Veteran Nollywood Actress, Kate Henshaw believes that Christians should not depend or wait on what their pastors say or what church leader say rather they should read the Bible to know what God said in his word.
She said it’s an act of laziness for Christians to lean on what their pastor says about them instead of the teachings of God in the Bible.
Kate Henshaw shared this via her twitter handle as she berated Christians that still engage in such practice.
“Its pure laziness 2 not know dword of God 4 yourself if you are a Christian.
“My pastor say, my pastor, says…”
“God gave us all gifts & that includes a functioning brain Brain, How do you suspend your thinking for another’s words? The Lord knows those who are HIS.”

How do you suspend your thinking for another's words?
The Lord knows those who are HIS.

Her post expectedly generated a handful of reactions;
You forgot to mention those ones who see God as "God of their Pastors," calling Him "God of so-so and so" when they pray and filling in the blanks with their Pastors names. The unfortunate thing is a lot of us are in error and are ready to die there.

A whole lot have perished stupidly because of that word, my pastor say. Even if you don't know the word for yourself, at least you have sense to decide a bit about any situation you see yourself. Sadly, in this side, people worship pastors than our actual Lord.

God Almighty will bless you for this tweet ma. The kind of religion we are practicing in Nigeria will only breed religious bigots in the near future. Even people of the same faith are intolerant of each other because of lack of reading the holy book for yourself.

I had one of the most irritating talks of my life over this yesterday. Man kept talking about his pastor this, pastor that. I asked him if God gave Bibles to only pastors and access to Him was through them. No answer. I asked him if his pastor had his Mansion key…….no answer
