Controversial on-air personality (OAP), Daddy Freeze has attacked a pastor of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, for asking members of the church during a cross over service to buy comb and comb their hair forward and not backward.
According to Freeze, the pastor told the members that by combing their hair forward, forwardness and not backwardness will be their portion.
He wrote: “Samson in the Bible had dreadlocks… how would he have combed his hair backward or forward?
“All these demented doctrines by delusional dingbats that don’t have a clue about Christianity…
“◄ Judges 16:13 ► If you weave the seven braids of my head into the fabric…”
2019: CAN declares 3 days prayer over alledged threat to democracy
The Christian Association of Nigeria has declared a three-day prayer over what it described as a threat to democracy in the country.
It stated that the decision was informed by the “recent political drama unfolding in our nation.”
The acting CAN General Secretary, Daramola Bade, in a statement on Tuesday directed churches nationwide to mobilise their members for the prayer from August 27-29 to seek God’s face concerning the social and political state of the nation and for the peaceful conduct of 2019 elections.
The Christian body asked the faithful to pray against the election of evil politicians in 2019 and also for peaceful co-existence and an end to bloodshed and violence across the nation.
It also admonished Christians to pray for “unity and mutual respect for each other within the three arms of the government.”
The statement read in part, “Following the recent political drama unfolding in our nation that is becoming really embarrassing and constituting big threats to our nascent democracy, the leadership of the CAN has called for a three-day prayer to be observed in all churches in Nigeria for divine protection for our nation and democracy.”
“In view of the above, we request all bloc Chairmen, Zonal Chairmen, States’ Chairmen, local and all church leaders to mobilize our members nationwide for three days of prayer from August 27 -29 to seek the face of God concerning the social and political state of our nation and for peaceful conduct of 2019 election,” it said.
The CAN also asked the churches to pray for divine direction for the political leaders and for the release of Boko Haram captives, including Leah Sharibu and the remaining Chibok girls.
“We are to pray for economic prosperity of the nation and deliberate effort of the government towards providing gainful employment for the teeming population of unemployed youths in Nigeria.
“For the Church’s victory over the forces of darkness that are working against the wellbeing of the Church in Nigeria and for the unity of the Church and that those causing destabilisation would repent from their evils and pursue unity or risk divine judgment,” the CAN implore

The Lagos State Government has announced plans to engage some religious leaders, including pastors and imams, and place them on a salary structure.
This is a way of carrying out reorientation of the citizenry to shun corruption and immorality.
The development was made public by the Lagos State commissioner for home affairs, Abdulhakeem Abdulateef, during a sensitization programme for imams and scholars across the state, on Thursday, July 26, Daily Trust reports.
The commissioner disclosed that the state government would continue to interact with religious leaders, and tasked them to be above board and encourage their followers to shun corruption.
He said: “We shall be willing to even engage many of them by making provision for their salaries so that they can assist government to re-orientate the people for good.
“Imams and Pastors are believed to be men of God. So we need all of you to help us to encourage the right values in the society; particularly in the area of accountability and anti-corruption.
“We must remember that the Almighty Allah will ask all of us to render account of our deeds in the hereafter. So, the Imams and other religious clerics should lead us in the right direction because they are our leaders.”
