Nigerian Christians: Not matured for the New Testament.

Nigerian Christians: Not matured for the New Testament.

The present crop of Christians in Nigeria has shown that they are not yet matured to use the New Testament in bible. The New Testament is a book meant for the spiritually matured minds and not the business-oriented hearts. A lot of things are happening that one begin to wonder what is going on.

Are Christians no longer scared of God that they do whatever they like? Is it because of grace that prophets of God turn His house of prayer into a house of business?

The laws that God enacted in Deuteronomy 28 was for a people with stubborn mindset so that they can be in line. In the Old Testament, it was immediate punishment such as death when you go against the laws. There were no exceptions.

A lot of men of God as well as members have turned the Christian faith into a religion of mockery. There are so many fake men of God who have become turned Christianity to a business venture that they come out and blaspheme against God and lie against the Holy Spirit. They say all sorts of things just to confuse their followers and lead some of them to early graves.

The roles played by some respected men of God in this electoral period have left a lot of them in a position for a serious explanation to do to their followers. A lot of their prophesies turned to be lies. And they always quoted that “God told me or The Holy spirit instructed me to…” Some of these so-called prophesies are:

“Saraki will be the next president in 2019”.Saraki did not win his senatorial bid

“PMB will die if he campaigns for this next election”. PMB campaigned in 36 states and he is still alive.

To most Christians the belief is simple and no matter what you do, once you go on your knees God forgives. This is the era of the New Testament where God’s mercy is abundant and one is covered by grace. They keep forgetting that in the same New Testament, it is written that the greatest sin is blasphemy against the Holy Spirit.

Trending on social media platform recently is the South African Pastor Alph Lukau who claimed to have resurrected the dead. The owner of the funeral parlor where the hearse was rented to carry the coffin with the man who played dead in the coffin the pastor had bought elsewhere has declared that she would come out to testify against the scam of the pastor. The funeral parlor is based in Polokwane. Sometime ago, another South African pastor ordered his followers to eat grass as an instruction from God.

We need strict punishments just like those of the Old testaments that will strike down men of God on the spot and those without the fear of God who go contrary to the gospel of Christ. The New Testament should never have been introduced to Nigerians because we are not matured for issues that require deeper understanding. We are so backward in our spiritual lives that we have even abandoned the instructions from the scriptures but instead follow instructions that our so-called spiritual leaders have concocted to lead us astray.

Nigerians have become so lazy that we hardly read and study the bible and also ask God for his understanding. We allow our pastors to do the reading for us, and become so gullible that anything they say whether it is right or wrong, we accept it without processing it. Is it not absurd to hear a pastor saying “It is better we vote for a thief instead of a killer” ? Why not say “You should not vote for a thief or a killer but someone who is clean”? Is it all the aspirants in the just concluded Nigerian election that is either a thief or a killer or someone with soiled hands?

It is time we start developing a relationship with God rather than remaining loyal to churches and pastors who are only after their pockets and not the salvation of your soul. We need more of the Old Testament texts to help us understand and appreciate the New Testament better.
