Pastor WF Kumuyi, the General Superintendent of Deeper Life Bible Church spoke about running the race to obtain an incorruptible crown in their recent Bible Study service. The man of God spoke extensively about the race that Christians are running to get to the kingdom of God. It is an individual race and everyone will be treated individually at the end of the race. You read the book of 1st Corinthians 9: 24 which says
"Know ye not that they which run in a race around all, but one receive it the price so run that ye may obtain"
Here Paul is talking to the church at Corinth telling them the benefits of running the race to the end. There definitely will be a crown or price for those who finish successfully.
Pastor Kumuyi however state various instances that disallow one from finishing the race. the basic instance is sin but he laid more emphasis on some types of relationship that could deny one the entrance to the kingdom of God. The pastor talk about Girlfriend/ Boyfriend relationship, cultism, watching pornography and many others. The man of God warned youths against having such relationship because it's cool leads to fonication and immorality which are terrible sins in the Bible. This could be seen in the book of Galatians 5:19 which says
"Now the works of the flesh and manifest which are these Adultery, Fornication, Uncleanness, Lasciviousness...
In conclusion this basic sins will definitely deny one the ability to finish his/her race and get to the kingdom of God. According to the Pastor, Christians are to avoid those Sins.
