Timini Egbuson during an interview on the podcast tagged “Lilian’s Coach” hosted by actress Lilian Afegbai said he left church because the church itself betrayed him.
According to him, he was a church boy who used to preach in the main churches when he was a teenager. He disclosed that as time went on, he realized that the church was full of pretenders. He disclosed that he decided to find God and have a personal relationship with him.
In his words, “I feel like me and God have a personal relationship. I’ve been betrayed by the church in the past. Like, I was a full church boy. In my teenage years, I used to preach in the main church on Sundays. Everything you think I have now in terms of swag and whatever, it was in church that I learned it.
Then I went to some other churches. But I just realized that there are a lot of pretenses. And I know it’s not a reason to stop going because obviously. So basically you know, it’s just a thing where I was just like okay let me find this man called God on my own. And that’s what we are doing right now.
There’s someone I’m seeing, or talking to, right now that introduced me to this whole Bible plan. I mean, sometimes I just lie to her when she asks “have you checked it this morning?” In terms of reading the Bible again and all that, I’m not really there yet but I like a one-on-one relationship with my God. Talking to him saying “how far baba? this is what I’m doing” and He’s been helping me make the best decisions so far. And it’s calm.”

jahdoris: It’s just like cutting off your head cos the hand,legs or any other part isn’t doing all right. Christ is still d head n infallible. But we, who is the body is full of imperfection. The church has a very high chances of hurting you. It has hurt me, but as the scripture said “what can seperate me from the Love of God….”
iamsupernaturalvictor; The church would mess you up! Anybody who has fully committed to being in church would understand what I’m saying. Be you in the choir, protocol, whatever it is, the experience you get out of it would depend on your personal relationship with God, because trust me people would gossip, they’d say all sorts, they won’t see you and they won’t ask questions, they’d backbite, it’s a long list. Would it hurt? Hell yes! But would you stop because of people? No! I love his honesty. Relationship with God is not a one way street, it’s a process.
omaafrik: My life changed when I started looking and following the God of men instead of men of God 👏🙌 know God personally !
realsegzy: Small fame like this the church will become their problem. In other religion its not always like this.
_joymicah: Church is a hospital! You don’t find perfect people in a hospital, all of us are there to repair the damaged parts and not turn away from the gathering of believers because the system is damaged.
therealsteve83: Absolute rubbish! When they get small fame, Church starts irritating them, they start hiding under the stupid sentence like “Don’t Judge” “Are you Assistant Jesus” “Me and God have personal relationships ” “Church is in the heart”… Make una continue una rotten lifestyle, una go still come back to this same media to cry out for help when it starts going bad.
