Sign Fireman Speaks on his Hot Girls in Lagos Poster

Posted in: , ,

I was surprised when the slightly light-hearted post I made last year about Sign Fireman and the Hot Girls in Lagos poster went viral and was published and syndicated by various media outlets. It remains one of the top posts on this blog with the #1 keyword for search, showing that it's an issue on the public mind. Today, this comment below was made on that post by Whitney Chad, who I can only assume is Sign Fireman's PR person. For those in Nigeria, read and see if Mr. Fireman has a point.

"The point is that God sent me to bring Twenty-First Century innovations that will change Christianity and make it have more results! Let me give you an example.

Recently, believers do soulwinning among believers! Churches “wins souls” from another church! That is not soul winning! That is souls transfer! They are fishing in the frying pan! Real soulwinning is reaching out to SINNERS and getting them saved! To do that, one has to go to where sinners are!


That is how Jesus did it! “And it came to pass, as Jesus sat at meat in the house, behold, many publicans and sinners came and sat down with him and his disciples” (Matthew 9:10).

And it brings criticism! “And when the scribes and Pharisees saw him eat with publicans and sinners, they said unto his disciples, How is it that he eateth and drinketh with publicans and sinners?” (Mark 2:16).

Jesus reaching out to sinners was misunderstood, but He didn’t care. Here was Jesus’ response to the criticism: “…wisdom is justified of her children” (Matthew 11:19). He called strategy for reaching out to sinners “wisdom,” and said that, contrary to the claims of critics, the strategy is not justified by how it looks but by its results!

Our HOT GIRLS flyer was a Twenty-First Century evangelistic innovation! We wanted to reach out to harlots. We wanted to take call girls off the streets around the location of the church. One of the times Jesus appeared to me He taught me that, to catch a fish, you have to use bait! Hence, we designed the flyer with a caption that would attract them! Contrary to the criticisms of critics, the strategy worked! Hundreds of girls were saved, including so many call girls! We gave those call girls money to move from the hotels and brothels to their own houses, jobs, capital for business, machines for starting a business, and we sent some of them back to school! Today, many of them are still saved, working, schooling, and some are even married! As Jesus said, the results have resoundingly justified the strategy!

I believe in hardcore, revolutionary evangelism; not the frying pan fishing that many churches are doing today!

Like Jesus did it, real evangelism involves our risking being misunderstood, and reaching out to unbelievers wherever they may be found! Let’s stop playing nice and launch out and do real soulwinning!"

  1. He makes a good point about reaching the unsaved in evangelism, but how does that translate to hot girls and that stupid poster?

  2. I honestly don't know what to say! This surprisingly my first time of hearing of such Dr Fireman! To an extent, i'm certain people who read these particular words of his might feel sympathetic somewhat. His words are just too "spiritually" logical (when you consider his bible references) that you can't just but help but want to believe him

    As a matter of fact,i first read this particular post before going to the one of last year and to say i was annoyed in the Spirit is an understatement! To "similize" God with games and business is the worst blasphemy i have ever heard!

    But when i considered all the aftermath..in his own words...of his "hardcore" evangelism, i mean changing those girls, "upgrading" them and all, i almost applauded his "spiritual strategy"

    This i will say though: God has given us the Spirit of discernment. The increase in False Prophets is not a new thing. We have been told! Everything still boils down to the fact that God alone knows those who are His!

    One clear fact is that nobody can "help" God do His work! In the long run, God always has His way. But i SMH for anyone found questionable by HIM!

    1. You spoke my mind completely.

  3. Hmm...don't know how to respond. This is a tough one. The Bible says who are you to judge another man's servant? To his master he either stands or he falls. So, let God be judge. Hmm...

  4. I guess Dr Fireman should start his hardcore evangelism from Arochukwu where he hails from... Or is it not where they have the long Juju of Arochukwu again?
