That said though, I do notice your "not any other name". Are you asking that Christians be literal, perhaps?

Odd! Though, if one reckons as some atheists might, that a "Person of God" is a person who does evil, not so odd I suppose. But despite the view of we atheists, evidence cannot in any way conclude that being a pastor is synonymous with being a person of the devil! If the person of God is a person who does "Good", and by that I mean a person who understands the workings of God, why can that person not only be a president, but even a good president?

I personally do not think that Nigeria would progress until a person who can say, "let there be light" effectively, rules. There is after all no doubt that darkness is upon the land today, or might I be wrong? I do not also think that Nigeria can progress until a selfless person, as opposed to the current leaders that we have who are so much more interested in filling their own bellies, rules, and who can we claim to be the most selfless person we know mythically or otherwise, than he they call the Messiah Jesus Christ?

Of course, it should be noted that the Christ I speak of is not one who would claim that everyone should worship him, for if that is what is meant, then it must be noted that the Christ of the Gospels never said anything of the sort! Such as one would be a member of Boko Haram, for sure.

I sense a huge contradiction here. In the past many men of God have been leaders of their countries, from David, Ezekiel, Constantine, to many Christian Emperors of Europe and Asia. These men of god have been guided and advised by god or prophets of god. So why do you think such a model could not be achieved today? Have you lost confidence in the power of god to get some order here on earth?

Could not god arrange for a christian or Pastor President to only arrive at "good" decisions? If he cannot, why call him all powerful?

1. Not part of their training.

2. Not part of their job description.

3. A good worldly leader sometimes needs to make decisions that are not spiritually correct e.g. going to war, signing off on the deaths of certain people, secret service issues and all.

4. Being a pastor is a spiritual matter not an administrative matter.

Why would a pastor not make a good president?

I agree.

Most of them are too dependent on advisers, which isnt always a good thing.

@poster

Most of the pastors you used as example are crooks and imposters. There is no way they would make a good leader talkless of president.

If he kept his faith separate from state affairs he could make a good president. . . . . if he knew what he was doing, IMO.
