Nigerian singer/songwriter and all round entertainer, Charly Boy, has gone in hard on Christianity, especially the latter day kind currently being practiced all across his country and in Ghana as well.
According to the singer, people are being duped and cheated in the name of ‘God’, with political and legal backing.
In a ‘thesis’ on religion in Nigeria, especially Pentecostalism, he argues that under the name of God, defrauding others, cheating them and finding ways of chopping their money has been legalized.
Not only are people losing their money, he argues, but they are also being taught harmful doctrines which is making them unable to live fruitful lives.
Read his comment below…
“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 monetization of people’s ignorance. It remains the only legally and politically accepted movement completely based upon systematic fraud, deception and cheating.”
