TWO INDUBITABLE FACTORS OF MARITAL SUCCESS (5)

Was it not after the creation of the female Adam that God scored His creation, “Very good”? The Woman is the icing on the cake of the Adamic creation, epitomizing the Christological quiddity, and from whose matrix comes the Incarnation. “In the Woman,” Reverend Chris Okotie observed, as he explained, from his theological studies, “Is a Divine investment much more than the Man.” Our marital love and submission will be tested. The woman of Eden did not submit herself to the revealed words of, Genesis 2:17 “But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.” In order to save the marriage from another death, submission is the antidote. The Man would rather offend God; Adam forgot Deuteronomy 6:5 “And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.” To bring God into a perfect picture of the marriage, the man must take on the responsibility of the definition of God: love. Let the man ever treat his wife with the love of agapé, and let the LORD’s submission commandment from the wife be a continuous exercise. Marriage is a theological exclusivity for Christianity. Why would God tell Israel never to marry outside the community of Jewry? The investment is strictly for those who are close to Him. The first woman was created from an existing congruity of the male Adam. The woman must have her ears close to the man, agreeing with him in all things according to the Word of God. Knowing quite well that she comes from this Adam, the good LORD knows that the woman should not find it difficult to bring her submission to her husband. Marriage is definitely not about sex and child bearing. It is about strict commitment and submission to the will of the Institutor of marriage: JESUS. Selah!Read More

If you have to marry, understand that the man, first of Adamic creation, is the head of the family and he is in control of family matters according to divine fiat! Reverend Chris Okotie was his recondite self when teaching on the relationship between Adam the man and his wife. He said, “Adam, as a worker for God, has the entire earth as his platform; and Eve, his wife, has Adam, her husband, as her own platform.” How so abstruse, this exegetical establishment. Does the Scripture agree with the erudition of Reverend Chris Okotie? Genesis 2:15 “And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.” The man, Adam, is the first worker for God and the earth is his platform. Superintendence over an entity lies with the namer of the object. In naming the woman, he proved to be her superintendent husband. In her creation, she was taken out of the existing Adam, her husband. Her husband is her source. Do we all not know what happens when one is cut off from one’s source? One begins to malfunction. When the husband withholds his duteous love of commitment, or and when the wife decides to jettison God’s submissive mand, the home experiences malfunctioning. If the man’s platform is the earth, based on his scriptural formation from the dust, the wife’s platform of her duty to the Creator is the man, out of whom she came into existence. As far as the family organization is concerned, the husband – the one who has God’s oracle – seeks direction from God; and God expects the wife to look up to the husband for her own direction. You cannot change God’s protocol. Coming from the LORD God, His command is eternally in order and in vogue. So, you see, if you cannot abide by divine rules, just forget about marriage.Read More

The death, resurrection, ascension and session of Jesus has totally redeemed the born again Christian. He cannot go back to the ‘flesh', a metonym for ‘human efforts'. If you are truly born again, Christ is your righteousness, not through the efforts of your moral rectitude. We cannot, for one second, take our eyes of faith towards God off Jesus, and like Paul, should count those things we used to pride ourselves in, things we have lost, because of Jesus, as dung. Patience becomes the test of our unwavering faith in the One with Whom we have to do. Abraham died, not walking, as the landlord of Canaan promise. His unwavering faith in Him Who had promised, earned him a big position in the Hebrews chapter eleven Hall of Faith. His faith earned him an enviable “Friend of God!” Like Adam – before his fall – we can be perfect. Like Enoch, Noah, Abraham and Job who stood firm in the word of God, we can be perfect. This essence of perfection, however, is not of our own.Read More

It is true that those days of your ignorance, God brings not to His divine judgment, having cleansed you from all unrighteousness when you got born again; but is it not disturbing to the mind to find a Christian masquerading in the garb only fit for idolatrous beings? The injection of demonic polarization has torn the Church into fragments of diverse views of doctrines. We do not speak the same thing. We lack the perfection of being joined together. Some stress the fact that so long as they lead people to Christ for salvation, there is nothing to really worry about. What such people do not understand is that wrong teachings will weaken believers spiritually. Those weaknesses make one lose heavenly crowns. We run so contrary to one another when it comes to the exegetical didacticism of Scripture. Satan has successfully made sure of this. It must be understood that when Christ, our life, appears true children of God will “be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.” Amen!Read More

The love of a parent does not permit him to twitch his nose when cleaning up his child of the putridity that comes from emptying the bowels. Commitment. The wife toils tirelessly to make the husband and the children comfortable. Commitment. Selflessly, the politician does everything to take care of the needs of the hoi polloi, the middle and the upper classes of the population, knowing that that is what the LORD God expects of him: he is committed to his political job. The love of Christ enables us not to perceive God’s commandments as being grievous. Having been graced with the attributes of love, the Holy Spirit has fortified us to live seamlessly in our walk with Jehovah. What constitutes perfection before God is doing His divine will. The LORD God is an economist when it comes to the use of words: verbosity cannot be found dancing on the lips of the Divinity. Adamic perfection is attainable. If not, He would have misused the words of Genesis 17:1 “And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the LORD appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the Almighty God; walk before me, and be thou perfect.” Abraham’s integrity before the LORD his God was indubitable. His faith in God, unwavering, was absolute. Yes, one can be perfect before God. What does it take? Strict adherence to His instructions and commandments is all it takes. The perfect LORD God has made it less arduous for those whose hearts seek Him to attain unto perfection before His scrutiny. Malicious thoughts are constantly running through the minds of people through the agency of Satanism. In order to get this evil from man’s system Jesus taught in Matthew 5:24 “Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift.” You cannot serve two masters, spiritually speaking, God understands this facticity. To help you get freed from the contamination of malice: a sowing of Satanism, the Word of God tells you never to show yourself in the presence of the Most High Jehovah with Lucifer as your companion.Read More

For days, weeks, months or years of scriptural unaccountability the Adamic prototypical couple existed in a lifestyle of perfection. They were perfect until they allowed themselves into smearing their consciences with the ways of Satanism, leading to the break away from divine connectivity. If it was not possible to be perfect again the Bible will never make mention of Genesis 5:22 “And Enoch walked with God after he begat Methuselah three hundred years, and begat sons and daughters:” where the verbal 'walked’ is hâlak (haw-lak’): ‘to go, walk, come, depart, proceed, move, to die, live, manner of life (simply put, ‘lifestyle’)'. Walking with God means doing the things pleasing to the Creator. The only way to the physical practice of this walk is to place each of your own feet of tread exactly on the footprint of the LORD’s walk. The word of God says, “because the LORD loved you, and because he would keep the oath which he had sworn unto your fathers”; which proves that this love is just not mere palpitations of the affection that the heart is often experiencing. ‘Âhab with its Greek cognate agapé is a lifestyle of commitment.Read More

What happens to be the fashion nowadays is the throng emergence of the so-called “Apostles”. Definitely, they do not understand that an Apostle originally had pastors under his tutelage, based on The Acts of the Apostles understanding of the nascent Church nurturing into her adulthood. The Apostolic office was created to nurse the nascency of the Church in the days of Peter, John, James, Andrew, Paul and the rest. Check the Apostolic writings, they contain not a smidgeon of Scriptural error. They heard and learnt directly from the source of the Divinity: and taught flawlessly. By the time of their exits the Pastors had come of theological age to steer the vehicle of each local assembly properly. Pastors, from the day of the exit of John the Divine, author of the Revelation, had taken the pastoral mantle of every local assembly, independent of any so-called G.O.s, G.S.s, Bishops, Archbishops, Primates or the Pope. The Roman Catholic Pope actually began these scriptural anomalies of scriptural small-mindedness. As theologians of dissenting views broke away from Catholicism, they failed to do a clean cut off from the umbilical cord of the Pope’s Catholicism. To be fit for the vineyard business of the Holy Spirit, you must be a born again child of God. Jesus breathed the Spirit into them who were about to do His work on earth. You cannot work for God unless you speak in tongues. It will surprise you that many church leaders are not “men of honest report, full of the Holy Ghost and wisdom.” To be full of the Holy Ghost is to have the ability to speak in other tongues otherwise called the glossolalia. Of course, many have perfected the mimicry of the glossolalia, just to deceive. Not all that effuses, “mamamama hehe lakaykay sakayna” are truly born again. Selah!Read More

Growing up around the mid 70’s, my father’s brother, Uncle Popoola, served as the pastor of a small village church of a farmland community. He could read and conduct church services of the Baptist Church; and that qualified him to be the pastor of the church. After some years of his ecclesiastical official duties, something happened. A call to another religious duty was thrown into his laps. Those who told him of his mandatory obligation to this other call gave him no choice. He must accept it or face the ominous consequences of disregarding the religion of the god of his forefathers. Our family compound worships the masquerade idolatry (Egúngún – in Yoruba language). With tears rolling down the distraught mug of my Uncle, he believed he had no choice but to abandon the ecclesiastical office of the Church to give the rest of his life in the commitment to the office of the Alágbàáà (priest of Egúngún). Will a Reverend Chris Okotie jettison the ecclesiastical leadership of The Household of God Church and return to the priesthood of his late father’s family idolatry, and would Chris Okotie even think of going back to where he began his Christian life, The Roman Catholic Church? Okotie will never do that! Or is it to be expected that Pastor Tunde Bakare will one day decide to go back to Islam of his birth? Tunde Bakare, who has his life hidden in Jesus Christ, will never contemplate it. No true Christian will ever, for any reason, whatsoever, dump Christianity for another form of worship. If Jesus had truly called him to the Church business, my uncle would have told them, “Jesus, the Lord of glory, has appointed me as His vessel for His Kingdom; you better join me in this journey into eternal life of blissfulness with the Creator, the God of the Bible, if you want it to be well with you.” Of course, they would have thrown intimidating scare in his face, but the One which is, and which was, and which is to come would have protected my late Uncle Popoola from the malicious wiles of idolatrous enemies of the gospel, and by extension, Jesus.

One thing Christians incessantly do is the eulogy of their G.O.s’, G.S.s’, Primates' and Pastors’ ‘huge anointing’. They believe one anointing differs from others. Pastor Adeboye, for instance, is believed to carry an anointing much more powerful than so many men of God, hence, the monthly Holy Ghost Night is full of unexpected miraculous phenomenality. Inadvertently Adeboye is worshipped especially by some or many of his church members. 1John 2:27 “But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.” We (all regenerated souls of Christianity) receive this anointing to set us apart unto the thrice holy Jehovah. In the Old Testamentary order the oil, emblematic of the Holy Spirit, is poured on the head of God’s ministers, both political and ecclesiastical office holders. From the Day of Pentecost, it was the very Spirit, the Third Member of the Godhead, Who was poured in consecration of the new species of mankind, the born again Christians. Did the Holy Spirit tear Himself into tiny fragments, each piece of Him in every Christian? That cannot be, He is not in any verse of Scripture fragmented in distribution. The wholeness of His Divinity is seated in every Christian, making each living entity of Christianity a bona fide carrier of God! Amen. No Christian has a greater percentage of the anointing than another, seeing that what constitutes our anointing is the indwelling of the Holy Ghost. Read More

When they tell you that salvation of Christianity can suffer loss, they hardly know the source of this eisegesis. The Apostolic Fathers never taught it. A hint of this unbiblical spread came from Saint Augustine of Hippo (354–430) who believed “in a specific gift of perseverance given to some baptized Christians.[123] Augustine did not believe that someone can in this life know with infallible certitude that he is in fact among the elect, and that he will finally persevere. Thus, those who didn't receive the gift of perseverance can reject justification and lose baptismal regeneration. [124][125] (Apostasy in Christianity: Wikipedia).” An extensive didacticism of this belief was carried out by Jacobo Arminius, after whose death his friends came up with their famous soteriological Five Points of the Remonstrance, which included “perseverance”, meaning that “if a born again child of God does not continue to bear good spiritual fruits, he may lose the salvation.” One indubitable fact I have found out is that there is not one single verse on salvation that comes with a string of “if not, you lose it”. What many Christians do not realize is that what St. Augustine taught forms what serves as the bulwark of Catholicism, which includes baby baptism and the latria that Mariology receives in Roman Catholic Church. What influences Jacobo Arminius cannot be trusted. Loss of the soteriology is disturbingly eisegetic. These are some of the verses of eternality of salvation: Genesis 3:21; Romans 8:1; John 3:36, 6:40 & 14:23; Romans 5:8; Romans 6:2-11; Romans 10:9-13; Ephesians 2:5; Colossians 2:13; 1Peter 1:3-5 and 1John 5:11-13.

What they believe is that one must observe and maintain his righteousness in order not to miss heaven. The question is: are we righteous by our deeds? What does the word of God say? Only God, the sinless One, can author the soteriology. Sinless Christ Jesus must be of the Divinity to carry out the katallasso. There in Eden God created souls for Adam and his wife; souls that suffered corruption and died. But here in 2Corinthians 5:19-21, katallasso removed the sinfulness, and the mutuality garbed the born again with the eternal holiness of Christ. The old nature is dead. Man cannot maintain this divine exchange, only the Institutor of soteriology can and responsibly ensures the sustainability of the katallasso. The soteriological quiddity is incontestably of the Divinity. 1Corinthians 3:11 “For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.” The foundation of the Christian salvation is the eternality of Christ the Lord of glory, which is, and which was, and which is to come; the Almighty. To lose this Christian salvation is an indictment on the finished work of the Golgotha sanguineousness. The Christian who fails to do well will only suffer from not being accorded celestial elevation. 1Corinthians 3:15 “If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.” Should one lose one’s Christian salvation, then the Bible is fraught with contradictions: for it says, “but he himself shall be saved.” Now when it comes to righteousness, the LORD is our righteousness as the Bible attests to in Jeremiah 23:6. Who is this LORD? He is Jesus Christ our Saviour. As long as Jesus cannot lose His Divine righteousness, we remain righteous, spiritually, before the thrice holy God the Father. Amen! Read More

If we curse them who would be born again very soon, are we not working against the love of God, Who gave His Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life? Jesus would have died in vain for the people of our imprecatory vehemence. Matthew 5:44-46 “But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; Pastor S.O. teaches that ‘Rhema’ is superior in definition to the ‘Logos’: believing that ‘rhema has a special biblical or theological meaning than logos. I have tried to explain this to him a couple of times, but the thing is, he seems to think that the less used or known rhema is more important in scope than logos. If a whole pastor does not know the difference between rhema and Logos, does it not show incontrovertibly that he has not studied the Bible enough to know that while the rhema is a verse or one theological thought, the logos is the totality of God’s mind: for it says in Colossians 2:3 “In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge” of Jesus Christ. The Logos is actually a Personage. If the Lord Jesus is the Logos, how can rhema be of higher importance? What does one expect from the Scriptural understanding of that pastor’s congregants?Read More

The proclamation of Pope Pius IX in 1870 has continued to reverence the dogma of “Papal Infallibility”. Let us flash back to 2021: the Vatican decreed that the Catholic Church would not bless gay marriages because God “cannot bless sin”. But in a turn of events in 2023, December 18th, two years later, Pope Francis told the world that Catholicism would be open to having the Catholic Church bless same-sex unions. The pope, in defence of this biblical faux pas, said “pastoral charity” requires patience and understanding, adding that priests should not become judges “who only deny, reject and exclude”. Matthew 15:9 “But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.” Romans 1:26-28 remain the scriptural pointer to the diabolism of homosexuality. Pope Francis, you lack Scriptural affluence. Check the Divine protocolary: for as there is righteous judgment (Genesis 18:25; Acts 17:31; Numbers 25:7-11; Isaiah 11:4; Psalms 98:8), there also is unrighteous judgment (Leviticus 19:15; Exodus 23:3; Deuteronomy 1:17; Psalm 82:2; James 2:6-9). Righteous judgment allows God’s child to condemn moral irregularities. What is wrong with Pope Francis' Catholicism is not just a case of scriptural small-mindedness, it is an egregious stubborn bent on Satanism. Judgment, of Scriptural facticity, will begin in God’s house: the Church. Selah! It is so unfortunate that people do not seem to apprehend this deplorable mendacity of believing in Church Tradition: for it means that the Pope, General Overseer and the Primate of Christian denomination actually sit, physically, in the council of the Godhead, in the third heavenly assizes; and the Eternal Father, Son and the Spirit agree with them; then they travel all the way from heaven to the earth in actuation of these dogmas. Any Church indoctrination that fails in conformity with the express scriptural acceptability is ultra vires. The congregation of Christian worshippers is called the body of Christ; it is not the body of G.O. Adeboye, W.F. Kumuyi (G.S. of Deeper Life Ministries), Tunde Bakare, Chris Okotie or Pastor S.O. It is God’s business and property!Read More

In his reaction to Pastor S.O.'s question, “Will you not pray for your enemy’s death,” Brother A. was categorical, saying, “I am a serious member of Mountain of Fire Ministries Church.” MFM has indoctrinated its adherence to pray in all seriousness, “My enemy, die, die! Die!!” In the defence of this prayer, “Die, my enemy die. Die, the manager who is working against my promotion, die,” which one often hears from members of MFM Church, Brother A quoted Luke 19:27, believing that if Jesus would love to slay His enemies, then every Christian like him has every scriptural right to kill his enemies. To my chagrin, Pastor S.O. stretched his hand towards Brother A, congratulating him for a well said defence of prayer of imprecation. Pastor S.O., who has a whole church to his pastoral care stood firm in his argument, and would not agree with me when I told them that what Brother A quoted is a parable, to start with. Even when I opened the Bible to show them Luke 19:27, “But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay them before me;” they still did not agree that this verse does not give anybody the reason to rain imprecatory prayers on a perceived enemy. The infuriating problem with most Bible teachers is this proclivious eisegetical anomaly. The reason for this parable was the words of Jesus, “because he was nigh to Jerusalem, and because they thought that the kingdom of God should immediately appear” in the eleventh verse. This is where scriptural conceptualization comes exegetically in. If Jesus told the Roman governor, “My kingdom is not of this world” in His Incarnational days, then, the period of slaying cannot be of those days and even these days of grace. The day of slaying His enemies will certainly be at His Second Coming of scriptural vaticination.Read More

The arguments I hear from members of churches of many branches is that, that is the way to take the word of God to far and widest places. They, however, do not understand that the Church is God’s business, not man’s property. Look at so many pastors of today; they lack true and deep knowledge of the Bible. When I see them appoint themselves to the post of Apostles (very fashionable these days) I shake my head. They do not understand that if they should show up in the Churches of great men of God like Pastor E.O. Adeboye, Pastor W.F. Kumuyi, T.D. Jakes, Bishop David Oyedepo, Pastor Tunde Bakare, or Reverend Chris Okotie, they should be accorded the regard given to Paul, Peter and John (Apostles), who have shown up (in their Apostolic Fatherhood roles) in their local assemblies to unravel deep things of the Bible. The question is, do these, so called Apostles, know enough of the Bible to teach these great men of God what they do not know? Selah! Apostles nurtured the nascent Church to adulthood and placed each local assembly in the hands of the presiding pastors to continue the work of the Lord’s vineyard. It, therefore, does not surprise me when I hear some supposedly teachers of Bible taking preposterous stand like: “Well, this is Paul’s understanding and not necessarily of Jesus, I’ll rather embrace the words and teaching of Jesus.” This can only be a goading of Satanism, intended to create a ruse, making Pauline couch a faux pas.Read More

In the first three and a half years of seven allotted years that completes the 490 years (Daniel’s vatic seventy weeks), the Antichrist will bring peace to the world. He must do that. It is the pattern of the Christ during His ministry’s days on earth: he went about doing good things. The Antichrist will have no choice, according to Divine protocol, to do good works. But he cannot bring perfect peace like Jesus whose peaceful reign will last for one thousand years. Now, which of the two above does Pastor Adeboye represent, the Lord Jesus or the Antichrist? This is why I am totally in disagreement with the G.O. of the RCCG and I do not think he is in full grasp of this idea of bringing peace to the world. If Adeboye understands the full import of what he is toying with, then I can categorically tell him that he is dining with Lucifer! Does he, Pastor Adeboye, understand that going against the express Word of God is tantamount to calling the LORD God a liar? Does it not publish the mind of God in Psalm 138:2, where it explicitly says “…for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name?” His Word, has been with Him before anything was created, ergo, uncreated; this Word, which is also characterized by the triune almightiness of omniscience, omnipotence and omnipresence, the LORD God has enlarged in exceeding excellence above every high and loftiness of His divine names. Going in contrariness against the Word of God is an attack on the Divinity of the thrice holy God. Read More

Getting born again is strictly a spiritual, conscious effort on the part of an individual. After getting born again a Christian’s life is hidden in the righteousness of Divinity. Colossians 3:3-4 “For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. 4) Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.” What does this Pauline verse mean by “For ye are dead?” It means that the Christian is dead as far as sinfulness is concerned. What this implies is that we cannot be held accountable for punishment due to a sinner. This is what Christianity is all about, Pastor Adeboye. We are hidden in the Just One, Jesus Christ, the same Whose Divine life is now rightfully ours. We are doubly safe: for our hiding place is both in Christ and God the Father. The word ‘hid' is kruptō (kroop’-to): ‘to hide, conceal, to be hid; escape notice; metaphorically to conceal (that it may not become known).’ We cannot be known to death: we have been hidden from the annihilation of hell. Jeremiah 23:6 “In his days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely: and this is his name whereby he shall be called, THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.” How can we lose this life of the soteriology when it says that Jesus Christ is our righteousness? Are you not attempting to contaminate Divine righteousness when and if you try to use your carnality to maintain your salvation? Selah! Can you not see, Pastor Adeboye, that what this means is that Jesus, the Author of the salvation, being a responsible God, will take full responsibility of protecting us from being lost, having bought us with the most precious of all things, His Divine Zoe (Life)!Read More

Pastor S.O., who, in all vehement seriousness, sees me as being too small to find fault with Adeboye sees nothing wrong in the habit of members of the RCCG going to kneel before the G.O.’s seat after Church service to offer special prayers, placing their hands on the seat as a point of divine contact. “I have done that sometimes myself,” Pastor S.O. proudly admits, not knowing that the act proves his spiritual puerility. Does the Bible not record the teaching of, “And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you” (Matthew 17:20). You see, spiritual small-mindedness will lead you to your despicable minification. That which makes the likes of S.O. to clothe Adeboye in infallibility, will accord the G.O. supererogatory latria without they being aware of it! Are the ‘dead saints' of Catholicism not prayed to, with bended knees? It is nothing short of latria! Now let us look at the theological faux pas of G.O. Adeboye’s actions. Unbeknown to the G.O. his instruction to the praying congregants to focus on a mere staff is an introduction to idolatry. The staff has its history. It was given to him by his spiritual predecessor, Pastor Josiah Akindayomi, the founder of the church, which was originally a ‘White Garment’ church. White garment churches are known for so many unscriptural stuffs. They believe that only the true members in their midst are the white robbed worshippers among them. Angels are empyreal white-stainless-robbed before God: their white garmented justification. They use all kinds of materials in carrying out deliverance services, which include eggs, candles and palm fronds – quite fetish. Read More

Is the Pope not setting himself up as the LORD God? Centuries prior to Papal Infallibility, the Council of Trent, held in the year 1545, declared that Tradition is of equal authority with the Bible. By Tradition is meant human teachings. The Pharisees believed the same way, and Jesus condemned them, for by human tradition they nullified the commandments of God. This, Jesus told them in Mark 7:7-8 “Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. 8) For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things ye do.” Apostle Paul warned us in the writing of Colossians 2:8 “Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.” They are not even afraid not to fall short of Revelation 22:18, “For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:” the warning of our LORD God, through John. As various congregations tore themselves from the umbilical cord of the Catholic Church, they forgot to rid themselves entirely of certain beliefs, ergo, for centuries what had continued to be taught seemed like the truth owing to the fact that when you continue to repeat a falsehood into your system, it eventually becomes an unconscionably irrevocable fact.Read More

I asked a professed, tongues speaking, Christian, Brother A., what he thinks of the unbiblical act of the General Overseer of The RCCG, Pastor E.A. Adeboye’s claim that the LORD God told him to gather leaders of all global faiths and take power from politicians of the world for failing to provide good government and ultimately “bring peace to the world.” The young man said, “I cannot judge him.” The third man in this discourse, Pastor S.O., in visibly fit of effusive rage, “How can you condemn, him? It is Father Adeboye we are discussing here!” was Pastor S.O.’s vehement contribution, in his firm and unresolved belief that I am too small to investigate Adeboye’s utterances. Is G.O. Adeboye more scripturally knowledgeable than Simon Peter, who followed Jesus for three and a half years, who also is one of the Apostolic Fathers that nurtured the nascent Church into adulthood? What else does S.O. believe? “The LORD God of the Bible could have given Adeboye this information;” and in conclusion of his thought, “or were you there when God told Papa Adeboye not to do so?” Another worker in RCCG told me in the distant past, “A ò lè so’pé kòrí béè; nítorí i Bàbá Adeboye r’Ólórun jù wá lo.” The literal English translation of this Yoruba submission is: “We can’t say it is not true; Father Adeboye sees (i.e. knows, meets or understands) God more than we do.” Read More
