Religion: The New Colonialist
Religion being originally introduced to us by foreigners in the name of colonialists first of all came as an instrument of civilization little did we know that it was an investment strategy implanted by the colonialists to control us even long after they had gone. Religion currently has been converted to the opium of the masses like take a critical look and observe our country Nigeria today, we are no longer divided by culture or tribe or political ambition rather religion. The two major factions being Islam and Christianity but at this point I'm not going to delve into Islam as I'm not a fan nor a critic of that religion rather Christianity which I'm a fan and critic of.
Everyday an average Nigerian wakes up, he/she 'prays' at least once a day, but come to think of it, what are we actually praying for?! Money?! Life?! Surely we can never have enough of those but then does that call daily prayers or daily effort?! We all know the answers to these questions but really this truth and answers will never be accepted nor voiced out. Yes there is need for us to worship our creator, burden Him with our problems but then without more daily effort you'll still remain as you are with no improvement.
The so called 'Shepherds' of today's churches and orthodox churches be turning the church to business where they make billions of money from without a thoughtful conscientious attitude to the plight of the masses. Why?! The masses continually fall victim to the greedy ambitious vultures without questioning their decision. Why?! I'll give you an answer... The investment of the whites colonialists are now yielding profits for them! Every single day the country keeps on getting worse and is being plunged into a state of utter destruction. What solution has been offered by our leaders if not that we should keep on praying for the country?! With every new incident in the country we all go to to social media platforms and trend hashtags #prayfornigeria #prayfor this #prayforthat. Like seriously?! We all need to awaken to the fact that prayers is just to let our creator know our problems so He help every decision we make towards our efforts to solve such problems work out.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying we all should quit religion rather we should control religion as it would most likely destroy us in the nearest future .
