Don’t Bring Comedy To Church By Rev Olusola Areogun
Allowing comedians to come into church and make light of sacred scripture is a terrible assault on the Kingdom of God. This kind of invasion by comedians undermines the reverence and dignity of the pulpit. Their presence can bring in money and provide entertainment, but it also desecrates the holy altar and makes a mockery of the things of God. The devil is using this opportunity to make the things of God look foolish, while making his own look wise.
Speaking in tongue is one of the most sacred practices in the church, and it should not be treated lightly. If a comedian went to a mosque and started cracking jokes about verses of the Quran, it would be considered a desecration of the altar of God. The same should apply to the church. The pastors hold the passwords to the Kingdom, and a comedian making fun of these things is unacceptable.
The ministry’s role is to show the people the difference between the common and the uncommon, to be holy and to be common. The Bible should be treated with respect and not made a joke. The same goes for the Koran for Muslims. Jesus is the father of the Bible, and joking about it is disrespectful. When it’s time for the man to bless the people, a comedian should not be standing in his place. The people are missing out on one of the most powerful blessings of the Kingdom.
