Uncategorized | January 19, 2019
According to The Pew Research Center’s latest study, an incredible 84% of the world’s population identifies as being religious. Only 16% identify themselves as atheists. With an estimated 4,200 religions to choose from worldwide, it’s no wonder so many of us ascribe to a belief in something greater than ourselves.
Astonishingly, salaries for clergy can mount up into millions of dollars per year. While church members often operate under the assumption that their leaders receive average wages and live modest lives, we have evidence that clearly proves the contrary to be true. However, it’s important to keep in mind, many of these men and women of the cloth operated businesses outside the church which made them independently wealthy. Buckle up for our list of the world’s richest religious leaders.
