He also admitted that prayer is not enough and religion will not save anybody. The actor claimed that during his break, God revealed many things to him.

He wrote; “Religion will not save us. Prayer is not enough. That is why we have thousands of churches springing up every day, yet evil persists. I took a break from my ministry so I could prepare myself spiritually for God’s work.

During that time, God took me on a journey and revealed so much to me. Don’t miss our live broadcast this Sunday. I will expose many secrets and teach you how you can protect yourself from the evil plans of the devil, which are spreading rapidly.”

Nigerian writer and life coach, Solomon Buchi has criticised famous actor, Yul Edochie who recently launched his own ministry.

Yul unveiled his online church, The Salvation Ministry, TSM, in January and had his first ministration on Sunday, January 28 on YouTube.

Reacting, Solomon said the actor is making a caricature of the Christian faith, especially with his actions which are in conflict of his preachings.

In a lengthy post on Twitter, the influencer also expressed concerns over his mental health status and suggested that the movie star be taken in for mental care.

Solomon wrote; “Yul Edochie is making a caricature of the Christian faith. From cheating on his wife, getting another woman pregnant and being caught, to claiming polygamy is normal and okay, and now to open a ‘ministry’ claiming God called him. No doubt, God can call anyone, but there’s a whole structure to the logistics of starting a ministry.

Who is Yul Edochie’s spiritual father? What church does he even currently attend? Who discipled him? In the past months, he’s been involved in adultery and polygamy, which the Lord can forgive, but why is his ministry launch so close to a vulnerable season, for which he needs repentance and healing?

Yul has been through quite a lot in the past months, and he might need intensive mental care. This charade isn’t helping and all he needs is Jesus and reflective time to morph into a better man. It’s hard to tell if his ‘ministry’ is sarcastic or real, but whatever it is, it is still embarrassing to the Christian faith. Get your life and family together first, Yul.”
