Oyedepo blasts government for locking churches because of COVID-19, while hospitals, markets are open | Nigerian News. Latest Nigeria News. Your online Nigerian Newspaper. f


Presiding Bishop, Living Faith Church Worldwide, Bishop David Oyedepo has chided the Federal and State Governments for opening markets and continue to lock up churches in the country.

Oyedepo, in his sermon, said the churches should be opened, wondering why government took such a foolish decision.

He said there was something wrong for government to allow markets to open for six hours and not allow churches to open for two hours.

“There should be opening of the churches around the world. Sir, there is something wrong for people to be allowed to be in the market for six hours and can’t be in Church for two hours.

“It is an upside down ways of looking at things, while quoting Ecclesiastic 4:13 which said “Better is a poor and wise child than an old foolish king who will no more be admonished.”

“Which one is more orderly, the market or the church? I can smell a rat, the Lord spoke to me about it yesterday. Behind all this, how do we stop the church from exploding?

“The greatest headache of the power of darkness is the expansion and progress of the church. No civilization had ever endured without a foundation in Christ.

“I can smell a rat, the forces of darkness are influencing people against the church, targeting the church. But the gate of hell shall not prevail against the church, they shall gather but they shall fall. The devil and all his agents will pay for this.

“Hospital where people die everyday is opened and the church is closed,” he stated.

  3. Church na market

  4. And these pastors will continue to quote "my people perish because of lack of knowledge" and the pastors totally lack knowledge here

  5. He is talking about tithes,offerings etc that he is no longer collecting. Anyone wasting his money and time in a Church established by someone and registered as whatever is a big mugu or mumu. You are just helping someone feed fat and live large at your expenses.

    God is not that unjust to demand all that for you to worship him. Obidence is better than sacrifice. Fear of God is the key to worshipping him.
    It is not about these people moving around like magicians and ripping people off to build and maintain their business empire for their children and generation.

    B"as wise as a serpent"

    1. The animal in you is becoming too much as a Christian were u supposed to be criticizing men of God? Zoo human being and talk to this useless government not pastor because it's God that will save us because what ncdc is doing with this is terrible

      You are indeed blind. You are one of thuse folks who still believe in these so called men that claimed to be called by God. Oyedepo claimed called spoke to him and you solely believed him smh!!! Why didn’t god direct him to go to the Covid centers to heal the infected.

      Soon your eyes will open to know that all this so called pastors are scam. They are merely motivational speakers.

  6. What a stupid speech! Well, I don't really blame you, afteral you are protecting your business. You are simply not happy that others were allowed to open their businesses whereas you were not allowed to open yours. Anyone who believes that this guys is seeking and / interested in their salvation is sucker. It's all about what they can obtain from whoever believes in them and don't care about you welfare or health.

    1. Do you have Jesus!
      If not, you don't have life.
      Receive your redemption now! IJN.

    2. Your parents should have named you mumu or mugu. They say that if mugu fall, guy man go chop. And we know the mugu and guy man here.

  7. Oyedepo is nothing but thief
