Matthew 16:18 And I say also unto thee, that thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

Psalms 120:7 I am for peace: but when I speak, they are for war.

So many people blinded by hate these days. Somebody steps up and says he wants to regulate private relationship between churches and followers and foolish folks are applauding it. One day they will tell you what to eat and what not to.     The antagonism of the Administration of the present Nigeria government of President Muhammadu Buhari has become too glaring for all to see.  Recently the government     Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), had on August 7 signed into law, the Companies and Allied Matters Bill, 2020. The Bill the National Assembly has passed, which replaced the 1990 CAMA.

CAN president

The Christian body described as “satanic”, section 839 (1) and (2) of the law which empowers the supervising minister “to suspend trustees of an association (in this case, the church) and appoint the interim managers to manage the affairs of the association for some given reasons.”  CAN in a statement signed on Thursday by Adebayo Oladeji, Special Assistant on Media and Communications to CAN President, Rev Samson Ayokunle, noted that the Federal Government has declared war on the church if it moved on to implement the law.

The statement was titled, ‘Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) rejects CAMA Completely.’

The statement read in part, “The leadership of the Christian Association of Nigeria rejects out rightly the Companies and Allied Matters Act, 2020 that was assented to by President Muhammadu Buhari recently.

“The law is unacceptable, ungodly, reprehensible, and an ill-wind that blows no one any good. It is a time bomb waiting to explode.

“While we are not against the government fighting corruption wherever it may be found, yet we completely reject bringing the church, which is technically grouped among the NGOs, under control of the government. The government can not control the Church because of its spiritual responsibilities and obligations.”    Over 40 percent of Nigerian Christians don’t attend church at all or attend irregularly. Over thirty percent of Nigerian church goers don’t pay tithe. Over sixty percent of “tithers” pay lesser than ten percent of their income as tithe, while many still pay irregularly. I still wonder how a little set of faithfull tithers are being crucified for Nigeria’s underdevelopment.      Orphanages, universities, primary and secondary schools, football clubs, hospitals, skill acquisition centers and many more are what Christians, churches and tithers have invested in, so we should applaud them for their selfless contributions to nation building.  CAN queried, “How can the government sack the trustee of a church which it contributed no dime to establish? How can a secular and political minister be the ultimate authority on the affairs and management of another institution which is not political? How can a non-Christian head of government ministry be the one to determine the running of the church? It is an invitation to trouble that the government does not have power to manage.

It advised the government to “face the business of providing infrastructure for the people. Let them focus on better health provision, food, education, adequate security employment, etc. The government should not be a busybody in a matter that does not belong to it. The government does not have the technical expertise to run the church of God because of its spiritual nature.”
“If the government is bent on imposing a law on us which the entire Church in Nigeria is against, they have declared war on Christianity and the agenda to destroy the Church which we have spoken against before now is coming to the open more clearly. If you cannot give us good amenities of life, we would not allow you to take away our liberty to worship our Maker,” it vowed.

CAN, therefore, called on Buhari to “stop the implementation of the obnoxious and ungodly law until they exempt the religious institutions from it” and “return the law to the National Assembly for immediate amendment.” A Nigeria man describes the moves as worrisome, saying, The Government of the Day should be apply wisdom , Take off their Hands from the Church and not make a Mockery of themselves..

It’s Un biblical! Unscriptural, Demonic, Occultic and Satanic..

The Government of the Day should apply wisdom, Take off their Hands from the Church and not make
a Mockery of themselves..

The Presidency should be well advised!
You don’t start a War you cannot finish.

It’s Foolishness to think or try in any Form to fight against the Church of God. 

It Foolishness to start a Fight against your Creator, a War you Cannot Finish.

It’s Foolishness to think or try in any Form to fight against the Church of God. 

it is mischievous and irresponsible to have included religious places, knowing fully well that Islam doesn’t really operate a formal organization, they did it to unnecessarily subjugate the church. They will surely fail.
