I told myself that I will no longer contribute to religious topics on NL but am simply contributing to this not to say much, but to say that I am happy that Nigerians are beginning to understand that almost 90% of the population is strongly been held in hostage by religious scammers.
Thanks to Okija Juju and others who are logical with their reasoning. The problem is simply fanaticism. No matter how much we try to make our fellow country men & women see things with their true analytical eyes, they turn blind to reality.
Is it because we are too afraid to confront life challenges that make most of us Nigerians cling to their belief of something that has been proven to be non-existent?
We are too afraid to face difficulties thus; we need these so called "men of god" to keep our hope alive.
Like someone said here; most of us grew up in homes where our parents are "clergy" people as such, we know & have almost read the bible through.
As adults, we should be able to analyse for ourselves and be at least, true to ourselves that these "pastors" have become multi-billionaires from looting their followers.
I must acknowledge that they are good at what they do!

So fcking well said.
A lot of them are scared chickens, hence the facing of religion for "salvation".
Nigeria is such a tough and harsh place where the evil/bad unexpected can happen to you and the safety net if it happens is very weak, so they are desperate to find some control. Since they can't find it, they resort to scraping the bottom of the Human Psyche: RELIGION run by an all powerful GOD that will save them if they please him.
Due to their fear and sense of lack of control/helplessness, they will believe any message that tells them someone/something else is in control (especially when the message is mixed with threat that their case/fate would be worse if they do not believe the message). The fear factor is powerful. These method has been used over time across the world to shape humans beliefs and behaviours.
People with pure and simple rudimentary thinking. And such thinking is being exploited by criminals like Ole-depo.

First and foremost!!
This is a great and laudable project!! Heck if every state in Nigeria had one of these, we would have achieved something great in their 4 year tenure.
The problem is not if the housing project is a great idea or if Covenant University is a good university (which by the way, I beg to differ). . .
What we are scrutinizing here is the source of wealth and the morality behind it.
Oyedepo has no real job, like painter, accountant, tent-maker or even a carpenter like Jesus.
He is a preacher. A seller of false-hope. He thrives on preying on the vulnerabilty of both poor Nigerians and rich religous Nigerians to make money.
He is no different from a con man. Let us put God aside for one second and look through a clear glass devoid of Yea's, Thou's and Amens.
Now Oyedepos money comes from both the rich and the poor and the helpless. Countless of times I have been in his church and heard the pastors preach the congregation into a high so big that all he does is say. . . "Give the lord a 'challenging ' offering today, and see his blessings". . . The poor woman that fries Akara would put all of her profits into the basket because she wants God to bless her with a house in Lekki, the 40 year old retired prostitute turned usher would put hers as well because she wants a husband, the student failing in school would give away all his pocket money because he wants God to miraculously change his F-grade to an A. . and so on. . Problem is these things rarely ever happen. Then during the course of the week, some chap in the church hits a lucky break and comes and testifies in church and attributes his luck to the 100 Naira tithe he has been paying for over 15years. . . Many of the congregation would buy into it and now keep hoping that one day, theirs would also come.
Meanwhile, Oyedepo is doing this to a multitude of approximately 1 million followers. Lets say 1million followers put in a offering of 100 Naira on a sunday, thats 100 million Naira EASY!! there are 53 Sundays in 2012, so 100 million multiplied by 53 = 5.3 Billion Naira per year. . . Hope you are understanding the mathematics of his wealth. . We are not adding the offerings from Crusades, Outreaches, House fellowships, Rivival services, Miracle services, Tithes, Seeds, Pledges and realization from sales of Church branded Mercahndises like Books, Calenders, C.Ds, DVD's, annointing oil, miracle Handkerchief and the rest. . . The cashflow is unbelievable.
Now in a country where minimum wage is 18,000 Naira (and still some states are finding it hard to keep pay), over 70% living below the international set poverty line, where unemployment is at 25% per 10million Nigerians. . How do you expect them to afford to send their wards to Convenant University whose tuition fees are over 250,000 Naira or live in that 45million Naira edifice he is planning on building?! And stop that foolish talk of Nobody is forcing you to buy, because its downright ignorant at best. . . Nobody is forcing me to buy an Aston Martin at over 100,000 pounds but atleast I am not a stake holder in the firm, I didnt contribute to it. . But if my money in anyway contributed to building a School, buying Jets, building an estate, I may not be entitled to get freebies, but I'll be damned if I dont get some sort of dividend from it.
I have no problems with the business man named Oyedepo, I have a problem with the Crook/conman/Pastor named Oyedepo.

So fcking well said, especially the bolded!
The cretins have been doing religion and are one of the most religious people on Earth for well over 30 years, yet 70% still live below the poverty line and the fools still believe that religion is irrefutably financially rewarding and they get more "blessing" than those that have not taken JEEEEEEEEEEEEEEESUS!
You will see the mugus lining up to go to the con-centres on Lagos-Ibadan expressway every weekend for their weekly "prosperity" junk-preaching. And people like Ole-depo will fleece them and buy his new private jet.

(John 3:29) for some of them thought because he had the money bag that Jesus had said to Judas, buy those things that we have need of against the feast; or that he should give something to the poor, a proof that Jesus gives money to the poor if not, they would not have thought so.(Act4:34-37)neither was there any of them that lacked: for as many as were possessors of lands or houses sold them, and brought the prices of the things that were sold and laid them on the apostles feet: and distribution was made to every man according to his need and Joses surnamed Barnabas....... (also an apostle)having land sold it, and brought the money, and laid it at the apostles feet. Jesus and his Apostles though they were poor but not lacking daily bread and don't forget they are privileged to have horses and chariot which is their own type of Jet and Motor, yet they use the gift they receive from willing people and even sold the things they have to give to the poor(those they were better than) but today those who men call (men "of" God) sold the deceived to poverty to buy and show off lands and mansions (which they preach someday will all be destroyed) and using every trick including false testimonies to estort money from the poor and calling it "giving to God the widows mite" if these men were of Christ why have they seize to tread the path of the ancestors and were treading the path of the Pharisees because I believe that Christianity is no religion, but a kind of life style which Christ lived while on earth and to be a man of God is not to go to a Bible school or posses the ability to convince or convict men, because the gift of God is without repentance but rather to be an ambassador of Christ in every ramification.

Your threats are not credible.
You want to know why?
YOUR MAN-OF-GOD IS A FRAUD.
He is only significant to brainless mugus

You are a fucktard!
|Re: Bishop Oyedepo's Proposed Canaan City In Pictures by Okija_juju(m): 5:38pm On May 03, 2012|
You bloody churchgoer?!
You talked about poo to a "MAN OF GOD" like me and then turn around to write that bullshit!!
Do you want Alusi Okija to smite you with leprosy?
You even quoted the bible for me. . . now let me quote some for you to chew on;
Alusi Okija: Proverbs 17:150
It is the word of God that we use to Judge Oyedepo and that is not My personal judgment, but God’s, so by obeying this we are doing EXACTLY what Jesus said, to JUDGE righteously.
John 7:24 Jesus said: “Do not judge according to appearance, but judge with righteous judgment”,
Oyedepo is a common criminal that has mastered the art of deception through selling false hope based on verses from the bible.

meksmewo: The word christianity could be define as "being christ like". If this is true then I am 100% sure that there are only few christians in the world especially in Nigeria (I am judging no one). I said this cos I know the "Men of God" who were supposed to follow the steps of Christ and guide us through this wicked world have turned to the wicked ones.
this is not just mere thought it is the truth, and comes from the source of all truth,....JESUS
|Re: Bishop Oyedepo's Proposed Canaan City In Pictures by Kanto: 3:47am On May 04, 2012|
Oyedepo is one of the 90% yoruba franchise of 419 churches around the world. The most heartless and wicked crime is to use the name of God to 419 people. The man is a vicious criminal.Ole Barawo! Thief thief

~Bluetooth:bros... You remind me of the mistake my own mother made over 2 decades ago. The found a land for her around mile 2 and her complain was that it's bushy... How is mile 2 today. This is the mistake many people make in life.
Trust me and mark my word... Ogun State is developing fast. How many people can buy a land in Lagos today but with 500k, you can get a plot of land in Ogun State.
My mother bought a land at 250k back in 2004 or 5 in Ogun State but now, you can't even get a land for 600 or 700k in that area, near The Bells(OBJ school).
In 2008 during the shiloh at Canaan Land, a company distributed leaflets and when they handed me a copy what did I see? Mowe Offada plots of land at 300k... With every doc. C of o etc but today, if you get a land for 700k there, you are lucky!
Be wise my people... No Land lord will give you an award for staying in his house and you will never be his friend as long as there's som1 with a better pay. I told a friend that I am going to own a few plots of land in Ogun State. I no come form mugu for this live I come o.
