Adeboye retirement

Adeboye’ s prayer that Christians of other denominations will bow before RCCG members sparks controversy

by Church Times

The prayer of Pastor Enoch Adeboye for members of the Redeemed Christian Church of God that Christians from other denominations will bow before them has generated a lot of controversy on social media.

It is not clear the exact time Pastor Adeboye made the prayers.

But a video clip being shared online shows him making the prayer at the 2021 youth convention of the church.

In the clip, he referenced how the sons of the prophet bowed before Elisha after he was endowed with the double portion of Elijah’s power.

Adeboye then prayed that as the prophet’s sons bowed to Elisha, Christians from other denominations would bow before them. The entire congregation roared with an amen response.

However, many people on different online platforms reacted to the prayer making sundry comments.

Some described the prayer as witchcraft adding also that what Adeboye is implying is that people like Kumuyi, Oyedepo, and other church leaders will now bow before RCCG members.

Several people believe Pastor Adeboye should be asked to quit the pulpit because his age may no longer be supporting his pulpit engagements.

A few respondents however have different perspectives as they feel Pastor Adeboye is being misunderstood.

A commentator, Adedeji Agunbiade on the wall of Paster Sunday Adelaja where the clip is shared wrote, “Which kind prayer be this oo. This one don pass witchcraft sef. Why should “Christians” from all denominations bow before fellow Christians? Na him too talk say your peers will beg you for food. And mumu congregation sef shout amen. This is witchcraft and sorcery combined.”

Some other commentators say the prayers can’t stand because we all are supposed to bow before God, not any human being.

Rhoda Adewuyi wrote, “It is pure old age, Baba needs to retire or go on compulsory retirement by the church. Is there no anointed Pastor again in RCCG? No Minister is indispensable, old prophets need to allow young prophets with new fire to function before they too start to see “heaven”

One Titilola Daramola Atewologun  ” observed, “With AI you can never tell with all this voice-over. I have been a member of RCCG for over 30 years and I can say I have never heard this kind of prayer said.”

Atewologun’s observation may be correct, it is now left for the church to deny the authenticity of the video

Nigerian Christians be careful of what you say or write about the church leaders in Nigeria you are not the one who appointed them. The church government is not democracy, Be careful for nothing. Do not allow your tongue to drag you to Hell
