New Solomon’s Temple in Brazil puts status of Jesus in the shade

Huge replica planned for Sâo Paulo would be twice the height of the iconic statue of Jesus in Rio de Janeiro.

The idol of Jesus in Brazil will soon compete with a Brazilian copy of the Temple of Solomon.

One of the world’s largest and most controversial Pentecostal churches has been given permission to build a USD 200m replica of Solomon’s Temple in Brazil’s economic capital, São Paulo.

The 10,000 capacity “mega-church”, which is the brainchild of Brazil’s Universal Church of the Kingdom of God, will also house a replica of the Ark of the Covenant and be built according to “biblical orientations”.

According to the Estado de São Paulo newspaper, planning permission was granted this week and church officials say it should be completed in four years.

The church supports so-called “prosperity theology” – by which acts of faith including donations are rewarded with material wealth.
In 2009, São Paulo’s public prosecutor accused 10 senior members of the church, including Macedo, of siphoning off billions of dollars of donations to buy cars and property. Macedo, who denied the charges, owns a $45m private jet.

    My Comment: Sometimes I don’t understand how people can choose to follow something that clearly isn’t written in the Holy Bible. The bible is so precise, and filled with the love of God. Jesus did something so big for us by dying on the cross, and yet people refuse to look at that, and follow Satan and his lies instead.

    May God break Satan’s hold over Brazil’s Universal Church.

    God Bless.

  2. For people who received no answers @ the church. I think you really didn’t give it a chance. I mean God’s 1 day is 1000 years for us. Plus every time you prob. give an offering or a tide you were prob filled with doubt. for Jesus said to give with a happy heart not doubt. so you basically didn’t harvested anything because you didn’t planted with faith in Gods word. give n you shall receive. Yes, even if the guys a begger and uses the money that you gave for drugs. I have went for more then 2.5 years. I give offerings, tides, and sacrifices. I am now 25 years old happily married, I own my own home, and with every new job I receive $ 100 dollars a week more then the last job. I no longer have depression. So its faith in God that you have in the temple. the pastors come and go. If u do it for God, God will see it no matter where u are! 🙂

    1. Carla,

      Your Comment: I am now 25 years old happily married, I own my own home, and with every new job I receive $ 100 dollars a week more then the last job.

      My Comment: You praise God so he can give you things? Is that what you are saying? That is horrible and totally wrong. I am 34 years old, have been married for 12 years, and each day that passes by I pray to Christ, thanking him for the gift of salvation he’s given me. His Gift in itself is HUGE, and I expect nor will expect nothing in return.

      How can you give offerings, tides, sacrifices? expecting God to give you even more $$$ than your last job? If that’s not a prosperity gospel- a false gosple than I don’t know what is.

      I suggest you read the Word of God entirely, and stop following these “man made” rules, and lies.

      God Bless.

  3. This is being built for the glory of Macedo – not God.

    He is a greedy thief who robs the poor. He promises that if they give their money to God (to his so-called churches and temples) they will be blessed with health and wealth, which of course never happens. In the meantime he gets richer and richer and more greedy while the members of his congregation become poorer and poorer.

    Macedo is despicable. He is a thief. He lives in luxury and so do all his “bishops”.

    I used to attend one of his temples and every time I went to a service the pastors and bishop tried to manipulate, threaten and coerce money from the congregation.

    Carla you say you are 25 years and old happily married, you own your own home, and with every new job you receive $100 dollars a week more then the last job. So what? There are probably millions of other woman who are happily married, own their own homes get big salary increases and are not depressed. What’s special about you? You are just gullible and are making Macedo very rich. If I were you I wouldn’t put another foot inside his temple before something bad comes upon you (as it has to many others of his followers).

    1. No doubt who you are serving Anne!!!!! The temple is for Gods Glory.Bishop Macedo is a man of God.that is why everything he touches is blessed.you should read his book nothing to lose.you will find you have everything to gain.your negative words will not pull people from the church because people see the glory of God on the uckg.lives are transformed,people with sickness are healed.marriages are restored.people prosper.i have no doubt you are suffering.seek help while you can.
      God Bless You.

  4. Dear brethren,
    The biblical Solomon is one thing, the wordly Solomon another thing entirely. This one is a Masonic fingerprint. Many cults also use Solomon’s name and the story of Hiram Abif, his temple-builder, to support their religious frauds. In Brazil there are 2 of these cults, Santo Daime and Uniao do Vegetal, which are a syncretism between Amazon forest indian shamanism + Catholicism + New Age teachings, plus ayahuasca hallucinogenic beverages. They are a hit with the medium-class mistaken “seekers”. Katholic country = deceivableness of unrighteouness. Please pray for Brazil, Jesus is the only Truth,
    Antonio
