E-NIGERIA! The ill-wind of controversies is blowing in the lives of Pastor Adeboye, the General Overseer, Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG; Matthew Ashimolowo, Senior Pastor of the Kingsway International Christian Centre, KICC, Pastor Alph Lukau of the Alleluia Ministries International, Johannesburg, South Africa ,and Pastor Paseka “Mboro” Motsoeneng, the leader of the Incredible Happenings Church.
Controversial on-air personality, Daddy Freeze, has attacked the General Overseer, Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, Pastor Enoch Adeboye over his comment that he had breakfast and drank tea with God.
Adeboye had said during the Holy Ghost Service on Friday night that “You don’t have to believe me, but, God has joined me in having breakfast before. He drank tea with me.
“I call Him ‘Daddy’ because we share a very special relationship…
Reacting to the comment, Freeze mocked Adeboye, saying he should have taken selfie with God like some pastors claimed to have done.
“You should have taken a selfie with him like some of your South African colleagues did,” he told Adeboye.
In the light of this, Freeze said he is giving N20,000 each to five people who would produce a one minute video by acting as “a GO drinking tea with his European god.
“20,000 Naira for the first five funny videos. You must use the #daddyfreeze hashtag,” he said on his Instagram.
If God can take tea, is he now living in the flesh? God is a spirit, and spirit form of life is higher than man’s physical life. Do spirit persons sleep or go to the ‘gents’?
Well, Elijah mocked Baal worshippers to wake up their god, that maybe it went to ease itself or is sleeping.
According to a 75-year-old Christian e-Nigeria spoke to, his God neither eats nor sleeps.
My God does not do what we mortal men do. He does not eat. He does not drink tea and he does not sleep. And He is a “happy God.”
“With his supreme intelligence he gave human six senses to enjoy life on earth. I don’t expect God with his higher form of life to be at the same level with us.
“All these pastors should verify the person who claims to be God. Michael Jackson once said that he danced according to God’s dance steps. He said that God was always dancing with him.
“Could our Almighty God dance with Michael Jackson?”
Matthew Ashimolowo, Senior Pastor of the Kingsway International Christian Centre, KICC, and Pastor Alph Lukau of the Alleluia Ministries International, Johannesburg, South Africa are also under fire.
Ashimolowo was criticized for going to South Africa and commending the controversial pastor Alph Lukau, who orchestrated the fake resurrection of a Zimbabwean man from the dead. And afterwards owned up that it was fake.
Ashimolowo had praised the fake pastor Lukau as a true ‘man of God.’
He said: “I am here because God told me to come. He told me that the man in the house (Lukau) is truly a man in His heart and I want you to know that you are in the right house. Tell two or three people, you are in the right house.
“You are in the right house, celebrate him, put your hands together, lets appreciate God for him and his wife, give God all the praise.
Is Lukau’s church still the right place, and is the pastor still a man of God?
Another pastor also mocked Alph Lukau. The leader of the Incredible Happenings Church, Pastor Paseka “Mboro” Motsoeneng, confronted Lukau for “bringing Christianity into disrepute” and charged him to raise former South African President, Nelson Mandela from the dead.
Mboro accused Lukau of being a fake prophet over his unholy’ resurrection ‘antics’ after he initially claimed to have raised a man from Zimbabwe.
Ironically, Mboro, himself claimed to have gone to heaven and came back claiming that he had taken selfies in heaven.
Mboro said he was willing to share his photos with people, but they had to “pledge” R5, 000 to his church first.
However, before people could “purchase” the photos, Mboro claimed that the Samsung Galaxy S5, which he used to photograph the heavens had disappeared.
Is this a season of fake claims by men of God?
