Church has caused emotional stress by telling you not to do all what will later tell on your health? Don't smoke,don't drink,don't fornicate are things that caused you emotional distress?
NO, church caused me emotional distress by making me feel guilty as a child and trying to make me believe that i am guilty of Nothing. i used to see Adult crying screaming shouting all manners of hysteria, fire! fire! holy ghost! fire! kill my enemies!! All that caused me distress Emotionally, as a child i was wondering what was wrong with those Adults, i really thought that they were mentally sick and still think so.
They coerced me into believing lies that i was a sinner, and was possesed by evil spirits and devil, i mean, how can that not cause a child emotional distress and paranoia? they never gave me a choice in what to believe, they shoved their dumb and stupid Religious lies and fairytales down my kindergaten throat. They made me believe i had noneexistence enemies spiritually and Otherwise, i mean, how can a 4 or 5 years old Already has an Enemy? let Alone enemies.

perhaps, All that emotional abuse lead me to the part of drinking and smoking and fornicating Acording to you.

If you wanted to be ignored you wouldn't post it, you did because you wanted attention for it but we all know that those who seek attention are needy
I am glad you can recognise another attention seeker like you grin because it would take one attention seeker to know another. Hence you couldn't Ignore, Did i steal your place? i must have made you feel unwanted and inadequate. try not to slit your wrists.

I bet to disagree. Even pastors commit suicide
Being a pastor is different from having a personal relationship with God

What a load of crap.

You doing more harm than good to your kids mental health this is why genius hardly come out from the black race world wide.


Stop wasting your time on a none existent entity named God.

How did the world come about? God. Why do we breathe air? God. Who created you? God. How does the earth rovolves and still rotates along its axis? God. Watin? Ah ha, i understand you ignorant but atleast get curious for once to read and outsmart your previous ignorant self for once in a lifetime because those are the list of questions we assume God did but upon scientific ground breaking discoveries, we now know how those things works.

There are plenty more we still learning and also manipulating what we already know for human survival on the planet.

This means, God as a name or perceived entity is a receeding pocket of ignorance, the more we study to know, the smaller the ignorance shrinks smaller and smaller till it goes away completely but the question is do we read to make this ignorance go away?

The fact that we know how it works does not mean that God is not behind it

There is difference between religion and sprituality. Which you can't obviously see. Sprituality teach content, which leads to peace then joy. Which is the end of all things. There will always be something one lack in life. Relative to the village man you are in paradise. But some village people can still be more happy than city urban dweller with the right spiritulity.

Spirituality work from inside out. Not outside in. Learn to learn. Be humble while doing it.

Spot on with your post, Nigeria is a religious country but not a godly nation, they are two different things, now, take a look at China, the Chinese are almost classified as an Atheist Nation but almost all the electronics, plastic chairs, microphones used in all religious centres in Nigeria comes from China, China doesn't subscribe to prayers / fasting and so many religious bulshit going on in Nigeria but China is working, they have all the basic infrastructures like good roads, security, power, good economy all working for them to the extent that they are able to challenge the US on several front just like the current economic war between the US and China.

Nigeria on the other hand prays daily with thousands of churches, mosques, voodoo centres littered across the country but unfortunately it doesn't translate to spirituality but rather all the evidence of a failed state after the order of Afghanistan, Yemen, Syria, South Sudan, and Libya are all in Nigeria and to crown it all, Nigeria is the current headquarters of extreme poverty in the world and the 6th most miserable country on earth but ironically it is a praying nation, God cannot be mocked with frivolous religious pieties void of Godliness

God is tired of useless prayers coming daily from Nigeria void of righteousness and the Patriotic citizens of Nigeria will get offended by my post, instead of them to match to Abuja to stone the politicians in power that have been raping Nigeria without a condom since 1960, they will rather pick offence when you tell them the real situation of things in the same country that has kept them in darkness and poverty, let them continue to pray and enjoy the rubbish going on in Nigeria while the country sinks further as one of the unsafest country to live in the world grin

all this explanations don't mean anything , you go to the church to seek spiritual upliftment, you accept God that therefore makes you a Christian and you go to church , the topic says the church makes children grow happy which is almost non existent in third world countries that go to church the most.

Happiness exist everywhere. It's relative. People commits sucide in advance nation. Again spirituality consider things from inside out. Not outide in.
