Reno Omokri, ex-aide to former President Goodluck Jonathan, says that if he is asked to name a man of God he respects, as a true man of God, he would name the founder of Living Faith Church, Bishop David Oyedepo.
Last week, social media was thrown into a frenzy following an exchange of insults and comments between OAP, Daddy Freeze, and Founder and General Overseer of Salvation Ministries, David Ibiyeomie.
Freeze had faulted the teachings of Oyedepo, with regards to his comment that Women should be submissive to their husbands.
Citing a passage from the Bible, Freeze said that Oyedepo’s advise can be likened to a modern day slavery, advising that both men and women should be submissive to each other.
Reacting to Daddy Freeze’s statement, Pastor Ibiyeomie threatened to kill Freeze, accusing him of insulting his father.
However, speaking on clerical credibility, Omokri shared: “If I am told to name a man of God I respect as a true man of God, Bishop David Oyedepo’s name must feature prominently. Fact check me: Anyone who disrespects Mr Oyedepo is not wise. Study what happened to those who did so in the past.
“It can’t be coincidence! That is 2 Thessalonians 1:6 in action. As long as you are human, if anyone talks for an hour, anybody can pick a few seconds of what you said, and isolate it from the context it was said, and then innocently or deliberately distort its meaning. They did it with Christ. It is not a new thing. Build your ministry by building yourself, not by tearing others down!”
