Our Manifesto: This is what believes in

Pastor Charles Osasuwa of Rock of Ages Christian Assembly Inc has called on Christians to build their own houses. He said being a tenant is a sin as they cannot serve God and have another lord in the form of a landlord.

The clergyman said when he sees someone who has a job, the first advice he always dishes out to them is to go and build their house.

He said that someone’s first home is a building of necessity and not the person’s main house.

“The tenant is always at the mercy of the landlord. The landlord can call the tenant anytime and he can request to use his apartment anytime. The Christian who is a tenant should work towards freeing himself from the second Lord which is the Landlord,” he said
