Bishop Oyedepo: Nigerians react to ‘I’m Dangerously Wealthy’ message by man of God

The General Overseer of Living Faith Church Worldwide, Bishop David Oyedepo has made a bold declaration about his wealth while also saying he does not rely on the patronage of the government in a bid to enrich himself.

The cleric made this statement during the opening session of Shiloh 2018, the annual gathering of his church at Otta, Ogun state.

“I don’t share any booty from any government. I have a clear conscience; I am dangerously wealthy. I am rich, whatever I want, comes. That’s what they call wealth,” Oyedepo said.

He also warned ‘political gladiators’ to be wary of a time whereby the greatest authority would be wielded the church.

Oyedepo continued: “Authority shall be domiciled in the church in the last days and if anybody is angry, it does not matter. Let all political gladiators hear this if the church says no, you are going nowhere.

“The time comes when the church says, you die and you die; run mad and you will run mad. It is not something that we organise; it is by the hand of God. You can be upset, it won’t change anything.”

However, some Nigerians have reacted to the development on social media and here is a cross-section:

Meanwhile, a former aide of ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri disagreed with the declaration from Adebayo via his Twitter handle.

Omokri said, “It saddens me when pastors boast about how rich they are. Riches are an illusion. Once you boast about money, you no longer own the money. The money owns you. “Let the one who boasts boast about this: that they have the understanding to know me, that I am the LORD”-Jeremiah 9:24”

Controversial Nigerian media personality Daddy Freeze also called out Oyedepo on his comments.

Freeze posted a statement via his Instagram account lampooning the cleric on his choice of words.

He said, “I can’t wait to watch a video of this screeching sorry I meant preaching..??

“How can a man who claims he is from God brag like this? If people stopped giving him their money his bragging will end, but the problem is they can never stop giving him out of the little they have.

“How can you claim to be so dangerously rich teaching about a kind God in a country so dangerously poor? NIGERIA, ACCORDING TO THE WORLD POVERTY REPORT, IS THE POVERTY CAPITAL OF THE WORLD?”

I can’t wait to watch a video of this screeching sorry I meant preaching..🤣🤣 – How can a man who claims he is from God brag like this? If people stopped giving him their money his bragging will end, but the problem is they can never stop giving him out of the little they have. – Also why does he resurrect Shiloh each year? Does he now know better than God? Or is he serving another god? – ◄ Jeremiah 7 ► New International Version [12]“ ‘Go now to the place in Shiloh where I first made a dwelling for my Name, and see what I did to it because of the wickedness of my people Israel. [13] While you were doing all these things, declares the Lord, I spoke to you again and again, but you did not listen; I called you, but you did not answer. [14] Therefore, what I did to Shiloh I will now do to the house that bears my Name, the temple you trust in, the place I gave to you and your ancestors. [15] I will thrust you from my presence, just as I did all your fellow Israelites, the people of Ephraim.’ – How can you claim to be so dangerously rich teaching about a kind God in a country so dangerously poor? – NIGERIA, ACCORDING TO THE WORLD POVERTY REPORT, IS THE POVERTY CAPITAL OF THE WORLD🙄
