Christians urged to use social media positively

Social media

Christians have been enjoined to defend the faith and the church, especially in the face of attacks against some church leaders. The charge was given by the senior pastor of Harvesters Christian Centre (HICC), Gbagada, Bolaji Idowu at the church’s annual night of worship and miracles, which held last weekend.

According to Idowu, faithful should rally round to uphold the church and the gospel in the face of onslaught and the rise of persecution against the church, especially on social media in recent times.

“Many forces are standing against the church, with news of pastors being accused of doing one thing or the other making the rounds. While it is easier to spread false information and bad news about the church, as Christians, it will be more profitable if we spread the good things happening in the church through the social media channels also,” he said.

Worshippers at the Night of Worship and Miracles had their expectations met with many giving testimonies of healing, restoration of broken homes, prosperity amidst recession and spiritual fulfilment.

In the same vein, Christians have been advised to increase their faith in God in spite of the hard times, and never be anxious despite reports of suicide, unemployment, and depression pervading the social space..

Brother Life Owu, Circuit Overseer said this at the one-day Circuit Assembly of Jehovah Witnesses held at the Lekki Assembly Ground, near Gbogije town, Lekki, Lagos State. The programme, with the theme ‘Increase your faith in Jehovah,’ was organized by the governing body of Jehovah’s Witnesses to uplift the spiritual state of delegates as they wade through the present hardship caused by the recession in the country.

The Circuit Overseer added that they should apply Matthew 6:33 to their daily life, which says: “Seek first God’s Kingdom and his righteousness, every other thing will be added to you.”
