Church can bail Nigeria out of recession – Bakare | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper f


Pastor Tunde Bakare, said the current economic recession was an opportunity for the Church to bail out the country through God-inspired economic principles

Bakare, a Senior Pastor, Latter Rain Assembly, Lagos, stated this on Saturday in Abuja.

He spoke on the theme: “ The Church and Economic Recession , “ at the 14th anniversary celebration of Foursquare Gospel Church.

He said that the church had the ability to bail out nations, influence public policy through God-inspired economic principles and strategically position human resources to implement its principles.

Bakare, however, said that the church was yet to rise to the height mandated to it by destiny to bail out nations and to lead them to God’s will.

“ I am convinced that the recession currently being experienced in Nigeria is an opportunity for the Church.

“Therefore, I declare to you that the Scripture is about to be fulfilled in your hearing as God is stirring up the church to take responsibility for the destiny of Nigeria.

“ That is why we are gathered here today to talk about the church and economic recession.

“ If the church is also reeling from the impact of the recession, we must admit to ourselves that this is against the Scriptural pattern.

“ It is the best of times to take the tenets of the faith beyond the four walls of the church building to the marketplace and the policy roundtable, “ Bakare said.

He said that the nation’s economic recession was largely self-inflicted which could have been avoided, saying “unfortunately for Nigeria, our biggest boom experience fell into the hands of an unprepared leadership.“

  1. MUMU! If you know the scripture, you will released that in the last days "times will be difficult"
    Its happening everywhere not only in Nigeria. Prophet of doom, you better start telling you gullible followers the truth.
    Teachers of LAWLESSNESS!

  2. Where in the scriptures was it written that the church of Christ has anything to do with the economy of a nation? When it is written that Righteousness exalts a nation..... Christ is coming for a church without spot or wrinkle... All that is happening are signs of the end of age and even the church can do nothing about it! So stop preaching what is impossible just because you wanna find favor to spite your stomach. Preachers should learn not to twist the scripture to suit their belle.

  3. Yes, churches can bail us out of recession if you contribute a portion of your extorted monies to boost the economy and create employment. British missionaries founded schools for free, built roads, promoted education, and provided economic incentives to people. What have today's churches done? Fuck members and create rules on how children should pay tithes. Rubbish!

  4. El matosky, u don't have to be insultive to express your dissenting view. He has only aired his view and opinion. It will be better and more civilise to air your own view. Thanks
