WHY ARE NIGERIAN PASTORS OVER PRAISING POLITICIANS?

I was just wondering that cozy relationship some Nigerian pastors have with some politicians might make them to mortgage their conscience. Sunday Mbang has been an avid supporter of Obasanjo, so is Enoch Adeboye of RCCG. Do you not think that some of these pastors might compromise their beliefs and philosophy in order to have a photo opportunity with the president? Rev. Sunday Mbang officiated Obasanjo's 70th Birthday Thanksgiving Service. Bishop Oyedepo was also in attendance.

I was reading about Chimaroke and found out that Anglican Bishop of Enugu is a member of governing council of Renaissance University,   a private university founded by Chimaroke.

Can these religious leaders really speak truth to power if necessary? I am not saying that they should adopt Tunde Bakare's approach of seeing and prophesizing evil, but I think that religious leaders should maintain some level of decency and spirituality when dealing with politicians.

TV01,

My point was concise and clear. If you have a problem understanding simple issues, let me recommend that you go read Romans 13 and then come back to re-read my submission. This parrying around and knotting yourself in issues you little understand has grown out of use.

Good morning.

Mr pastor/president,

Christians have a civil responsibility to their political governments. If they do not, that should be a 100% clear STAY OUT! And as such, we don't owe no civil or political government any tax - which would be contrary to what is stated in Romans 13.

Politics and religion (man-made) are the cause of all the worlds conficts.

Listen carefully. The kind of person who gravitates towards the grubby world of politics is the same sort who finds a home in the murky waters of man-made religion.

They are brothers in arms and it was only ever a matter of time till it become open and has always been very clear to those who see. The ho' and the beast. What a lovely couple

i've always believed a pastor should be politically neutral and leave the criticisms for the critics. a pastor should pray for his country and give spiritual advise when called upon to do so, not political analysis and false prophecies. so any pastor that involves himself with politics, i regard as one that doesn't understand his calling, or may not even be called at all.
