, all achievements of the church are tailored towards benefitting the congregation who contributed to the achievements. These days the congregation achieve a lot and these things are taken out of their reach and commercialized. How can we reconcile these injustices, noting that these people must have passed through lots of difficulty in contributing to the projects in the quest to attain salvation.

Most times salvation is weapon used in the modern times to milk the people dry. It is no longer strange that most preachers own fleets of private aeroplanes while the congregation wallow in abject poverty.

what could have gone wrong, are the preachers becoming morally bankrupt? Where did we start getting it wrong
