Its so amazing and infact shockingly amazing how some Christian leaders are seeking and attracting the validation of people(unchristianed) to be relevant in their works.Nigeria is noted for corruption,,the media and every sector of the country is messed up with injustices,corruption and everything negative,,,but in this vein, we see these corruptable elements naming streets after some pastors,,in some cases giving them titles such as MON,OON etc,,,just recently some re even fighting its their Bishop that deserved to be Nigerias living legend and not another churches GO,,,
Its crazily fritghtening and terrifying how men of God are now being transformed to God of men!!,, In those days, as young christians, we criticise celestial church and Aladura because they pray in the names of their founding fathers,,,and these re just a few reason why there was a drift from white garment churches to the new generation pentecostalism( in most cases they re men's idea),,however, same thing is being done here,,we see people praying in the name of their Bishop and GO,,,and that is just the beginning of religion,,when people can't think outside their own box.
In a society where the likes of Gani Fawehinmi, Chinua Achebe and Wole soyinka,,,,can be more trusted for their sncerety and commitment towards the upliftment of the citizens plights,,by constantly challenging the authorities and rejecting any form of gifts,Title or street naming in protest against the political and social injustices,,,I would rather wanna find my Nigerian Legend in the above than looking for a spiritual Icon,,
More than the above,,John the Baptist exhibited the spirits and courage of the above names,,,and for that reason, he challenges the Government of his days,,,and was killed for that purpose,,,Martin Luther King did thesame thing for USA,,where and who are the Nigerian Christian Leaders to do a thing like this??
Save for Tunde Bakare,,,Just one of a few Pastors I respect in Nigeria,,,The church has a strong responsibilty to shape the country,,but it has woefully failed in its bid,,and it continues to fail because the Pastors re all seeking men's glory and not God's.
My annoyance is however, the majority of people who have been so dehumanised,brainwashed,skewed and twisted to think that their salvation lies in their pastors,,even in a clear and vivid misdeeds,,they still bow and worship God of men,,,sorry men of God,,whichever way,,,its ok,,thats Nigeria for you,,,
