Reno Omokri, former Special Assistant to Goodluck Jonathan on New Media, took to his Facebook page to hit hard on modern churches, describing the modern church as the church who always pray for prosperity and against enemies.
Jesus fed thousands in the congregation and paid His disciples’ taxes, but today thousands of the congregation in the modern church feed their pastors and pay his bills.
There is a mass hypnosis performed on gullible millions who follow church doctrines rather than scriptural teachings. Somehow these teachings, particularly in the Pentecostal arena, seem to center on prosperity.
Let me give you an example. Yesterday was Sunday. In your church did the congregation pray for the victims of Hurricane Harvey in Texas or the mudslide victims in Sierra Leone, the typhoon victims in Indonesia or IDPs and victims of herdsmen in Nigeria? Probably not. But did they pray for prosperity and against enemies, probably yes. Voila! The modern church for you!
