Tompolo Urges Religious Leaders to Propagate Love and Stop Religious Extortion


Spiritual leader of Ijaw traditional religion, High Chief Oweizidei Ekpemupolo alias Tompolo has appealed to leaders of various religious groups to herald Love, truth and not propagate heresies for the purpose of extortion and fame.

He admonished religious leaders against use of fear sermons, which he decried as a tool to coerce worshippers/adherents for pecuniary gains.

He noted that tithes, offerings, alms, should not be the focal point of religious teachings, but the message of the Mother’s love, which he highlighted as an integral aspect of the Godhead that is being neglected.

He added that enforcement of the Mother’s love teachings, would liberate worshippers, the society from the shackles of fear, anger, hatred, violence and usher in the atmosphere and era of Love, peace, understanding and unity of purpose.

He again advised religious leaders to be prudent and truthful to inform worshippers that the nature of God is inherent in every man, and teach them how to harness this potential for the good of mankind, the universe and not continue to feed them with heresies and imprisoning their minds.

Tompolo further stated that one major contributor to the animosity and acrimony breeding amongst humans was the too much concentration on the father aspect of the Godhead which he mentioned as, Judgmental, rigid, strict and decisive, adding that people should begin to awaken the Mother’s love consciousness in them, as the both aspects are needed to serve as balance.
