Adeboye family reveals what they won’t do about Dare’s death
The family of the Pastor Enoch Adeboye has said it will never begrudge God over the death of Pastor Dare, the third son of the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church Of God (RCCG).
The Adeboye family stated that Dare, 42, who died on Tuesday in Eket, Akwa Ibom State, where he was a youth pastor. left a great legacy behind.
The deceased’s father on Friday night during the monthly Holy Ghost service of the church at the Redemption Camp, Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, Ogun State, broke his silence on the tragedy.
During his ministration, which was also broadcast to members through Dove TV, he said God was sovereign and could not be queried for his actions.
He said, “Whatever we have is given to us by God, be it wealth, wife, husband, children e.t.c and if it got taken away by God, all we can do is give God glory for actually giving us the privilege to enjoy those wealth or kids temporarily and it is not for us to complain, blame and question God.
“What we see as sorrows might be joy in the sight of God, I mean His ways and thoughts are not the same with ours, we shouldn’t forget that both good and bad happen at God’s command.
“Finally, in all things, let’s learn to say thank you Father, and it is well. God bless all of you in Jesus’ name.”
The deceased’s younger brother, Leke, told The PUNCH on Saturday that his brother’s legacy was his passion for the youth and how he served God.
He said, “We did everything together, until we got married. Same schools, same everything. We got married on the same day, just a few years apart.
“He taught me to spread my wings, to soar high, to blaze the trail. He demonstrated what it truly meant to serve with brilliance and class. He was full of wisdom, solid on logic, and gifted with an incredible sense of humour.
“He lived entirely for the Lord and His work, dedicating his life to educating and inspiring young people on how to capitalise on and maximise their faith in any environment they find themselves. And ensuring they make heaven at the end.”
Asked if the family would question God for the loss, Leke, who is also the personal assistant to the General Overseer, quoted Romans 8:38, saying, “Not even death would separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus.”
“Never (we will not begrudge God). To live is for Christ, to die is gain,” he added.
