Religion is a reaction to poverty – Reno Omokri

'Holy matrimony involves only the couple and their parents'

Former Aide of former President Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri, has said that it is poverty that make many people religious.

According to him, many Nigerians become less religious when they travel abroad because of condusive atmosphere.

He said in a pot on Tuesday:

“Poverty is why many people are religious and churchy. When these same people relocate abroad and see that their prayer requests are easily met in their new locations, they lose their religiosity. Religion is a reaction to poverty. Faith is a more reliable judge of Godliness. That is why after salvation, Christ taught more about wealth. Because without wealth, your spiritual health is at risk. Poverty alters your perspective.


“You make enemies out of innocent people. You blame ancestral curses and village people for your poverty, when in fact the problem is your location, which is overpopulated and underfunded. And fear of enemies, rather than love for God drives you to.”
