Should Pastors Carry Placards?

@ marvix and poster, I have followed this thread and read all this arguements for every one contributing to it.

Well, I'm sure we all want a better najia and that is the crux of the matter!

You all have a choice, either you sit and pray and do more sitting and complain, even when others who know better begin to act! Or, you pray and act,

Know that FAITH without WORKS is DEAD!

Guys, do well to read ur bible and know and especially your English dictionary dictionary to understand want protest means!

I believe that other pastors should have the courage to join Pastor Tunde Bakare in this campaign instead of telling their people it is well when it keeps going from bad to worse!

to all the men and women who are joining the Pastor in this campaign, I salute u all!

We must Save Nigeria for us, for our children and for our children's children, this is what the poster, marvix and their friends should be looking at! Not who is bearing the touch for the emancipation of the people.

God is using Pastor tunde Bakare to launch this campaign and I totally support him.

That is correct, for speaking out against those evil practices, I really praise him.

The role of the church in is to speak out in times like this but in Nigeria, the reverse is the case! they keep asking us to pray but, how many times have they offered themselves up like Pastor Bakare is doing now.

There is no gainsaying that no matter how u complain, the situation will remain unchanged until u take one step.

Can u imagine the calibre of people linning up behind him? Ordinarily these group of Nigerians will have nothing to do with him, but once u are on the path of truth, people of integrity will find u out.

Most of the 'leading' Christian lights have been silent on the 9ja project for far too long.

Although I've heard some people say they all cannot be vocal like a Bakare and prefer to speak privately with this leaders.

While this is true, that is also chameleonic seeing people should know where you stand and should be able to hold you accountable for your words and to your action.

I thought it was another Bakare bashing thread again but lo and behold I'm wrong.

@ Question: dESMOND TUTU AND mARTIN LUTHER KING brought change to their society non violently.

I've heard Bakare speak on the SNG and though he's been very controversial in some of his past pronouncements, I believe he's spot on regarding the SNG.

A church that cannot influence the society in which it finds itself should be discarded.

Run through history and see that though the Dark Ages was propelled by men misrepresenting God's Word, the freedom and subsequent developments that pervades Europe and America have their foundations in God's Word.

Kudos to SNG!

Is that what you call grace?That dungeon.

Don't get me wrong what i am trying to say is that nigerian pastors are in contest as bad as the so-called leaders,they are in the business for their personal and greedy gains not like the story of jesus and john reflects.

Did they die in vain? Jesus also died for the same course and without that death, you and I will not be enjoying the grace we are enjoying today? There is nothing wrong in dying for what is right and for what is going to make life better for all

no de fear my guy! we will all die but what would u tell generations yet unborn that you did in future?

According to the bible story,John the baptist deid as a result of condenming the wantom actions of the leaders of his time,

Jesus too they said died as a result of opposing and exposing the oppressive rules of his time as well as man's injustices against man.

So what should be the deal for the so- called men of god in nigeria openly and aggressively standing up to ills in nigeria?Oh,i just remembered,they are part of the oppressive elite group too.
