Quit playing religion, be godly, cleric implores Nigerians
Senior pastor, Evangelical Church Winning All, ECWA, Wuse II, Abuja, Rev. Dr. Barje Maigadi, has implored Nigerians, particularly Christians, to stop playing religion to avoid a fatal ending in life.
Instead, he advised them to allow themselves to be revitalized by the Holy Spirit for the good of mankind and advancement of the kingdom of God.
The cleric, who gave the charge while delivering a sermon on the topic: "A fatal ending", anchored his message on the Book of Judges, Chapters 20 and 21, respectively.
According to him, the manifestations of fatal ending are: spiritual and moral anarchy in the land; death of the spirit of hospitality; prevalence of homosexuality; prevalence of rape and murder.
"When the people of God abandon or reject God, these things happen to them. It is difficult for us to be hospitable, because of death of moral and spiritual uprightness.
"It is common knowledge that today, we have churches that are divided among tribes, creed and social status. We are good in religion but very bad in spiritual living, we speak spiritually but our lives show carnality," he opined.
He further said: "Nigeria would have changed significantly if we match our lifestyles with the degree of church activities. We are too religious but spiritually handicapped in the country. Let's stop playing religion, and let our lives be revitalized by the Holy Spirit for the good of mankind and advancement of the kingdom of God."
He therefore called for Christians to regularly test their spiritual life, to ascertain the spiritual level their lives.
