Of recent, popular On Air Personality, Freeze, has been very vocal about the activities of pastors in Nigeria. The media personality turned actor believes that some of the Nigerian pastors are occultists who do not preach the message of Christ but feed the public with what they want to hear.
In a recent chat with Saturday Beats, Freeze said although he has said a lot about the activities of these pastors, he still has so much more he wants to say but is scared for the safety of his loved ones.
“I am not scared of their doltish fire by fire prayer, I am not scared. If they send hired assassins to me, I could be worried so I try to keep my security tight. I don’t remember attacking any of the pastors’ loved ones. I am scared for my loved ones and that is why I have not shared half of the things I know about these pastors even though I have shared a lot of things already.
“My father once told me to be careful because many of these pastors are juju men and they would ‘do me juju’. Many of these pastors are occultists and they know. Some of us that have a discerning spirit know. They are tricksters. One thing I can guarantee you is that they are not of God,” he said.
Ever since he began the campaign against pastors, many people online have labelled him with various names ranging from him being an atheist to being an anti-Christ. When asked if he believed in God, he was quick to say that he does not only believe in God but he also preaches the message of God.
He said, “I do not only believe in God but I am a Christian, biblical scholar and I also preach the bible. Most of our pastors in Nigeria have deviated from the teaching of Christ and established their own fraudulent doctrine which is a total departure from what Christ taught us. I think it is high time we stood up and told ourselves the truth. The true message of Christ is love, repentance, healing and forgiveness. That is the basis of Christ preaching. Christ does not care about your success or the kind of car you drive, it is not his business.
“Obviously, this line of preaching cannot work. Countries that are less religious are doing better than us a hundred fold. We cannot get to where Dubai is in the next ten years if we try to be like Dubai but we are not even trying. Instead of building mega cities, we are building mega churches; instead of building mega factories like the Hyundai factory in South Korea, we are building mega churches and we are going back to the Stone Age. That is why we see a witch in every young child and we believe that poverty is brought upon us by the devil.”
