THE TRUTH YOU KNOW SHALL MAKE YOU FREE
By Uzo Ihuka
The average “Nigerian Pastor” won’t talk about Usain Bolt or Serena Williams.
They won’t talk about late Dora Akunyili or Tony Elumelu.
The “Nigerian pastor” won’t talk about Steve Jobs or the young people in Silicon Valley reshaping our world.
They won’t talk about young American scientists spending endless hours in search of a cure to diseases that are predominantly in the Tropical African region.
The “Nigerian pastor” won’t talk about Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie or Ben Okri.
In every corner of the world, there exist young men and women who have defied all odds and became successful through hard work, creativity, and dedication… so then we know that the truth you know shall make you free…
The “Nigerian pastor” won’t talk about them……neither will he ask his members to emulate the spirit of these individuals.
He would rather talk about sister Agatha who got a job she WAS NOT THE MOST QUALIFIED because she prayed and fasted in line with their church program.
Brother John who became a millionaire because he used all his salary as a seed in the church.
Papa Miracle who he laid his hands on and 3 of his children got admission in the university.
Mama Esther who paid her tithe and her business started growing everywhere across the nation……no business plan, just boom, everywhere.
This has led to a new breed of mentally lazy young people who now see God as a rewarder of mediocrity.
“Some of my pastor friends here may not be too comfortable with this post, but I must drop the Bomb”…

To the “Nigeria Pastor”, the only way to prosper is by paying your tithe and sowing seeds in the church. So they will never talk about those who have through hard work and dedication placed themselves in the world map.
No……the “Nigerian God” only blesses the first 70 people that rush to the altar to drop N100,000 as seed.
The “Nigeria God” abhors creative thinking and diligent in your job, He only gives to those who sow seeds and offerings……and those who shout “I am a millionaire” every morning and do nothing the rest of the day.
You want God to come down and bless you just because you are going to church to shout “Daddy, I receive it”
My dear, You are a joker!
Can someone tell all the jokers that irrespective of our faith or religion, God’s blessings follow you once you start using your talent and become useful to yourself and to the society at large?
No doubt, there is Seedtime and Harvest time. but Proverbs 4:7 says► Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.
Hard work Leads to Real Miracles.
