LET US START DEALING WITH THE CORRUPTION IN THE RELIGIOUS SECTOR
CHRISTIAN PRIVATE SCHOOLS CORRUPTION
Though none of us can doubt it that private schools is a challenge and extremely expensive to maintain.
But, no one forced the Christians to dabble into what they know that they cannot maintain on the ground of charity.
“For which one of you, when he wants to build a tower, does not first sit down and calculate the cost to see if he has enough to complete it? Otherwise, when he has laid a foundation and is not able to finish, all who observe it begin to ridicule him, saying, ‘This man began to build and was not able to finish.” Luke 14:28-30 NASB
OTHERS HAVE DONE IT BEFORE
It’s not that some people have not done this type of project before, and they did it successfully that it even benefits all humanity and not only Christians.
WHAT IS A PRIVATE SCHOOL?
It’s a school supported by a private organization or private individuals rather than by the government for business purposes.
In Nigeria, it’s a school established for some groups of people to show others that they are richer than them.
But for Christians it is a school established with the heart to take away the burdens from the less privileged people.
And that is the reason why they called it (mission schools).
It’s not a news anymore that all our “missions schools” here in Nigeria, Especially the ones founded by Bishop Oyedepo, Pastor Adeboye, Pastor Matthew Ashimolowo and many other Christian are not only adding more burdens to the society at large, but they’re sustaining their schools with the proceeds of corruptions and many other ungodly means.
If anyone found my statement as false, please open your classrooms door to some few people with integrity to come and find out the caliber of people that are in your schools.
Take away the notion that “Oyedepo, Adeboye or other Christian leaders are helping the poor”. No! They are not.
They’re servants that are sent on errand with free will offerings to the humanity but they turned around to be enriching themselves with the money.
The people with Christ mind contributes the money for the job to be done with excellent not for them to use it as another way of income to feed their family and friends.
There is absolutely no one that will not give you an excuse if they are confronted with corruption life style.
Other private school may take a loan to build their schools for business purposes and for that reason they’re justified for their actions.
But the Christians schools that built theirs on free will and “God said” offerings, it’s not only wrong but a sin if you’re oppressing the poor.
I know of covenant university firsthand that it was built solely with the proceeds of rich and poor born again people.
I have said this before, I will say it again with authority from Above if covenant university and all other Christians schools are not beneficial to the poor people at large they’re in wrong business and they need to apologize to God and their people for deceiving them to contribute money in the name of Christ to their false project deceptively. And urgently start making restitution to the individuals.
It’s a warning this is not to disrespect anyone.
“Pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself unstained by the world.”James 1:27 NASB.
