JUST MUSING: CHRISTIANITY IS NOT ABOUT SPREADING FEAR

This came to me via one of my Whatsapp chat groups:

Welcome to Africa where typing ‘Amen’ to a person pastor’s prayers on Facebook will save you from your village witches and make you a billionaire…

Welcome to Africa where Jesus Christ sends you a Whatsapp message and
threatens to kill you if you do not send it to 20 people.

The most annoying thing in all is that graduates and supposed learned people send these ”miracle messages” to their friends every day.

These messages carry lots of threats; some of the messages say you will suffer or go broke for a week if you don’t send them…

As Christians, we need to keep an open mind and be discerning and also open our hearts and minds to healthy discussions. We need to think…

Do you believe God will punish you if you refuse to send those messages?
Do you think your destiny is tied to a message on social media?
Do you genuinely believe you will receive instant miracles after you type ‘Amen’ on that post?

We claim to be children of God, but we are scared of the future, scared of little things.
You relay a message to 20 people on social media and believe in your heart that you will wake up tomorrow a billionaire…

What is wrong with us?
Like seriously, what is really wrong with us?
Without prayers, hard work, abide in the word of God in our everyday life, determination and purpose, ”miracle messages” on social media are not invisible hands that can instantly make us rich…

Stop spreading your fears on social media because we are not gullible…
Our God is too big to send threats to make people obey Him.
Our God will never do that.

We need messages that will transform souls and not messages that will threaten people to create unnecessary fear……

 

 

I will like to add that creating fear in the hearts of others is a game plan from the pit of hell and those that play these games are nothing but satanic agents parading themselves as Christians.
It is written in the Bible “we have not been given a spirit of fear but of power of love and of a sound mind”

A true Christian will not propagate heresy and confusion. Remove anyone who sends or posts such nonsense from your list of “Christian” friends.
