A Nigerian Social Media Influencer, Mr Vincent Olusola Arogbodo, has taken to his Facebook handle to share the experience he had with his local church when he got a high paying job with a multinational Tobacco Company.
In his words, the church was disappointed that a cell cordinator, would take up such a job, knowing it would affect his Spiritual life and more importantly, the image of the church.
See his full gist below:
In 2016, I joined a tobacco company that came newly into town to test the highly competitive market. In this industry, advertisement is not allowed in any form and we can only promote our products via POS and Direct Consumers’ Engagement. One day, we went out to carry out CE in some premium outlets: demonstrating the product usage is one of the things we must do.[the_ad id=”1123″]
I put fire on a stick of Cigarette and this picture was taken in order to showcase what we do. After that day’s work, I decided to check my gallery and uploaded the picture here not noticing the Cigarette in-between my fingers.

An elder in my church then, saw it, downloaded it and took it to the church so that my Senior Coordinators could see it. Unfortunately or fortunately, I was absent from the Morning Review that Sunday. I was a Leader in one Home Fellowship Centre at the time.
I was shocked to see my Coordinators storming my Home Cell Centre in the evening of that fateful day. They interviewed me to know if I was a smoker or not but I politely told them that my bills were being sorted as a result of whatever they can see in the picture. They made it clear that such act was ‘unChristianly.’
I told them how I prayed for a job and God gave me one in a Tobacco company. I also reminded them that I have never been a liability on the church because of what I was earning. I did not see any reason to refresh their memories of my financial commitment to the church as well.
I only resigned myself from the Home Cell Fellowship at the time and regained my peace. God is not an author of confusion and I will never allow any doctrine to unsettle my PEACE!
