Akuro Parker: Big Churches Cannot Make People Rejoice, But When The Righteous Rule… Jesus Rated Justice Higher Than Tithing

(By Silas Ofori) – Christians have been reminded of the observation of Jesus Christ, while he walked on earth that justice is more important than tithing in advancing his kingdom values and lifestyle. He also said ( in Matthew 23:23) that mercy and faithfulness are weightier than tithing. These observations were made by Deacon Akuro Parker, an architect who is championing the Kingdom Education campaign across churches in Nigeria in a chat with Notable Outcome in Port Harcourt.

Deacon Parker, who was worried that the levels of injustice and other forms of crimes are on the increase despite the phenomenal church growth in Nigeria, said that the church of God, especially the Pentecostals are not providing platforms for their members to be politically informed on how to be relevant in the politics of their states and country.  He further explained that the kingdom project is beyond salvation and church growth, but about God coming into the world system through His channels – His children, to assert his power, glory and might against Satan’s dominion.

While describing the church as the accredited solution centre to proffer solutions to the problems of nations, regretted that the church has been lukewarm and lacking wisdom on justice and why the defense of justice is more important than other sacrificial Kingdom services. The architect further stated that the gap created by lukewarmness has been the reason why misguided Christians ignorantly fight for political parties against the kingdom interests, thereby defeating the enthronement of righteous leadership in Nigeria.

Responding to a question, Deacon Parker said that all the efforts of the churches towards establishment of justice, peace and development are not producing the desired results because righteous leaders are not enthroned , adding that the people will rejoice only when the righteous rule, ‘’and not when we have big churches’’. He therefore called for Kingdom political education that will enhance the capacity of believers to use the political platform to establish justice on earth.
