1 Corinthians 14:33 For God is not a God of disorder but of peace--as in all the congregations of the Lord's people.
I see many churches in Nigeria in urgent need of general sanitation of the dirty and stinking surroundings of their church buildings with heaps of refuse decorating the streets of the church.
Dirty churches should clean up their nearby streets and clear the gutters full of refuse and human waste. The dirty and filthy environment of a church is a bad testimony of the church and church goers.
Lest we forget, our Lord and Messiah Jesus Christ was so clean whilst on earth over 2000 years ago that his Roman executioners cast lots to win His precious garment during His crucifixion.
Our Almighty God JEHOVAH loves orderliness and does not compromise His holiness. So, any form of disorderliness, dirtiness and filthiness is not of God.
Being dirty and filthy is a bad testimony for Christianity.

15 For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.
16 For I will not contend for ever, neither will I be always wroth: for the spirit should fail before me, and the souls which I have made.
17 For the iniquity of his covetousness was I wroth, and smote him: I hid me, and was wroth, and he went on frowardly in the way of his heart.
18 I have seen his ways, and will heal him: I will lead him also, and restore comforts unto him and to his mourners.
19 I create the fruit of the lips; Peace, peace to him that is far off, and to him that is near, saith the Lord; and I will heal him.
20 But the wicked are like the troubled sea, when it cannot rest, whose waters cast up mire and dirt.
21 There is no peace, saith my God, to the wicked.
Isaiah 57: 15-21.
King James Version (KJV

Anybody can claim to know God.
But You cannot know God until HE has revealed HIMSELF to you. And HE cannot reveal HIMSELF to you without HIS Holy Spirit. So, without His Holy Spirit you can never know God.
Anyone who knows HIM does not live a life of conceit and deceit.
God hates lies for He said Satan is the father of lies.
So, whosoever tells lies is not of God.
Because, our Lord Jesus Christ said:
"You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies."
- John 8:44.
The chief demon is known by several names: Lucifer, Satan, the Devil, Old Nick, Beelzebub, the Tempter, the Father of Lies, the Evil One, and the ancient Dragon. And those who belong to him behave like him. Deceivers, liars, pretenders, ingrates, troublemakers, evil doers and others like them who are legions among humans.
If you truly know God, you will not live a life of lies.
And without God your life is empty even if you are Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg or President Donald Trump.
