Reno Omokri has few words of advise for churchgoers, who believe every word from pastor’s mouth. The inspirational writer on Friday morning said, if ‘any pastor tells you that money is coming your way, and then asks you to shout Hallelujah if you believe has lied to you’.

According to him, this is because ‘the only way money is coming to you is if you worked, invested or traded. If all you did is shout hallelujah, money ain’t coming!’

He further said that churchgoers should verify everything a pastor said to them with the Bible, and that they need to stop believing every doctrine and statement that does not have scriptural backing.

“I am sorry to say, any pastor who tells you money is coming your way and ask you to shout hallelujah if you believe it, has lied to you. The only way money is coming to you is if you worked, invested or traded. If all you did is shout hallelujah, money ain’t coming! #RenosNuggets
