In 2005, while having my lunch at a cafeteria in Umuahia, Abia state, Nigeria, a well dressed young man approached me. He informed me that he had a message from God to me. Okay, let me hear the message. He introduced himself as a Pastor, and that God told him to tell me to provide some money to develop his ministry. After recovering from disbelief, I managed to ask him, what do I call that money, investment? He replied, you can call it that. Oh sorry brother, I don’t do that kind of investment.
Before he could add another word, I reminded him that the only time Jesus got angry, as reported by the bible, was when he saw some people trading in his father's house. Thus investing in your ministry may be construed as trading in God's house, which may be counted as blasphemy to me – using the name of God in vain.
