Reno Omokri has shared another thought-provoking epistle on his Twitter account themed on religion.


In his opinion, people are religious in this part of our world owing to the numerous problems plaguing them.

Invariably, he believes when they travel to western countries where the system works the probability of being less religious is very high. He posted;

“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”
