Don’t kill yourself, skill yourself, Cleric tells Youths



By 'Gbenga Bankole


Youths have been urged not to
assume knowledge, but acquire it and not to kill themselves, but skill themselves.


The District Superintendent and Pastor-in-charge of Christ Apostolic Church, Bethel Toronto, Pastor Amos Dada stated this recently at the Leaders' Retreat organized by CAC Youth Fellowship, Canada Chapter.


In his exact words: "God will only increase you based on how you increase your own capacity. You have to consciously increase your capacity. Many Pastors don’t read. Ask your self "how many books Have I read this year?" Change your thinking pattern. Stop thinking local, think global. Pursue  personal development. Paul says That I may know him John 7:15, 2 Tim 2:15.


"Don’t assume knowledge, acquire it. Don’t kill yourself, skill yourself.Walk with the wise people. Prov 13:20; Prov 27:17- You must have a mentor. The reason many are breaking away from the church is that they don’t want to be under authority, they don’t want mentors. Believe in excellence , no room for mediocrity. Develop the spirit of excellence. The characteristic of youth is that they have energy and they want to explore. Guide them to do positive exploration, design, invent, innovate, create, not spend your youth exploring your body, sex, piercing your body, men wearing earing, doing tattoo. Pursue excellence," he said.



While imploring the youth leaders to be consistent, the Cleric said they should be consistent in reading the bible and obeying it, consistent in prayer, consistent in fellowship, consistent in sharing the word of God and consistent in given to the gospel.




He further stated that;"there is no generation without challenges. Homosexuality was mentioned in Genesis.  1 Cor 10:13. Every temptation is common. Deal with temptations with James 4:7 . Submit to God resist the devil. Do that on habitual basis and you will become the Babalola of this generation.
