Nollywood actress, Chioma Grace Ifemeludike has placed her two cents on the idea of people preaching Christ to poor people.
In a recent post on her Instagram page, Chioma Ifemeludike exclaimed how people expect poor people to be righteous when they know they are struggling to even make ends meet and she described this as ignorance.
She wondered how people who have no job, no food, wear rags, underpaid and people who live in the slums without any physical solution in sight to give their lives to Christ when they know that someone somewhere is stealing their collective wealth.
She further wrote;
The reason why we are just religious without really being Christ like(christians) is that we are not telling ourselves the truth. How can you preach salvation to a youth who graduated since 2015 without a job, no government support, starts a business but can’t sustain it because the burden of taking care of his parents,siblings and himself is on the neck of a 23 years old! How???
In a society where Children are now bread winners because one greedy polithieftian has looted their parents pension… How do you preach repentance to the victims and not the culprits??? How do you convince a youth not to get involved in crime while he watches his mother die of an illness that money could have solved???
How do you preach to a 15 years old girl child to stop prostitution when she watches hunger beat her younger ones mercilessly??? How!? Until we identify they people who have shortchanged our lives and values we may be preaching to the Wrong congregation…
Can true salvation be gotten in a rotten society??? Hoodlums, yahoo yahoos, bandits, terrorists, kidnappers, militants, run girls association , baby mamas club etc. Are they results you get after looting our common wealth for over 60years…
