The current economic crisis in the nation of Nigeria has been forewarned years back by Prophet T.B. Joshua. The Prophet who has been advising the leaders on the most efficient way to manage the nation’s natural resources and Economy, enlightened them to form the habit of exchanging the nation’s crude oil for advanced technologies (READ: FOR NIGERIA TO DEVELOP, THEY SHOULD EXCHANGE OIL FOR TECHNOLOGY” – TB JOSHUA). As well as enacting policies towards the diversification of the nation’s Economy, by investing and developing the Agricultural sector. Even in his New-year message, Prophet T.B.

Sometimes one wonder where those with limited knowledge about the scripture got those spurious claims that Christianity or religion does not encourage human skillfulness and expertise, but just prayers. Though, it is important to pray as a believer. The scripture instructed us to “Pray without ceasing” (1 Thessalonians 5:17), but the same scripture clearly stated that “Faith without works is dead” (James 2:14-26). God does not condone laziness and manna are not going to fall from heaven. Human skills, intellectualism and expertise are gifts from God and we are to make use of them to better the world. It is out of pride and ignorance for one to worship those things instead of the giver of wisdom…READ MORE
