The Cherubim and Seraphim Church, Ifesowapo Ologodidan sub-headquarters in Ilorin, on Sunday cautioned Christians to beware of prophets in the habit of swindling people.

NAN reports that Presiding Pastor of the church, Special Apostle Henry Orolugbagbe, noted that many Christians had deviated from the path of honour while looking for miracles from fake prophets.

The cleric urged the followers of Christ to study and know what they believe in through adherence to the teachings and principles of Jesus.

“Bible does not ask us to be looking for miracles where such does not exist.

“Rather we should know what we believe in and read the Bible very well.

“Jesus says knock and it shall be opened; Ask and it shall be given. All we need from pastors is guidance,” he said.

The pastor noted that many Christians were lazy in fasting and prayers nowadays; hence they wanted things on a platter of gold.

The church leader advised the Federal Government to rise up to the challenges of insecurity holistically.

He noted that while the government moved head on to address the issue, Nigerians should join in fasting and prayers.

The clergy also urged Christians to join politics in order to be part of decision -making.

“Christians have been running away from politics, giving undue advantage to others. However, politics is what we must be involved in to be part of decision makers,’’ he said.
