In recent times, armed men have attacked the convoy of former President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, killing some of his aids but he managed to escape.
Note: nobody ever got offended that his bullet proof car or God almighty saved him, in all, the glory was ascribed to God and his goodness was seen that the former president was alive, no one could even say much about those who lost their lives, just because the boss escaped death.
Thereafter, President Muhammadu Buhari’s convoy was attacked and his aids were injured, even though reports had it that no lives were lost.
Thereafter, Senator Ifeanyi Ubah’s convoy was attacked, leaving some of his aids dead, even though he also managed to escape, remember” no one made an issue out of all these incidents.
Until a man of God got caught in the same web. And now most people are reacting with so much contempt.
Some say, he has used those who lost their lives for ritual.
Others are angry that he even said his life is in the hands of God and no man can kill him, when a bullet proof car saved him, thereby making mockery of the priesthood and the God of the priesthood.
Others said it was his sins that are now pursuing him, trying to find him out, and that he must pay dearly for his wickedness.
Maybe Jonathan, Buhari and Ifeanyi Ubah are now said to be holier than the Apostle.
Someone even asked, why would they even risk their lives for him?
Well, they were working for their money, it wasn’t for free, they died in the line of duty.
Just like Nigerian army dying when doing their job.
Here’s my major concern, the way same Christians, the society at large and fellow now treat pastors these days is quite troubling.
IT’S INDEED A PITY THAT THE CHURCH IS THE ONLY INSTITUTION THAT IS KNOWN FOR KILLING HER WOUNDED SOLDIERS.
Even if on this matter, the Apostle still stands justified until proven otherwise.
Let’s assume that the Apostle assassinated, and he’s no more, what would you stand to benefit?
Apparently because of the internal fight and division amongst us.
We took our issues outside and now the world is trying to help us publish it.
Preaching a united heaven and having a divided church on earth.
These things are not healthy for the body at all.
Every other person should be okay, apart from pastors, every other person should be protected, apart from pastors and their families.
Every other person should be considered first, before a pastor should.
May it not be what am already suspecting.
That is, let it not be that Satan has filled the hearts of some, who are always set to release Venum against the church instead of love, care and protection.
