_[My take on this post. This is not to endorse  every_ _means by which some of these used to attain their status ~buti]_

*An average African Pastor* won't talk about Usain Bolt,  Serena Williams or Wayde van Niekerk. They won't talk about  Mark Richard Shuttleworth,  late Prof. Dora Akunyili, Trevor Noah, Siyabulela Xuza or  Tony Elumelu

An average African pastor wont talk about Steve Jobs or the young people in Silicon Valley reshaping our world.

They won't talk about young American scientists spending endless hours in search of a cure to a disease that's predominantly in the Tropical African region.

An average African pastor won't talk about late Chinua Achebe, Ngugi Wa Thiongo, Wole Soyinka, Chimamanda Ngozi, Adichie or Ben Okri.

In every corner of the world, there exist young men and women who have defiled all odds and became successful through hardwork, creativity and dedication... SystemSpecs, E-Tranzact, etc

An average African pastor wont talk about Olugbether will he ask his members to emulate the spirit of these individuals.

He would rather talk about sister Agatha who got a job she WAS NOT THE MOST QUALIFIED because she prayed and fasted in line with their church program. Or...

Brother John who became a millionaire because he used all his salary as a seed in the church. Or

Papa Miracle who laid his hands on and 3 of his children got admission in the university. Or...

Mama Esther paid her tithe and her business started growing everywhere across the business plan, just boom, everywhere!

 This has led to a new breed of mentally lazy young people who now see God as a rewarder of mediocrity.

To an average African Pastor, the only way to prosper is by paying your tithe and sowing seeds in the church. So they will never talk about those who have through hardwork and dedication placed themselves on the world map.

No......the African  "god" only blesses the first 30 people that rush to the altar to drop 100,000 as seed.

The African "god" abhors hardwork and creative thinking, He only gives to those who sow seeds and offerings......and those who shout "i am a millionaire" every morning and do nothing the rest of the day.

You want God to come down and help you use the talent He gave you and bless you because you are going to church to shout "Daddy, I receive it"

Can someone tell these jokers that irrespective of your creed, faith or religion, blessings and favours follows you once you start using your talent and become useful to your society.

    I agree with you poster. Nigerians and even other Africans must learn to work hard in developing those talents God deposited in us for the good of mankind in general. Miracles still happen but we mustn't be deceived into believing that without doing anything useful, you can sit, with faith and confessions and claiming and quoting the Bible to get manna drop from heaven.
