Nigerian Entertainer, Charles Oputa, known widely as Charlyboy has said Pentecostal Churches have paralyzed Christians and have encouraged laziness rather than hard work.
According to him, Christians have been made to believe that there is someone who will come and miraculously, all their problems will be taken away.
Sharing a video of a Pastor praying for his congregation, Charly Boy wrote; “I Decree now that my people are dying to believe in something, especially if it’s magical because we have the messiah complex. Somebody out there, will come sooner than later, to make all our problems disappear. Na so. That is why we are paralysed and corrupted by fear, we can’t even stand up to injustice. We are waiting for God to come rescue us.
“Pentecostalism has promoted miracles over hard work, materialism over spirituality. Even if one goes into pastoring on a pure and innocent level, you can’t help but be corrupted by easy money when you sell hope and create enemies all over.
“It is a cool way to make a living and make decisions that bring in the cash. Pentecostalism na modern-day commercial enterprise garnished in the cloak of religion with deception and exploitation as its foundation.
“Their goal na the complete monetisation of people’s ignorance. It remains the only legally and politically accepted movement completely based upon systematic fraud, deception and cheating.”
