I still flee from sexual temptations – Pastor Adeboye

General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, (RCCG), Pastor E.A Adeboye, has disclosed that he still runs away from sexual temptations despite his anointing.

The revered cleric made this known while speaking to attendees at the Ministers and Workers Conference of RCCG Americas 1.

Highlighting the destruction of Samson in the bible, Adeboye urged people to be mindful of lust and to flee from sinful appearance.

According to him, people may ask if ladies are interested in an 82-year-old man, but the issue is that she is interested in putting an end to all the great works God has done through him.

The pastor said: “Somebody says, at your age, why are you still running? I run faster than before because the closer you get to the finishing point, the more careful you must be.

“Some of you can say, ‘Daddy, what are you saying, are you still running?’ I run fast. With all your anointing?’ Does anointing turn your body to stone? Samson was anointed. Single-handedly, he killed a thousand soldiers. A woman finished him. I hope the boys are listening.

“You can say, ‘Is anybody still interested in an 82-year-old man?’ She is not interested in you but interested in putting an end to all the great works God has done through you.

“You see that woman smiling at you everywhere you go, she is there smiling, and she is not your wife, run.”
