Opinion

Why did you stop going to church? A Twitter user posted a question, then all hell broke loose

A question posted on Twitter by Droid254 has elicited mixed and interesting reactions from Kenyans on Twitter (KOT).

Kenya is said to be 80 percent Christian, but also very corrupt.

The church has over the year deteriorated morally and cannot be trusted as a compass for anything good.

Perhaps the greatest bad PR for the church is the acceptance of a man such as DP William Ruto to its circles. Yes, Ruto is a Christian, but no other politician has had his name associated with so much filth.

Maybe, the good Lord says, ‘Come just as you are’, but that doesn’t mean he hasn’t also warned against going back to sin.

But this also leads us to another new world view, that one of rationality. Many bad people hide in the walls of the church, they use it to the maximum to hurt others.

Better a secular world, one which uses the rational mind to deduce things.

Well, back to the question, ‘Why did you stop going to church?’, here are some interesting takes:

Gospel of prosperity/ toa sadaka

Imagine going to church to listen enjoy hymns, the sound of the organ, and enjoy the Liturgy, only for some Mheshimiwa to be invited to the pulpit to spew nonsense. But pia Pesa ya Tithe and Harambee sina” – Billy Ipara

The moment I realized pastors emphasize on the gospel of tithing , giving,prosperity and double blessings instead of preaching the gospel of love, humility, caring et al.They even nowdays use a register to monitor those who don’t tithe basing their preaching on Malachi Chp 6″, Daves Nyakambi

church was all good until one Sunday unaingia church unaombwa 500 ya kuweka church tiles, 200 ya sijui ya event iko inbetween the week sadaka utoe mara mbili na ujiandikishe mchango pastor anataka gari mpya“, Sammy Ocharo

Niliona ni Babylon system and shit was only taking money and time from me.“, Dr Kanyuria

suspicion started when the pastors would come up with funny events which they used as an avenue to get more money..unaskia “harvest month” mara kama tatu kwa mwaka.. pale walikua Wana hesabu like 5m Sunday moja..”, Vikter44
This thread briefly explains why religion will be extinct in the next 10 years. Myself I stopped believing in religion when I saw war criminals like William Ruto embraced by the church. – CisNyakundi

Wolves in sheep skin

“I was almost defiled by a man of the cloth, at the ‘church’. As a child. Then I got to see porn. Before I knew what role play was, I saw them again… Men of the cloth + nuns, in porn, that they themselves do not endorse. I declared the whole thing a mystery I can never resolve”,  – Atieno Ayot

“It’s sad but a fact that the worst liars.. Most hypocritical people and deadliest pretenders use church as a cover of a pretend perfect life“, Chep Moraa

New age thinking

the Bible justifies mass murder for unbelievers of the christian god (Israel killing its neighbors and Armageddon) discovered its a combined narration of observed happenings over long period of time (heavily borrowing from other teachings such as daoism) borrowing from established/old cultures (Asia) or teaching is not bad…actually its natural whats wrong is the effort of convincing me that religion is absolute truth”, Kimtu Kieusi

He could have easily killed the devil… but He chose his son instead“, 1Leite

The bible justifies alot of bigotry that’s led to a lot of social injustice. It hates women,was used to perpetuate slave trade & colonialism in africa. Church & religion has more unanswered questions because the answer is “faith”“, I wanna Meria

Double standards

“Pastor needs a car lets contribute .Kamau needs to go to India lets pray and fast. To make matters worse the priest preaches that a car is an earthly thing and we should not be so much interested in it…Wakora”, litmuspaperss
