My mother continued writhing on the floor while the pastor continued praying. The church was silent now except for the praying pastor and my wheezing mother. I couldn’t take it anymore. If it were up to the members of this church, she would be dead.

“Show your neighbor your offering,” I heard the pastor yell from the podium. Okay so this must be a joke, I thought. But no, it wasn’t. At this point everyone had their envelopes opened to the person sitting next to them. My body language said clearly: “There is no way in Heaven I am going to do this.”

I went to a supermarket on a Sunday morning to buy some groceries. While putting my items away in the boot of my car, one marketer who was distributing fliers said “Good morning, please give this to Oga or Madam.” I was shocked. I replied, “Oga or Madam? I don’t understand.” He apologized and explained how…

Dear Tunji, I’m so sorry for you to go through this. There’s no easy way to say this so I’ll spit it out or rather write it out. I imagine you have one of those confused smiles on right now. God, I really wish it hadn’t come this. I’m in love with a woman. It…

Karim was in high spirits. “Now, THIS is church”, he thought to himself. He had grown bored of his home church and had begun to resent the manipulative eschatology offered there. His irritation always started when Sister Nkechi Ariri took the microphone to lead the praise and worship session. She was almost always the one who…

“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God” (Rom 3:23). So, I was having a conversation with an old friend the other day, and this issue about the fact that we are all awful sinners, and none of us is good, came up. It is actually something I have an issue…

“Sacrilege! Someone has urinated on the Holy Spirit. The Holy spirit is aggrieved…,” Prophet’s thunderous voice heralded, reverberating down the valleys. I would start by saying I am a Christian, a strong Catholic, even though some people would say I am no born again. I was born and raised as a Catholic. I was baptized…

I have seen people get angry because they were not accorded the necessary respect especially when addressed in the church setting without the proper accolade and title. Atimes, I wonder why people bother so much about a trivial thing like that? But is it really trivial or am I just looking at it in a…

Sometime ago on this platform, I published an article about Christianity in Nigeria. It led to a debate in the comment section which, unfortunately, strayed from the main topic, but managed to gain considerable attention. The main issue was about the much-abused financial benefits of Christianity in Nigeria and how certain clerics capitalize on the…

I just started living in my own apartment and one rule I have for friends who come over during weekends is that everyone MUST go to MY CHURCH on Sunday. I hardly consider this rule strict or constricting as most of my friends are Christians and my church (which I am very proud of, but…

People tell you to stop looking for love in the wrong places. They tell you to meet people in better places. They tell you to try the church instead of clubs. LMAO!!!! The guys in the church are most likely the same guys you partied with last night at the club. There really isn’t a…

I’m single so I don’t have any business in a premarital class of any church. But then it’s still baffling when recently I was discussing with some married colleagues and they seemed clueless when it came to child sex selection. I mean I was talking to people who had been married for a few years…
