Apostle Suleman Condemns Comedians Joking With Jesus & ‘Shaku Shaku’ Dance In Church!

– Apostle Suleman condemns acts by comedians using Jesus Christ to crack jokes

– Takes stand against certain dance moves in churchGeneral Overseer of the Omega Fire Ministries,Apostle Johnson Suleman has condemned the acts by some Nigerian comedians who take delight in using Jesus Christ to crack jokes.

Apostle Suleman queried why no Comedian uses Mohammed to crack jokes. According to him, Comedians will be killed if they crack jokes with Mohammed.

He also took a swipe at Christians that do not stand up in defence of clergymen as they get dragged online.

While preaching in his church in Edo State recently, Apostle Suleman said:

“No regard. Imagine comedians will be cracking jokes and using Jesus for joke, calling Jesus Bros J and a pastor doesn’t go to the altar and give him sound slap.

“Can you joke with Mohammed like that? They will kill you,” he said.

In another video shared by Award winning music producer Wilson Joel on Instagram, Apostle Suleman condemned the popular dance moves being exported into the church. He was specific about the new dance called ‘Shaku Shaku’. He condemned the church members and pastors joining in the dance saying, it did not start in the church. He is of the view that the church should create its own dance moves and export it to the world.

“Most of us have been carried away by what is popular. Even in the church, we improvise and bring in popular things into church, thinking we can give Christianity swag. People are dancing and moving their hands… they call it Shaku… what they saw outside. You are spiritualizing and churchilizing shaku in church. You are a shame! You are a disgrace. Leave them to dance their dance! Dancing shaku in church, some pastor join them, some choir members and urshers… It didn’t start here. We should look for a dance that started in church and export it outside…”

The prolific music producer Wilson Joel who shared the post said he has some reservations but did not comment further.

Saudi Arabia agrees with Vatican to build churches

-Top Islamic nation, Saudi Arabia has agreed to build churches for her Christian citizens

– To this end, an agreement was signed by the secretary general of the Muslim World League and president of the Pontifical Council for Inter-religious Dialogue

– The Muslim country’s new found openness with the non-Muslim world is said to be as a result of her desire to reduce dependency on oil resources which is its major economic driver Saudi Arabia has reportedly entered into a joint agreement with the Vatican to build churches for Christians living in the officially Muslim nation, Breitbart reports. Reports says the agreement was signed by Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdel Karim Al-Issa, the secretary general of the Muslim World League and Cardinal Jean-Louis Tauran, president of the Pontifical Council for Inter-religious Dialogue in the Vatican.

Breitbart, quoting Egypt Independent newspaper reports that Saudi Arabia’s newfound openness to and socio-cultural cooperation with the non-Muslim world was as a result of her desire to reduce dependency on oil resources which is its major economic driver.

According to the agreement, a coordinating joint committee will be established comprising two representatives for both sides to organize future meetings.

It was also reported that the meeting of the committee will be held once every and will be alternated between Rome and a city chosen by the Islamic World League. Reports also says Saudi Arabia is the only country in the region without a single Christian church.

The country was also said to have embraced Islamic Wahhabism, which bans all forms of non-Muslim religious activities.

Tauran, in an interview with the Vatican News newspaper was quoted to have said that he was pleased by what he described as ‘the beginning of the rapprochement’.

“It is a sign that the Saudi authorities are now ready to give a new image to the country,” he added.

Meanwhile, NAIJ.com had reported that the Deeper Life Christian Church had completed its main auditorium located at the church’s headquarters in Gbagada area of Lagos state and it is valued at over N5 billion (about $16 million).

The 30,000 capacity church project which had gone on for about 13 years is said to be the fourth largest completed church auditorium in the world.

The question is, Can Nigeria ever be united again?

 

Shocking: No!_I_Cant_Marry_a_Pastor_She_Said


Yesterday was Sunday, I was in church and everyone looked glorious… And the service was just heavenly,
my pastor was delivering the message with so much passion…His words were hitting me right where I sat,
suddenly my stomach did a flip flop… Oh….No!..Not in church… I couldn’t control it.. I immediately
dashed into the toilet and had a wonderful time there… but I could bet I was hearing sobs… Sobs coming
from the back of the toilet. After cleaning up, I followed the sound and guess who I met, Daniella, my
pastor’s beautiful 6 year old daughter crying and Cherish, 9 years trying to calm her down..
I tried to find out what was wrong, even though it took a long time before they voiced out. They were
hungry… Daniella said ” Aunty when I grow up, I will never marry a pastor, so that I won’t be hungry… My
Daddy is a pastor and we are always hungry, but my friend’s daddy is not pastor and they never go
hungry. Even mummy is hungry, we didn’t eat yesterday.”
I couldn’t tell how tears flowed down my face, and God’s word hit me like an arrow in my heart ” We have
sown spiritual seed among you, is it too much if we reap material gift from you”…1 cor 9:11.
How could I explain to this girl’s that being a pastor was a noble work and that the reason why they were
going hungry was not their father’s fault but the fault of we the members…. We were not following God’s
order… A lot of us eat delicacies and forget the levites who were interceding for us before God… We forget
men who have sleepless nights digging the scriptures to get out secrets to move our life forward… The
HolySpirit technically raised my head up as I saw the array of executive cars owned by the members which
was a big contrast to the rickety car my pastor drives… Now I understand why my pastor’s wife wore
clothes that were not fashionable.
Friend, it’s high time, we started taking the material needs of those who are blessing us spiritually
seriously… Would it be wrong to personally placed your pastor on a monthly allowance… Would it be
wrong to support your pastor in paying his children’s school fees…
Anyone who blesses you or ministers to you spiritually, make it a duty to bless them materially…
Our pastors are hungry….
1 cor 9:11.
God bless you… Bless a minister today…. And see how God will bless your ways… Remember a soldier
who defends a nation and fights for a country does not have to do a side job in other to meet his needs….
The Army provides for him and his family… Let’s provide for our spiritual soldiers…. Have a blessed week.
PLEASE SHARE ON… OUR PASTORS HAVE NEEDS… DON’T BREAK THE CHAIN….They need the change.

#Traimi.com celebrate you.
