Why I refused to speak out on killings in Nigeria – Pastor Adeboye breaks silence
Pastor Enoch Adeboye, the general overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God has disclosed that he refused to speak despite all the killings going on in the country because he is a member of Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) and the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN).
Adeboye, popularly called Daddy GO by church members and some other Christians said the leaders of the two associations have have spoken on the issues on behalf of their members, including himself.
The revered man of God disclosed this during the 2018 February Holy Ghost Service held at the Redemption Camp.
He also led members of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) to pray against people shedding blood in Nigeria, their protectors as well as their sponsors at the church’s programme, Premium Times reports.
Adeboye who will also hold special three-hour prayer session for Nigeria at the Redemption Camp on February 13, said he finally decided to talk about the killings to members of the church in his capacity as their general overseer.
In addressing the issues, Adeboye used mathematics to reduce them to simultaneous equations to derive an answer.
The equations, according to pastor Adeboye are:
1. There are certain problems beyond man
2. There is no problem beyond God
3. Man can hide from his fellow man
4. No man can hide from God
5. Security agents can be compromised
6. God cannot be compromised. His holiness is not negotiable and cannot be compromised
7 Man can sponsor evil
8. God cannot sponsor evil
The answer to the equations solved simultaneously, he said, is just one answer; which is that “a prayer warrior is more effective than an activist”.
Premium Times further reported that Adeboye described the correlation of answer to the tendency of enemies and some children of God to underrate the power of prayer. He then led the congregation in a series of prayers for the killers, people who connive with them and their sponsors to be exposed by God and dealt with.
