Pastor Adeboye Impersonator Scammed my Father


A young woman has shared her story online (Lailasblog) telling how a man impersonating a popular clergy scammed her father. She said her pensioner dad was scammed by a man who claimed to be Pastor Adeboye of the Reedemed Christian Church of God. She said after her father made the payment of his widow's mite, he informed her and she felt uneasy about it. She discovered there were many accounts on Facebook that bore the name Enoch Adejare Adeboye and she could not recognize the real one.

She advised Nigerians to be more careful in their association with people in the quest for miracles or prayers especially on social media.

Below is what she shared:

Muslim Refugees in the UK are Converting to Christianity







Muslims seeking asylum in the United Kingdom are converting to Christianity at a parish church in the English Midlands. A U.K. publication reports that three to four Muslim migrants accept Christ each week at St. Mark's church in Stoke-on-Trent. Some say they were first turned away from local mosques even though they were homeless and needed help.

On one Saturday afternoon, 15 refugees were baptized at the church. Rev. Sally Smith presides over the congregation. She has allowed asylum seekers to stay in her own home, provided them meals, given them clothes, purchased shoes for their children and even made sure their medical needs were met. 

The church is filled with donations of what's needed to start a new home. Members provide food parcels to the refugees twice a week. Language lessons are even offered and, if needed, the Muslim migrants are given bus fare.

Refugees who have made a dangerous trip across several continents end up being dropped off in Stoke. They learn by word of mouth that Smith will lend a helping hand.

She said the church also becomes a family to those who find themselves alone.

"With the mass movement from across the world we have got people of faith coming into secular society and faith really matters to them," Smith said. "And they are not too bothered, as bothered as we may think, about how that faith is expressed."




Colleagues Laughed at me when I gave my life to Christ - Nollywood Actress Eucharia Anunobi



Veteran actress, turned Evangelist, Eucharia Anunobi in a recent interview opened up on the discrimination and challenges of being a born-again Christian.

She shared how her colleagues reacted when she gave her life to Christ. She said “ I remember years ago when I gave my life to God, my colleagues were laughing at me. ‘Your mates are busy doing aristo, your mates are busy seeing governors, your mates are busy going to the clubs in Victoria Island, Ikeja, and everywhere, you sey na church you wan go”. 

She also said “They used to say that ‘something is wrong with Eucharia’. ‘Can you imagine with all her degrees, and doctorate in waiting, na to go church?’ But today, by the grace of God, where I sit they can’t sit; where I go they can’t go. I sit with governors and presidents not for aristo, and not for someone to take me to a corner of a room to sleep with me.“

Eucharia came into limelight for her role in the movie series ‘Glamour Girls‘ in 1994 and has gone on to star in over 90 movies including ‘Abuja Connection‘ and ‘Letters to a Stranger’

Bishop Removes Seminary Priests Over Gay Sex App Claims



The Catholic Archbishop of Dublin removed trainee priests from the seminary in Ireland over claims on the use of the gay sex app, Grindr, and failure of the authorities to properly investigate it.

The move is the latest scandal to hit the Catholic Church in Ireland, after the reports of child sex abuse stretching back decades and of church leaders' complicity in covering them up. 

Archbishop Diarmuid Martin said a series of anonymous allegations about a gay sex culture at the Maynooth seminary, where over 50 students are training to be priests, had been compounded by the college authorities' failure to investigate. 

There were also allegations that students who had spoken to the authorities had been dismissed from the seminary. The president of the seminary, Hugh Connolly, said no investigation had taken place because there had been no official complaint.

My statement was an advice, not an attack on Buhari - Rev. Francis Mbaka



Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka, on Saturday advised President Muhammadu Buhari against marginalisation of any part of the country in his appointments. This was contained in a statement released by his media aide, Mr. Maximus Ugwuoke, in response to media reports that the cleric attacked the President in a recent message, where he lamented the level of hunger and hardship in the country. Mbaka said that he only admonished the President against marginalising parts of the country in his appointments.

The statement reads, “Fr. Mbaka equally advised the President on being careful about how he appoints people to prominent positions, so that no region will appear marginalised, as happened in Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation board and charged the President to make sure that those around him are not misguiding him.

“He advised the President on human empowerment and making sure that those who worked for him (Buhari) during the election ought to be empowered – as one good turn deserves another.”

“Fr. Mbaka merely reinstated the obvious sufferings that Nigerian are facing (which even the President himself had at points acknowledged and sued for patience and perseverance) and advised the President on the ways to tackle it, that is, by engaging economic gurus and listening to good advisers.

“He pleaded the President to begin a war against hunger, as many are dying hopelessly.

“He stressed that if the hunger, anger and danger continue, Nigerians may not vote for him again, as they would mistake him for the cause of these maladies while in fact he is a solution.

Catholic Leaders Reprimand Joe Biden, a Practicing Catholic for Officiating Same Sex Marriage

Vice President, Joe Biden, officiating a gay marriage between Brian Mosteller and Joe Mahshie 

On Friday, leaders in the Catholic Church were furious that one of their own acted like love was more important than the condemnation of homosexuality.

The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops posted a statement online reprimanding Biden for what he did, while it didn’t mentioned his name, seemed to clearly rebuke the vice-president for the public action opposing the Church’s teachings, Religion News Service reports. Find the statement below:

“When a prominent Catholic politician publicly and voluntarily officiates at a ceremony to solemnize the relationship of two people of the same-sex, confusion arises regarding Catholic teaching on marriage and the corresponding moral obligations of Catholics. What we see is a counter witness, instead of a faithful one founded in the truth” wrote Louisville Archbishop Joseph Kurtz, president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. The statement was cosigned by Buffalo Bishop Richard Malone and Miami Archbishop Thomas Wenski. 

Biden received public permission to perform the ceremony though he wasn’t acting as a representative of the Catholic Church.

According to a statement, the grooms, Brian Mosteller and Joe Mahshie, asked Biden to marry them, and Biden obtained a temporary certification from the District of Columbia. BuzzFeed reports that Mosteller is the director of Oval Office operations, and Mahshie is a trip coordinator for Michelle Obama.
