Timini Egbuson: How The Church Betrayed Me. Nollywood actor Timini Egbuson has disclosed that he left the church because he felt betrayed by it.
Timini discussed how and why he left the church in an interview with Lilian Afegbai for her “Lilian’s Coach” YouTube show.
He said that he was a church member who, as a young man, preached in the main churches. He said that as time went on, he came to the conclusion that the church was full of impostors. He admitted that he made the decision to seek out God and develop a close relationship with him.
In his words;
‘I feel like me and God have a personal relationship. I’ve been betrayed by the church in the past. Like, I was a full church boy. In my teenage years, I used to preach in the main church on Sundays. Everything you think I have now in terms of swag and whatever, it was in church that I learned it.
Then I went to some other churches. But I just realized that there are a lot of pretenses. And I know it’s not a reason to stop going because obviously. So basically you know, it’s just a thing where I was just like okay let me find this man called God on my own. And that’s what we are doing right now.
There’s someone I’m seeing, or talking to, right now that introduced me to this whole Bible plan. I mean, sometimes I just lie to her when she asks “have you checked it this morning?” In terms of reading the Bible again and all that, I’m not really there yet but I like a one-on-one relationship with my God. Talking to him saying “how far baba? this is what I’m doing” and He’s been helping me make the best decisions so far. And it’s calm.
