The Christian Association Of Nigeria (CAN) Tells Christians to Stop Complaining About Economy.
The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has challenged adherents of Christian faith to evolve independent means of making their lives and society better and stop complaining about the present economic situation in the country.
Reverend Abare Kalla, Chairman, Christian Association of Nigeria, Northeast Zone Northeast spoke at the Zonal annual development conference of the Christian Rural and Urban Association of Nigeria (CRUDAN) held in Gombe on Saturday.
He gave the advice against the background that God always create a window of opportunity in every situation that appears calamitous to man.
“If we want to make spirituality a real spirituality, we must take care of our economic life to live in because if you look at the situation around us, the church is going poor because we are not doing what Jesus taught us to do.
“We took the gospel so religious, so spiritual that the economic aspect is neglected. So, CRUDAN is supplementing this aspect so that we can become holistic in our gospel
“I don’t Christian like who are so crazy with religiosity and overnight fasting, but their economic aspect is bad because of inaction.
“If you want to see the best of a Christian person is somebody who feeds the church from his pocket,” Rev. Kalla explained.
He described the Conference as timely, saying, “if there is a better opportunity in the Northeast, this is the right time”
“Gone are the days we waited for foreign aids, what we do for ourselves now counts,” he told Christians.
A participant at the conference and Coordinator of a Non-Governmental Organisation in Taraba state, Pastor Emmanuel Agede said CRUDAN is a holistic development organisation that focuses on thematic issues concerning the spirit, soul and body of the individual.
“Every individual should be touched. So, CRUDAN is to bring people together and sensitise them on bringing holistic development to bare in their lives.
