A research was conducted by the Washington-based Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life, according to this research, Africans are among the most religious people on earth. The research titled Tension and Tolerance: Islam and Christianity in Sub-Saharan Africa were situated on over 25,000 interviews conducted in more than 60 languages in 19 countries. The study proves that at least half of all Christians in Sub-Saharan Africa believe Jesus will return in their lifetime. One in three Muslims in the region expects to see the re-establishment of the Caliphate.
There are at least 89 million Christians in Nigeria, and Pastors collect 10% of their income. Just imagine the total amount they get every week and that does not include the seeds they compel their congregation to sow using God’s name as a foil. They do not build free schools with this money nor do they provide affordable healthcare. The average church member cannot afford the private schools these churches have established. But we see them drive exotic cars, live in a lavish mansion and wear super expensive accessories.
This brings us to the question of who gifted Pastor Chris Oyakhilome who already owns a private jet another one?
The Jet was given by the Loveworld Music and Art group, an arm of the Believers Loveworld Ministry (aka Christ Embassy) trained by him to produce gospel tunes. His gift was presented to him at the Loveworld Convocation Arena (LCA) to close the week-long International Pastors and Partners Conference (IPPC) held on the 19th of November, 2017 in Lagos, Nigeria. It is worthy to note that Pastor Chris is one of the richest Pastors in Africa.
Notable members of the group are Sinach, Evang Kathy Woghiren, Buchi, Frank Edward, Joseph Omo Ebhodaghe (Joe Praise), Eben, Ada Ehi Moses, Martin Phyke, Peter Tobe, Viwe Nikita, Samsung, Da Flame, Pee Yu. Obi Shine, Victor Ike, Sophia, Chris Shalom, T-Sharp, Sharon CSO, Deacon Raph, Isaiah, Eli J, Iyke Onka, Destine Destined Destiny and a whole lot more.
This happened in Nigeria the world’s poverty capital. Africa really does has a long way to go, the people (Africans) need to start thinking logically, they need to stop ascribing everything to God and start asking critical questions about the fundamental presuppositions of religion. Only then can we move forward as a continent.
