British-Nigerian actor, John Boyega has asked Christians to boycott any church that ignores the BLM campaign.
In a tweet that has gone viral, Boyega wrote:
“Don’t go back to a church that ignores the current issues. Prosperity preaching every Sunday. Kmt”
Boyega has been thrown up as one of the leaders of the anti-racist demonstrations that had engulfed cities of western nations since the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis, Minnesota on 25 May.
Christians. Don’t go back to a church that ignores the current issues. Prosperity preaching every Sunday. Kmt.

On Saturday, in asking for a boycott of prosperity churches, Boyega was still treading the theme of the BLM protests.
“This is a good time to question absolutely everything. You want to go back to the same old system?”, he asked in another tweet.
Challenged by someone who signed onto Twitter as J.D.@Probs_Not_Sprog as to whether Boyega understands the reason people go to church, the 28 year-old Boyega replied: “We are the church. Yes we are”.
