A Christian channel with the inscription, Red Letter, has been debut on the satellite. The channel according to the managers, was geared towards propagating the gospel of Eternal life as well promoting salient and selected programmes on the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Speaking with cross section of journalists, one of the managers of Red Letter Channel, Mr. Samuel Bob Manuel, CEO of Blum & Partner Limited who also spoke on behalf of his partner, Mr. Paul Stephen Egbaowo disclosed that, the channel is an educative and informative one aimed at inspiring lives and helping them towards the kingdom of God.
According to him, it is a channel to curb promiscuous movies and sensational songs that tend to lure people to the kingdom of darkness adding that, the contemporary movies and musics are not edifying the body of Christ.
“They promote sex and violence but Red Letter channel would give room for in-depth gospel programmes adding that it would create employment opportunity in terms of camera handling, production, continuity, prompter, script writing, line gospel worship among others.
“We are going to be broadcasting movie on faith and family values on the channel because we find out that a lot of Nollywood movies are base on sex and violence, we want to curb such things in the country and the world at large”, he said.
He explained that, the first quarter of the programme would be aired in 2017 on satellite which will be base on Bible exposition, the issue of Trinity Dogma, Gospel musical reality show, sitcom,drama series on the parable of Jesus Christ and Jesus epistle among others.
Also there will be a gospel chat show channel where we will be talking about various challenges Christians face in their family life and reality show called the seminarians.
Bob Manuel argued that, the gospel on the personality of the Trinity are adulterated saying that, there are only two personalities that made up the God-head, the Father and the Son adding that there is no Holy Spirit.
“We did a research and discovered that there is no Trinity because in John17 verse 3, John 14 verse 48, John 10 vs 28 , John 14 vs 16 among others pointed to the fact that there is no Trinity”, he said.
Bob Manuel also condemned most of Nigeria pastors whom he said have neglected the principles of Christ, rather preach wealth, health, marriage, prosperity among others in the church.
