My Personal Sacrifice To RCCG
This post has been seen 1796 times.
The entire internet has been agog with various opinions on it.
But the official RCCG response to the fiasco … was even worse than the original offense.
Their response to a Parish of theirs asking congregation members to donate as much as a full month’s salary termed “Abundance Sacrifice” or a “Divine Sacrifice” of 1 million naira with a note stating that Houses, Cars and Land is accepted, was this….
“We would like to state that should anyone give towards this project or any other, let him or her give out of conviction and NOT compulsion but because God loves a cheerful giver.”
A cheerful giver?
Conviction and NOT “compulsion”?
Is RCCG serious? Is this a joke?
Churches are no longer satisfied with taking the 10% before tax (lest I forget), they are now coming for the whole thing. And using “sacrifice” as the excuse to make themselves richer.
And the sad thing is that the people that will fall victim to this rubbish are the poor and uneducated. People who can’t tell the difference between the word “conviction” and “compulsion” as contained in the official RCCG response.
But let’s be honest, at the end of the day, nothing will happen to the RCCG brand. Its too strong, too powerful, too well respected and too politically connected.
Instead people will find bible verses to justify the SACRIFICIAL SACRIFICE nonsense.
Today I mentally sacrifice my common entrance result because it has failed to give our nation enough common sense needed to see through religious bull shit!
