    I don’t understand the joy behind celebrating unbelievers, many of their biography contains adulteries, what is the essence of this site?
    It is visit by many and I don’t expect seeing someone is/was a baby mama to married man.
    What is your joy? is it to promote unrighteousness?

    You are even describing them with their heavy make-up while even on the garments!
    I shook my head seeing them and I almost cry.
    I appreciate those that are exemplenary of the fold.

    Let us know what we post on Internet, we can’t be continue promoting unrighteousness because they are doing well or are public figure. It is nothing but vain!

    I will advise before any information to be launched on air, let it be scrutinise by some bodies!

    God help you and strengthen you to announce Him to the world!


    • Joy says:

  15. Olalekan says:

    4 cryn out loud, how as that concern the producer of this site. Now i know some leader in dis church are senseless, one of dem is this Akinyele Emmanuel, dat is if you are an elder. Someone bring a story like dis for us and all you can utter is nonsense, anyway, common sense is not common,

  16. Oshoffa paulina says:

    Most of them just come for the spiritual work and go.seeing them in sutana doesn’t mean they are!

  17. Akinleye Emmanuel says:

    Please, don’t lost the mission and primary mindset of your work on social media, if you don’t have important issue to discuss then don’t just post anything that came to your mind on social media. Some of the entertainer you posted don’t represent the original standard that the founder ( baba SBJ) led down, some of the people you listed above are surrounded with controversies in the film and music industry; which i believe the church will not to ready to associate with them but basis on lack of leaderships, everybody think celestial is a free church that has no standard both in human and moral ethnic.
    During our childhood time, you can’t see ladies/women with heavy makeup entering the church because the usher will not allow them but look at some of the pictures u posted, some with big necklace, big ear rings and heavy make-up. From your comment on each person, it show you knew what people are saying about them. Obviously some of them are outstanding in the society with VERY good behaviour why some of them are just a misconception to the church.
    In conclusion, can someone with negative thought concerning celestial church change his/her mind with some of the people you posted. Thank’s

  18. Adeola Olaniyan says:

    Wow. This is a lively compilation. Mr. Alinge, more Greace to your elbow. You are really doing well. People like you should be more encourage to put things right in our church but we are misguided by some misfortune leaders. May God help us all.
