According to him, a nation that is so religious but denies the power of righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Ghost is a sick nation; and a nation where disunity and illegalities are upheld, where there is so much corruption, where destruction of lives and properties have become the order of the day is a very sick nation.
He expressed displeasure at the fact that the Church has abandoned evangelism, soul winning and is now engaged in buying and selling. He said many men of God are frustrated in ministry and so they engage in all sorts of evil practices and thus lead the people astray. Therefore, he warned all involved in such practices to know that salvation and breakthrough can only come when one is truly a servant of Jesus Christ.
The Venerable used songs and hymns to buttress his point that God is the best friend anyone could have; because He is an ever present help in times of need. He said God is always on time, and that delay is not denial. Hence, he urged all experiencing pain and suffering to never feel that their situation is hopeless, because God would never abandon anyone who truly serves Him.
