Pastor Enoch Adeboye, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), has urged his critics not to be offended by his messages, adding that they are for “his children”.
The revered cleric last week came under heavy fire from feminists on social media after he praised his wife, Foluke Adeboye’s submissiveness on her 72nd birthday.
Speaking on Sunday during his sermon broadcast live, the RCCG leader said if he had his way his sermon would be restricted to members of his church.
“As a matter of fact, if there is a way of preaching this sermon just to my own children alone, that is what I would have done.” Adeboye said.
“Not because I’m selfish but occasionally there are things you say to your children that would annoy outsiders. And you keep on saying, but I am not talking to you, I am talking to my children. But now, the lockdown has made the door open to everybody.”
“Some people see the glory but don’t know the story. Some people see me and say all kinds of things. It’s none of my business, I don’t need to answer you; I just need to keep on riding high with my king. I’m talking to my children, so others should not be angry with me. Before you take off, consider your landing.”
