THE PROLIFERATION OF CHURCHES IN NIGERIA
Simply by NBF News
Is there anything at all wrong with proliferation of churches? My personal answer to this question is usually yes and no. Yes, because in Nigeria, to become alarmed for it because the establishment of churches has become grossly mistreated, with every Tom, Dick and Harry setting up a church following graduating from the Bible University.
Without, because in the event churches had been run while using fear of The almighty, there is absolutely nothing wrong with it. Whenever we have churches in all the areas of Nigeria preaching holiness and planning the citizenry for the coming of their Maker, the country will, no doubt, rank among the best countries in the world. But what do we have instead?
We now have a situation where people create churches pertaining to commercial purpose, making products of naive worshippers. It is an open key that joblessness has motivated a number of Nigerians to seek admission into Holy bible colleges while using sole purpose of setting up chapels to deceive unsuspecting worshippers. I want to reiterate for the umpteenth period that the fact of gonna Bible University is to never establish a chapel but to acquire theological know-how.
That you're in a Holy book College does not always mean you are automatically known as into ministry. And that you are actually called in to ministry does not mean you should create a house of worship immediately. Staying called in ministry and being led by the Heart of The almighty to start a church happen to be two various things. I daresay that most with the ministers in Nigeria are actually not named. Greed and inordinate goal to acquire riches overnight referred to as them in to ministry; hence we have this tragedy on our hands today. It is not hyperbolical to talk about that the body system of Christ as we have near your vicinity today is not the actual Lord Christ died to get.
We told my own church associates in a latest Sunday communication that the Church is supposed to become a body of transformed Christians. But the query is, how many Christian believers in Nigeria are altered?...
