Christians, especially church leaders in Nigeria now serve money as their god, Rev. Samson Ayokunle, the President of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has lamented.
Speaking at the ongoing virtual convention of the church, CAN president stated that sexual immorality, gluttony, and financial impropriety are now prevalent in churches due to indiscipline.
“The church is in a state where lack of discipline has led to many instances of sexual immorality, gluttony, financial impropriety, laziness, court cases, etc,” he said.
Rev. Samson Ayokunle pointed out that unbelievers and Christians can no longer be separated.
He said that the behaviour of Christians has led to the name of God being maligned, with Obscene dressing and all forms of impurities happening among God’s children.
Ayokunle cried out that most people who call themselves Christians cannot be trusted for any noble assignment.
“There appears to be no difference between them and the unbelievers,” he said.
“Money, in particular, has become the god of some (if not many) Christians, including Church leaders! What a shame to the Church!”
