Popular Christian drama veteran, Mike Bamiloye, of the Mount Zion Film Ministries, has unleashed a missile against celebrity pastors and their penchant for bringing comedians to the altar as part of church programmes and activities. Writing on his social media handle, he said:
“I want to address Christians – ALL denominations – this morning without prejudice! For a long while I have questioned the inclusion of COMEDY in Church events. What do I question? The fact that the comedians brought in are allowed to make jokes of scriptures, the Blood of Jesus, speaking in tongues, the throne of grace etc.’ AND WE SIT THERE LAUGHING! What are we laughing at? What is funny? Mocking God and Christ and the Holy Spirit and the Word is funny????
We hear of other religions where they are obsessed with protecting the image of their Leader and we gleefully allow people to MOCK our Leader JESUS CHRIST and the Holy Spirit and thereby indirectly MOCKING GOD!!! They look at us with disdain because we are BAD AMBASSADORS of our faith…
” to the pure all things are pure “, we must have quoted .What we failed to see is the side effects of entertainment:
– The spirit of lasciviousness prevailed .
“Sad enough, recently I found myself laugh at one of such instances ,and quickly I Checked myself ” are you losing your mind ” I asked myself . Comical jokes and ridiculous jokes poked at scripturally awed activities!!!!!!
– Jokes about casting out demons ( when fewer believers actually cast out Demons )
– Mockery about tongues ( called a communication with the Father )
– Gifts of the spirit used as comedy and to generate hilarity ( whereas fewer believers walk in the gifts )
– Ministry of angels used as comical relief ..
– Judgment seat of Christ made to look like theatre too.
– Most vitally, preachers of the gospels in humor mannequin for laughs and fun.
The list goes on…What exactly is happening??? The Yorubas say ” it’s a bastard who uses his left hand to describe his fathers house…”
A lot of pastors in Nigeria have created a religious and comedy mix with a view to drawing a crowd to preach to. Opinion is divided on the propriety of this concept. But with a religious leader in the mold of Mike Bamiloye condemning it out-rightly, it remains to be seen what other notable pastors like Paul Adefarasin of House On The Rock, Lekki, Emmanuel Olumide of Calvary Bible Church, Idimu, Ayo Oritsejafor of Word of Life Bible Church, Warri, and a host of others will say about it.
