The way Linda Ikeji posted it:
On Sunday, February 7, 2016, at the Mountain Miracle and Liberation Ministries, a.k.a Liberation City, a dead child was prayed back to life in a suspense-filled movie-like scenario. The six-month old child said to have been ill for weeks was brought to the church by her parents for prayers. Unfortunately, the child gave up the ghost as soon as they arrived the church.Her frantic parents eventually wept and pushed their way through to the podium where the man of God ministered to other people, and he immediately took the child from them and prayed fervently. Then he dropped the child on the altar and commanded her spirit to come back and the child moved! The congregation exploded in tumultuous praise as the child continued to move and even later drank some water!
In August of last year as well, the same scenario played out in Kogi State, at the Chris Okafor World Outreach Ministries Crusade venue, in Lokoja. God used Dr Okafor to bring the child in question back to life! By the grace of God, Dr. Chris Okafor is known for accurate prophecies and the unusual ability to proffer solution in every occasion.
Yesterday news of the baby raised from the dead in Liberation City circled the Internet. I deliberately numbed my mind and shielded it from forming any opinion. I strongly believe in miracles. Also being a spiritual christian means that you have faith and faith has been defined as a conviction in things not seen (Hebrews11:1). What this means is that even in the face of illogical or questionable situations, you believe and not ask questions. This is sometimes difficult for educated and enlightened persons. Either way, I chose to look the other way and not think. However today I paid a visit to Linda Ikeji's blog and my numb mind began to thaw and question. Many on different platforms believed this to be a staged miracle, many praised God for His greatness, I have no opinions here.
But a sponsored post? "Sponsored" connotes money changing hands; cash (or its equivalent) was paid for this to be put up on public media. That's an advertisement, right? You know, even in law it's unethical to advertise, so it's probably my legal background that's got me feeling some type of way. Or not? I'm confused guys, is this ok?
