Between the church and mammon, new age churches robbing God and man
“Can a man rob God? Perhaps NO in the Bible days but today! YES. The new age churches are robbing God. But if only they have robbed God who is Omni-rich no problem, but they have not only robbed God but the poor man. And they say, how have we robbed Him? Please see:
BOWEN University N650,000 per semester
COVENANT University N640,000 per semester
BENSON IDAHOSA N500,000 per semester
BABCOCK University N450,000 per semester
REDEEMERS University N450,000 per semester
AJAYI CROWTHER University N350,000 per semester
MADONNA UNIVERSITY N350,000 per semester.
All these Universities were built from Tithes and Offerings of the common people who now can’t afford to send their children to these schools today.
Where are the morals and responsibilities of the churches on charity in Nigeria?
What is the difference between church and political leadership in Nigeria?
These schools were all built with the sweats of their church members who kept sowing seeds that never germinate, grow, or yield fruits on their own vineyards but only in the vineyards of their ‘so called’ men of God and church owners.
In Agriculture, seeds and plants have botanical names. Therefore, botanical names for the seeds sown in churches are like:
Special offering seeds, First fruit seed, Redemption seed, Thanksgiving seed, Harvest seed
Tithes, Pastor’s seed, Church building seed, Evangelism seed, Father’s day seed, Mother’s day seed,
Children’ day seed, Pastor’s cake seed, Olive oil seed….etc.
These schools are now elite schools, only for the rich and politicians children. The church lords use the profits to buy private planes & jets to fly up high in luxury, ride Exotic Cars and live in expensive Mansions, while their members, (who are mostly the least of Jesus people) sleep hungry.
The next Sunday, they will read Malachi 3:6-12 to these members again without making reference to Deuteronomy 14:22-29 about their own responsibility to these poor members in their churches.
For change to come, let the fight against corruption begin from these new age churches for change to become a reality. The EFCC should please extend their torch-lights to these church leaders who have milked the people dry.
Thank God for early missionaries who built schools and gave basic education free or near free to many of us including the current leadership of these Churches and Universities.
