'Pardon Rev. King', Christian Youths Beg Buhari & Lagos State Govt

Nigerian Youths for Christ, has appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari and Lagos State Governor Akiwunmi Ambode, to commute the death sentence passed on the founder and General Overseer of Christian Praying Assembly, Rev. Chukwuemeka Ezeugo, a.k.a Rev. King.

The youths, who rose from an emergency meeting in Calabar, Cross Rivers State, said their call was based on the biblical injunction on giving an offender an opportunity to repent. They contended that in spite of complaints of irregularities and denials by the police during the course of investigating the case, Rev. King had gone through traumatic ordeals that must have made him to repent and turn a new leaf.

“It is on record that until his conviction by different courts of our land, Rev. King maintained a studied position of not guilty. From all indications, members of the public had already passed death sentence on him without considering whether he was guilty or not.

It is, therefore, our considered opinion that in those years he was made to pass through the judicial processes, he must have communed with his God and punishment for sinners only lies in the hands of our creator who knows all about the affairs of men”, the youths said.

“Moreover, we should take cognisance of the well known lapses in our judicial process and even at that, many developed countries of the world are shying away from outright condemnation of suspects to death and Nigeria should not be an exception. Our position in this matter should not be misconstrued as bordering on dogmatism. It is a prayer for forgiveness based on the facts surrounding the case”.

Northern Christians Warn Emirs Against Child Marriages

The new chairman, while addressing journalists, said it was the belief of the Christian body that it was high time traditional rulers in the region, especially, those who harbour Christian minors in their palaces stopped such act.

Christianity and Nigeria’s Miracle Pastors

Nothing – absolutely nothing – will change if we refuse to act wisely or back our prayers and fasting with positive and proactive actions. Nothing will change if we refuse to speak truth to power or demand for accountability, responsible and honest services from those who manage collective resources on our behalf, and who are already handsomely rewarded for these services…Sometimes, I wonder how the followers of these so-called men of God take their flamboyant leaders seriously! How can this year be your year, when all you see on the streets are hopelessness and decay?

A prophet was preaching to his congregation sometime ago. At a point he started denouncing people who had accused him of living a flamboyant lifestyle and who also said that he was a false prophet who cannot suffer and die for the sake of the gospel. In his words, “I will not die for Jesus because Jesus already died for me. I don’t need to suffer because Jesus already suffered for me – and I will not be poor because Jesus lived and died poor so that I would be rich”. He told his followers how he had bought several expensive cars, and how his admires had donated tens of thousands of dollars to
