Reports have it that two Pentecostal churches in Owerri, Imo state are fighting over closeness.
The Churches are located around Toronto Junction in Uratta, Owerri North Local Government Area of Imo State.
Vanguard reports that the church feud started when a Pentecostal church, Mountain of Conquest Assembly, was laying the foundation of its church close to that of God’s Pillar Power Ministry.
The head of the God’s Pillar Power Ministry purportedly felt uncomfortable and made efforts to resist the erection of the new church very close to his.
Some members of each church bared their minds concerning the issue.
A member of God’s Pillar, “It is not proper that a church is located close to the entrance of our church.”
“Is this the only land suitable for this man of God to establish his own church? If he is looking for members, he can get them even when he is not in this arena. We think this is just to make his fellow man of God uncomfortable.”
On the other hand, a member of Mountain of Conquest Assembly who feels it was a divine arrangement by God said, “We have prayed and were directed, divinely, to come and establish our church here and nobody born of human can stop it.”
“We are not afraid because we have God and He will continue to guide us. Why should people fight over land that does not belong to them? He is a tenant here and we are also tenant. So, why grumbling over nothing?”
