In today’s world, the average Christian is bamboozled, bombarded and influenced by many things. The power of influence in today’s world has made many Christians to fall by the way side. The need to follow biblical principles becomes more imperative today as we are in the world that the lines between what is good and bad is constantly blurred. Apostle Courage Igene, the Senior Pastor of All Nations Church, and the President and Founder of Joshua Generation School of Ministry, speaks his mind on the state of the nation.
WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THE REMAINING PART OF THE YEAR, I MEAN LIFE AFTER COVID?
Life cannot be the same again. So much has shifted. Many have accepted the status quo as the new normal. So it will be what every individual made it to be. As for me personally, It seem i operate in a different atmosphere not the system of this world.
I didnt stop our services and won’t. I’m still doing my crusades across the country. The world dont dictate to me how I should serve my God.
PEOPLE, EXPECIALLY CHRISTIANS ARE KNOWN FOR THEIR TOLERANCE AND ENDURANCE. THEY EMBRACED THE LOCKDOWN AS A MEASURE TO CURTAIL THE VIRUS. IS THAT REALLY THE SOLUTION?
No. The lockdown is not the solution. Check states and nations that didn’t lockdown, there are almost no cases. South Dakota in America had only 6 cases and there was no lockdown. How do you explain that? Tanzania had no lockdown and they are virus free today. How do you explain that? We need to examine things well before believing everything they shove down our throats.
WHAT HAS COVID-19 TAUGHT YOU AS A CHURCH LEADER?
It has taught me that many fathers who we looked up to in the Body of Christ were just figure heads. They have failed God and The Church. It taught me that many who claimed to know and love Jesus were just giving Him lip service. Imagine Christians and Pastors seriously advocating that the House of God be shut down. So where is your faith you have preached all these years? I thought you always said God is there at your church or ministry? So did God flee your church now because of coronavirus? Its appalling and shocking! Imagine a Pastor saying he wants to use his church as Isolation center. What a shame!!! I thought the church was a healing center…the heart of God bleeds!
HOW HAS YOUR MEMBERS COPING EXPECIALLY AT THIS TIME?
Surprisingly, they have been very strong. And have overcome the initial fear the enemy tried the put in them. As i constantly showed them God’s word and our constant stand on Psalm 91:10,11. God has preserved us all. No death and no cases whatsoever. A strong preservation anointing is on us.
