Majority Of Nigerian Christians Are Empty

A typical Nigerian Christian crusade. Nigerians love to join mammoth crowds at miracle crusades. But after the crusades, they return to their cheating, lying, stealing, killing and other horrible and terrible acts of corruption and wickedness.

There cannot be true Christianity without spirituality.
That is why the Word of God said that those who must worship God, must worship HIM in Spirit and in Truth. But as can be seen, the Christianity practiced by most Nigerians is empty, because they don't worship God in Spirit and Truth.
The hypocritical eye service and lip service of the millions of church goers cannot move mountains, because they are just empty barrels making the loudest noise, but without power.

You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.

~ Matthew 5:13 (New International Version)

God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.

~ John 4:24

Their falsehood and hypocrisy have only shown that they have no consciousness of the Holy Spirit of God which is the true essence of Jesus Christ and the spiritual power of true Christianity.

The LORD is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth.

~ Psalm 145:18

Without the Holy Spirit, a believer is empty and powerless.

The spirit of God can only manifest where there is truth.
Even when King David fell, he begged God not to take His Holy Spirit from him. Because without the Holy Spirit, a Christian is powerless and will just be swayed and tossed about in the world and can be wasted by unbelievers and the enemies of Truth.

Do not cast me from your presence or take your Holy Spirit from me.

~ Psalm 51:11 (New International Version)

Read the following from 2 Timothy 3 (New International Version) and you will fully understand what is happening to Christianity in Nigeria and why majority of Christians give in to corruption and wickedness.

3 But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. 2 People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, 4 treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people.

6 They are the kind who worm their way into homes and gain control over gullible women, who are loaded down with sins and are swayed by all kinds of evil desires, 7 always learning but never able to come to a knowledge of the truth. 8 Just as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so also these teachers oppose the truth. They are men of depraved minds, who, as far as the faith is concerned, are rejected. 9 But they will not get very far because, as in the case of those men, their folly will be clear to everyone.
