The leader of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, Primate Ayodele, on Thursday declared that there is no religion in heaven.
He said there is nothing like Christian heaven or Muslim heaven, adding that religion was created by humans and it has been a source of great divide among them.
He lamented that religion has done more harm than good to humanity.
In a statement issued by his spokesman, Oluwatosin Osho, Ayodele disclosed plans to build a multi-million naira mosque in Lagos State.
The renowned prophet explained that Jesus Christ didn’t preach religion but humanity; hence it doesn’t matter whether one is a Christian or Muslim, “we are first human before anything else.”
He said: “I believe there is no religion in heaven, there is nothing like Christian heaven or Muslim heaven. Religion was created by humans and it has been a source of great divide among humans. I don’t know the reason behind religion but it has done more harm than good to humanity.
‘’My decision to build a mosque is not for self-glorification but to eliminate religion and embrace humanity. Jesus Christ never preached religion, he taught us to show love to people and never asked for the religion of anyone before he healed them.
“Jesus Christ is my model and since he didn’t preach religion, it’s best that I follow him whom I serve. I am not a religious fanatic because it won’t take me to heaven. I believe co-existing, cohabiting and showing love to everyone is the greatest religion anyone can adopt.
‘’I have done wide consultation, I have spoken with leaders from the Muslim communities about my decision to build a massive mosque and their responses were enormously encouraging. I will build the mosque and hand it over to the Muslim leaders. Also, I will have no interference whatsoever in its operation.’’
