Nigerians are some of the most religious people on the planet. On any given Sunday and indeed several days during the week pews are filled to capacity and church buildings are bursting at the seams, hard pressed to accommodate the teaming faithful. In most churches the crowd in the over-flow sections out-number those in the main building.
The question is: Why is Nigeria in such a terrible state? Why do we top the charts when matters relating to crime and corruption are being discussed? If only the religious activity would translate to moral soundness, social justice and equity!
In fact I would advice anyone with a weak heart or prone to depression to avoid the news altogether. They could very easy be tipped over the edge!
"Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity. "
This is the only way to stem the tide of wickedness in our country and avert the judgement of God.
