It has been a while that I have been to church…. Falz
Rapper and actor Folarin Falana popularly known as Falz, revealed during a TV interview that he does not go to church but believes in spirituality over religion.
We may recall that during his last album listening party his mother revealed this in her statement;
“Folarin, you don’t go to church and I am bothered. I hope you would start going to church this year.”
Falz however had this to say during his recent TV interview;
“I’m not an atheist. I believe there is a God. But I believe in spirituality over religion. I have nothing against the church or going to church. Everyone has the right to practice the religion they desire. It has been a while that I have been to church. It does not make me less of a Christian,
The reason is that I went to a few churches and, during sermons, I was put under undue pressure. There was a time that a pastor called me to the altar just to acknowledge my presence for being in church.
In my mind, I felt that the service was not about me. I felt that everybody was there to worship God, yet they were putting undue pressure on me. The pastor gave me the microphone to address the congregation and I was puzzled; what did he expect me to say to the congregation?”
