Former Presidential Aide, Reno Omokri has opined that the reason why most Nigerians are churchy- and religious is because of poverty, Oyogist.com reports.
In a post shared via his social media accounts, The human activist ackvaerred that most Nigerians when they travel abroad and see that most of their prayer request are easily met, they lose their religiosity.
Here is what he wrote;
“Poverty is why many people are religious and churchy. When these same people relocate abroad and see that their prayer requests are easily met in their new locations, they lose their religiosity. Religion is a reaction to poverty. Faith is a more reliable judge of Godliness. That is why after salvation, Christ taught more about wealth. Because without wealth, your spiritual health is at risk. Poverty alters your perspective. You make enemies out of innocent people. You blame ancestral curses and village people for your poverty, when in fact the problem is your location, which is overpopulated and underfunded. And fear of enemies, rather than love for God, drives you to church”
