The doctrine of Materialism is one of poverty, sin
What is Materialism – a form of philosophical monism which holds that matter is the fundamental substance in nature and that all things including mental state and consciousness are results of material interaction
When the love and honor for material things takes over your spirit, it leads to a mess
A tendency to consider material possession and physical possession as more important than Spiritual value
In this part of the world, because of the poverty that is growing, we consider material possession and physical comfort more important than spiritual value
🔵That is why a woman who does not have a husband by age 30 is in trouble
🔵That is why a man who does not have a male child is in trouble
🔵That is why a man who does not own a house by age 50 is in trouble
🔵That is why someone who does not own a car is in trouble
In developed countries the system works
When people work they expect to get paid.
A man who has labored must not go to bed hungry
Only in a country like Nigeria do people work and then PRAY that they get paid!
If you work and they pay you, you will not need to pray for it.
Nigeria has become a country where you have to pray for what is your own
A lot of us are suffering under useless doctrine.
People use money to do business with God, so God can pay them back
There is nothing wrong in having material wealth, but there is a lot wrong with Materialism
The Christian gospel today is Materialism
In the beginning Salvation was preached but soon they replaced it with idols
Today Mammon has been established as a god in churches
98% of churches in Nigeria receive people based on wealthy appearance
The church favors one person over another
Churches need to focus on people’s knowledge of the word and not on outward appearance.
Churches are doing the opposite of what the scriptures tell us to do
This is the first time we are informed that Christ is dressed in fine clothes.
They put a royal / elegant robe on Christ
The reason was simply to mock him as king of the Jews. They also made a crown of thorns to put on his head
Those who wear expensive clothes live in palaces
Christ was a celebrity and so they cast lots for his clothes
There is nothing wrong in wearing expensive clothes, however, when a preacher wears such expensive clothes, he sends the wrong message
Christ was rich but for our sake became poor so he can send the right signal
The poor hate the rich and the rich hate the poor.
Today you will see churches for the rich and churches for the poor
All the believers were united in heart and mind
If your religion tells you that God is about to bless you with money, it’s a lie
We are supposed to bless each other
All of you who say “I pay my tithes and it works for me” so answer this, Christ did not pay his tithes, so what was working for him?
If Christ did not collect tithes from any believer, what was working for them
Christ & his disciples did collect tithes
Christianity is not about what works, it is about what is scripturally true
God can only be worshipped is spirit and in truth
Not everything that works is because of Christianity
Look at the world, the non Christian countries are prospering
What works is sharing! Learn to share with your brethren
