In other news, founder and leader of the International God’s Way Church, Bishop Daniel Obinim passed commentary that Christians should make money and entertain themselves because the second coming of Jesus Christ is delaying.
The controversial man of God advises believers to make money and ”chill”, stressing that it has taken too long for Jesus Christ to return.
”Make money, buy cars and build houses because, from the way things are going, you may die before Jesus Christ returns. We believe in the second coming of Jesus Christ, but He’s delaying and we may turn seventy and eighty-years when his coming would still not be in sight,” he asserted.
