Zimbabwean Prophet Emmanuel Makandiwa says that there is nothing wrong with showing off riches as a testimony as long as one is going to show people how to acquire the wealth.

During an online church service, Makandiwa said that for a person to be influencial, he needs to show off what he has so that people are inspired and then listen to whatever he has to say.

He said that the problem however comes when a person shows off his wealth but fails to teach his followers how to acquire that much wealth.

Makandiwa said that the problem with most rich people is that they want to show off what they have but they never attach the knowledge of how to get to their level along with the testimony.

Makandiwa said that the reason he was saying this was not to provoke those who are showing off wealth and not teaching, but to protect the next generation from doing the wrong things.
