Why Christianity Especially Needs To Be Regulated By The Government by Nobody: 11:28am On Jun 10, 2019
sad As a born again Christian who is meant to speak the truth at all times, i commend governor El-rufai for this bold move. Christianity especially needs serious regulations from authorities nationwide.

In every street of the federation especially in the south, there are minimum of 5 churches per street yet our ways and morals are steadily declining. We are a bunch of religious bigot but UnGodly people. Many fake pastors are springing up daily giving fake prophecies and commercializing the gospel of our lord Jesus. The principles of true Christianity has been bastardized by the money conscious hawks parading as pastors.

All they preach is money and prosperity, the teaching of love, tolerance and soul winning has been abandoned for commercial Christianity, Yet we wonder why our society is morally bankrupt. We Christians are not tolerant of other religion. We forget Nigeria is a secular state and the Nigerian constitution allows for freedom of worship. Any seperate beliefs from ours is considered evil and our intolerance is likely to spring up religious crisis if not checked by the government.

Our extremist views are the reasons why a pastor will just wake up and set fire on a traditional worshippers shrine because he considers the shrine as Evil yet we hypocritically condemn such if a church is attacked by non Christians. What happens to the concept of live and let live? Why can't we Christians mind our business for Christ sake? Why do we threaten any one with a contrary view and belief with Hell fire and destruction?

An Ogun, IFA, Sango or other forms of traditional worship is automatically hated and labeled Evil spirit by we Christians yet we pretend to preach love and tolerance. The bible admonishes us to love our neighbors as ourselves but all we do is pray for the destruction of contrary views and beliefs shouting Fire fire fire up and down. What is the definition of religious extremist? Look in the mirror my fellow Christian brothers.

We are a selfish bunch who doesn't care about the convenience and health of our neighbors as long as we worship in noise pollution. How do you explain blaring loud speakers in the middle of the night in the name of night vigil when others are sleeping after a long day's work? Must everybody be a Christian? Why can't we look inward and be considerate for Christ sake and stop the massive noise pollution associated with our mode of worship in this part of the world? Why do we portray God as a deaf and dumb who must be shouted at before our prayers are answered? Can't we worship and pray in minimal noise or perhaps silence?

We Christians need a massive reorientation to restore sanity because our present ways and values is not Christ like. I hope the Federal government and other states emulate kaduna state government and pass laws to regulate religious rascality in churches and mosques. Enough is enough sad

Lol..Is it only a Christian that can observe and condemn the disappointing shortcomings associated with the church today especially in Africa? I don't think so. If something is true,don't try to distort it with the entitlement bias of " Christian or not Christian ".

The church is made of humans.

Correct your own short comings first before attempting to remove the log from other people's eyes.

I'm in no way trying to remove the log from anybody's eyes. I can only tell you where the logs are but I'm not fit to remove such heavy gigantic logs.You can do that by yourself when and if you realize the logs are truly obstacles to a much clearer vision.

Please tell me when you see huge logs in my eyes so I can remove them.I'm sure it has nothing to do with the points the Op mentioned since I'm neither a Christian nor an institution.So I don't need to remove the long in my eye before telling my brother about the speck in his eyes cos they are not similar obstructions.

Why don't you incorporate such a commendable mentality into your religious system by advocating for the valid points you deem rational and are not an attempt to damage or degrade your religion instead of telling the OP he's not a christian and as such whatever his saying doesn't count whether it's useful or not.

If govt wants to regulate any religion it should be the one that takes lives, uses govt fund for its activities like ram buying and worship centre construction or even blocking of road by its members when praying.
Overzealous Christian pastors may randomly destroy shrines but how is that comparable to the above atrocities.
