Former presidential aide, Reno Omokri has said that poverty is the reason why many Nigerians are religious and Churchy.
According to him, when these people relocate abroad and become a part of a system that works, they lose their religiousity.
Omokri disclosed this in a post he shared on his social media page, he said poverty changes one’s perspective.
He wrote: poverty is why many people are religious and Churchy. When these same people relocate abroad and see that their prayer request are easily met in their new location, they lose their religiousity. Religion is a reaction to poverty.
Faith is a more reliable judge of Godliness. That is why after salvation, Christ taught more about wealth because without wealth, your spiritual health is at risk.
Poverty alters your perspective you make enemies out of innocent people.
You blame ancestral curses and village people for your poverty. When in fact the problem is your location, which is over populated and underfunded. And fear of enemies, rather than love of God drives you to church”.
