Rio de Janeiro Militia Made $3 Million Per Year
A Rio de Janeiro militia currently under investigation is said to have raised an average of $3 million per year through extortion and other illicit activities, an indication of the militias' ability to raise significant amounts of cash.
Police arrested 11 members of Rio de Janeiro militia the Liga da Justiça (Justice League) on December 6,according to Brazilian news outlet UOL.  The city police unit that investigates organized crime said that the militia made an average of $250,000 per month, mostly through the extortion of local community members (including security "taxes"), and providing other services such as the installation of illegal cable television. The militia is active in a western neighborhood, Campo Grande. 
One of the men arrested is a local pastor at a Pentecostal Church, accused of helping the militia handle their financial operations. According to the head of the police organized crime unit, the church essentially functioned as the militia's "loans and collection" office. The pastor was also known to endorse milita-backed political candidates from his pulpit.

InSight Crime Analysis

According to a 2012 study by the State University of Rio de Janeiro, the city's militias have changed their modus operandi over the past several years, becoming more clandestine and less affiliated with active duty or retired police personnel. The authors of the study, sociologists Ignacio Cano and Thais Duarte, say this transformation has come about because militias are losing legitimacy in the eyes of the public, and are frequently unable to convince politicians and citizens to give them support. This has limited their ability to operate openly in Rio de Janeiro and has reduced the economic and political power they once wielded. This influence reached its peak during 2006 and 2007, when a number of militia-backed political candidates were elected to public office, the study states. 
The investigation into the Liga da Justiça's dealings, however, paints a different picture. Despite operating in an allegedly more difficult environment, this militia was still able to pull in over $3 million in funds per year, through the same illicit practices traditionally associated with paramilitary organizations. The militia was also still able to garner public support from the local priest, a sign of their ability to continue establishing alliances with community leaders. 

Militias have operated in Rio de Janeiro for three decades and are closely linked with the city's police force. The vigilante groups initially formed to push criminal gangs and drug traffickers out of certain neighborhoods, but are now considered to be another criminal enterprise.
Cheating on his clients, overcharging his fees, lying under oath, imposing blackmail, stealing public funds in a fellow lawyer gang, paying and receiving heavy bribes, participating in double billing schemes, illicite bookeeping, laundering dirty money, unlawfully selling weapons, this is the everyday work of Igor Montarroyos de Sousa OAB/PE 20735 and his dirty crook lawyer friends from the OAB in Recife, PE.

Edir Macedo is 5-foot-6, slight, and 68 years old. He has a sparse crown of graying hair, and more than 5 million followers, whose donations over the last 36 years have made him a billionaire. In Brazil, where he was born and raised, he is a major national figure, the subject of dozens of criminal inquiries, and the owner of Rádio & Televisão Record, a media conglomerate that runs the country’s second-largest television network. He is known to most everyone by the title he created for himself: He is O Bispo—“The Bishop.” Macedo is the founder of the Universal Church of the Kingdom of God, a Pentecostal denomination specializing in prosperity theology, which links faith to financial success. He preaches twice a week, often in two different cities, and the sermons are fervently watched on church websites, his Facebook page, and the miniature TV sets that Brazilian taxi drivers like to keep on their dashboard. Now and then he holds outdoor events that draw crowds of half a million. In February he addressed 5,000 of his parishioners at one of his churches in Belo Horizonte, in southeastern Brazil. High overhead, a stained-glass cross lit by fluorescent bulbs took up most of the ceiling while a theater-size screen blew him up for the pews in the back. He paced back and forth on the stage, explaining the intersection of God and money. “Which is the largest country in the world, economically speaking? It’s America, the United States. Do you know why? Because way back—this is history, you can look it up on the Internet—the colonization was done by men who believed in the word of God. And they were tithers,” he said. “That’s why you see on the dollar bill: ‘In God we trust.’ ” 
In Macedo’s teaching, tithing, or giving 10 percent of your income to the church, is a mandate from God. Tithing was never part of Brazil’s Catholic tradition, and, for Macedo, that explains many of the country’s problems. In Belo Horizonte that day, he quoted Malachi, a favorite of prosperity theologians, pointing to 3:10, where the Lord promises to the faithful tither that He will “pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it.” A man of humble beginnings, Macedo offered his own success as proof. “Our culture is retrograde, a stingy culture, a culture with no view of the future,” he said. “Only you can change this situation. Tithing is you on God’s altar, just as Jesus was God’s tithe for humanity.” 
Silvio Luís Martins de Oliveira, a prosecutor in São Paulo, says that Macedo’s promise of riches amounts to fraud. In a 2009 case that is just now being tried, he accuses Macedo and three high-ranking church members of conspiracy, money laundering, and undeclared international cash transfers. “The preachers make use of the faith, desperation, or ambition of [their followers] to sell the idea that God and Jesus Christ only look upon those who contribute financially to the church,” Oliveira wrote in a criminal complaint. In his description, the Universal Church enriches its leaders far more than its faithful. 

Macedo is proud of his success, but turns questions about his wealth into questions of the spirit. He declined an in-person interview; in an e-mail, he writes: “From the point of view of my faith in Jesus Christ, I am the richest man in the world.” 
Whatever the semantics, he has prospered. The Bloomberg Billionaires Index estimates his wealth at $1.2 billion, entirely because of his ownership of Rádio & Televisão Record. The conglomerate’s namesake TV network produces standard commercial fare: telenovelas (sometimes Biblical), sex-infused reality shows, and journalism that dwells on grisly crimes. Record also runs a cable news channel, a handful of radio stations, three newspapers, a film-production company, and even a small bank, as well as cable and satellite units scattered around the world. 
Macedo purchased Record, then just a debt-ridden TV network, in 1989 for $45 million. The transaction led to an investigation by Brazil’s tax agency, which found that he’d used interest-free loans from the Universal Church to fund it, and fined him for failing to declare the loans as income. In his defense, Macedo said he’d bought Record on behalf of the church to create the country’s first evangelical TV network. The argument failed to convince tax inspectors and led prosecutors to file suit in 1997, seeking to strip Record’s broadcasting license on the grounds that Brazil’s constitution forbids religious institutions from owning radio or TV stations. In testimony for that case, Macedo acknowledged the loans, while changing tack to say that he had acquired Record for himself. The case dragged on for more than a decade until a federal judge, Leonel Ferreira, ruled in Macedo’s favor in 2011. In his decision, Ferreira wrote that the church’s transfer of cash to Macedo could imply that, far from being frontmen for the church, he and his deputies “control the church absolutely and use it for their own benefit.” But, he said, such speculation fell outside the limits of the case at hand. 
Record grossed $1.1 billion in 2011, a good chunk of which came from the Universal Church. The church buys up to six hours of airtime each day, almost always after midnight, when advertising sales are scarce; during Record’s more profitable hours, the church runs its sermons on other networks. Silas Malafaia, one of Brazil’s best-known televangelists (and the wealthy leader of a different Pentecostal denomination), says he used to buy time at the going market rate in the 1990s, until one day the network raised its price tenfold. “The church pays millions to Record, way more than the programming is worth, so that he can expand his TV network,” Malafaia says. “He uses a legal artifice for something unjust.” Neither party has disclosed how much their arrangement is worth today, but in 1999, Record’s then-chief executive officer, Demerval Gonçalves, told the Folha de S.Paulo newspaper that the church provided 15 percent of the company’s overall revenue. The church also pays Record’s publishing arm to print most of the 2.5 million copies of its weekly newspaper.  
Faith is sometimes so intoxicating that it can even fill the sick and suffering with the improbable hope that a 10-year-old will heal them with a simple touch. 
Such child healers in Brazil are only part of the growing chorus of self-anointed miracle workers. The explosive spiritual movement is 44 million followers strong. 
“Anyone can become a pastor,” Professor Eduardo Refkalefsky, who studies the business of churches in Brazil, told ABC News’ “Nightline.” “[Anyone] can open a church.” 
Evangelical Christianity is the fastest growing religion in Brazil, and some say it's threatening the Catholic Church’s historical dominance in the country. 
But with millions of souls and millions of donations at stake, critics say that many bogus merchants of faith are turning huge profits with false promises. 
Enterprising evangelical pastors benefit from a total lack of regulations, Refkalefsky said. Many pastors lure new worshipers with visions of prosperity and health, he added. 
To those in his church, Brazilian evangelical Pastor Arodo offers not only to exorcise inner demons or to counsel couples, but to provide chiropractic care and promises of wealth. 
When asked whether the Catholic Church can compete with his brand of Christianity, Arodo told “Nightline,” “Absolutely not, because… what I have is a gift from God. It’s not mine. It’s a gift from God.” 
At Arodo’s church, believers line up to offer donations, and in return he splashes them with his own special holy oil. 
“Don’t skimp on an act of God,” Arodo told his worshipers. “Stand up and come here with your money in hand.” 
“It’s a very informal business, because the money just [goes] directly from the wallet of the member to the wallet of the pastor of the church,” professor Refkalefsky said. “There’s no control of the money.” 
That has made salvation a booming business. “The number of churches [is] rising more than the number of the members,” Refkalefsky said. 
Nowhere is the growth more apparent than in Sao Goncalo, Brazil, which, by some estimates, has more churches per square mile than anywhere else in Latin America. 
Sao Goncalo’s most popular child healer is 10-year-old Alani Santos, who has been drawing believers to her father Adauto Santos’ church since she was 3. 
Alani has become a local celebrity, appearing on talk shows with her dad and even hosting an Internet radio show with listeners from around the globe. 
“I don’t feel any pressure from my family,” Alani told “Nightline.” “If I don’t feel like doing it, they let me. And I like doing it, so I’m never going to stop.” 
Croatian Daniel Nesak, who said he was shot in the head during a war, leaving the left side of his body partially paralyzed, underwent years of painful operations and therapy. Desperate for a miracle, he traveled halfway across the world to Alani’s church. 
After experiencing her healing touch, Nesak attempted to grip a microphone stand with his paralyzed hand to test the miracle, but he was unable to do so. “It didn’t change physically much, maybe next time,” Nesak told “Nightline” immediately after the exchange. 
Although many are cured instantly, Pastor Santos said, others experience gradual results. 
“People that don’t know this, people who’ve never seen this … they don’t know it, so it’s easier to criticize,” Santos told “Nightline.” “It’s easier for the person to believe a lie than the truth, you know?” 
Nesak is still holding out hope for a full recovery.

The word of God is clear in regard to religion, "The form of worship that is clean and undefiled from the standpoint of our God and Father is this: to look after orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself without spot from the world. "(James 1:27), that the New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures, and the translation of the King James have," Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself unspotted from the world. " (James 1:27). So why have an article in Forbes magazine recently published appearing where the five richest pastors in Brazil with fortunes estimated at millions and even billions of dollars. This is substantiated by a theology that has reached thousands of fans in the country, the famous "Prosperity Theology". But why be writing this article is to give a testimony of indignation and warn the population that should follow but our true leader, Jesus Christ, who was rich became poor and died for us on the cross, not the false prophets that enriched at the expense of the poor people, and encourage everyone to read the Bible not to be fooled by these people. 
A little while ago I was a member of the International Church of the Grace of God (IIGD) and was tired of many things wrong that route being practiced by some of their leaders, as the example of a pastor who went to church hat on his head, what should not be done according to the Scriptures, "For man should not have his head covered, since it is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of man." (1 Corinthians 11:7), the fact that church we attended for years show the same infrastructure problems, old plastic chairs, not to mention that actually did not look good a church, but he had the look of a room rented commercial. Will the Mission with his fortune of $ 150 million can not buy a church for us? From what I know the Churches Adventists, Jehovah's Witnesses, The Catholic Church and many other churches have their own, because we with what we pay in tithes, offerings and sponsorships for a person who earns R $ 1,000.00 can get at a cost of R $ 230.00 (depending on how much you pay bid month and considering that the missionary asks about R $ 100.00 to sponsors) per month on average, have to attend sheds, commercial offices, agencies Oldest Bank, among others. As far as I know, the Halls of Jehovah's Witnesses are built with money and effort of the members and leaders, it does not need to exploit anyone. The same positive example we see in the Christian Congregation Church of Brazil, like the Jehovah's Witness with an effort of its own members and leaders build their churches and halls. Therefore, where it is being used the people's money? Another discrepancy is related to biblical teaching, as I know, the Adventist church gives its members the Bible study by Sabbath School, Assembly of God Church conducts Sunday school, the Jehovah's Witnesses have done studies where the person needs in their homes, workplace ... But the common thread among them all is that the study does not charge, but the International Church of the Grace of God Bible study charges for "Tickle", a value of $ 50.00, with discounts for those who want to be a worker. Anyway, the collection for study by the average amount charged above gives us R $ 280.00 for those who receive an average $ 1,000.00 per month, but that's not all. 
Recently, I was worried, as my wife, with the bureaucracy and the difficulty we had in relation to buying a home and our finances. I went to church to receive a word of comfort and what I heard was that the pastor of the Bridge IIGD Imaruim, Palhoça: - If you want to improve life, you should do an undergraduate degree, a specialization, a master's degree, a doctorate, ... But the Bible says the following: 
"Keep on, then, seeking first the kingdom and His righteousness, and all these [other] things will be added. 34 So never be anxious about the next day, because the next day will have its own anxieties. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof. "(Matheus - 6:33-34), so I thought to myself," ... good! is not exactly what I'm doing! studying at one of the best institutions of the country, the UFSC (Federal University of Santa Catarina), in addition to working as a programmer for a technology company, but this saved me from operating a corrupt financial system where the worker to finance a home paid for three and a half gets home. How to study mathematics at university, I'm still trying to solve this calculation, but without success, (1 X 3 = ½), of course this is my ironic. That was the day out of the church because I did not agree with a pastor who instead of preaching what was written in the Bible, preached the opposite. 
What happens is that evangelical churches today take money from poor people and well wishers to get rich and preach lies and not the true word of God. As a person who tells a child of God can have a fortune worth billions and see the little Jesus starving and not give money to the poor? This is not what the word says in James 1:27, as previously? What about those who say they are apostles, but preach with a cowboy hat on his head reminding us that millionaires bought two farms with the people's money? 
We must remember to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ does not mean to be religious, nor agree with everything he says without a pastor critically evaluate according to what the word says, but loving God, Jehovah above all things and your neighbor as He loved us. Finally, there is a rule that I learned from the mouth of a brother (which is not something very right in believing) that a member of the International Church of the Grace of God to unlink the church and not be expelled must go to the pastor of his church and ask the blessing to retire, if this is true I want you to know that I will not do this because I do not recognize the authority of the pastor or any other religious leader, but only Jehovah, God the Father and Jesus Christ our sir. Why I say that is that I'm abandoning IIGD they do not give a teaching according to the word of God, but continue following Jesus, reading the Bible and practicing the word that is what really matters to me and the real Christians.

How the Unified Church Can Respond to Global Corruption: A Call which Will Impact Millions

Life for a person living below the poverty line is short. This is the terrible conclusion one can reach by looking at indicators concerning human development.1 To many evangelists, this might produce a sense of powerlessness. People are starving, suffering and dying everyday. Misery has been among us for a long time2,and despite the efforts to diminish the vacuum between rich and poor by many organizations, the problem seems to grow larger each day. The causes of this are many: natural disasters, unjust international commercial laws, a history of political dependence and more. This article intends to help educate Christians on how to aid those under the poverty level to live longer and have a greater chance to hear the gospel.
There is one cause of poverty that seems to be present in all countries: corruption. Historically, corruption was not seen as a major international problem; however, in the last twenty years, important studies have detailed the impact corruption has on society. It devastates both the economy and the political system of a country. One major hypothesis in recent studies refers to the level of democracy and the perception of corruption in a given country. Corruption increases in large bureaucracies where state control is a strong tool for governmental perpetuation.
The major problem concerning corruption is the deviation of important financial resources. Those in politics and business take money meant for special projects such as those designed to fight misery. Millions of people depend on money sent by aid agencies; however, much of what is sent is stolen. Each year one trillion dollars is taken by corrupt individuals.3 Even in a case where a high rate of corruption goes with strong economic growth, the problem is considerable because the economy can take only so much deviation before going into a reverse process which will provoke profound economic recession.4
Corruption is also tied with terrorism. Often, some of the money taken is sent to feed terrorist actions. Drug dealers and weapon smugglers are all beneficiaries of a system that takes away what was sent for the poor.
The Church has tried for quite some time to tackle poverty and misery while evangelizing. Frustration often overwhelms missionaries who see children dying prematurely. They lift their fists to heaven and cry out for justice. The Church’s commitment to evangelism is seen through the worldwide Lausanne movement in bringing churches together to accomplish this difficult task. However, it is also time for serious reflection on the Church’s position concerning corruption and its effects on world evangelization. The world is moving towards a historical moment when the United Nations Convention Against Corruption is about to enter in force. Other organizations have already been addressing these issues: Organization of American States (OAS), Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) and the Council of Europe. The Church must now also make a more focused stand against corruption. We can start by studying the book of Acts. This will lead us to change our view of the world, which will lead us to change our attitude in the world. This will result in us changing the world.
Acts: A Biblical Witness to Transformation
The disciples had been commissioned to evangelize the world; but they were shut up in the upper room for fear of what would happen to them (Acts 9). They looked upon the world as an instrument of destruction. Both the Jews and the Romans were a threat. The Holy Spirit came upon them and they began to see the world differently. Killers and assassins that they had been afraid of became people who needed the message of salvation. The disciples were the only ones who could deliver it. Once their vision of the world was changed, they could change their attitude as well. Fear gave way to boldness and anger was overcome by love. They were changed men. This paradigm shift brought about the most impressive change in world history. We need this shift again today.
According to Luke, the spread of the gospel had to do with a break in the status quo. Christians had to stop obeying the rules of men and start adopting the rule of God, even when it brought suffering. This is exemplified in the courage shown by Peter and John before authorities (4:19); how the first Christians cared for the poor (4:32-35); and in the error of Ananias and Saphire (5:1-11). In 8:14-24, Simon, who was once a sorcerer, came to faith. However, he had not been changed from within and soon erred. The answer he received should be the Christian answer when tempted to corruption: “May your money perish with you, because you thought you could buy the gift of God with money” (8:20).
God was changing how they saw the world in order to change their attitude in the world. In Acts 10:9-16 Peter learns about the salvation of the Gentiles. It is a testimony that conversion is always followed by transformation.
Acts depicts many other passages that show that when one embraces the faith, God will require a change only accomplished through the power of the Holy Spirit. This change will only occur when an individual seeks it. Failure to see this change might reveal a “heart not right before God” (8:21). The solution is “repentance and prayer” (8:22).
Latin America and Beyond: How to Fight Corruption
The unifying call to fight corruption will have a great impact on world economies. All Christians should avoid engaging in any activity that could be called corrupt. It might mean paying a price; however, the call stands. Let us be poor, but honest. Let our treasure be in the heavenly realms. We will make a real difference in the world when, united as one, we abdicate corrupt practices. The grim reality is that when we look at the one billion plus Catholics and protestants in the world today, we must face the fact that corruption exists in the Church as well.
Latin America is one of the regions in the world where corruption exists. United Nations General Secretary Kofi Annan recently affirmed that fighting poverty in Latin America will only be successful when governments manage to curb corruption.5 According to Transparency International (TI), most Latin American countries appear with rates below 5.0.6; Many of these countries, which are striken with poverty, have a high population of both Catholics and protestants.
However, one might say that although this may be true of Latin American countries, it is not true of the global situation. A quick look at developed countries shows differently.7 For some time, mostly protestant, developed countries have insisted that corruption belonged to underdeveloped countries. In order to do business with these “underdeveloped” countries, many companies engaged in bribe payments. Some, like Germany and France, allowed tax deductions for money used in bribing foreign officials who benefited in major contract signing. In 2002 TI published the Bribe Payer’s Index (BPI) which showed countries according to their propensity to pay bribes in international negotiations. The report revealed a high propensity to pay bribes in countries such as Italy, the United States, France and Spain – all Christian countries.8 We must face the fact that rich Christians countries have contributed to spreading corruption, poverty and injustice.
We can infer that the some Christians that go out to share the gospel become involved in acts of bribery and illicit enrichment. Some have even offered to tithe all stolen goods. Some thank the Lord for illicit contracts, contracts which may send thousands of people, including Christian brothers and sisters, into a world of deprivation and misery. Some accept presents from corrupt authorities. Some sell their votes to help someone in their family get a job. Pastors lead congregations to vote on a corrupt candidate because the candidate unlawfully promised to give them land to build a church, Christian judges sell sentences to put money in their bank account.
We, as Christians, must recognize we are part of the problem. After acknowledging the Church’s role in corruption and injustice, we must act. The following are suggestions to tackling corruption and its relation to global poverty:
Preach consistently against corruption. Today, there are only a few places in the world where individuals cannot talk about corruption. Surely, these are the same places where the name of Jesus Christ isn’t welcome. Preachers should present sermons about corruption. A study of the Bible will show a number of occasions where men tried to bribe, rob, steal and kill. We need to hear more about the transformation the Holy Spirit brings to all areas of our lives.
Publish academic resources on how Christians combat corruption worldwide. Christians are found in varied fields of work. The Church should encourage theorists in various fields to write biblically-based articles and books on the impact of corruption on the population. The gospel message should be stated as the way to change people’s character.
Develop programs on personal integrity. The Christian world needs a down-to-earth program to curb corruption. Small groups should be formed in churches to discuss the subject. A study called “Total Integrity” will be launched in Brazil in 2006. It deals with integrity by addressing three main areas: personal integrity, social integrity and spiritual integrity. The objective is to help Christians and non-Christians look at corruption and its impact on world poverty.
Pressure governments to fight poverty and corruption. There are Christians working in organizations throughout the world, yet the Church does not appear as an instrument of pressure in world politics. In many cases, the Church has not said much concerning terrorism, human rights, organized crime, authoritarianism, war or treatment of the environment. We must speak out when governments or individuals are going against the commands of God found in Scripture.
Formation of an International Office Against Corruption. The Christian world needs a specialized office in the matter of curbing corruption that combines academic rigor and biblical commitment.
CRISCOR: An Example from Brazil
In Brazil, there is an initiative called CRISCOR (Christians Against Corruption, http://www.criscor.org/), which seeks to use biblical ethics to encourage both Catholics and protestants in the fight against corruption. Criscor is working with the United Nations Office Against Drugs and Crime (UNODC) and has promoted social transformation based on a fair distribution of wealth. Criscor has a ten-year goal of taking Brazil’s CPI from 3.9 (2004) to 7.0. In a country where 22% of its Gross Domestic Product (GDP) is taken through corruption, it is believed that more money will arrive to the poor by 2015. This will improve the lives of millions who would otherwise die of hunger and bad health conditions. By living longer, they will have a greater chance of hearing the gospel message.
Only when the Church is willing to look at corruption as a real threat to world evangelism will it be motivated to change. Christians in Europe and North America are called to join forces with Christians in Latin America, Africa and Asia to present an international and historical answer to world injustice, breaking the hold Satan has had on many nations. Our Lord Jesus Christ has called us to be light in this world. A small candle might not be enough to remove the darkness that corruption has brought into the world; however, millions of candles will surely provide the world with a powerful witness of the glory of God. If we all work together, those who live in both spiritual and social darkness might indeed live longer and hear the gospel message.
