A girl identified on Twitter as Idomagirl has taken to the social media platform to advise people against preaching or quoting the bible to grieving Christians.
According to the young lady, people should be allowed to grieve without being told about what the bible says about their current situation.
In her words:
"Anytime a fellow Christian is grieving and they express how they feel, abeg refrain from preaching to them or quoting scripture.
"You think they’re not aware of those verses? That’s not the time to preach at all, sometimes just be quiet."
She said people should desist from showing how strong their relationship with God is when others are grieving. According to her, people who do this lack emotional intelligence.
"When someone says they’re questioning God’s existence in the face of terrible grief that is not the time to show how strong your own relationship with God is. No one cares if “your God has never failed you”, go and sit down somewhere."
