Buhari’s administration’s opposition, Reno Omokri has shared his opinion on deaths and burials of Christians, revealing that Christian wake keep is not biblical but a European custom.
The author took to Twitter to note that nothing is recorded in the Bible about Christian wake-keep. He urged people to read the scriptures before they hold, attend or participate in the event.He wrote, “Before you hold, attend, or participate in a ‘Christian Wake Keep’, Read The Scriptures. You wont find anything like that in them. It‘s a European custom. It‘s not Christian. Christ died, was buried the same day and rose. That’s the Christian model.
He spoke further on people pray for their deceased ones, called the act a ‘campaign after election. “Why do people pray for the dead? It is like CAMPAIGNING after ELECTION. SALVATION is ONLY for the LIVING. No amount of prayer can change the destination of the dead. David prayed and fasted for his son. When the boy died, David IMMEDIATELY moved on.
