Reno Omokri, a Nigerian author and former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan has called out the church over its obligations to society, which is to feed the poor.
According to him, the main objective of the church is to win souls for Christ and not preaching financial breakthroughs in the lives of its members.
He stressed the point that the church should stick to its main goal of seeking out the lost and saving souls for God.
“Churches should feed the poor. The poor shouldn’t feed pastors. The essence of Christianity is to win souls, not financial breakthroughs.
“Christ-following is about salvation, not wealth. What shall it profit a man to gain the world and lose his soul?”
In another post, Reno Omokri wrote;
“If Christ was physically alive on Earth today, would today’s flamboyant Christians consider Him a true Minister of God, seeing as he walked on foot, fed the poor (and wasn’t fed by the poor), and mixed with Samaritans who did not share His religion?”
It has become a norm for most churches to collect from the poor, all in the name of ‘financial breakthrough’ instead of assisting them financially to live a better life.
