My own God is the river goddess: Nigerian lady who quit Christianity opens up

A Nigerian lady, Chinaza Adaigbo, who dumped Christianity for the water deity has slammed Nollywood for painting water and the African tradition as evil.

Chinaza spoke at length about her water deity during an interview with popular content creator Lucky Udu.

The former Winners Chapel church member said water has supernatural powers and has nothing to do with evil as portrayed by people.

According to her, water is a gift from God, She aimed a dig at Christians and Muslims saying if water was evil, they won’t use it for baptism and washing their feet before entering their prayer centres. In her words:

“I believe that water has supernatural power because it is a gift from the creator. It has nothing to do with evil as so many people portray.

“Now, if water is evil, why do Christians enter the river to do water baptism?

Why do Muslims use water to wash their feet before entering their worship centre? It tells you that water has a supernatural power and a spiritual benefit.”

Chinaza said pastors do come to her

Chinaza said when she communes and prays she feels the presence of the energy in the water. Contrary to the movies, she said they do not offer humans but livestock to the water goddess.

She also recalled how she saw herself in the water in dreams when she was a Christian, adding that pastors do approach her for help.
