‘I don’t do religion’- Toke Makinwa

Radio personality turned inspirational speaker, Toke Makinwa, who has been in the news in recent times over her troubled marriage, has words for those who are of the opinion that successful people are not Godly or are not good Christians.

Toke took to her Instagram page to express her thoughts over the issue, noting in her comments that religion poses one of the biggest problems in the world today.

“I don’t do religion, I think one of the major problems in the world today is religion. Wars have started in the name of religion, people are lost in certain doctrines, they don’t know who God is. God is not a poor God, God does not delight in poverty!

Being a Child of God does not mean you shouldn’t desire the fine things of life. The street of heaven is made of Gold. Stop buying the lies sold to you. God wants you to flourish, to dominate, to subdue the earth. You can dream big, it is your duty to carry the light of God. Stop with the Vanity upon Vanity talk, every single person that worked with and for God was blessed. So blessed at that.

Those days, it was in cattle, land and much more. If that doesn’t tell you that you should be blessed, I don’t know what will. My last post inspired this.”

Toke, who also doubles as a TV host, further opened up on the notion by stating that not every successful person has sold their soul to the devil.

“I just feel the need to encourage someone out there. Find God on your own and work out your own salvation. Your father owns the heavens and the earth, you should be at the top. Stop judging, not every successful person has sold their soul to the devil.

“You don’t know their relationship with God, Jesus met the lady at the well and asked her for a drink, she had been married many times and was living with a man that wasn’t her husband but Christ went there because he knew she would come to draw water. Do you think Jesus needed the water? You think he couldn’t command water to rise? He knew she needed salvation, he went there because he knew she would come and he approached her not with judgement but with kindness. God loves us all.” She added.
