There are many fake pastors

As a born again Christian, if there is one thing in Christendom that does not cause Mr. Austine Akata sleeplessness it is the activities of charlatans masquerading as clerics.

As a born again Christian, if there is one thing in Christendom that does not cause Mr. Austine Akata sleeplessness it is the activities of charlatans masquerading as clerics.

He argued that just as there are false pastors there are genuine ones as well. “If any product is fake, there must be an original,” he posited.
Recently, he spoke with Daily Sun on this and other things.

Relationship with God
I gave my life to Christ in 1986 at the age of 18 when I was passing out of secondary school. Somebody preached the gospel of Jesus Christ to me. I have found out that there is freedom in Christ and He comes to give us life. So, I embrace the gospel of Jesus Christ because there is life. To be born again simply means giving your life to Christ as your lord and personal saviour. Receiving Jesus Christ into your heart, making him lord and master of your.

I have seen many great miracles. But one of the greatest miracles that happened in my life is my salvation. Coming from an idolatry home where people serve juju and all manners of things. Nobody ever believes in the gospel of Jesus Christ. But by the grace of God today I have been able to come out from that background, it is a miracle. It is not by might and not by power, so giving my life to Christ is a miracle. My parents are late, and some of my brothers have given their life to Christ and they have benefited tremendously through my life, which is a source of influence on them. Generally, about 60 per cent of them have given their life to Christ.

Communication with God
When you have the spirit of God, as soon as you give your life to Christ, a new spirit is imparted in you and that spirit will give you fellowship with God and by this you can communicate with God through prayers.

Do you believe in tithing?
Tithe is a covenant obligation given to man by God. The Bible says in the book of Malachi 3:10, “Bring ye all the tithe into my store house, so that there will be food in my house, test me in this, says the Lord Almighty, and see, if I will not open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that you will not have room enough for it.”
This is one of the commandments of God that was enacted to make man to leave in abundance. So, tithe is very important to every christian. In my church, I pay my tithe, it belongs to God. The Bible says in the book of Leviticus that all the tithe of the land belongs to me. Though God cannot appear physically to come and use it, He appointed His ministers to administer these tithes to the wellbeing of the church. It is meant to promote the gospel.

Heaven and Hell
There is life after death and there is heaven. I am going to heaven. The Bible says that, any man that has this hope in him guides his affairs with discretion. So, if you have hope that you are going to a place, you have to prepare for it by guiding your affair, run away from sin and live a life that is pure.
The judgement of God is real. Every man that is living on the face of the earth needs to think about where he or she will spend eternity. So, preparation is very necessary as you begin to check your life, anywhere you know you have gone astray quickly make peace with God and by so doing, you are preparing for the judgement day.

This is a great piece of history, which is dear to our hearts as people and very much appreciated.

Many thanks to the people who worked hard in the past and those who are still making efforts to keep the institution.

The labour is obviouly worth it. We are proud of you all.

A lot still to be done, with the motivation of the champions of this course, others will follow as well to maintain the institution

May God continue to keep the edifice for development of future generations to the glory of God and the benefits of our fatherland.
