Bishop, Living Faith Church Worldwide, Bishop David Oyedepo has said pastors who still want churches to remain close are agents of the devil.
He said some pastors were angry that he said churches should be re-opened.
“But they are too diplomatic than spiritual, so they just keep losing ground to the devil! Some Pastors who were angry that I said Churches should be opened and we are praying that Churches must be opened.
“Now, ask them: “Do you want Churches to remain closed?” They will just be looking at you. Do you want Churches to remain closed? because I know you are a celebrated Pastor.
“Do you want Churches to remain closed? Then you are an agent of the devil. If your children scatter around and you can’t see them; they now say when do you want them to come back? You now say, “anytime”, then you are a witch.
No, it’s just normal,” he said.
Oyedepo added that some were upset with Church growth, saying that “if you ask them, “Do you want the Church to start going down?” because some of them are Pastors. Are you praying, “Oh God, let this Church go down in the name of Jesus. Let this Church go down!” Are you praying like that?
“Find out why the Church is not growing. You must have a problem and most of the time, the problem is ignorance, not knowing what to do and not ready to find out. There are many, many Churches that don’t have any platform of contact with their members. They don’t have any: no house fellowships, nothing. They don’t have any and nature abhors vacuum. These fellows will start looking for options and alternatives: some to the cults and some to native doctors’ places.
“We have tens of thousands of House fellowships: vibrant. Even under this lockdown, my own outreach office has created 82 new Home cells for our new converts. There are many, many big time Churches, big networks that don’t have any contact.
“We must have crossed maybe a Hundred Million (Naira) of welfare packages to our people since this lock down began.
“There are some that don’t have any touch with them, you wake up in the morning and you are snoring?
Not only to our people, to the environment, communities, maybe about 70 communities that we have been servicing with certain needs,” he added.
