Addressing Religious Extremism In Christianity

14

Proverbs 1:22 “Fools, how long will you love being ignorant? How long will you make fun of wisdom? How long will you hate knowledge?” Whenever the word "extremism" or "extremist" is mentioned almost everyone thinks about Muslim or even terrorists but only few people knows that there are religious extremism ravaging Christianity as well and that's what I'll be addressing today. Extremism in Christianity is just as bad as it is in other religion. Unfortunately Christianity has been reduced to the lowest possible level since Jesus ascended over 2000 years ago. Christians no longer really care about what God said in his word the bible but swallow everything their so called "Men of God" are saying especially in Africa. Nigeria has the top 5 biggest churches on the planet but we're the most afflicted. We have become so blind to the ways of God that anyone who truly tries to explain the truth contrary to what the pastor is saying is being abused and seen as the antichrist. The mere words of pastors have almost replaced the bible. This is called RELIGIOUS EXTREMISM. Extremism has found its way in the Christiandom and unfortunately it is worst among Black Africans. Social media is littered with videos of pastors doing terrible things to members, walking on their heads etc in the name of deliverance and when you talk about it they'll say bible says we should not judge. There's no atrocity in the world that has not been perpetrated in the church. This extremism has made the so called Men of God feeding fat on the gullibility and foolishness of congregations and unfortunately it'll only get worse. A lady once told me that unless her pastor "sees vision" and approve of her relationship she'll never get married? Everytime she opens her mouth, it's always "my pastor said this or that" not what the bible said or what God says. Men should avoid these kinds of women at all costs because it's the pastor that'll eventually determine what happens in the home. How on earth does this lead to the kingdom of God. This is why I don't blame anyone who identify as atheist anymore because the quality of Christianity has deteriorated to the minimum. Women are by far the most victims of this scourge and I laughed hard when I saw the video of a woman demanding her offering from her church . Until we take a deep breath and look at the kind of Christianity we're practicing we'll continue to practice extremism in the name of Christianity.
