A man of God identified as Pastor Giwa of the Awaiting The Second Coming Of Jesus Christ Gospel Church, has advised Christians to stop praying for the dead.

According to daily Post, the cleric in a statement mentioned that since the dead are no longer in existence in the physical realm, nothing can be changed about them.

Giwa however said prayers should be for the living.

Read his statement:

“It baffles me when people pray for the dead. Specifically, the Bible says in Ecclesiastes 9:5 that ‘For the living know that they shall die; but the dead know not anything, neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten.’

“Also in Psalm 146:4, ‘When their spirit departs, they return to the ground; on that very day, their plans come to nothing.’

“As we are still living, we have plenty of time to examine our lives whether we are in the faith. All of us are still living by grace, and when death comes, we know nothing again.

“Let us look deep into our hearts to see whether we truly serve God or not. Are we not using God’s name to gather money for ourselves? But I tell you that everyone will have to give account on the day of judgment for every empty word they have spoken, according to Matthew 12:36.”

If you die and you are not buried yet, the name of Jesus Christ.
can still wake you

You have all the privilege to make your way to God
once you die and buried IT IS OVER

pastor or Imam prayer will not change anything
it's now between you and your maker

Give your life to Christ now before is too late no one know tomorrow.

Great job sir

To make something clear here "Purgatory" was used to raise money in the church for those following religion without studing the scripture

Any person or group of persons who want pray to God to have mercy on the souls of their dead relatives or friends should be free to do so. Those who don't want to do this should also be free not to. #Freedom of belief.

Do people pray for the dead ? We only pray God accept their souls not for the departed to be accepted into heaven or hell but to fulfill all righteousness

He should be more concerned about winning souls to Christ. Praying for the dead or not is not the determinant to heaven rather ones relationship with God. He should be more concerned of that. Let them preach more about the kingdom of God.

GOOD ADVICE, BUT HE SHOULD CHANNEL HIS ADVICE TO CATHOLICS AND NOT TO CHRISTIANS BECAUSE CHRISTIANS DON'T PRAY FOR THE DEAD BUT CATHOLICS DO.

I don't agree. After death comes judgment. So your soul is still active. The bible said that God's mercies are endless. So he can show mercy to your soul even after death

Why won't people just mind their business. Is anyone imposing it on your church to do same, or do u think most people doing it don't have revelations as to why they do it.

But the same Bible is saying, Hebrews 9:27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:

So which mercy after death are you talking about?
