From Adeboye To A Sikh Temple…How David Cameron Went From ‘God’ To ‘gods’ [Photos]
By Jojo Kwebena
I was pleasantly encouraged upon hearing the news this morning that the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, David Cameron, received prayers from our very own Nigerian Pastor Enoch Adeboye during the Festival Of Life Conference in London last night!
Hoping this news would be reflected in the usually cynical British media, I was left aghast to see the headlines today highlighting Cameron’s visit to a Sikh temple a few hours after praying with the Redeemed faithful.
From worshipping God to worshipping gods in a matter of hours! Dave even went to the extent of donning Sikh head apparel and engaging in some form of ‘ritual’ involving the throwing of coins inside a pool and kneeling down to intercede Sikh style. All of this while shoeless.
The sharp contrast in events highlights a sad but salient point – Mr Cameron visited Daddy GO not for any ‘spiritual guidance’ or ‘actual prayers’ but to take advantage of 45,000 potential voters in the crowd of Pentecostal Christians.
It reminds me how our staunch Muslim President-Elect Muhammadu Buhari also worshipped with Adeboye – even picking his pastor as a running mate. Not because of ‘principle’ – just politics.
