How to practice Christianity in a world of corruption - Dons

By 'Gbenga Bankole

In a world where some believe it is difficult to be corrupt free, Christians have been urged to remember they are in the world, but not of the world and must be ready to shun corruption at all times.

Former Vice Chancellor of Tai Solarin University of Education (TASUED), Prof. Oluyemisi Oluremi Obilade, President and Founder of the Spokesman Communication Ministries and Pastor of the Sanctuary of Hope Church in Ile-Ife, Rev. Prof. Greg Erhabor and a Professor of Paediatrics and Child Health at Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU) Professor Jerome Elusiyan stated this on Thursday November 21, 2019 at Executive Talk Show organized by Christ Apostolic Church, Praise Chapel on the topic "Practicing Christianity in the World of Corruption. Prof. Obilade urged Christians to take any position they attain as an assignment from God, saying it is possible to live in the world of corruption or be surrounded by corruption and still live by His grace to please God.

While using herself as a case study, the former VC of TASUED said she never compromised the standard of the scripture while in office despite so many temptations, stating that throughout the five years she spent in office she never sat on her official seat because she acknowledged Christ as the CEO of TASUED and the seat belongs to Him.

According to her, God will not change His standard for any man, adding that the more of God you have in you will determine whether you will compromise when temptation comes.

"When the world of people know what you stand for, your life becomes easier. Be aware of who you're in Christ. Run away from lust. When you stand for God there is a price to pay. You can work among corrupt people and not be corrupted," she stated.

Rev. Prof. Erhabor on his part said any Christian who wants to live a corruption free life must not seek wealth, but the kingdom of God, noting that is unbelievers who seek wealth.

He noted that Christians who seek wealth find themselves in corruption.

Prof. Erhabor who said Pentecostalism has lost its power in Nigeria noted that the pulpit reflects the spiritual climate of the society, but that does not reduce the standard of God.

Also speaking at the programme, a Professor of Paediatrics and Child Health Professor Elusiyan urged youths present at the programme to be ready for battle in their bid to please God.

He noted that there are people who will wage war against them because of their determination not compromise their faith.

He also acknowledged that is possible not to be corrupt in a corrupt environment or society.
