Cleric berates church leaders for fraternising corrupt politicians
The General Supervisor and Minister of ThankGod Awaited Liberation Ministry, Ikeja, Lagos, Prophet Francis Onwudiwe Otukwu, has frowned at church leaders for fraternising oppressive and corrupt political leaders, as well as men of fame, occupying prominent positions in their churches, saying they contravene the Biblical injunction that friendship with the world is enmity with God.
Speaking at the 10th anniversary and birthday commemoration of the founder of the church, with the theme, “Coming of the Kingdom of God is for revenge,” the General Supervisor said the scenario replicates that of the Jewish system, when high priests, Pharisees and elders conspired to betray and crucify the Lord of Zion, saying, ‘we have no king but Caesar,’ their Roman colonial master.
He said: “Today, there is so much suffering, social injustice, nepotism and impunity by the powers that be, while leading clerics are celebrating crowds, prosperity, gigantic auditoriums, and members’ positions and connections with the same self-serving leaders, whose deeds have led to unprecedented hardship in the land and death of innocent Nigerians. Such hypocrisy cannot go unpunished, especially as they claim to be men of God, and are treated as such. Do not forget that God emphatically stated that judgment will start from the pulpit.”
