Deeper Life Church blames Christians for high level of corruption in Nigeria
￼ The Deeper Christian Life Ministry has blamed lack of true Christianity for the level of corruption in the country.
This was stated at the end of a four-day programme to mark the end of its Easter retreat, tagged, ‘Heirs of the Kingdom’, which had its Founder and General overseer, Pastor William Kumuyi, in charge.
The camp commandant, Pastor Andrew Umoru speaking on behalf of Pastor Kumuyi urged Christians to stop embezzling money in public offices in order to reduce the level of corruption in the country.
He said, “The message was clear on how to be heirs of the kingdom. It goes beyond believing in Christ or attending a local church. It is about having faith in Christ and genuine repentance; it’s about having a new life; a life that transforms society.
“We have heard a lot about corruption in Nigeria.
But we know that true Christianity brings the difference. And that was what the retreat was all about it.
It was about teaching believers to shine as light and be different from the unbelievers.
“They should not embezzle money in their offices and they should live according to the testimony and have good consciences when they are in authority, and deliver a different path to society.
” The Lagos moderator, Pastor Bayo Oyeyemi also added that the problem of insecurity in Nigeria could also be addressed if people returned to God.
