Christian Social Movement of Nigeria (CSMN) held a Christian political mobilization meeting on Saturday, 23rd May, 2020, under its Directorate of Politics and Governance. The meeting, which was held online, commenced the task of mobilization and harmonization of Christians for effective participation in Government.

While Christians constitute the largest group in Nigeria and is the most enlightened and educated segment, lack of harmonization has often turned them into minority during elections. The missing key in Christian effectiveness in political power play is lack of harmonization. If Christians do not become effective participants in exercise of political power, the instrument of the State shall continually be used to afflict and decimate them.
CSMN, as the socio-political arm of the Church is therefore calling on Christians to come forth and engage politics.

The current fight against the deadly Corona Virus Disease (COVID-19) is a global battle that has assumed multi-faceted approach. There are those medical experts and researchers who are exploring the possibility of a preventive vaccine that can be used to safe-guard people from being infected by the virus in the first instance. And there are also those of them who are developing a curative drug that can heal those people already infected. Another set of scientists are sniffing the viral world to ascertain the origin of the disease so as to provide a scientific platform for the development of both preventive and curative drugs and vaccines.

The current prevailing challenge of the Corona Virus Disease (COVID-19) started in the industrial city of Wuhan China, in the latter part of 2019. Like a child’s play and before long, it blossomed into the mother of all viral diseases and had decimated and continues to decimate human population worldwide. As the COVID-19 pandemic rages on without any prospect of abating or cure in sight, the lives of the masses of the people have been placed on the line, sandwiched between the killer disease and the ravaging poverty in the land.

GOVERNMENT UPON HIS SHOULDERS

(Sharing the Vision of CSMN)
Part 3

In 2018, we received some visitors from some leaders in the North with a peculiar message. The northern leaders explained that for Nigeria to stand securely, it has to be on two legs. The two legs are Christianity and Islam because politics in the country has evolved to politics of religion. It is no longer politics of tribalism as it was under the founding fathers of the country. There has been an evolution of politics in Nigeria.

Onitsha, Eastern Nigeria,
4th April 2020

Not less than fifty (50) defenseless Christians were hacked to death in Nigeria in the month of March 2020. While twenty-five deaths were recorded in the first half of March 2020, twenty-five others took place in the remaining half of the month, bringing the total to at least fifty (50). The killings were solely perpetrated by the Jihadist Fulani militants who also killed no fewer than ten Christians in first two days of April 2020. The monitored killings did not include those killed during the period by Boko Haram terror jihadists, if any.

GOVERNMENT UPON HIS SHOULDERS

(Sharing the Vision of CSMN)
Part 2

The conclusion of Part 1 reads as follows:
“The purpose of God is that Christians should bring a kingdom mindset into the public domain and establish for the country God’s moral standard of truth, righteousness and integrity. Unfortunately, Jude 4 caught up with us because we did not comply with Jude 3.”

Vision: “GOVERNMENT UPON HIS SHOULDERS”

Part 1

Christian Social Movement of Nigeria (CSMN) is inviting Christians to participate in establishing the government of the kingdom of God in Nigeria. This is government based on righteousness and justice.

The vision of CSMN is taken from Isaiah 9: 6. Christ is the Head while the Church is His body. Since Government is decreed by God to rest on His shoulder, it means the “body of Christ” is entrusted with provision of Godly Governance on earth. It is time for the Church to redefine its theology of Christian engagement in politics.

CSMN held a meeting on 21st March, 2020 in Lagos, (below limit of Govt. restriction on Public Health) and the brethren in attendance agreed as follows:

SUPPORT FOR IDPs

Participating brethren agreed that mobilization of Christians, to take care of persecuted Christians, particularly those in IDP camps, should be sustained. Other areas of concern are provision of Christian intervention on issues affecting Christians and Democracy in the country.

Based on request, CSMN seeks to clarify as follows:
 
WHAT IS CHRISTIAN SOCIAL MOVEMENT OF NIGERIA (CSMN)?
