Pastor Enoch Adeboye, the general overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, has responded to Daddy Freeze’s claim that the women of Owo, Ondo State, turned to the god of thunder, Ogun, to cast curses on the terrorists who murdered worshipers there because “Bros J,” as Nigerians call Jesus, had not responded to their prayers.
Daddy Freeze had posted in June 2022 that “When dem call bros J and he nor answer dem nko? We abandoned African paganism to adopt European pagan ideologies. Until we start telling ourselves the truth and take our security issues more seriously this won’t end. Christ’s message is love and that’s the first thing so glaringly missing in Nigeria.”
Now reacting to his post on Friday night, July 1, 2022, at the RCCG Holy Ghost Service for July, Pastor Adeboye said thus:
I UNDERSTAND THAT ONE FUNNY FELLOW SAID THA
“WELL, THE ONE WHO SAID THAT THERE’S A YORUBA PROVERB, IT SAID, THE MOUTH THAT THE SNAIL USES TO BLASPHEMY GOD, THAT MOUTH WOULD KISS THE GROUND. FROM NOW ON, ANYBODY WHO DARES BLASPHEME JESUS CHRIST, THEY WILL TASTE THE FIRE OF THE ALMIGHTY GOD.”
“I DON’T WANT TO SAY MUCH, BECAUSE I KNOW WHATEVER I SAY, SOME PEOPLE MAY WANT TO TWIST IT. BUT I’VE SEARCHED THE BIBLE FROM COVER TO COVER AND THERE IS NOWHERE IN THE BIBLE WHERE GOD SAID A CHILD OF GOD CANNOT DEFEND HIMSELF.
“IF YOU FIND THE PLACE, LET ME KNOW. HE SAID, IF THEY SLAP YOU ON THE RIGHT CHEEK, TURN THE LEFT. IF THEY NOW SLAP THE LEFT, WHAT DID HE SAY? WHEN GOD IS SILENT, DO YOU KNOW THE MEANING OF THAT, IT SIMPLY MEANS, OVER TO YOU,” HE SAID.
