Hello Everyone, recently, some Nigerian Christian Journalists came to me with questions about my messages that expose the falsehood in the Nigerian church. They asked me some questions and I gave them answers. I will like to share both the questions and the answers I gave with you my friends, fans and followers.
The questions and answers will be released in parts. Please read and share this piece with as many people as you can. I believe it will go a long way to help the truth be heard in Nigeria, Africa and all over the world.
For the Love Of God, Church and Nation!

Apart from pastors, what do you think of the Nigerian Christian congregation? Observers say they are largely gullible and ignorant. Do you agree?
Yes, what I would say about the Nigerian Christian congregation is that a large amount of them have sold out their birthright to the so called men of God. The truth is that the pastors are not better or greater than their members. We are all fundamentally equal and all children of God first of all before anyone became a Pastor. And we as pastors, should not present ourselves as being superior to our members. We are all brothers and sisters. In Christ, we are all equal.
What has happened is that the congregation have subjugated their own sonship and given up their right to the pastors. Now many members are looking up to their pastors as gods.
That is what the African traditional belief system is like, unfortunately, that is what the Church too has become. The African traditional belief system promotes that the citizens are just ordinary humans and subjects, while the kings are treated as gods. This is exactly what is happening in the Nigerian Church.
Similar to the witch doctors and the babalawos, who are treated as deities and are revered as gods. That is how it is today in the church, the pastors have taken the place of the kings, witch doctors etc, and are now treated as gods and deities. Unfortunately, the pastors are enjoying and reveling in it while members are satisfied with being incapacitated as ordinary, vulnerable people depending on the good will of their pastors.
So, that gullibility is huge and appalling. The ignorance is mind-blowing. The leaders and the culture has conditioned people to this state. This is how idol worshiping has crept back into the church.
Nigerian Pentecostal and charismatic churches to a large amount are idol worshipers. I am aware that God always have remnants and there are churches that don’t fall into this category. However, a huge amount of churches in Nigeria practice Idolatry.
Question 4 is coming soon..
