“I Have A Serious Concern” – Mike Bamiloye Passes Message To Church Instrumentalists

I HAVE A SERIOUS CONCERN
The Church Instrumentalists.
Those Young Men and Boys that play Musical instruments in the Church.
I don’t Understand Many of Them.
I come Across them everywhere I have gone.

As if their Attitudes have been Universally Agreed upon.
You will be Preaching, They will be
Fiddling with Guitar Strings.
You will be Teaching, many of them will be Sleeping or browsing.

Messages of great importance will be blaring out to the Congregation,
They will be using their Keyboard to Confirm what the Preachers are saying.
When Everyone is in sober reflections on the vital message, they will be playing Nollywood mood music.
AND THE ALTAR CALL IS MADE AND PEOPLE ARE COMING OUT FOR SALVATION OR REDEDICATION OF LIFE,
THEY WILL BEGIN TO PLAY:
“I surrender All…”

TO ENCOURAGE PEOPLE TO THE ALTAR.
BUT THEY MOST OF THE TIME DONT SEE THE REASON FOR THEM TO REDEDICATE THEIR LIVES TO JESUS.
AND THEY RARELY COME OUT FOR ALTAR CALLS.

I am Sorry, Maybe it is Only me that has observed this.

  1. I’ll be telling you why it’s wrong for Mike Bamiloye to call out church instrumentalists.
    The founder of Mount Zion Faith Ministries, Mike Bamiloye took to his Facebook account on the 29th of March, 2018 to call out on church instrumentalists.
    Attention: If you think this post is to run down men of God, please kindly leave this blog because I am attacking the message and not the messenger. Mike Bamiloye is a member of the body of Christ and I’ll never watch anybody attack him and go free, no matter what he does. But for his message, I’ll fight it to the death.

    As a church instrumentalist, I am highly displeased with his post and I’ll tell you why he shouldn’t have done that in this post.

    “So, What Did Mike Bamiloye Say?”
    These are the exact words in his post as at 30th March, 2018 (7:47am Nigerian time) when the post was retrieved:

    As at the time of retrieval, over 800 people had shared the post on social media, over 1000 reactions, and 422 comments with so much ill expressed about church musicians and this is the second time this is happening in just a few months.

    Top 3 Reasons Why I Think Mike Bamiloye’s Message Is Wrong
    Now that you’re aware of what is said, I’ll go ahead and give you top three reasons why Mike Bamiloye shouldn’t have called out on musicians.

    Reason #1 – It’s A Hate Speech
    If Mike Bamiloye was correcting church instrumentalists, that would have been a very different issue. Instead, he was attacking musicians and from the beginning of the post to the end of it, you can see how derogatory he sounded; no love, no respect, no sentiments.

    He even described the talk music we set the atmosphere with as Nollywood mood music when he said “When Everyone is in sober reflections on the vital message, they will be playing Nollywood mood music.”
    You could feel the heat of the hate in the comment section with lots of ill-hearted comments and replies.

    Reason #2 – He Was Generalizing
    He was generalizing all the flaws. He never pointed out that he’s seen good musicians with character — he generalized.
    There are lots of musicians who have the competence and character, who are saved and are resourceful to the kingdom. However, according to him “ I come Across them everywhere I have gone.” and for me this is Mike Bamiloye trying to say that in his decades of doing ministry, he has met only charlatans.
    This is wrong!
    If you want to correct musicians, be specific to those musicians and don’t sound generic because you’ll be hurting the musicians who have the character.

    Reason #3 – He Should Be Correcting Other Men Of God
    Church Instrumentalists have not done up to 10% of the evil I’ve seen in so many “men of God”. So, it’s inappropriate to call musicians out.

    We’ve heard among men of God, sex scandals, cases of witchcraft, rituals, financial misconduct, hypnosis, bitter church politics, assassination, and the list goes on and on.

    These are things that Mike Bamiloye should focus on as a man who’s been there for years that young ones should look up to.

    Jesus warned us to remove the log of wood in our eyes before the speck in others, therefore, men of God should sanitize themselves first before advising others.

    Final Words
    I also have a serious concern. So many church pastors, bishops, prophets, etc., out there are doing ministry to make money and their belly is their god. They do all sorts of witchcraft, and abominable practices that you know too well, sleep with church members, brainwash them, manipulate them and even go as far as collecting their destinies.
    I have seen “men of God” arrange miracles, and there are cases of them walking on air, calling God with their mobile phone or snapping a Baby at home from the Church with an Ipad. Some make their members eat grasses, others trample on them, and so many other things that time would fail me to highlight.
    These are things that we should focus on and they are more important than addressing church instrumentalists.
    There are charlatans everywhere; among ushers, pastors, protocol members, etc., but if you think you need to remind church instrumentalists about theirs, then we’ll help you wash your dirty linen in public.
