LAGOS (AFP) – A Nigerian pentecostal church on Saturday announced that it was charging a fee of 2,000 naira (13 dollars, eight euros) for connecting would-be lovers on Valentine's Day.

The House of God Fellowship Church, located near a Lagos prison, is charging the fee to defray the cost of a seminar, marriage counselling, music and entertainment during the love event, spokesman Michael Uchebuaku told AFP.

"The event is purely for singles. There was a large turnout of would-be lovers when the 'Love Connection Valentine's Singles' event was staged for the first time last year," he said.

"Start the new year by meeting your Mr or Miss Right," states the church in an advertisement in The Guardian newspaper on Saturday.

"Hurry up and register because this might be your last chance to find your husband or wife. To register, pay 2,000 naira to any branch of Union Bank," the advertisement said.

Uchebuaku, a public relations professional, said that under a deal with the church, profit from the event will be shared equally between the church and himself.

 Shocked Shocked Shocked THE LOVE OF MONEY IS THE ROOT OF ALL EVIL. LIVE BY FAITH AND NOT BY SIGHT. FOR THE RIGHTEOUS SHALL LIVE BY FAITH. AS THE LORD LIVETH WE SHALL LIVE ALSO. FOR THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS NOT FOR MEAT AND DRINK ONLY. LORD, DON'T MAKE ME RICH I MIGHT FORGET YOU,DON'T MAKE ME POOR I MIGHT CURSE YOU. DEAR LORD, YOU ARE MORE COSTLY THAN SILVER, MORE PRECIOUS THAN GOLD, MORE BEAUTIFUL THAN DIAMOND. BUT CONTENTMENT IS A GREAT GAIN. DON'T FOCUS YOUR LIFE TO TEMPORAL THINGS BUT FOCUS YOUR LIFE TO ETERNAL THINGS. AMEN. DEAR JESUS WE ARE SORRY FOR OUR SIN. TEACH US AND HELP US TO LIVE RIGHTEOUSLY BEFORE MEN AND BEFORE YOU. THANK YOU HOLY SPIRIT FOR ALWAYS LEADING US AND GUIDING INTO YOUR OWN PURPOSE. AMEN.

It is disgusting to hear that churches in Nigeria are becoming commercialized and loosing focus of their mandate. This only points to the fact that we are living in perilous times and we ought to be on the watch, lest we led astray. The fact that some have strayed doesn't make the gospel a lie. We must continue to preach the undefiled, undiluted truth of God
's Word. Like Kenneth Hagin of blesseth memory will say, on both sides of the path of truth are pitfalls and we must continue to walk in the path and refuse to sway to any extremes. Beloved hold firmly to the truth you have heard and received, lest at anytime you should let them slip.
Worry not for the Great Judge will try every man
s work with fire, then we shall know the true disciples of our Lord Jesus Christ. Shalom!

"Love for sale in Nigerian church on Valentine's Day" certainly does not make a big news to minds like me.  My comfortability with this kind of news is anchored on my long-standing finding that church has since become a business empire for so many anxious pecuniarily corrupt minds. Theological schools are spread all over the places, producing rather hitherto frustrated men and women indoctrinated to believe that on attracting large congregation, their pockets would begin to swell proportionately. This is why ear drums are sometimes almost burst in motor parks, luxury buses and other pubs in the name of praying for commuters’ safe journey.  I no longer get disturbed because I know that those churches and some street preachers are like any other businesses and hawkers of wares on the street.

The defense by the spokesman of The House of God Fellowship Church, located near a Lagos prison, that they charged the fee to defray the cost of a seminar, marriage counselling, music and entertainment during the love event, is even more disgusting.  Doesn’t the church have a purse?  What do they do with their offerings and so on?  What is the work of the Pastor(s) of the church.  Are there not enough words on marriage in the Bible for him to impart to the participants.  Is that church not peopled by leaders with deep knowledge of the Bible?  Why didn't they form the nucleus of resource persons free of charge?  We all know the motive behind the so-called valentine occasions; period when young minds are influenced by anything romantic.   Since we cannot judge, according to the Greatest Book - The Bible - let us just beware of every announcement coming from these new generation churches in particular, for seminars, crusades and so on, ostensibly chorused to take us to the next level in our religious quest for miraculous impossibilities.
