The Faith theatre 100,000 Stadium-like Auditorium which was designed by Students/Graduates of Covenant University has now been TEMPORARILY put on Hold as the Church waits for clear Divine Instructions on the matter. According to Bishop Oyedepo, God hasn't given a "go ahead" for the Construction to begin.

About 1,000 Hectares of Land had been initially reserved for the project at Canaancity and the Project reportedly ought to have run for Three years maximum and commissioned in 2019.

Right now, according to Leke Beecroft, the Church would now focus on expanding Faith Tabernacle(50,000) to accommodate hundreds of thousands of Worshippers. According to 2015 statistics Canaanland currently hosts about 400,000 people per Sunday over several Services-hence it is imperative to either build a new structure or expand the Faith Tabernacle.

Nigeria!

Big churches and mosques, little and weak industries.

Substituting work with faith,

... Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works. James 2:18...

The church can pave the way for massive industrialisation if it wants to. N50 billion will do a lot in Nigeria's economy.
what is dis one saying, so dey shud leave the church project and start building industries in nigeria because na president dem dey serve abi? U said N50b will do a lot in d nigerian economy, do u have any idea of the total amount of d last budget? Find out and tell me wat they've achieved with the money instead of saying irrelevant things

Remember just with few breads n fish thousands of pple came to c Christ

How can you be this shallow minded ni......... undecided

Are you waiting for rain to be falling on people who are sitting inside overflow outside the church premises before you will find solution on where to put people when they come to church? angry

If Daddy Freeze tweet now showing pictures of "sheeple", outside church, amongst the overflow, during service in raining season, na still una go call am heartless person, all E own na to collect tithe he no care for "brainwashed" people whey rain dey beat outside.

He planning on working on it, he still does not care, una way sef and the mixed multitude amongst the children of israel ehhhhh, no difference...... angry

It like una just suspend una brain the moment you see "Pastor" or "Church".......... undecided

And for your information, even if they spend $50 billion, if they are not convicted by the Holy Spirit to come to Christ, what you give them don't matter.

Afterall, even the Jesus Christ himself, that you are talking about, did he not help the poor?

Isnt it the same poor that formed a mob to demand that he be crucified?

The bible declares that he fed over 5000 people, at another time he fed 7000. Read for yourself what he said when the same people came to him the third time.

John 6: 26. Jesus answered them and said, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Ye seek me, not because ye saw the miracles, but because ye did eat of the loaves, and were filled. 27. Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him hath God the Father sealed.

There were poor people in existense when Solomon spent possibly billions on building the Temple. God did not leave heaven to start living inside the temple. However God himself commended Solomon for the project. Anything that bears the name of God must be splendid! and by the way it is not a yearly project. It is a once in a life time project so it should be done well enough. For a Church building a 500 Billion Naira city for themselves-50 billion is surely a small amount to appropriate for their church building.

Living Faith is a Super Wealthy Global Ministry and they phase the Church in 50 years. They are currently running a plan to 2032 which started in 1982 or so-you had better make peace or you would simply get more angry. The plans i have seen for the next few years are bold and massive. For example Living Faith must build 85,000 housing units more in addition to canaancity before 2032.


Lastly to those mentioning industrialization- the Church money isn't Nigeria's money only. We can't use income of worshippers in Ghana, US, UK, Kenya, Congo, South Africa etc to come and build industries for you. The last i know Ghanians have started accusing Living FAITH of building universities in Nigeria only. pls face your govt and hold them responsible for all your problems.

It is funny when some individuals accuse churches for not getting rid of poverty among people.
Where exactly I should begin to lecture such people, I seem not to know, and as such, in most cases I'd rather distance myself from arguing with any.

But to hit it straight and head-on, the Owner of the church, Jesus Himself, didn't cure poverty of all the poor souls when He came.
What those people who argue in favour of the poor don't know is that, even the poor have a Scripture that 'justifies' their existence, but it is individual's choices to belong and then remain poor.
Deuteronomy 15:11 says the poor will always be in the land; God Himself said this, so anyone trying to fight the church for not making all the poor in the land rich should take the fight to God, and this same Scripture Jesus indirectly quoted saying you would always have the poor among you in John 12:8.

In Proverbs, it is said that the poor and the rich meet together, and that God made them both, not that God made them so.
It would never be possible that there won't be poor people on earth again, BUT it is always possible that you choose by yourself not to be poor or remain poor.

With all the billions in the country, why couldn't the government just share the money to everyone, so that there won't be any poor man again?
Kiyosaki painted what would happen if any government would ever do that to her citizens some years ago; he said before long, the money in the hands of those with choice or mentality of poverty will find its way back in the pocket of those who know how to attract money by offering solutions to problem.
To be poor is a state of life, to remain poor is a choice of life.

Summarily, Church can't terminate poverty in the lives of every countrymen for the reasons God alone knows according to Scriptures, but individuals have the number one choice to remain in penury. For example, that you give offering and tithe doesn't even mean you will still be very rich, there are many more laws that control riches than just giving money. Many Christians also miss it here and should blame their poverty on ignorance of how things work.

Did Solomon do a"fund raising" Was he a Pastor or prophet? How many Men of God was rich in the bible? Even Jesus wan born in a manger and to a carpenter... Solomon built the temple with "his personal money" ..Till date, he is the richest man in the world!!!

If I ask you.."Why are Nigerian Pastors rich"...You will tell me that as a christian,you are entitled to the good things of life but...

Read this: Matt 19 vs 23...Then Jesus said to His disciples, “Truly I tell you, it is difficult for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven.
24 Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.”

Ofcourse there will always be the poor. Even in Jesus's days, there were poor folks(The widow with the best offering)... But, agree with me, most of the churches are profit oriented!!!! They do things, not for the masses, but to get profits!!! What happens to the expensive universities? when most of these pastors went to free missionary schools?? Dont just talk about standard or cost of maintenance here because missionary schools were the best and were maintained....We as Christians should learn to ask questions and not just follow churches the way we follow football clubs. Jesus never had a personal Donkey, He rode on a donkey for a purpose,Call it chattered but he never owned one!! Why will a pastor own 1,2,3,4 jets?? Warren Buffet who is even more busy than these pastors,never ever own a Private Jet!!!...Let me rest here!!!

Church church church.

You know, the West developed modern medicine, sewers, electricity, airplanes, and many other things when they stopped pouring all their resources into churches... around 1500s, they started rethinking and experiencing their Renaissance. You know what Renaissance means? Rebirth; as in the old ways of superstition, imaginary celestial beings, the power of the church were seriously questioned, and humans started being rational again.

If we spent 1/4 of the seeds, tithes, offerings, etc. on productive pursuits - industry, education, healthcare, we can leapfrog into the league of developed countries within 25 years.

Dude nor waste your time. We are in the 1500s mentally in 9ja. Forget that we use iphones and SUVs. Our ancestors had mirrors and guns (high tech stuff back then) brought by Europeans in 1500s but they did NOT have renaissance like the Europeans.

You guys love quoting that "poor will always be in the land " ish

Didn't you read about the early church? What was the rational behind people selling their stuff and bringing the money to meet the need of others?

Why were 7 Deacons appointed? Was it not to see to members welfare? So why have our church leaders downplayed that all important aspect? The bible said they were in one accord. There was love. Inequality was greatly reduced. They became the envy of the world and the church grew. How many cathedrals did Peter and Paul build? They practically ran house fellowships and shared their things in common.

I understand the urge to possess the earth but brother let's face the truth. The time of building mighty cathedrals is gone. Now is time to build and invest in people .

It amazes me how we run to the Old Testament to justify thing we do. Are we still building tabanacles? Are we still building temples? Then what did christ came for. Is'nt our body now the temple of God or am i not reading the bible correctly. Doing the work of God is good any day. After penticost they went about preaching the word and setting up people (churches) not mega structures. Let us remember to also reach out to the need. Let us continue to build organizations and industries that will employ and help the need and positively affect the economy. The missionaries came to Africa to help educate including oversea scholarship and expose us when Africa was poor. They built schoola and make it affordable for our forefathers to attend. Children of peasant farmers.They could have continue to build their mega structures and may be you and I will not be where we are today.

Read 1 chronicles 29:3 -10 and 1 kings 9:15 down


NO!! No!! NO!!!.....1 chronicles 29 was talking about Davids failed attempt to build the temple

in 1 Kings 9...King Hiram only offered gifts to help and Solomon gave him things in return...In verse 15, The "Levy" the KJV was reffering to was "Forced Labors" and not material things....Here is the text....1 king 9...(Good news Version) Always read good news version for better understanding..It is just straight to the point!


Solomon's Agreement with Hiram
10 It took Solomon twenty years to build the Temple and his palace. 11 King Hiram of Tyre had provided him with ALL the cedar and pine and with ALL the gold he wanted for this work. After it was finished, King Solomon gave Hiram twenty towns in the region of Galilee. 12 Hiram went to see them, and he did not like them. 13 So he said to Solomon, “So these, my brother, are the towns you have given me!” For this reason the area is still called Cabul. 14 Hiram had sent Solomon almost five tons of gold.

15 King Solomon used [b]forced labor
to build the Temple and the palace, to fill in land on the east side of the city, and to build the city wall. He also used it to rebuild the cities of Hazor, Megiddo, and Gezer. (16 The king of Egypt had attacked Gezer and captured it, killing its inhabitants and setting fire to the city. Then he gave it as a wedding present to his daughter when she married Solomon, 17 and Solomon rebuilt it.) Using his forced labor, Solomon also rebuilt Lower Beth Horon, 18 Baalath, Tamar in the wilderness of Judah, 19 the cities where his supplies were kept, the cities for his horses and chariots, and everything else he wanted to build in Jerusalem, in Lebanon, and elsewhere in his kingdom. 20-21 For his forced labor Solomon used the descendants of the people of Canaan whom the Israelites had not killed when they took possession of their land. These included Amorites, Hittites, Perizzites, Hivites, and Jebusites, whose descendants continue to be slaves down to the present time.

If nothing concerns the church with the economy, why then are they building universities all over? Why not leave education in the hands of the government?

Go and read the origins of these big schools in the UK and US and see who laid their foundations.

The religious bodies can turn the economy of this country around. Believe me.


Hold your failed politicians responsible. The church can't play the role of the government, while politicians are stealing the country blind.

So they are tryin to build more n bigger place where more people can enter so more n bigger tithes n offering can be collected. It’s simple bizness. God is not one to be mocked. Hebrews 7:5-19 have abolished the law on tithe n have rendered that low incomplete.

It’s better this money is used for humanitarian services where people will be happier n give glory to God for he’s Blessing. So many communities have no access to clean water etc. yes some will say the church have been doin, but remember there’s no limit to wat can do to assist people. It’s our duty God won’t come down n do it for us. Instead of building a bigger place. Those people that will go there at least have a place they worship before. Gods Blessing can reach everywhere it’s not necessary u have to be in one location called canaanland. HNY peeps.

And when the church population exceed 100,000 then what? Abandon the stadium and start a bigger building?

You guys love quoting that "poor will always be in the land " ish

Didn't you read about the early church? What was the rational behind people selling their stuff and bringing the money to meet the need of others?

Why were 7 Deacons appointed? Was it not to see to members welfare? So why have our church leaders downplayed that all important aspect? The bible said they were in one accord. There was love. Inequality was greatly reduced. They became the envy of the world and the church grew. How many cathedrals did Peter and Paul build? They practically ran house fellowships and shared their things in common.

I understand the urge to possess the earth but brother let's face the truth. The time of building mighty cathedrals is gone. Now is time to build and invest in people .

Shalom


I appreciate the fact that you didn't go personal and calling names.
This you should note, I am not speaking for any man of God, neither am I defending any.

That said.
If there is anything quite easy to do, it is to criticise. You would agree with me.
Looking at some questions holistically,
Was Jesus criticized for his approach to ministry, not doing it the way of John the Baptist?
Yeah, very well criticized, what I would want you hold on to today is, regardless of how you run a ministry if you are a Pastor, there will always be some folks who feel some things you are doing are wrong. Take it or leave it.
But before you condemn, how sure are you that building those cathedrals you mentioned was not a divine instruction given to them? So why acting as if you are always in the know of divine instructions given to them. You have not always been there when they have their callings. As much as I knew of Faith Tabernacle for instance, the prophecy for it came when there was not even a gathering of church numbering up to 15,000 congregation anywhere in this part of the world, nor when the church could build a 10,000 capacity. Would it not be unwise to think then that some men of God (not all) are building big churches because they want to show off?
What informed your assertion that some ministries are not investing in people or impacting lives? So from your 1,000 kilometers away, you quite know much how very un-impactful they are to people? I don't think there is any single ministry, either secular or religion that can meet the needs of all though, yet to think that they are not building people is ridiculous.


The truth is, there is more to what God could do than what foremost Apostles did. It would be very parochial to think that because Apostles didn't build big buildings you called 'cathedral', that it is a self-sponsored endeavour when few ones are doing it today. Even the Apostles were criticized and fought. Your criticism can't be the standard for knowing what is erroneous or outlandish.

We could have as well called all the men of God today dissenters, because they founded different denominations, after all, Apostles never started denomination thing!

Don't get me wrong, there are many so-called Pastors in errors, but there are also many who don't do things except God tells them to do it.

This you should know: become a leader, a coach, a pastor or a frontliner today and see if someone out there wouldn't tell you what you are doing wrong and how he can do it better than you.
Nobody anywhere has ever succeeded in pleasing everybody at same time.

There were poor people in existense when Solomon spent possibly billions on building the Temple. God did not leave heaven to start living inside the temple. However God himself commended Solomon for the project. Anything that bears the name of God must be splendid! and by the way it is not a yearly project. It is a once in a life time project so it should be done well enough. For a Church building a 500 Billion Naira city for themselves-50 billion is surely a small amount to appropriate for their church building.

Living Faith is a Super Wealthy Global Ministry and they phase the Church in 50 years. They are currently running a plan to 2032 which started in 1982 or so-you had better make peace or you would simply get more angry. The plans i have seen for the next few years are bold and massive. For example Living Faith must build 85,000 housing units more in addition to canaancity before 2032.


Lastly to those mentioning industrialization- the Church money isn't Nigeria's money only. We can't use income of worshippers in Ghana, US, UK, Kenya, Congo, South Africa etc to come and build industries for you. The last i know Ghanians have started accusing Living FAITH of building universities in Nigeria only. pls face your govt and hold them responsible for all your problems. Leave the church out of it.....



Source lol. When it comes to Churches in Nigeria especially Pentecostals I am a source to the source grin
