We all believe in God, visiting churches and temples. We read the Bible, but sometimes not all understand. I do not understand those interpretations were written there. So at this moment we need a mentor who would give us the interpretation of this or that parable. This mentor in Nigeria is Pastor Enoch Adeboye.Very interesting his life, the way to God. It was interesting to learn before becoming a pastor and a minister of the church he was a professor of mathematics.It is good that people go to church to God. Some devote all his life to serving God.

In every country, people have faith in God. Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye is influential because people trust him. Listen to his advice and all calls to serve God. A simple man can not be a pastor. There should be a strong faith. The pastor should instruct people on the right path. In the most difficult moments we seek the help of God and believe in him. I think the pastor should not do bad deeds. And no one to obey the laws of God. Be kind to people. And give the latter the poor. To help everyone not only in word but also in deed.
