CHURCH VS MARKET ( The Boko Haram Within) – “Oyedepo” – – When I saw the video of the Preacher who lamented that markets were allowed to open for 6 hours but Churches could not be allowed to open for 2 hours, I was not surprised.
Stoking fire of hatred, religious disharmony and making divisive political statements on the pulpit has been his stock-in-trade. He is even more political than most of our politicians. His preference for a political party is not hidden. He once reconciled two old thieves.
Comments on his statement showed that he has succeeded in making his followers, gullible ones though, to believe COVID-19 lockdown is war against the church. He called the President ‘foolish old king’ using Bible verses to drive his point home.
What a boko haramic way of interpreting the Bible!
The Preacher feeds his followers with lies and half- truths forgetting that Satan is the father of all liars and that any preacher that thrives on lies is an Anti-Christ because Christ is the TRUTH.
The preacher has every reason to be angry. He has 2 Universities, the universities have businesses under them such as Bakeries, water company etc. All these are closed.
The Preacher has Jets. His Jets are grounded.
His Church (The cash cow ) is also closed. Market is very dull for him. He has to be angry.
He has contemporaries on Forbes rich list whose businesses are opened by the Govt , he viewed this as injustice.
Comparing Church with Market is an ungodly comparison. It shows how he sees his church. Only churches that are run like markets will complain at this time. If your Christianity is affected by closure of church buildings, then you are not a Christian.
This Preacher has churches in the US, UK, Canada and all other countries. Those churches were closed and are still closed as I am writing this. He dares not go over there and spew out one conspiracy theory or call their Presidents ” foolish old king”. He dares not smell a rat there because he will be put where he rightly belongs.
Let him go to Wike’s River state to smell his rat.
Beside Market, another angle to his anger is “Worship” angle.
The preacher has missed people idolizing him. His followers see him as someone who knows all.
He told them that Biblical Job faced travails because he did not pay tithe. They cheered him.
He told them that the man in Aso rock is Jubril from Sudan. They applauded him.
He told them his picture jumped out of a handbill and chased away kidnappers. They went on frenzy.
His followers look up to him as someone who is superior to Jesus and he is loving it.
Coronavirus is dealing a deadly blow on his influence over his followers. The number of the gullibles is decreasing. He is not happy.
Let me tell you, in this COVID-19 fight, there is no conspiracy against any religion. Saudi Arabia can not conspire against Islam by closing Mecca and Medina.
Pope can not conspire against the catholics by closing the Vatican.
It is only Pastors who are boko haram members that will fan ember of discord and hatred at this time. If your Pastor makes you hate anyone through his utterances and preachings, know that your pastor is an agent of lucifer.
Our common enemy now is coronavirus. God deliberately did not show any of the Pastors this pandemic so that none of them will take the glory. Look unto Jesus. Christ is our General Overseer, not some lie- vending, hate mongering and crisis-fueling marketers masquerading as Pastors.
