Nigerian Pastor Questions His Faith [Advice Needed]

Published

on

Faith gives meaning, importance and comfort to one’s life. A person realizing they have started losing faith in God might feel disturbed and lonely reader has started questioning his own faith and believes he does not have the right to lie to the people who see him as a man of God.

 

I’m a pastor and I’ve started to lose my faith. Every Sunday, I stand before my congregation and preach things I no longer believe in. I just can’t trust the God I’m praying to.

I felt the calling when I was a 6-year-old boy. I had questions, of course, sometimes even doubts. But I thought those would only strengthen my faith. However, when I became a pastor myself nine years ago, sharper questions have started coming to mind.

Would a loving God would torment innocent people, His own image, for eternity? Is there any evidence of God’s existence at all?

I have no one to talk to. That’s why I chose the anonymous way of confessing to thousands of people.

Nobody in family knows I’m having these kind of thoughts. I can’t even imagine to confide in anyone of my friends. I feel that one day, I’ll just leave my job and even relocate to other part of Nigeria.

I just cannot be one of those sheep who follow blindly, without knowing the truth. I don’t know anymore if I even miss “talking to God” and if it’s worth trying to become a born-again believer. I also don’t like the idea of lying to people. What do I do? HELP!

    Learn to love the “invicible” God more and more. Even though you are beginning to question His existence, act like you are beginning an imaginary relationship with a creator you haven’t gotten to meet.
    Cut out anything you think might have gotten your attention and you’ve become addicted to outside the love of and love for God. Pray that people who don’t even know you will pray for you and for God to strengthen you(Ephesians 6:18-20).Try your possible best to go on a personal spiritual retreat away from pleasures and family for as long as you deem it fit.
    There are also people who feel the same way you do; so don’t forget to remember them in your prayers too.

    My dear brother the evidence of God’s existance is too great to be hiden.The most prominent one is your very existance.Have you ever thought about the origin of life,do you really understand and believe the scripture?You’ve a pastor for 9 years,if I may ask,have you been praying and to whom?Have you ever recieved an answer,if yes then who answered the prayer? If you have never recieved an answer then you question your christianity and pastorship,have you really been a christian or only thought you have?

    I want to let u know that God is real. No matter whether you are loosing your faith or not. Why don’t you ask God that question. Ask him if he is real and let him prove himself to you in signs and wonder. Afterall Gideon did so. Moses did asked the same question and they all got answers. If you are so sincere as you say, just talk to God, he will prove his existence to you.

    All you need is Islaam. It is the only way to salvation. The concept of God in christianity is full of serious flaws and annoying ascriptions. God is one. He can never be 3-in-1 or 4-in-1 as Mary is now added to the picture. Don’t let these Xtians lie to you that God call them. As you can feel yourself, God does not call any Pastor. They are only looking for their daily bread (in africa and Asia) and are all confused in the developed world. Europeans and American are coming to Islaam (the fastest growing religion in the world) In Islaam, you will have tranquility because nobody is going to tell you to be born again, claim to be prophets or receive holy spirit to lie in the Bible (Jeremiah 8:8).
    Have you ever asked yourself where the name Bible came from? you won’t be shocked to know that it is not even found in the bible itself. Who asked Christians to go to church on Sundays/Saturday? There are many evidence that Christianity is not a way to salvation. It is a man-made religion and paganism. They want people to believe that Muslims are terrorist, Islaam is evil and Muhammad spread Islaam with violence and genocide. Lies! By those whitish sepulchre. Read and research about Islaam and you will be convinced. All they say about Islaam are lies! Wish you Islaam- Peace.

Being overweight or obese can be detrimental to your health. It is not advisable to have excess fat in the abdominal cavity because it can lead to some health issues. Getting your dream body will not be easy and you need to make some sacrifices to your diet. You will also need to turn a blind eye to some fatty foods.

If you’re ready to get rid of the belly fat, then stay put as Information Nigeria brings you some important tips that will help.

1. Avoid sugar and carbonated drinks

Did you know that consuming sugary substances like coke, fanta can lead to weight gain and a number of health problems like high blood pressure?. This is due to the high fructose content found in added sugars. Taking sugar-filled drinks may slow your metabolism and this in turn can make it harder for your body to burn fat. Fructose can only be metabolized by your liver. When you consume too much, you push your liver to its limit and it becomes overloaded, then it turns the fructose into fat and it ends up getting stored in your belly. To avoid putting yourself from risk, you should cut back on foods and drinks that contain huge amounts of sugar.

 

2. You also have to forgo junk foods like meat pie, cakes, rolls, candies, burgers, ice cream and cookies. You also need to do away with heavy foods like eba, akpu, pounded yam, rice among others. Switch up your eating habits and opt for a more balanced-diet if you want to burn your belly fat. Avoid consuming refined carbs like bread, pizza, potation chips etc. You should also stay away from processed and heavy foods because they contribute to stubborn belly fat. You should choose to eat proteinous foods like fish, eggs, and milk. starch contains fat, sugar and salt. They help a person feel fuller so you don’t end up looking for something to munch on after eating. It basically keeps hunger at bay.

3. Eat the right amount of fruits, vegetables, fibrous foods and whole grains – You can add vegetables, fruits and whole grains to your weight loss diet. They provide essential vitamins, minerals, fiber and other substances that are good for your body. Examples of fibre rich foods include; beans, broccoli, avocados, apples, oatmeal brown rice and whole grain bread.

4. Try to incorporate exercise into your daily or weekly routine – Exercise helps to speed up your metabolism and helps you shed weight. The bitter truth is that wearing just waist trainers and staying put in one position will not make you lose that stubborn belly fat. You should hit the gym.

5 Reduce alcohol intake – Excess intake of alcohol also leads to a host of health problems especially the build-up of fat in the belly area. Have you ever noticed that those who drink alcohol, especially men, often develop ‘pot-bellies’. Alcoholic drinks like beer provide your body with calories and very little nutrients. It can also increase your appetite. Replace the alcoholic drinks with water or alternate with low calorie, non-alcoholic beverages. Too much alcohol can cause liver damage and other serious health problems.

6. Try out apple cider vinegar – Apple cider vinegar is made in a two-step fermentation process. It is obtained from apples that have been crushed, distilled and fermented. Acetic acid is the main active component of apple cider vinegar. It is safe for consumption in small quantities and can be taken as a supplement. Do not also consume it straight from the bottle or in its pure form. Add 1 to 2 tablespoons to water before you drink. You can also add honey or lemon. It is best to drink it before your meals. Research shows it has many health benefits, such as lowering blood sugar levels.
