There is no doubt about what you used to think about the entrance of Christianity into Nigeria. Many said they brought us religion and took away our culture. Some believed that those who brought to us Christianity went away with some of our precious heritage and resources then. This is a fact.

My problem is not from the above statements. The issue is this. Since the advent of Christianity to Nigeria, how have we been following the teachings of Christ? Let us forget about those who brought it to us and how their situation is now with regards to their faith in God. We have taken the religion to the highest level of iberiberism, filled with Pharisees and Sadducees. Take a look and see how religion has turned into a business enterprise. Did we learn that from those who brought it to us? If yes, good and fine. Maybe then, we were still in darkness and were still thinking not too far from our noses. Now that things are changing in our world, you are now educated and civilised to some extent. Do you think we are on the right track?

In a street, you will find tens of mushroom churches. What are they doing? Converting souls for Christ? Accolades for them then! If you don’t believe what those who brought the religion said, apply common sense. At least believe in God. But if you don’t believe in God, then I rest my case and this write-up is not for you as mentioned above.

Somebody would just wake up one morning, and start his own church all the name of being under the influence of the Holy Spirit. Thanks to God that He is not like other gods that would strike you once you misused their names. Watching the way many of these churches operate will leave you in pain and tears of sorrow. When you see you will ask yourself, “Are all these in the name of God?”

As long as true religion is concern, the shepherd will always do everything to protect the sheep. That is s true pastor. But the moment the shepherd feeds on the sheep, then he or she is not a true sherperd, he or she is nothing but iberibe practicing iberiberism. The shepherd is using the sheep to enrich himself or herself. You know the the rest of the stories.
