We must never lose sight of the PRIMARY mission of the church.
The church was not set up by Jesus Christ to build hospitals and schools but to lead men and women from sin and Satan unto God. Building schools and hospitals is only a SECONDARY mission for the church. It is the government’s PRIMARY duty to build schools and hospitals.
The church therefore should not receive the blame for the failure of government.
If people want the church to build hospitals and schools and provide employment for the population, then the people should start paying their TAXES to the church and the NNPC and CUSTOMS should pay all their revenues into the account of the church.
When people talk about Pastors flying private jets all over the place, I ask, what is the percentage of Pastors flying private jets in Nigeria?
There are probably hundreds of thousands of Pastors in Nigeria. How many of them own private jets?
I don’t have the statistics, but I doubt if up to 50 Pastors in Nigeria own private jets . How can these few Pastors then become the basis of carpeting all Pastors in Nigeria.
If we are complaining that there are many criminals & fraudulent people in Nigeria in spite of the many churches, I want you to imagine how many more criminals there would have been if there were no churches. Or are we saying that the churches are the ones producing these criminals?
Criminals are a product of a failed society, failed marriages, failed parenting, failed schools, & failed governments. The church did not create the failed society. The church is only doing her best to salvage what can be salvaged in an already bad situation.
The savior should not receive the blame for the ills of society.
I myself would probably have joined the club of criminals and fraudsters and swell their rank and file if not for the church that preached the gospel to me and led me to Christ for salvation.
The church brought me up to have the fear of God and shun all evils. I have remained in the church for years now following Jesus. I believe the are many like me who can testify that were, it not for the influence of the church on their lives, they may have ended up as criminals.
Let’s stop blaming the church.
Government should instead be appreciating the role of the church in nation building.
Of course I am aware that there are bad eggs among churches and Pastors, but that does not invalidate the great role the church is playing in our national life.
We should never support or encourage those who are bad-mouthing the church.
Never seize to pay your tithe or support God’s work because of some few brainwashed people speaking against the church.
I rest my case.

KenPoly graduate who killed himself, cheated on his girlfriend
Shocking news of a graduate of Ken Saro-Wiwa Polytechnic (Kenpoly), Charles Orji who killed himself over a breakup with his girlfriend broke the internet last week.
The sad news was shared by a Twitter user who wrote,
“A Graduate From The Department Of Estate Management KenPoly Named Charles Orji Has Reportedly Committed Suicide This Morning After his girlfriend dumped him!!! Na wao!”.
Ken Saro-Wiwa polytechnic officials reported that Charles took in “sniper”, a strong insecticide, as a means to end his life.
According to reports by close persons, Charles was hurriedly buried in his hometown due to the unfortunate nature of his death.
As of last week, the reason behind the break-up wasn’t not know until Charles’s family member revealed the unknown. Charles cheated on his girlfriend and killed himself because his girlfriend refused to continue with the relationship.
The family member wrote,
“Charles I’m mad at you for what you’ve done and what you put my sister and our family through, we all loved you for who you were to her and to us. This isn’t the first time you’ve tried to kill yourself for a girl you love, but why make rejoice take the blame for your suicide this time around?
“You weren’t faithful to her but you claimed to love her, you confessed to sleeping with her close friend and even other girls, you weren’t faithful but she forgave you, even though she decided not to put up with your unfaithfulness anymore. You made such a rash decision drinking 3 bottles of sniper just because of the text she sent to you, didn’t even wait to talk to her, when you were rushed to the hospital, she had to send 20k to your people for hospital bills, money she doesn’t even have… before you died you told people that she is to be blamed for your death, now on social media people are cussing her out because of you, your family is threatening her, she’s not safe anymore.
charley, you’ve brought her pain, and no one is even giving her a listening ear… you don’t do that to someone you love… I’ve said enough, let me not say anymore.
“Rest In Peace”.
