IF YOU ATTEND AFRICAN/NIGERIAN CHURCHES YOUR CHANCES OF MAKING HEAVEN ARE VERY SLIM!!

In my humble opinion, if you frequent Nigerian/African churches on a regularly basis, your chances of ever entering heaven talk less of "smelling" those pearly gates are very slim. Honestly most of you who attend Nigerian/African churches know what I am saying is true. How many instances has church been dismissed, and immediately people step outside the church door. The gossipping starts, this person talks about the pastor, the other person talks about the pastor's wife, another person talks about the new car Pastor has started driving. When done gossipping about the pastor, most members start gosspping about other members. "OMG, did you see how short  Sister Nneka's skirt was today? And she sings in the choir o, why is she shaking her booty for the pastor to see?" "Did you know I saw Brother Ola at the club yesterday acting a fool, he was grinding and grooving with this prostitute or that prostitute".

And with that same mentality, those same members will thank their God and head to their homes. I have witnessed this same thing time and time again, we africans are notorious for being "gossipers of the highest degree". We will gossip about anything, and am sorry to say most of the gossipping take place in our churches. If you honestly disagree with me, visit any Nigerian/African church and you will see what I am talking about. Pastors to are not even exempt from the gossipping, na their own worse pass. And please can somebody tell me why in most Nigerian Churches you go to, the church must always have an offering for "Building Fund"? They might have a huge ass building for the church, but they'll still want to build a bigger one? Na wa o.

Anywayz I will leave you all with this movie, about the arizona preacher praying for Barack Obama to die.

y r u anti church? make u leave religion alone

EDJ said...

I dont think he's anti church, he just thinks very hard about things. I do understand what he's saying though. Sometimes the hypocrisy in naija churches never ceases to amaze me.

Bubbles said...

I think you think WAY too much about religion
you need to give it a break hun
but I do agree that sometimes Nigerians can be very hypocritical

Devine said...

ha ba....not all of em are like that
in fact cus of statements like urs, i didnt go to church 4 a long time
what id say(not just to u, but cus its becoming sm tht er1 is talking about) is that, if ur in a congregation that has ppl like this, love them and help them!
Tell em off, Put the Devil to shame!!!!

Nice Anon said...

Lmao! I am merely laughing at the title of your post.

Controversy said...

Am not for reigion soleez.
I do believe that it contributes a lot to human misery.

Thank u EDJ.

Divine lol wat u mean not all of them are like that..98% of them are like that, nigerians can worship their God and everything..

Bubbles i'll give it a break.DId u see the video about the arizona pastor? What did uthink?

miss.fab said...

That Arizona preacher is hilarious to me. He doesn't know that Obama has his own odeshi! Ha! And people like him make me sick. So is he Republican or did he support Bush? That means he supports racism and murder then. Aren't those against God's wishes????

Anyway... lol at your post. All I'll say is that this happens everywhere, not just Nigerian churches. Also, what about those people who go to non-Nigerian churches but go home to have sex with their boyfriends, cheat on their wives, etc etc? Those are against the Bible, are they not? It shouldn't make any difference where you do the sinning... all that matters is that you sinned!!!

.... My bad for this mini post. Lol.

Lady X said...

I'm laughing at the picture hee hee! Anyways you should my post titled The End is Near hehe!

Larom said...

This is a new twist to blogsville...

Looking forward to reading your views even though, I don't necessary agree.

sunnyside said...

i dont really know about gossips in church because i dont stay back after church to... what did you call it again "gossip".

how did you know anyway? do you stay back?

couldnt wactch the video, didnt play on my laptop.

Controversy said...

Loooool hahah sunnyside i stay back well well.
I mean why i no go stay back, my momsy God bless her heart is a mentor to some of this people. And to my beautiful knowledge my momsy never gossips and i remember the one time she did, she hella apologised 2 the whole family about it.
But yeah sunnyside i did stay back to PARTAKE of the gossipping.

@ Miss Fab
The arizona preacher is stupid, i do not know where he claims 2 have gotten his calling from but he is a very daft individual. And to think that ppl actually go to his church. U christians really need to step your game up.

@ Larom.
Thanks... I appreciate all views lol, i am not particular inclined towards ppl who agree with me all the time. I like havin discussions in which i disagree with other people.Welcome.

@ Lady X.
I will check it out lol.

Tay-mee said...

Lol ok I am laughing because I have experienced everything you said. I know some churches that even distribute party invitations DURING service. *not mentioning any names*

HOWEVER I have to say that it is not just African/Nigerian churches, it happens in churches everywhere. I have also been to lots of non-african churches where this happens. People will always be gossips however it is unfortunate that they choose to take it to the church. A select few who are focused on God will make it to heaven.

Controversy said...

Lol Tay-Mee u can try to mention some church names o.
Someppl were tellin me that Redeemed Church of Christ is one of them where this things happen. But it is definitely not only limited to redeemed.

Nwanyi said...

lol..the pastors have slimmer chances of entering heaven..when they go about persuading people that if they speak gibberish they are holy Christians..

Controversy said...

@ nwanyi.
Serious slimmer chance lol, but see this is what I do not get. Nigeria has the largest population of christians in Africa. Why oh why with all those prayers said on our country's behalf has nothing changed? I have a theory that those prayers can never get answered because the people saying them are not "serious people"

marilyn said...

u did not LIE AT ALL.why una dey talk like say una no dey go church.all these things dey happen steady.........

Controversy said...

Marilyn.
Na true u talk.
But honestly where all these pastors dey get their heavenlyy calling from?

Original Mgbeke said...

LOL. No be small controversy...you be real trouble maker. It isn't just limited to Naija churches sha o, even African American churches do such things. Ah well, salvation is an individual thing and as long as you know your heart, then don't be worried about what everyone else is or isn't doing.

Tigeress said...

Gosh what church do u go to? lol!! I kinda agree with ur view(s) but at the same time i think its relative.

Penelope...! said...

Lmao!! This is sooo acurate!!! I have never read anything so true. Its happenin everywhere! esp the pastors true true...na dier own worse pass!

Penelope...! said...

But like sum1 alredi said...free this religion matter. But i still love that ure so funnY! lol.

Controversy said...

@ Original Mgbeke
Indeed salvation na personal matter o, but no be martin luther talk say "How can one claim to be christian if one does not worship where the children of God worship?

@ Tigeress
Personally I stopped going to churches. I am not part of any church @ the moment.

@ Penelope
Na true talk nah, gotta point out the truth.

AfriKim said...

A pastor I know once stood on the podium, rained curses on a female member of the congregation and ordered everyone to say Amen. True story, but what can I say?....it's Naija

Controversy said...

NaijaBabe said...
