IN recent years, we have witnessed the mushrooming of new religious sects. Christians have taken the lead and every sect has come up with a unique ‘selling’ proposition to appeal and attract new followers from across section of the community.
Worth noting, most of these newly established sects or churches are run by self-proclaimed prophets who claim authority from the Almighty father in heaven and are strategically located in cities and major towns across Africa.
They claim to have spiritual powers bestowed unto them by Almighty Lord and as such they can change lives and turn human misery into everlasting joy. Some have gone extra miles to claim ghostly powers to raise the dead from death.
