Is 700,000 Naira Too Much For Foursquare Gospel Church to save a child?

Last year some children going for the children's camp at ajebo camp foursquare had an accident, 2 died and 1 is in the hospital in a bad shape and needs just 700,000 naira for surgery! For over a year now the child is still in that same state just because of 700,000.  Foursquare nigeria is 700,000 naira too much to save a life of this young one?

I wouldnt be surprised either. Pastor has to save money for his own Gulfstream. All accident cases are reffered to the Prayer squad t pary for speedy recovery.

^^ I don't know what the law is like in nigeria, but in london here if I enter a premises, say Shell Oil's office and I have an accident ol boy I don become millionaire be that. Especially if there is no sign warning me of any danger where the accident took place. I once worked at an engagement for Shell and before we even entered they gave us a full lecture on Health and Safety to cover their asses. Apparently they get sued a lot, some people enter with the sole purpose that when they get there they must suffer some accident or the other.

Now, I know Image will just lie and twist and turn to ensure that these business centers are not culpable. For instance, no one said that the boys had the accident on the way to the church camp. They were already in the church camp. If my child gets an accident in school you can bet your bottom dollar that I will sue the school. If I have an accident by no fault of my own in a bank, you're damn right that I will sue the bank.

Accident which is the fault of the church? Are you thinking at all or just typing. I wouldn't want to portray insensitivity to this kid's condition but please be objective. Is it the destination of a person before an accident that determines who foots hospital bills, or we just want to be sentimental because the kid was coming from or going to a church camp.

By this logic, students who have accidents going to or coming from school should look to the school for bill footing. An accident on the way to bank means the bank should be responsible. Accidents traveling out means maybe the embassy or government should be involved. See giving is noble and everyone should give, church or no church but don't be unnecessarily sentimental.

^^^so someone who has an accident which is the fault of the church shouldn't expect the church to the bll for that person. So what about the two boys who died should the church pay for thier burial or just shun them to coz of money?

While it's very easy to point hands, doing isn't. Like for example, some have already commented criticising the said church. But how many of them has it even entered their heart/mind to help the said kid? Not to mention deciding for/against it. Or you think its beyond your scope of giving? How much are you willing to donate as a person.

It's not my duty to declare the church guilty or innocent, but one should ask some practical questions. Questions like how AWARE is the church of the child's condition, how much has been gotten from the parents, relatives, neighbours, helpers of this kid, does the surgery guarantee the child's recovery etc. It's more than shouting church should pay, should pay. The child's care is the responsibility of the parents or family, relatives, neighbours before the church. Soon every member of the church that has an accident or hospital bill will be in front of the church gate for help. Be practical, talk is cheap.

when you take into consideration that the main purpose of churches nowadays is to make a profit what do you expect? Unless its the pastors own son why would they spend such amounts of money on him when its much cheaper to just pray?

Times are gone when churches take the responsibility of caring for the sick and down trodden even if you are not a member. Today's churches are nothing but business empire. What will paying N700,000.00 for the child profit the church? The GO of the church will prefer spending N1M on staging a crusade he knows will yield some returns to spending such an amount on charity.

Indeed, we are in the last days my brother.
