The Founder of Rock of Ages Christian Assembly Int’l Inc., Pastor Charles Osazuwa has claimed that it is a sin to have a landlord as Christians should have only their lord – Jesus Christ.
In a Facebook post he made on Thursday, the pastor advised young people to start building their own homes as soon as they start working and earning income.
“According to scripture, you are supposed to have only one lord so when you have a landlord you have two lords. You’ve never heard this before. So to be a tenant is a sin,” he said, quoting Exodus 20:5.
“The tenant is always at the mercy of the landlord. The landlord can call the tenant anytime and he can request to use his apartment anytime. The Christian who is a tenant should work towards freeing himself from the second lord which is the landlord.”
He went ahead to further advise that Christians should not think of building a mansion but should first plan to get out of the hold of landlords. “Look for land anywhere and build even if it is a two-room apartment,” he said.
According to him, “A church that operates in a rented apartment is having two lords. This should not be.”
