Typical Nigerian Pastor by philanthropist1(m): 7:35am On Sep 01, 2017
The typical Nigerian Pastor won't talk about Usain Bolt or Serena Williams.
He won't talk about Aliko Dangote or Ngozi Okonji Iwuala or Tony Elumelu or late Dora Akunyili.
The typical Nigerian pastor won't talk about Steve Jobs or the young people in Silicon Valley reshaping our world.
He won't talk about young American scientists spending endless hours in search of a cure to a disease that's predominantly in the Tropical African region.
The typical Nigerian pastor won't talk about Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie or Ben Okri.
In every corner of the world, there exist young men and women who defied all odds and became successful through hardwork, creativity and dedication...
The typical Nigerian pastor won't talk about them......neither will he ask his members to emulate the spirit of these individuals.
He would rather talk about sister Agatha who got a job she WAS NOT THE MOST QUALIFIED because she prayed and fasted in line with their church program.
Or
Brother John who became a millionaire because he used all his salary as a seed in the church.
Or
Papa Miracle who he laid his hands on and 3 of his children got admission in the university
Or
Mama Esther paid her tithe and her business started growing everywhere across the nation......no business plan, just boom, everywhere.
This has led to a new breed of mentally lazy young people who now see God as a rewarder of mediocrity.
To the typical Nigerian Pastor,
the only way to prosper is by paying your tithe and sowing seeds in the church. So they will never talk about those who have through hardwork and dedication placed themselves on the world map.
No......the Nigerian God only blesses the first 30 people that rush to the altar to drop 100,000NGN as seed.
The Nigerian God abhors hardwork and creative thinking. He only gives to those who sow seeds and offerings......and those who shout "I am a millionaire" every morning and do nothing the rest of the day.
Continue....
you want God to come down and help you use the talent He gave you and bless you because you are going to church to shout "Daddy I receive it".
You are all jokers.
Can someone tell these jokers that irrespective of your creed, faith or religion, blessings and favours follow you once you start using your talent and become useful to your society. What about other religious/spiritual persons that are not Christians, they don't shout these things yet they are successful?
Do you know that God will question you if you return to him with all the resources he bestowed on you untaped. Grace truly speaks but don't forget that hard counts pertinently. Proverbs 22:29 readd
"Seest thou a man diligent in his business? he shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before mean men."
Don't forget that Faith without work is dead

I was walking through a street in Lagos just last week Sunday and what i noticed amazed me alot, out of the 20 houses or so in the street about 15 of them had churches in them some were full time church buildings while some are residential housing the church and i was like how would it have been if half of those church buildings were factories producing anything useful to the economy instead of just collecting tithes and offering from people? Won't we as a nation be better a bit than this now?
