RCCG reveals what Nigerians are doing that’s inviting poverty into their lives

The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) has slammed Nigerian Christians who are poor as sinners and cursed by God, claiming all Christian adherents should be rich, accusing some of falling into penury because they fail to pay tithes.

One of the church leaders, a professor and pastor of RCCG, Solomon Bello, was quoted in a statement to have said this on Wednesday while delivering the lead paper at the Business Summit of the Redeemers Men’s Fellowship of the LP71, Divine Connection Zone.

Mr Bello, the pastor in charge of Lagos province 71 (LP71), described prosperity as “a birthright of Christians while poverty is a curse.”

“Poverty is not for any true child of God. As long as men continue to sin against God, they will continue to struggle,” the Redeemed pastor claimed.

Mr Bello, who is also a lecturer at the University of Lagos, listed the major factors that brought about poverty as sin, laziness, curses, ingratitude, extravagance, and procrastination.

“Cursed and blessings are the results of the obedience or lack of it on the part of a man. The Bible informs us that poverty is a curse. It was the resultant effect of man’s separation from God in the Garden of Eden,” the RCCG cleric further asserted. “As long as men continue to sin against God, they will continue to struggle. It takes two to succeed, you and God.”

On gratitude and obedience, Mr Bello said that any Christian who knew how to obey and show appreciation to God was destined for great heights.

“An ungrateful man cannot go far in life. Gratitude will open the doors of breakthrough and success to you at any time,” he claimed. “Appreciation of God’s goodness leads to an appreciation of your blessings and worth before God and man.”

Mr Bello also mentioned that appreciating God would lead to success in life.

“It is the shortest cut to victory. If you want the heavens to be opened for you, if you want to be made whole, then you must be ready to appreciate Him. When you return to give glory to God,” the Redeemed pastor asserted. “He will return to make your life worth living. Divine upliftment comes in the place of gratitude. Every disobedience has a retribution attached to it. When you obey the commands of God, blessings follow after, but when a man disobeys, the blessings are withheld.”
