An 87-year-old woman has left many people in shock after she testified in church that a 30-man gang of robbers who invaded her compound on a mission to steal took to their heels after sighting a photo of the General Overseers off Winners Chapel, Bishop David Oyedepo.
Although many people have doubted the truthfulness of the story, the message has been shared on the church’s Twitter page. However, Nigerians have reacted to the story.
“Hypocrisy is when the Protestants criticises the Catholics for having photo of Virgin Mary but have the picture of their General overseers as protection.
Believe it or not Protestants is the reason why non Christians don’t respect Christianity” someone noted.
Another added: “Lol.
87 year old young lady bawo. Grin
Chai, I just hope this people will not make me an Atheist at this rate.
30 robbers can’t come and rob you ma and you will see all the 30 robbers.”
Someone else added: “30 Robbers for just a Woman?
She must be CBN Younger sister.”
Yet another person asked: “How did 87 year count them to be 30? Were they entering her room and taking numbers? Which kind of robbery will take 30 men to execute what item of value could be in the possession of 87 year old woman ??
The god of Oyedepo seems to encourage idolatory by projecting the image of his offspring the Bishop as powerful and worthy of veneration. I have had cause to believe because of the behaviour, antecedents and teachings of the Bishop that his god is one of many gods operating in Nigeria.
Bible says (paraphrased), make no image of any form of persons whether occupying the terrestrial or the Celestial plane an object of worship or veneration. That includes the picture people parade around as Jesus.
Now, Christians under false prophets and teachers have upgraded to have images of their men of gods at homes and on streets, as portrait tags they carry about.”
