2018 Prophecies: The Good, the bad and the ugly
Since the arrival of the New Year is being celebrated all over the world, Nigerian pastors, in what has become their tradition, have released series of prophetic messages for the year 2018. While some loyalists of the pastors believe in the messages; many Nigerians who took to social media knocked the pastors, labelling many of their so-called prophesies mere assumptions and permutations.
The social media commentators also cited many examples of failed prophesies from many of the pastors, while concluding that a lot of them lack the credibility to make prophesies and expect Nigerians to believe them.
It is also argued in some quarters that how come the yearly prophesies are usually negative. It is also queried that some of the prophesies consist irrelevant messages. For instance, social media pundits mocked a pastor who gave prophesy on the Kardashians. They said he (the pastor) must have been a fervent fan of E! (a celebrity channel owned by the Kardashians) to be familiar with their affairs.
Below are excerpts from some of the prophesies we tag the good, the bad and the ugly:
