When Jesus joined the Mafia: Oyedepo says criticise Covenant fees and face the wrath of God

111
pastor-david-oyedepo

It is now getting farcical that there are still people who believe that this man is purely Spirit-led. Today, it was reported that Dr David Oyedepo, the Bishop of the Living Faith Church worldwide, threatened those criticising the school fees charged by Covenant University with the wrath of God and halitosis.

The man claims that the fees were approved by God Himself (and how can anyone question a God who concerns Himself with the fiscal administrations of a tertiary institution?).

“The school fees has God’s approval and is in accordance with the quality of facilities provided by the university in meeting the educational needs of the nation,” Oyedepo says.

In this Buhari economy?! But the good pastor has an app for that. He says the current economic meltdown was predicted but committed Christians will be exempted from the burn. Ah, Christianity according to the holy books of trade by barter – if you’re a committed Christian (this is usually provable by sending your child to Covenant University and/or exorbitant tithes and offerings), your coffers will never run empty. Praise God!

But that’s not all God can do. For His final trick, God has decided that he can’t be arsed with the American elections, the crisis in Aleppo, the Israel-Palestinian beef, or even the fate of all those little children on Facebook that He can save since they now finally have one million likes. No, God has decided He rather likes the corporate lifestyle and has joined His main man Oyedepo on the board of directors of the Living Faith Church so that together, they navigate the murky but metaphysical realm of school expansion and the attendant monitoring of fees .

Yahweh, no longer concerned with Faith, Love, Hope now occupies Himself with university profit and loss accounts. Why use your powers for Great Floods or the Greater Good when You can just smite Oyedepo critics with mouth odour should they dare to challenge the end-of-year accounts? A smite so great that only God’s co-director Oyedepo can resolve? Turns out God is #TeamNineToFive.

The only thing more absurd than Mr Oyedepo’s utterances are the goons that will still come out and defend this arrogant and blatant mockery of God.

Don’t come for me. I have no interest in this racket. To he who brain is given, sense is expected.

  1. Walahi, when I grow up, all I want to do is, own a church, build schools, pay no tax and still insult people while my “sheep” continue to call me Daddy-in-The-Lord !!.. Olukayode Adegoke, business don come !!

  2. Jesus joined the Mafia?😂😂😂😂😂😂 Rachel Adepeju Onamusi na end time we dey o, everyone should just stand on their own with God. All this deruba awon human somebody with scary talk cannot werk rara.. Godly children don’t come from church schools but out of God’s mercy, it’s not by our righteousness but by the grace and mercy of God, having good Godly kids has nothing to do with religion… hmmmm

  3. Who is the chairman board of trustee, chancellor, pro chancellor, University visitor, signatories to the University bank accounts etc. Oh ! Nigeria masses where do we belong Politically, physically and spiritually ?.

  4. Copied as received:

    Africa is currently experiencing another form of slavery through Pentecostalism. We are now mentally lazy and our ability to reason scientifically has been incapacitated. The write up below gives a vivid reality of the way we think.

    COPIED: The Nigerian Pastor won’t talk about Usain Bolt or Serena Williams.

    The Nigerian pastor wont talk about Steve Jobs or the young people in
    Silicon Valley reshaping our world.
    They won’t talk about young American scientists spending endless hours in
    search of a cure to a disease that’s predominantly in the Tropical African
    Region.
    The Nigerian pastor won’t talk about Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie or Ben Okri.

    In every corner of the world, there exist young men and women who have
    defied all odds and become successful through hardwork, creativity and
    dedication…
    The Nigerian pastor wont talk about them……neither will he ask his
    members to emulate the spirit of these individuals.

    He would rather talk about sister Agatha who got a job she WAS NOT THE MOST
    QUALIFIED FOR because she prayed and fasted in line with their church programme.
    Or
    Brother John who became a millionaire because he used all his salary as a
    seed in the church.
    Or
    Papa Miracle who he laid his hands on and 3 of his children got admission
    in the university
    Or
    Mama Esther paid her tithe and her business started growing everywhere
    across the nation……no business plan, just boom, everywhere.

    This has led to a new breed of mentally lazy young people who now see God
    as a rewarder of mediocrity.

    To the Nigerian Pastor,
    the only way to prosper is by paying your tithe and sowing seeds in the
    church. So they will never talk about those who have through hardwork and
    dedication placed themselves on the world map.

    No……the Nigerian god only blesses the first 30 people that rush to the
    altar to drop N100,000 as seed.
    The Nigerian god abhors hard work and creative thinking, He only gives to
    those who sow seeds and offerings……and those who shout “‎Daddy, I receive it”

    You are all jokers.
    Can someone tell these jokers that irrespective of your creed, faith or
    religion, blessings and favours follow you once you start using your
    talent and become useful to your society.
    God doesn’t owe you N1!

    My own point: Go and read the parable of the talents everyone! Makes sense? Hmmmmnnnn!

  5. Xavier Arinze Arts for Christ sake u people should open your eyes how can God ask u to extort money from people. If the missionaries in those days were like this I don’t think our parents will be educated today. This people should not be lying with the name of God. Every thing is prophecie from God and u people that worship pastors and church once you hear people mention the name of your pastor or church u flayed up. Let’s face the fact for once please. That’s why he said his judgement will start from the church.

  6. we shouldnt forget dat it was with the tithe,vows offering e.t.c of the poor church members dat the skul was built now tell me how can they send their children to the skul when they cannt afford the fees

    • And who told you living Faith Church is for poor people?? It’s a church where the poor becomes rich, so my dear correct your statement,its not the poor that contributed, it is the blessed people at various levels that contributed, and by the way, they didn’t contribute, rather: they gave willingly in accordance to there faith in God on the subject of giving. And you know give and it shall be giving unto you. God’s reward for giving its not limited to money alone.The winners family are known for divine health which is far better than going to convenant university.

    • Everybody is blessed ,. But the reality of things is there are poor people,. If u don’t agree then u are brainwashed. How can u say the sch fees is approved by God,.. Smh,. Yes give, and it Shall be given unto u, it’s true, but if u read ur Bible very well and saw how the early Christians lived their lives,. A communal live, where no one enriches himself, u would know we have far drifted from the real Christianity.. And note this is not just for winners Chapel, am talking of how Christianity is being practiced today… Don’t be dogmatic, think, read ur Bible, and see if the prophecies are not coming to play, try not to be blindfolded because it’s ‘my church’ and all that,.. We will not be judged by church but by how we lived our lives!

    • I can not be against offerings and tithe,.. It is normal for Christians to do so,. We are Christians.. Meaning Christ like.. It’s a way of life, living like Christ did,. A humble life, a selfless life and a righteous one,. The only people I can say lived a near perfect Christ like life where the early Christians,. Take a look at Paul, Peter, this guys performed awesome miracles even their shadows healed people, they could have enriched themselves easily, I mean very easily,.. Now these were people that were in direct contact with Christ himself,. That could have claimed to be all and all and acquired wealth but no,. They didn’t, they didn’t even live in the best of houses, they collect and share among themselves,. They lived an average life so others can be fed,. Why are our preachers not doing same,. I am a Christian, a big one,. But I ask,. Because I read my bible,. So brother,.. Let us open our eyes to the reality of things. yeah and I say this even to my own church an every churches in the world, we should practice the kind of Christianity practiced by the early Christians and Christianity would move forward forever and keep growing strong

    • now christianity is all about favouritism hmmmm Gijo u are in support of his decision because he is your bishop if he had been my bishop and not yours would u still support his action, lets all try to say the truth inrespective of title

  7. @Blackjesus.. Why should we keep our tongues away from anointed men? Are they better than God’s authentic messengers? Are they next to great Christians like John the Baptist, Jesus himself nor his disciples? Pls Bone that, when people who pretend to be man of God goes off limit by questioning reasons and logic, thinkers must reflect and ask questions. He has erred erroneously and such fallacy is hellish in God site. Don’t worry, his doom is near.

    • Well @Ogwuche, I gat to know whom d authentic messenger his by their words. This was d same man who said between 2014/15 in preparation for general elections that he would open d gate of hell to Christians who doesn’t vote for Jonathan. Now I ask you, would an authentic messenger of God like Moses, Noah, Abraham, Jesus etc have said this to their followers or lost sheep’s? It was later we heard he got cash from Jonathan. When men of God begins to say from d ways of God brother, doom is nearer

    • @Jelili,Please there are so many Muslim owned University and its not free either.There is one in Osun state there.do you know how much they pay?its not compulsory for your kids to attend Covenant University, Go to OAU,its still one of the best and Cheapest

    • @Oluwakemi My argument isn’t based on the variation in school fees, be it bogus or less. It simply on Pastor Oyedepo’s fallacious statement about fees being ordained or designed by God. Sister, no where in d road of inspiration nor revelation God fix prices of commodities nor services. Even in d days when manna was falling from heaven, God never fixed a price. So one business mogul shouldn’t come here and tell us that God approved a school fee. That’s my argument.

  8. am nt surprise if former CAN chairperson orisejiafor can open his mouth to say the poor does not bUild the church ds comment is just too small. no wonder the judgement itself will start from the church. may God have mercy on him for such comment .the poor will contribute their little quarter n later only the rich will benefit. anytin biulding level for my church I don stop d tin since cos I see no need xpecially d catholic church. most times we jst take this our God for granted .

    • It’s Really tiring brother am a Catholic too,.. I kick against churches extorting money from people, or even when they contribute only the rich benefits.. But my advise would be,.. Do your part to please ur heavenly father, since it’s up to him to judge,. The judgement would start from His house as He has said.

  9. Friends! Please note, Living Faith Church is not for poor people. It’s a church where the poor becomes rich, so please stop making statement,such as it is the poor that has contributed for the building of convenant university and yet they cannot attend it .It is not the poor people but rather, the blessed people at various levels who gave willingly in accordance to there faith in God on the subject of giving. And you know give and it shall be giving unto you. God’s reward for giving its not limited to money alone.there are so many things that is very vital than money. The winners family is known for divine health which is far better than going to convenant university.If you can’t afford CU please go for the one you can and stop making irrelevant comments that won’t help your lives but rather bring wrath to you in your state of ignorance.And also, seal up your leaps as to castigate any church or pastor. It’s a SIN.

  10. I can not be against offerings and tithe,.. It is normal for Christians to do so,. We are Christians.. Meaning Christ like.. It’s a way of life, living like Christ did,. A humble life, a selfless life and a righteous one,. The only people I can say lived a near perfect Christ like life where the early Christians,.

Let us open our eyes to the reality of things. yeah and I say this even to my own church an every churches in the world, we should practice the kind of Christianity practiced by the early Christians and Christianity would move forward forever and keep growing strong

  11. If you contributed your tithe to the building of the university, then is still cool… The holy bible made it clear on how to use your one-tenth of your gains in the house of GOD…. Read Deut. 14:22-26… Don’t blame them for using your tithe, you gave it to them voluntarily, hence they helped you over what you couldn’t do yourself. The bible had instructed you spend and enjoy it with your family in the house of GOD, though thou shall not forsake the levite..

  12. U are part of d rich few Nigerian making life difficult for others,, God never sleep, never support what ministers of God are doing, Pls emulate d white missionaries. nobody will see d wrath of except u Oyedepo is doing d right thing. UR FEES IS TOO HIGH. POOR NIGERIANS CANNOT AFFORD IT.

  14. You better STOP talking about whats not your concern. Especially when it has to do with pastors. You gotta learn to mind your business and who’s begging you to attend The Living Faith Church? No one i guess. There have to be credibility in your statement, “it might be you’re not able to afford such fees so its hurting you”? In reference to the above statement (i was there live) on Sat 5 Nov 2016. He stated (bishop David)… Some one spoke outrageously about the fees paid at covenant university, he was struck with a diffect in the mouth, he ran to me and begged that he needed prayer. I prayed for him. Pls, what is our charge in CU Compared to other Uni with thesame facilities that we have? Never speak against any pastor or any Church in your life, God will be angry with you and this might attract judgement.” this is exertly what took place on Sat at about 8:45AM. So You better be careful “mr blogger”

  15. Yes, but as a man of God who cares, maybe you can suggest to God Almighty something like N100,000, emphasize in your discussions more, on the poor who wants good education and the very bad economy sir etc, I trust God he never leaves his own. It is well with all of us.

  16. Nawa o….. I don’t understand this vitrol against Oyedepo. If you can’t afford the school fees go to unilag na…. Na by force to go covenant, in case you have not noticed its a private university not a seminary, compare it’s prices with other private universities then we can talk. By the way have you noticed how much all the secondary rtrnd to their original missionary owners who supposedly brought us education FOC charge as school fees. As per his comments, I can only refer you to Moses’s siblings who got leprosy for speaking against Moses….so you can get a curse if you talk rubbish like this post has done…. And by d way I am not a goon…..just a child of God who knows better
