#MentalHealth: Sam Adeyemi Speaks On Mental Issues, Nigerians, Daddy Freeze Reacts

Published

on

Over the weekends, twitter went crazy following tweets by respected man of God Sam Adeyemi of Daystar Christian Center as regards #MentalHealth, as he related the root cause of such issues to sin.


Social media has gone wild, with people outrightly showing their displeasure and disdain for the tweets, as others support the statement by the man of God based on foundational biblical principles.

“Daddy” Freeze, thought it wise to share his two cents on Daystar Pastor Sam Adeyemi’s trending thoughts on mental health.

***

Before brainwashed Naija folks start their usual ‘judge not’, let me seek guidance from the words of Apostle Paul from the book of;

1st Corinthians 6:3 KJV
[3] Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life?

Also to shut down the “touch not my anointed” verse that many pastors use as immunity from persecution, here is another bible verse that gives me the right to answer this.

1John4:1KJV
[1] Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

Armed with these 2 verses, I have the right to ‘judge’ and ‘try’ every spirit, to ensure that neither I,nor God’s sheep, are defrauded spiritually

Mental illness, as defined by Mayo Clinics, refers to a wide range of mental health conditions — disorders that affect your mood, thinking and behavior. Examples of mental illness include depression, anxiety disorders, schizophrenia, eating disorders and addictive behaviors. Now, according to recent reports, mental health experts in Nigeria have raised an alarm over the increase in cases of mental disorder in this country, and have called for adequate facilities and personnel to curb it. This also comes at a point when the Church has seen dramatic and explosive growth in Asia, Africa and South America. The growth of the African Church in particular is jaw-dropping according to Christianity.com!

Now, if the number of churches are increasing and the number of mental cases are increasing as well, isn’t it safe to suggest statistically, that the increase in Churches, is in symphony with increase in mental health disorders? The burden of this blame, with the evidence provided above, is too heavy to be placed on sin alone, as the noise from one church having 4 branches on the same street, is enough to spike insomnia and depression.

Furthermore, many pastors take the little money their poor congregation has with promises of tremendous returns, which more often than not never materialize, leading to depression and increase in mental health disorders. A friend of mine, who attends a new generation Pentecostal church, told me that her pastor told the poor people who came to beg for alms in the church, to bring the little they have, so that God can increase it! Imagine that!

The state of the Nigerian economy cannot be left out, neither can thecurse of crude oil’ which destroyed most of our other sources of revenue, leading the nation to mindlessly squander its resources, neglecting production and agriculture, slowly leading the nation into bankruptcy.

Dear Pastor Adeyemi,

According to an article on www.bbc.co.uk which states; “We have tended to think of psychological illnesses as a uniquely human trait. But that may be wrong. There is growing evidence that many animals can suffer from mental health disorders similar to those seen in humans. These unfortunate animals could help us understand how and why humans become mentally ill, and why these debilitating disorders ever evolved at all.”
Growing evidence suggests that animals also suffer mental illness, is this due to sin too?

Before brainwashed Naija folks start their usual ‘judge not’ let me seek guidance from the words of Apostle Paul in the book of 1st Corinthians 6:3 KJV[3] Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life? Also to shut down the “touch not my anointed” verse that many pastors use as immunity from persecution, here is another bible verse that gives me the right to question this;

1 John 4:1 KJV[1] Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.
Armed with these 2 verses, I have the right to judge and try every spirit to ensure that neither I, nor God’s sheep, are misled spiritually.

Remember the instance in the bible where a blind man was healed and the disciples asked if he sinned and Jesus said no?

John 9:2-3 KJV
[2] And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind?

[3] Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him.

CHIVIDO 2024: Moments From Chioma’s Bridal Shower | fab.ng

Chioma Avril Rowland, who is soon to marry award-winning singer Davido (CHIVIDO 2024), had a surprise bridal shower on Sunday night, attended by her friends and family.

In one video, Chioma explained that her fiancé Davido had secretly arranged the party. He had told her they were going to have dinner after their pre-wedding photo shoot, but it turned out to be her bridal shower instead.

She said, “Let me tell you a story. I know this is an event centre, and David said we were going to eat. He was trying to get the exact location, and when we got outside, he asked somebody something, and I said, ‘This is not a restaurant. I’m hungry, I want to eat.’ Then I saw balloons, I just started screaming.”

As Chioma walked into the party, the excitement was electric.

It was her night to celebrate her upcoming marriage, and the atmosphere buzzed with well wishes. Her friends and family couldn’t wait to shower her with love. They presented her with a sash proudly declaring “bride to be” and a stunning bouquet of roses. Even though her pink bodysuit looked amazing, Chioma opted for a dazzling switch into a short black gown that shimmered under the lights.

Later, amidst the joyous chaos, Chioma found some cherished moments with her fiance, Davido. They stole a few laughs and shared a sweet dance routine, their connection evident for all to see. The night wasn’t just about them though.

The party truly came alive with performances by renowned artists Iyanya and WurlD. Their sets kept the energy high, ensuring Chioma would forever remember this night as a celebration of love, laughter, and good music.
