So I was doing "blog ashawo" earlier and I saw news that elicited different emotions and reactions in me.
"Northern Christians break away from CAN, Revert to NNCA"
I first went from hian*, read a bit and in my usual fashion, I went Oghene biko* because I really need God to help us.
Let me digress.
I currently live in Jos and it was here I attended the popular RCCG first. I'm Foursquarian by birth (I'm still forced to attend when I'm home), I attend His Treasure House naturally (My favourite church). All I want to do is listen to the undiluted word of God.
Back to the point, during my service year, it was so obvious that there was no love amongst us even in church. Different forms of jealousy. Choi!!!
Fast forward, I'm still there. Same church bought a land and we were already building on this land. A letter came from the Ministry in charge of land allocation. The letter "claimed" The Governor needed the land. The Governor denied any form of interest in said land. Then they said the land belongs to "The Catholic Church" of Plateau state. Lots of argument cropped up, a go ahead, then a shocker!!!
The youths of the Catholic Church destroyed all structures already erected on the land.
Shocked was an understatement.
No love between churches kwanu..
Then I saw that news about Christians dividing into North, South and what have you...
What have we done wrong?
When I fill forms now, I skip religion because I don't have a religion.
If you tell me Christianity, it's Life for me. It's not my religion.
If I must have a religion, can it be love? Can we return to the basics? All commandments in my Holy book is summed into two; both summed into one- LOVE.
Can Love be the religion again?
