BY ISAIAH BENJAMIN, Kaduna –
Worried by the reoccurring spate of killings going on in Nigeria as a result of agitations, bombings, and kidnappings, the chairman LAWNA Territory and Vice President of The Apostolic Church Nigeria, Pastor Emmanuel Awojide has described Nigeria as a country full of religious, but ungodly people.
Speaking with newsmen at the 82nd annual convention, Kaduna area of the church, shortly after a sermon on the theme, “Come Thou and All Thy House Into The Ark”, Pastor Awojide noted that corruption in the country was already surpassing that of the days of biblical Noah where corrupt people were washed away by the Great Flood.
He however expressed the hope that the country could be better if the people and the nation could be Godly rather than being religious and put a stop to evils in the society.
“Nigeria and Nigerians are religious, but are yet to be Godly because there are so much killings and destruction in the land.
“Corrupt Nigerians must repent or else the wrath of God and the law of the land will catch up with them.
“But ungodly people will perish eventually in hell fire, and Godly people will make heaven.”
On restructuring, Pastor Awojide disagreed with those calling for the restructuring of the country.
He said God will be angry with Nigerian leaders if they allow the country to be divided, pointing out that it is against the wish of God for the country to be divided.
He also assured Nigerians that there will be no bloodshed in 2019 as against insinuations that the general election will be bloody.
“But as men of God we will continue to pray against evil, and we believe that God’s mercy will come upon the country and the people. Therefore we must respond to God’s hand of mercy to avoid evils”.
