As you may know, October 1 is round the corner and it is expected that there will be another edition of "The Platform Nigeria."
The Senior Pastor of Covenant Christian Centre, Pastor Poju Oyemade, has used this opportunity to explain in a blog post why the church is behind the intiatives.
Here is what he has to say:
Over the years, many people have asked me why we do The Platform. A good number of people thought maybe there was an underlying political motive. Let me state categorically; there wasn't then and there isn’t any now.
The Church i.e. the Body of Christ consist of different members with diverse roles united under the headship of Christ. As the human body has various organs carrying out specific assignments so does Paul say there is diversity in the Body of Christ. (1 Cor 12: 5,6)
5 And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord.
6 And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God, which worked all in all.
