Folarin Falana Falz: Why I Stopped Going To Church

falz stopped going church

Rapper Folarin Falana has revealed why he stopped going to church.

The entertainer who said his mother is worried that her son hardly goes to church gave his reasons in a recent chat with Saturday Beats.

Here are his reasons :

“I have nothing against the church or going to church; everyone has the right to practise the religion they desire but personally, as a Christian, it has been a while that I have been to church. It does not make me less of a Christian.

“The most important thing is spirituality and your personal connection with God. The reason I haven’t attended a church service in a long while is because I went to a few churches and during sermons, I was put under undue pressure. There was a time that a pastor called me to the altar just to acknowledge my presence for being in church.

“In my mind, I felt that the service was not about me. I felt that everybody was there to worship God, yet they were putting undue pressure on me. The pastor gave me the microphone to address the congregation and I was puzzled; what did he expect me to say to the congregation? These are some of the issues.

I just want to go to church and worship God like a regular member of the congregation. I do not want that kind of attention. I was hoping that I would go to church on a Sunday and it would not be like any other day I’m at a public place or doing a show”.

  1. I don’t blame you, I went through that situation and have stopped going there. My presence is to know more about God not about me exposing myself to odd situations that I am not comfortable with. Some people crave such publicity, but I don’t. We are all of different parameters, your faith is between you and your God.

  2. U aren’t meant to go to church to please anione nah…….. Going to Church doesn’t make anione more holi dan d other…..reasons u gave aren’t a gud one ko

  4. It is only when you are in his shoes that you can understand what he is saying, just in summary, he don’t want to be treated as a semi-God in the present of God.

  5. THE ONLY WORDS PASTORS KNOWS ARE TILDES, COMMITTMENTS, NEST WEEK IS SPECIAL AND OFFERINGS. CAN YOU IMAGINE??? OYAKILOME THE DEVIOCY??? COMING TO ENGLAND TO COLLECT GATE FEES OF TEN POUNDSAT WEMBLY STADIUM, WHEN INFACT STADIUMS ARE MEANT FOR FOOTBALL OF TENNIS. GUESS WHAT???? THERE WILL BE ANOTHER BIG BOWL AT THE MIDDLE OF THE STADIUM FOR COLLECTIONS

    ******** ARE ARM RUBBERS JUST AS THE WHITE MEN USED IT TO RUB AFRICA

  6. If anyone is spiritually sound, and seeks true relationship with God, then it will be easy for you to dictate when you have entered inside business center in the name of Church.

    Since almost everybody is looking for miracle,quick one for that matter, the business center will keep on growing in Africa and Nigeria in particular in the name of Church.
