The ‘Belly-God’ is the major challenge with the Nigerian church and believers. I ran into a video recorded by a former National Assembly Lawmaker who is the most unserious Nigerian politician alive in my opinion. The fellow did a video recording of himself in his house in Dubai, prayerfully asking the righteous God to ‘service his greed’ and satisfy his avaricious appetite for vanity.
My heart sank into temporary despair and wondered if I was the only sane person feeling deeply irritated by this clown’s show of insanity. It’s very inhumane of a man to reveal his opulence to a people in deep poverty without any sense of morality. The show of shame should have been condemned vigorously by the Clergy and Moral Leaders in the nation, yet such matters will be swept under the carpet because of political affiliations and not conscientious positions.
The Apostle Paul mentioned the God some people serve as what I call the ‘Belly-God.’ I make bold to say that that inglorious former lawmaker is a worshipper of the ‘Belly-God’. They are people who serve their appetites without checkmating their tastes, they bow before their inner cravings for wealth without restraint, they lick the dusty feet of mammon regardless of how they acquire their proceeds. Their God is their Belly!
Could you pls be Inspired with this scriptures below, meditate on the words and receive inspiration, ‘for many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are enemies of the cross of Christ. Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly and WHOSE GLORY IS IN THEIR SHAME, who mind earthly things.’ (Philippians 3 v 18-19).
The above scriptures summarily put the life of many people, especially the former lawmaker into perspectives, their glory is in the shame. It is very apt and gives me comfort that the scriptures have concluded their end in destruction. I’ll share how to identify these categories of people so you can run from them.
HOW TO IDENTIFY PEOPLE WHO SERVE THE BELLY-GOD
- THEY ARE SHAMELESS: The Bible says their Glory is in Their Shame, meaning they are shameless. I have noticed that people that have no shame are not the type decent men should tag along with. They should be left alone or else they shall rub their shamelessness on you.
- THEY SERVE THEIR APPETITE: The reason for obesity is lack of restraint when one is hungry for bad food. No one can be obese if they eat only vegetables so you must curb your appetites. Whenever you see someone who doesn’t restraint himself and his appetites, RUN.
- THEY MIND EARTHLY THINGS: Paul said people who serve the ‘Belly-God’ mind earthly things and are VAIN in their dispositions. Clothes, jewellery, watches, shoes, designers, fashion, hairs, makeup, etc. They are so vain that they mind only earthy things and can also be termed worldly.
- THEY ARE GREEDY AND INSATIABLE: There are some people who don’t know when to say ‘enough’, they crave for more even when they don’t need more. The Clown I mentioned earlier has many cars and still asking God to help meet his greed and responsibilities. He is crying after being voted out of the National Assembly, he is a shameless greedy fellow.
I hope these 4 points will guide you in identifying people who serve the ‘Belly-God’. Keep your heart away from greed and be a Believer in conduct.
