What Power Draws People To Christian Crusades? by Omooba77: 6:57am On Nov 19, 2017
We just witnessed a Farewell crusade in Lagos and millions came for the event.Just thinking that if there is no God and miracles happening, believers and unbelievers alike will not flock in their thousands to all these events.

There is a certain void in human life that can only be fillied spiritually. Though some people who are fond of telling and believing their own lies will com and disagree with my assertion

People are looking for miracles. Sweet talks and adverts, publicity, beliefs in lying testimonies of the hosts among others are what draw people to the crusade ground. Entertainment, to steal cars, money and purses are also parts of the reason people attend crusades.

Power ke?
It's people's mad search for miracles and breakthroughs. And more than half of the crowds are there to pick pockets and snatch bags. Some went to just witness what is happening there. Nobody really goes to crusades out of the love of God.

You may be right, but many are there genuinely, even those who are there for other motives always get touched and saved by His Grace

salvation from what? Were they feeling insecure to make them think that they needed to be safe from 'what have you?'

That moment when your neighbor (female) with partial disability in the limb attends a crusade and is shown live on TV that she got healed but you see her two days ( and months) later she still remains in the same partial disability state.

Many people are seeking Devine intervention from above. Their yahoo pastors prey on them for that. They work less and pray hard while giving huge money to their pastors thinking success is like bet9ja grin

It's not rocket science.

Human beings need religion as a source of hope. It fills a void in our existence and religion develops to fill the human need for security.

Remembering the word " crusade". The guys who go out terrorising those who don't believe in the western religion. They carry a cross of fire and burn down innocent lives. The Slave masters were known for such, they disturb the neighbourhood just as the pastors are known for. Striking resemblance

The world is filled with people with various problems searching for solution, all you need do is give people a perception that their problems will be solved and they'll come in their numbers.

Poverty, miracle seeking n false belief.

STUPIDITY is when you don’t have a bicycle and you give your last penny to your pastor to buy a jet.

MUMU is when you can’t pay your children’s school fees and yet have money to contribute to your church to build expensive schools which your children will never attend.

IDIOCY is when you refuse to take your very sick child to the hospital because your pastor said you should not do so, yet that same pastor secretly runs to USA for medical attention any time he has a headache.

KOLO is when you see a poor beggar on the road and you refuse to give him 50 naira out of the 5000 naira in your pocket because it is your tithe money….

YOU are a zombie when you trek, dance and gallivant for 30 kilometers under the hot sun sweating and smelling like poo during your revival program, while your pastor is inside a full option, factory fitted air conditioned state of the art SUV with his delectable wife slow driving.along the road.

IGNORANCE is when you believe it when your pastor tells you not to live a worldly life, yet he enjoys all the best things in the world; the fine houses, cars, jets, babes etc, while you are waiting till you get to heaven to enjoy your own….

STOP worshiping your pastors!!! Stay focused on Jesus, the author and
finisher of your Faith. And learn to study the word of God.

Miracles and Deliverance
Re: What Power Draws People To Christian Crusades? by Fingerprinter(m): 9:36am On Nov 19, 2017
Baba, forget talk, no special thing or miracle happens in those events.
Have you heard of what is called crowd mentality? That's the exact thing that draws people to those crusades. If Muslims hold crusades, you would still see the same people that flocked Christian crusades in the same Muslim crusades. I'll explain why that happens below.

Man is a social animal, he takes pleasure in the presence of others. This is the exact same reason that many people flock secular music concerts. The same things that people do when they attend concerts is the same thing they do when they attend these crusades because they are all social events.

When attending concerts, people go with their partners, same happens for crusades. After the concerts, people go have sex with their partners, same happens when they attend crusades. Some even have the sex at the convert venues, same happens in crusade. If you doubt me. Go to TBS on December 2nd after they must have held The Experience on December 1st, then come back and report to me. Bottom line is, people only see these crusades as social gatherings where they could go cool off stress after the day's activities.
This is not saying that there is not a minute few who still think that miracles happen in crusades.

There is a third group. These ones are music lovers. You know during crusades, they normally invite the best musicians to perform. All those are baits because they know people fall for good music.
So, no miracle happens in crusades that don't happen in other similar social events.

When Reinhard Bonke was reigning those days, I had a cousin sister that was born deaf and dumb. I have another distant relative that got crippled due to accident. They would always flock these crusades, no matter where it was hosted. At the end of the day, we would hear that crippled walked, but it would never be people that we knew personally. This means that even the supposed miracles that happen in crusades are sham miracles. If they are not, how is it that there is nobody you know born deaf and dumb or blind from death that ever got healed in crusades. It is always others that get healed.

Before you talk about faith, my cousin was a little child when all that was happening. I can authoritatively say that the faith of her mother that was usually taking her to those crusades those days was obviously more than the size of a bean seed not to talk of mustard seed. Yet, nothing happened. The only thing that happened were unverified stories of others that were healed.

Verdict: crusades are social events where people come to cool off after the day's activities. Though there are a minute few that come to seek non existent miracles there.
