Idol worship, bane of Nigeria’s progress —Pastor Andrew

GENERAL Overseer of Fruitbearers’ Chapel International, Pastor Samuel Andrew, has likened Nigeria’s backwardness and lack of sustainable development on idol worship, adding that God’s provocation induced by idol worship ends in poverty and indirectly insults God’s creation as regards reflecting the glory of God.

Pastor Andrew, who made this known to newsmen during an interactive session, stated that “idol worship linked with culture will bring any nation down.

“When Nigeria accepted Africa and assembled them in the country for FESTAC 77, it was from that point we lost grip of the kind of glory we carry.”

He admonished Nigeria to go back and make pronouncements leaving all the hide-and-seek secularity, adding that “God will rise up and take charge to bring back the glory.”

Speaking on the church’s programme to address Nigeria’s restoration, the cleric stated that “no nation can be secular and make it with God. Hence we are coming forth with the meeting tagged “Let Fire Fall!” (War Against Idol Worship) which will span between November 23 and 27, 2016 in the church auditorium in Bariga, Lagos,” where salvation, deliverance, healing and total restoration will be at the helm of affairs.”

Expected to minister at the event are Pastors Lai Bamidele, Josiah David, Godwin Olive, Samuel Andrew, Evangelist Bola Are Comfort Aboderin,  Fruitbearers’ voices and other guest artistes.
