Ukraine-based Nigerian Clergy, Sunday Adelaja, has again criticised leader of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye.
In a video published to YouTube, Adelaja replays a video of Adeboye lecturing on the subject ‘Sacrifice Overturns Wrath’ in which he quotes Psalm 41:1-3, using the Scriptural reference to encourage attendees to financially partner with his ministry.
“If you are a giver, when you are sick, God will visit you”, Adeboye is seen stating in the video, while reading out from the bible.
But Adelaja pointed out that Psalm 41 actually states, “Blessed is he who considers the poor; the Lord will deliver him in time of trouble”.
He explained that the context refers to giving to the less privileged, not to a church or pastor. The founder of Embassy of God described Adeboye’s interpretation as a “broad daylight lie”.
“He is twisting the Bible just for people to give to him,” he fumed. Meanwhile, controversial media personality, Daddy Freeze, has jumped on Adelaja’s jab at Adeboye, posting the clip on Instagram.
“Sunday Adelaja punches a hole in Pastor Adeboye’s doctrine,” Freeze wrote.
“The givers the Bible is talking about are those that give to the POOR not to PASTORS!”
Freeze has been at the forefront of a very public spat with Nigerian megachurch pastors over the contentious issue of tithing.
