Poverty is why people are religious and churchy – Reno Omokri

Factual Pursuit of Truth for Progress


Nigerian human rights activist, Reno Omokri, has stated that the majority of those who are so religious and visit the church occasionally are doing that because they are poor.

He posted this on his Instagram page today, September 14.

Omokri also stated that overcrowded and underdeveloped places make people believe their prayers do not get answered.

He said, “Poverty is why many people are religious and churchy. When these same people relocate abroad and see that their prayer requests are easily met in their new locations, they lose their religiosity.

“Religion is a reaction to poverty. Faith is a more reliable judge of Godliness. That is why after salvation, Christ taught more about wealth. Because without wealth, your spiritual health is at risk.

Poverty alters your perspective. You make enemies out of innocent people.

“You blame ancestral curses and village people for your poverty, when in fact the problem is your location, which is overpopulated and underfunded.

“And fear of enemies, rather than love for God drives you to church.”
