“Poverty is why many people are religious and churchy,” – Reno Omokri opines in his recently released nuggets on his page. Nigeria is a popular country in Africa filled with diverse religions, ethnicity, culture, languages etc. Unfortunately, even after years of obtaining her independence, the country is still far behind when it comes to the use and availability of modern-day infrastructures. According to Reno, it is this inability to access these modern day infrastructures that have turned a lot of people to be religious.
“Poverty Is Why Many People Are Religious And Churchy,” – Reno Omokri’s Opinion
Reno Omokri is a human rights activist and a political analyst from Nigeria. He was also a one-time Aide to a former President of Nigeria. Daily, he releases Nuggets on his social media handles that will reshape the lives of his audience for the better. So, according to the recent nugget he released which is about the conflict on religion, he said:
Poverty is why many people are religious and churchy. When these same people relocate abroad and see that their prayer requests are easily met in their new locations, they lose their religiosity. Religion is a reaction to poverty. Faith is a more reliable judge of Godliness. That is why after salvation, Christ taught more about wealth because without wealth, your spiritual health is at risk. Poverty alters your perspective. You make enemies out of innocent people. You blame ancestral curses and village people for your poverty, when in fact the problem is your location, which is overpopulated and underfunded. And the fear of enemies, rather than love for God drives you to church.
Wow! How true is it then that “poverty is why many people are religious and churchy” as opined by Reno Omokri? Below are some screenshots of fans reactions to the said post.
