In light of the Ooni of Ife's recent gaffe when he said Jesus is his father, whereas his title as king of ife literarily means Oonirisa (leader of the Orisha). Ooni aside, traditional rulers generally perform a lot of roles that are in tandem with the African traditional religion and it is statedin the bible that no one can serve two masters. So what are the chances of a born again christian being a traditional ruler.

Sometimes, i wondered if the Ooni coronation was in the church. He cannot tell us he hasn't been involved in any kind of ritual since getting on the throne.

Who is a born again christian ??
An individual who worships his imaginary friend "Jesus" who was born 40,000 years ago and there's nothing to prove his birth, he was the only person in the history of humanity to be born by a virgin and a holy ghost ?? grin

When was Christianity brought to Africa ?? 300 years ago
What was people in Africa practicing ?? Traditional culture of course.

Who even discovered Christianity and named it Christianity, set a rule and scared you with imaginary heaven and hell ?? Last time i checked, the imaginary Jesus you guys worship is a Jew.

Religion is worst than drugs, it will ferment your brain

And here lies the nexus of ALL the problems of Nigeria.

The British who colonised us, have successfully interwoven their culture with Christianity. They were all Catholics before King Henry VII decided to marry 2nd wife which the Pope forbade. So he cut himself off from the Pope, the Catholic church and formed Anglican church - Church of England. He went ahead to marry the 2nd wife.

What is a traditional ruler sef?
The pope is traditional to Rome.
The queen is traditional to England.
Babarosa when he was king was traditional to Germany.
If all these traditional rulers are Christians, then a all Nigerian traditional rulers can be.
They just have the believe in the lordship of Jesus Christ.

yes, a born again can hold any position ranging from traditional ruler to that of president. The Pope being the highest ranked christian on earth is also the president of the Vatican city the smallest country in the world

The bible says we should give unto Cesar what is due for Cesar and God what is due for him. Oonirisha is not an idol name, its like olubadan, owa obokun, there is nothing wrong if a christian becomes a king. It is to the glory of God. The first president of christ apostolic church (CAC) was ibadan king and he was regarded till today as one of the greatest man of God.

John 6:15 When Jesus therefore perceived that they would come and take him by force, to make him a king, he departed again into a mountain himself alone.
