Pastor Joshua Iginla gives out 22 cars, millions to celebrate birthday

The Senior Pastor of Champions Royal Assembly, Kubwa, Abuja, Joshua Iginla, on Sunday gave out 22 cars and millions of naira ranging from N50,000 to N500,000 in celebration of his birthday and his wife’s as well as unveil 33 book titles he wrote, reports the News Agency of Nigeria.
This show of affluence many have criticized as a repositioning of Christianity that stands the bible on its head for such almsgiving is meant to be done in secret. That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly – Matthew 6:4.
Presenting the cars, among which were 10 SUV cars to the beneficiaries, Iginla challenged the well-to-do in the society to assist the less-privileged. He said he had tasted poverty and knew how it felt, therefore the affluent should help the less-privileged.
“My birthday is all about giving to the needy. What I do here is just 10 per cent of what I do secretly. I don’t give to show up; I give to teach people and to provoke them to give. I have many people on scholarship, I have widows on my payroll, we have rescued prostitutes and empowered them with skills acquisition programmes. I have orphans I am taking care of. I have schools of the handicapped that we have been assisting and physically-challenged students irrespective of their religions. Gospel is practical, not only spiritual,” Iginla announced at the event.
It was the third time that he would be giving out all his cars without leaving anyone behind for himself, he said; an indication that none of the cars was brand new, perhaps.
It was Gov. Samuel Ortom of Benue State that unveiled Iginla’s books and he commended him for his hard work and generosity.
The occasion was attended by Senators Grace Bent, Anthony Kila and Effiong Bob, Onyeka Onwenu, Tope Alabi, Chris Morgan, and 16 Nollywood actors, including Zack Orji, Francis Duru, Alex Usifo and Fathia Balogun, six of whom were beneficiaries of Iginla’s car gifts.
