signn2It is bizarre how some people will go extra length all in the name of making money, including using the name of God. There has been several reports of the activities of pastors who have perfected different strategies to convince hapless Nigerians to part with their valuables in the name of sowing of seed, and investigation has revealed that the senior pastor of Perfect Christianity Mission, Dr. Sign Fireman, may actually be one of those pastors who will have their members for donation rather salvation.

His brand of evangelism first came to our notice when a report of how he wooed Nigerian actresses to his church was revealed some years back through an advertorial placed by his church. The message of the ad, “All The Hot Girls In Lagos Attend Dr. Fireman’s Church” became an issue of controversy in the Christian community. Many pastors argued that against the teachings of the Bible that says Christians should not be equally yoked with the unbelievers. They pointed out the use of “hot” for girls just like the slangs among guys in the secular world and this prompted our findings into the activities of the man who is hardly addressed as a pastor.

Findings revealed that unlike other Nigerian pastors who would want to assume the role of fathers to their congregation, Dr. Fireman’s mode of dressing portrays him as anything but fatherly. With his dress sense one can easily mistake him for an attention-seeking Nollywood actor just like many who throng his church every Sunday; and it would be right if he’s called an actor because the signs the pastor shows may actually be a process of grooming himself for the screen in the near future. The choice of siting his church in Surulere and the classy cars with which he cruises around with town put together with his tall and athletic posture which he cannot but flaunt in tight fitting garbs and which was complemented by his white beards would have been attracting the attention of many movie producers who have their base in his neighbourhood while cramming the face of his male Nollywood congregation with lines of worry.

He has allegedly been at a time or the other linked to one Nigerian actress or the other. He was at a time mentioned to be having it thick with Empress Njamah but that has since ceased to be.

Recently Global News was able to get a video documentary by one Sheyi Rhodes, an investigative journalist of “Unreported World”, a news medium that is based outside the shores of the country whose research on Nigeria’s millionaire pastors exposed the activities of Dr. Fireman which Nigeria-based journalists have not been given a chance to do.

In the documentary, the young man was allowed to go into the church with his cameraman to record proceedings during the church service. This, we gathered, was allowed because Fireman thought it was another form of publicity for his growing church, but in the course of the service the pastor removed the jacket he wore on a body hugging T-shirt while he called those who had been unsuccessful in life and unlucky with love to come out for deliverance.

The deliverance show was performed by Sign Fireman like a professional Hollywood actor as he went into dialogue with the spirit before sending it out. The event that ensued is only fit for the movie screen as the pastor began by commanding the spirit to do his bidding with no need to call the name of Jesus. Unknown to many, among those to be delivered were those close to the pastor and this much was revealed later in the documentary as she was discovered to be the pastor’s receptionist.

Another of such was when he claimed to be healing the sick. A man who was said to be crippled started working but this according to the journalist who compiled the information was all lies as he saw the guy walking into the church un-aided before the service whereas there were so many in the congregation who really needed the miracle but were given any chance. It was also observed that a young boy who was said to have been unable to walk for more than six years was able to walk in the video when Dr. Fireman prayed for him. Interestingly the young boy also walked into the church normally. And even though he had a hunchback, it was only his alleged walking problem that was “solved” leaving him with other ailment, raising questions as to whether or not hunchback disorder is too much a problem for God to solve in Dr. Fireman’s church.

The pastor who drives around in luxury cars ranging from Range Rovers to Hummer and Toyota Sequoia, all painted yellow, sees God as a very easy game. During one of his meetings with his church pastors, and to further bolster his word he explained to his pastors the importance of making sure they let the people know that they can meet their everyday need and that it is only by doing these that they will only be able to entice the people into coming to the church and this seems to have worked well for the church as his church boasts of more than 40 branches nationwide even when his ministry is far less than 20 years.

Sources revealed that he leaves with huge amount of money at every service he organizes as he encourages his members to give to the pastor who will in turn give some back to the church for development and this much is dramatised at every service of the church as members who are inspired during his services are regularly seen dropping money at his feet and the money later freighted away in Ghana-must-go bags.

While this is happening many of his congregation members are wallowing in abject poverty and are still giving whatever little they earn to their pastors who live in such luxuries.
