TB Joshua: Adeboye, Oyedepo, Kumuyi caused hatred, envy among church leaders – Primate Ayodele
The leader of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, Primate Elijah Ayodele said hatred and envy among church leaders in Nigeria started from Pastor Enoch Adeboye of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, Bishop David Oyedepo of Living Faith and Pastor Williams Kumuyi of Deeper Life Bible Church.
Primate Ayodele stated this in his church yesterday, Saturday July 10 while reacting to the absence of some poplar General Overseers during the burial of the late founder of the Synagogue Church of All Nations, SCOAN, Prophet Temitope Balogun Joshua.
Recall that the only notable clergyman who attended TB Joshua‘s funeral was the chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, Lagos state chapter, Rt. Rev. S.T.V Adegbite.
WITHIN NIGERIA had reported that the popular televangelist and philanthropist who passed on June 5 was buried on Friday, July 9 in his church premises in Lagos.
Most of the major church General Overseers in Nigeria were conspicuously absent at the burial which attracted dignitaries from around the world.
Ayodele said: “When you talk about Christendom, people ask who am I, when did I start, which Christian society do I belong to, is it PFN or not? Me I don’t belong anywhere, I do not have any father in the lord, I was not trained by anybody. I’m just doing things as the Lord directs me so I stand alone.
“So if you want to get closer to some people they would say we don’t know you, you don’t have a foundation. I have not seen in the bible where Jesus Christ or other prophets went for training; so I don’t understand why people keep asking where others belong to in Christendom.
“The senior pastors don’t want the junior ones to grow, there is envy, hatred in Christianity among church leaders. And this started from Adeboye, Oyedepo, Kumuyi and the likes are the ones that caused problem in Christendom.
“All the CAN leaders are just there for their pocket, they are doing nothing. Who is CAN President, Oritsejiafor lost it during his time, same as Cardinal Okojie, Ayokunle is directionless; he has nothing to offer Christianity.
“Go and ask, there are problems that needed there attention but Ayokunle would not be there, you will only see him when it is time to raise money. We need people filled with the holy spirit to lead not those who have monetised Christianity.”
