In an irate, prayer-like tweet posted late yesterday night, former aviation minister, Femi Fani-Kayode slammed the superintendent of the Deeper Life Bible Church Pastor W.F. Kumuyi for asking Christians in Nigeria not to engage in verbal or written attacks against President Buhari.
Kumuyi made this call while preaching yesterday at Deeper Life headquarters in Gbagada. Reading from the book of 1st Peter 2: 11-25 to back up his sermon titled
“The Believers’ Preservation Until the Day of Visitation,”
Kumuyi warned against violence and disobeying constituted authorities. Real Christians must live like Christ in the world and the government’s authority comes from God,
“Don’t attack the president of the country whether in words or in the newspapers or through internet.”
“Honour kings; don’t disrespect or dishonor the governors. Don’t disrespect leaders of the community and leaders in the church.
“If we are to honour the governors in the states, how much more the pastors,”
Those were the exact words of Kumuyi that Femi Fani Kayode found appalling rather than appealing. Kumuyi became an evil shepherd in Femi Fani Kayode’s prayer point. His tweet goes:
“Don’t attack Buhari”
God deliver us from shepherds that slaughter the sheep, that defend the cruel, that support injustice, that love the wicked, that serve the tyrant, that despite the weak, that enslave the poor and that worship genocidal maniacs and sociopathic butchers.
In another tweet that was later deleted, Femi Fani-Kayode added that the General Overseer of Deeper Life was speaking the “mind of Satan and not God”
