Following criticisms and threats from a couple of pastors for his criticism, and abuse of Bishop David Oyedepo, Daddy Freeze has apologize.
The OAP in a viral video, among other things described Oyedepo as a ”baldheaded old fowl.”
Daddy Freeze, while apologising to the founder of Living Faith Church, Bishop David Oyedepo, said he insulted the cleric two years ago, adding that the video only went viral recently.
He said, “My attention has been drawn to a video I released circa two years, seven months ago while addressing some pertinent issues that arose back then. I apologise for the delivery of my message and for any insult to Bishop David Oyedepo in that video as I didn’t in any way intend to dishonour, disrespect or disregard the person of the bishop.
“The perceived intention to the contrary is regretted. My methods of addressing doctrinal issues have long since devolved to a more scriptural and less confrontational approach. I was, and still, very passionate in my quest to address what I believe are unresolved doctrinal issues, however, from a more amiable perspective.”
On his ministry’s Instagram page on Thursday, September 3, the man of God said that total submission from the wife to the husband is the only condition for a fruitful marriage.
‘The only way to a fruitful marriage is total submission on the part of the wife. Until it is in place, every other thing she tries to do will be out of place.
“A woman who refuses to submit to her husband is disobeying God. As a woman, you might even be a minister of the gospel, and your husband is not, the Word of God still says to submit yourself to him. A submissive woman is precious in the sight of her husband – Ephesians 5:22.”
In reaction, Freeze said submission in marriage goes both ways and not only reserved for women.
Freeze’s criticism attracted a lot of reactions from most Nigerian pastors like Pastor Paul Enenche of Dunamis International Gospel Centre and David Ibiyeomie of Salvation. But that of Ibiyeomie is what drew massive attention to the whole saga.
On his apology, Daddy Freeze says expressed his “firm” belief that for the Christian faith to thrive, believers must collectively be open to adopting theological frames of reference.
He said this could be achieved in love only.
The broadcaster has been known to propagate controversial Christian doctrines which include the non-payment of tithes.
He has been feuding with several popular and influential Christian clerics and described those who demand tithe as thieves.
