Prophet Sam Adebayo

“But those who crave to be rich fall into temptation and a snare and into many foolish (useless, godless) and hurtful desires that plunge men into ruin and destruction and miserable perishing.” 1 Timothy 6:9 AMPC.Who you look at determine what you look like. What you hear forms what you think, what you think determine your character and your character determines your destiny. The source of money ritual that has pervades  Nigeria like COVID19 is “get rich quick syndrome.” Get something for nothing mentality. It starts from home when parents do not properly groom their children. 

A child brought what does not belong to him or her home and parents failed to discipline the child, it sends a belief that what he or she does is right. When mother always fights father over money before the children, it creates an unwholesome desire in the children mindset. The same thing happens in our religious centre when pastor or imam only embarrassed and praised those who brings money to the Mosque or the church. When the preaching is only centred on money and miracle money. 

When the person who have no source of income wants to become billionaire overnight and religious leader is assuring him or her. It send a bad signal to the people. Herbalist who is using human parts to prepare soap and concoction for their clients is not helping them.Entertainment industry, actors, actress, musicians are also part of money ritual problem. Their movie and music is always centre on money, it shapes people’s minds unknowingly.Government mismanagement national funds. Corruption among the politicians and government officers make the ratio of the few people who controlled the economy of a nation look like god while the majority live in lack and scarcity. Government policy favour the few people who controlled the money of a nation while majority suffer high inflation. It makes people want to look for shortcut and money ritual is the fastest lane for them.Effect of the money ritual scheme is disheartened but we cannot shy away from it consequences. Kidnapping, corpses without complete parts has littered highways and cemeteries invasion in the night. 

Untimely death, young people running mad and miserable in our community is pointing to money ritual.The solution is to embraced strict CORE VALUES. “Uprightness and right standing with God (moral and spiritual rectitude in every area and relation) elevate a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people.” Proverbs 14:34 AMPC.Nigeria is like a city without wall and that is why we are seeing these mess that littered up the country. The judicial system of Nigeria is corrupt and sick, it seriously needs healing. When corrupted government officers are let go scot-free, it sends a bad signal to the masses. Former governors, ministers or commissioners who looted public funds and cross carpet to the ruling party become saints. It weakened the rule of law and judicial system of the nation. Nigeria must embraced strict CORE VALUES and irreversible punishment for those who are caught in money ritual scheme. Only justice will lift up the head of this country and wipe out her dented image. No work, no pay. No pain, no gain. Work is the antidote for poverty not money ritual scheme.Nigeria needs to go back to her pledge and continue to sing it loud to the masses:I pledge to Nigeria my Country.To be faithful, loyal and honest.To serve Nigeria with all my strength.To defend her unity.And uphold her honour and glory.So help me God.
