The new bill has several flaws in it. For one, it limits the freedom of those Christians, who have not been certified by the JNI or CAN. Only the certified “preachers” can share the Gospel now, but how about the words of Jesus? He gave His church the Great Commandment to preach the Gospel and that includes all the believers with no need to get certified. Basically, such a law restricts religious freedom of people.
Then there is the issue with limiting “public places” to just few locations. And there is the problem with religious law discriminating other religions besides Islam or Christianity. Yes, the freedom of word and religion is one of the key rights of Nigerians according to their constitution. However, many people face tribulations and persecutions when they try to follow the Word of God and keep it.
El-Rufai on Jesus
Besides trying to pass such an ungodly preaching bill El-Rufai has made some daunting statements about Jesus Christ. He claimed that the Son of God had wives and had sex with women. He took to social media to tear down religious purity and holiness of the Lamb of God.
