Sterling Bank is in soup! Hot soup!! Boiling hot soup!!!
Some social media users are calling Christians to boycott the bank for the next one year for its temerity in comparing the rising of Jesus Christ from the dead with Agege bread in an Easter message.
Agege bread is a type of heavy, Lagos bread known for its heftiness due to the effect of yeast on flour.
The bank is yet to apologised or withdraw the offensive advert that has sent many roiling and boiling with anger.
Incidentally, Jesus Christ, in one of his teachings had warned His followers against the yeast of the religious leaders (some known as Pharisees) of His days. As His disciples bickered over what He meant, He told them it was to caution against the hypocrisy of the religious leaders, who showed and preached piety outwardly, but were inwardly corrupt and wicked.
Famously, He predicted woes upon them, if they did not change their ways.
