His post below:

John 4:21-24

Jesus said, the time has come when you don’t have to worship God in the mountains nor the synagogue for God is a Spirit: and they that worship God must worship in spirit and in truth.

If you like continue to allow religious entrepreneurs to mislead you and enrich themselves, we will all be judged according to our deeds and not according to our beliefs.

God does not live in religious homes, your everyday prayer and fasting without application of good conduct is self deceit.

Call me all manner of Evil names, call me a juju worshiper, call me an idolator, but God is the final judge of all our actions, and in the end, it is our actions that will determine our position with God.
