Nigerian rapper, Falz during an interview has shared his reasons for not going to church, despite being a Christian.
The rapper has not been to church since 2019 and his mom is complaining too. The rapper during the interview said he believes in God, but prefers spirituality to Religion.
His main reason for saying no to church going is because of his experience at churches which he has been to.
In his words,
“I’m not an atheist. I believe there is a God. But I believe in spirituality over religion.”
“I have nothing against the church or going to church. Everyone has the right to practice the religion they desire. It has been a while that I have been to church. It does not make me less of a Christian,” Falz had said in reaction.
The reason is that I went to a few churches and, during sermons, I was put under undue pressure. There was a time that a pastor called me to the altar just to acknowledge my presence for being in church.
“In my mind, I felt that the service was not about me. I felt that everybody was there to worship God, yet they were putting undue pressure on me. The pastor gave me the microphone to address the congregation and I was puzzled; what did he expect me to say to the congregation?”.
