Anxiety And Depression Are Real; They Can Not Be Confessed Away In Religious Camps.
WHAT IS DEPRESSION?
Depression is more than just a low mood; it is a severe condition that affects physical and mental health. Poverty is not the only cause of depression; there are many other factors we should be looking into as well, especially when religious shenanigans and fraud are escalating.
Depression is common in many other countries other than Nigeria; as a matter of fact, it is worse in Western countries. However, their government and other citizens are doing a very great job of helping their citizens, the needy, and many depressed minds out of depression.
But Nigeria’s cases are different because many of their so-called influential special anointed religious leaders are undoubtedly out of touch and don’t have Godly solutions to people’s predicament other than various religious myths and fallacies on various mountains of fire.
That is why, in this dispensation of the so-called Pentecostal movement, you will find all kinds of sacrificial offerings, musical equipment, and comedians’ foolishness and stupidity in various religious business centers; all are simply for cajoling because Nigerians can’t survive without comedy or skits, yet many Christians are not only dying of oppression but of serious depression.
The Lord Jesus also faced a similar situation, and the Bible recorded it as follows, “He withdrew from them about a stone’s throw, and knelt down and prayed, saying, “Father, if you are willing, remove this cup from me. Nevertheless, not my will, but yours, be done.” And there appeared to him an angel from heaven, strengthening him. And being in agony he, prayed more earnestly; and his sweat became like great drops of blood falling down to the ground” Luke 22:41–44.
Believers in Christ, do you know who said the following? “My soul is overwhelmed with sorrow to the point of death” Matthew 26:38.
Please kindly permit me to continue emphasizing the nation of Nigeria and Nigerians because Nigeria is a nation where depression of many kinds is killing its citizens silently. Especially in their various Shiloh camps, Mountain of Fire, Redemption camps, and many other religious business centers, though they always tied their situations to spiritual deficiencies and evil power, specifically that of witches and wizards. Believers in Christ, please borrow each other’s common sense. Not everything that is happening in the nation of Nigeria emanates from evil spiritual power.
The ones that your various special anointed men and women of gods and influential daddy g.o and bishop in religious business camps are causing are included, and they are enormous, such as collecting many innocent, ignorant, greedy, and covetous people’s Isaac as seed due to too much love for money, craving for material things, erroneous teachings about kingdom prosperity, accumulation of wealth mentality, and many other religious myths, shenanigans and fallacies that continue to plague in various Redemption camps and Shiloh camps business centers. Because that is the only lucrative route, the so-called influential and privileged few could be making fast and fraudulent money from innocent believers in Christ and the less privileged.
Many religious leaders and their supposed Christian organizations, especially the ones of the Pentecostal gathering, have become an atmosphere for oppression, depression, and costly goya olive oil anointing for miracles.
If their bishops are not buying new private jets for evangelism, a daddy g.o will be renovating a Redemption campground or upgrading another three kilometers by three kilometers largest auditoriums in the world, yet they will be expecting all this money to be coming out from their already depressed mind member’s wallet.
Believers in Christ, how do you think many people will not be poor and depressed when their various daddy g.o and bishops are forcing and cursing many children of God to be giving what they don’t have by compulsion and under duress in the name of a vow or pledging to Jesus?
The worst part of their shenanigans is that many of these covetous and greedy general overseers and Bishop’s members will be going around their friends and families to be scouting or begging for money with arrogant, especially from the ones outside the household of faith to be building a campground that they said ”God commanded” in a false way, including defrauding unbelievers and many other believers that are minding their businesses by patiently waiting for the Lord’s lifting, and the next thing is that they will end up manipulating and depressing others that are waiting and trusting in God because of their pitiful looking.
Pastors, Bishops, and General Overseers are not excluded from fraudulent begging trips to unbelievers and their family members for money in order to be able to pay religiosity dues, remission, or remittances to their various franchise parish business headquarters bank accounts so that they can retain their various franchise parishes they are calling Churches.
Nigeria Christian leaders, especially the influential ones among them, are not making things easier for their followers or members.
Many Churches enjoy manipulating their followers until they reach a comatose situation or death because they want to ride a private jet or build a billion dollars seat campground, Shiloh camp extension, and extend their covenant university to suit their political thieves’ business partner’s standard that their covenant is with unrighteous mammon, not minding thousands of their congregations that had been laid off from their various jobs. How do you expect those people who have the opportunity to steal money not to do so for them to belong to tithes increments or Isaac seed sowing megachurch? Unknowingly, many “born-again Christians” have forgotten their families and neighbors, running to various redemption camps, Shiloh camps, and many other religious business centers to fulfill all kinds of fraudulent pledges.
BELIEVERS IN CHRIST’S WAYS MUST BE DIFFERENT FROM THAT OF THE PHARISEES AND THE SADDUCEES.
Nigeria’s influential religious leaders, especially the so-called Christians, are the most qualified ones to turn around the tides of unrighteous attitudes and religious fraud that have been planted in the lives of many of their followers in Nigeria and abroad, which is overflowing into their various societies and wreaking havoc in many nations. Note this: many of these so-called men and women of God are the real custodians of various “yahoo-yahoo” thieves and many other fraudsters.

Including, many other Nigerians are all part of Nigeria’s problem, no one should be religious or hypocritical righteous about that.
IS THERE A WAY OUT OF THE DEPRESSION TREND IN NIGERIA? OF COURSE YES! AND ABSOLUTELY YES!!!
If everyone, especially the believers in Christ, paid more attention to their neighbors and started giving them necessary attention needed, instead of running back and forth to unending prayer meetings and ”holy-ghost vigils for deliverance, while Nigerian politicians keep on stealing the nation’s money at will, and the Bishops and Daddy g.o’s are busy collecting their own ”tithes” of various loots in various Redemption camp, Canaanland, and much other religious business centers.
Brethren, pay more attention if you notice that your neighbor or family members are going to every day ”holy-ghost vigil” or your spouse is locking himself or herself up in a room every day, praying for his or her needs to be met; it might be a sign of depression not the love for God.
For the ones that are yet to marry. Instead of mistaking your fiance or fiancee’s action as God-lover, as many people would insinuate, I will advise that you take a bold step and carry out a depression test or seek more help before you finalize your marriage plan. Why? Just checking out how good he or she is surrendering to the will of God without wasting your next-generation resources to be sowing monetary faith seeds or Isaac as seeds around religious business campgrounds.
ARE YOU A CHRISTIAN, OR YOU’RE JUST CONFESSING THAT YOU ARE ONE?
