CHRIST HAS BUILT HIS CHURCH, DON’T BE THE GATE OF HELL BY GBENGA BABALOLA
I don’t appreciate people whose major ministry is to write or sing about the “mess, weakness, sinfulness or sleepiness” of the Church as they normally quote it, as if there is no testimony of God’s move through His labourers in the nations, as if satan has completely won the battle over the Church, as if the labour of Jesus for His bride “the Church” on the cross is in vain.
Actually, it is a bad son that discovered a mess in his father’s house and match to announce it at the market square, such was the reason why Noah cursed his grandson. David said;
“PUBLISH IT NOT IN GATH, PROCLAIM IT NOT IN THE STREET OF ASHKELON, LEST THE DAUGHTER OF THE PHILISTINE REJOICE, LEST THE DAUGHTER OF THE UNCIRCUMCISED REJOICE”.
Unfortunately, several are publishing rubbish about the Church with destructive criticism. How can you publish the disunity, the prayerlessness e.t.c of the Church and still invite sinners to come and be part of the family you have used your pen through ignorance to destroy.
This piece is not to paint that the church is not facing challenges but the challenges of the church should be handled in the church not on social media. You hardly read about people from other religion writing against themselves not even herbalists.
I’m not blind to what the church is going through especially in Nigeria, even as I write now my heart is very heavy for the church but we must take caution lest we join the enemy to wound an already wounded soldier. The social media platform can be put to other productive use.
