I was a Deeper Life member and worker and almost a Pastor for about 20 years.

This is a blatant lie from the pit of hell! You were never a worker neither did you almost become a Pastor before you took off on your suicidal mission. The church almost made a mistake in making you a worker but with God's providence it did not happen. You knew that you were going to be exposed if you had taken up the offer. cool

frosbel2:


Initially when you join it appears to be one great club of humble believers, but afterwards you notice the following traits of their organisation ;

• They are beholden to one man, Pastor Kumuiyi

If you had been a believer as you claimed to have been you would at least know the spelling of the name of your Pastor.

frosbel2:


• Anything Pastor Kumuiyi says is truth and if you do not like it you must leave or start your own church

What has he said that is not backed up with Scripture?

frosbel2:


• They are so spiritually arrogant, and portray their church as the next best thing to holiness while other churches are either further away from holiness or fake altogether

Why should we believe you now that we know that you are a liar just like your father, the devil?

frosbel2:


• They separate families, husbands and wives, children and parents, siblings, co-workers etc .

Even Jesus said that His coming will set the loved ones against each other, that's only the signs of the last days as you are already fulfilling.

frosbel2:


• If you are in a second marriage and become born again (so called), you must go back to your first wife and reconcile to her, assuming she is unmarried because your second wife is not recognized by God. Imagine the confusion this will cause especially with children involved.

And it took you how many years to discover this? undecided

frosbel2:


• They lack true compassion and love for everyone else other than their own members

How did they become members if true compassion was not extended to them in the first place? undecided

frosbel2:


• They use hell fire to threaten their members into paying tithes and to abide by church rules and regulations.

You lied again.

frosbel2:


• If you are not careful, the church will take over your individuality and you will become another zombie minion without a mind of your own

That will only happen to those who join the church with ulterior motives.

frosbel2:


• The church also has to tendency to preach against wine or alcohol intake, something that was never commanded in the bible, rather the bible says we should do everything in moderation

Just say that you are a wine lover just as atheists love their sinful lifestyle and do not want to part with it and as a result will assert that God does not exist.

frosbel2:


• It is difficult to be truly happy in Deeper Life because you are always fighting one sin or the other or chasing one demon or the other

It is only genuine salvation that can give you the joy of the Lord. The fact that you had a false conversion should not be projected to the whole church.

frosbel2:


• Their focus is strongly selfish, it is all about your own salvation and escaping hell to make heaven.

What stopped you from getting saved?

frosbel2:


• They will often tell off young women for certain styles of dressing, the problem is many of these same women have the heart of Jezebel, very similar to a modest radical Muslim woman who despite dressing modestly with the Hijab will easily blow up innocent civilians in the name of her god.

Is that what you experienced from your loved one?

frosbel2:


• They preach the fables and myths of a fictitious rapture (started by a charlatan called Scholfield ) , Trinity and Hell fire

And you believed that for 20 years? You must have taught that to others, no?

frosbel2:


Young ones, do not be enticed to join. God has called you to express your individuality and make choices in favour of righteousness and peace. God does not want any man to rule over you or force his own belief on you. You are answerable only to God and not Man.

Enjoy this life and all that goes with you, don’t live a life of misery in the name or religion.

It is actually for the young ones who you seek to mislead as I can see for some who are already following in your footsteps that I am responding to your lies. They have to know that you are a bold faced liar and deceiver. They should at least know who they are following and not blindly jump into the pit with this deceiver.

Re: Is The Deeper Life Bible Church A Cult ? by GoodMuyis(m): 8:33pm On Dec 15, 2017


In a world filled with prosperity churches and end time pastors, Deeper Life Bible Church stands out.
Here is how.

1. The church and its members are unique: These days, a lot of churches have blended into each other because everyone is trying to be like everyone else. In the midst of all of these, the Deeper Life Bible Church stands out in every way.

A perfect example is their overseer, William Folorunso Kumuyi, who is absolutely different from other preachers. Whilst other church leaders are known for showing off their exotic rides, jets, the Deeper life overseer still has a simple, understated about him.

2. The members have managed to maintain their style: Over the years, there have been a lot of churches that started out one way and are now doing things differently. In a bid to attract more worshippers and blend with the modern times, these churches have dropped the qualities that set them apart from others.

This church has continued to maintain their style. In this era of flamboyant churches (no judgement), Deeper Life continues to remain the same in spite of the criticisms and mockery.

3. The Overseer is not afraid to admit his mistakes: In 2015, Kumuyi created a huge stir when he declared that he would remove the unholy doctrines church practice/principles he created before he dies. According to him, some of his doctrines principles had caused more harm than good, hence the need to remove them, causing providing a purer church.

This shocked everyone because it is unheard of for a Nigerian pastor to admit ti making a mistake. This trait is certainly something worth admiring, let's hope others can learn from it.

4. The church has grown from zero to hundred: In 1973, Kumuyi started a Bible study group while he was a lecturer of mathematics at the University of Lagos. The study group had only fifteen members, who eventually grew in numbers and were able to convince him to start a church. Thus, the Deeper Life Bible Church was born on Sunday, 7 November 1982.

Now, the church has over one million members in more than sixty countries around the world. Reportedly, the church has an attendance of 120,000 every Sunday, more than 500 churches in Lagos, and over 5,000 in the rest of Nigeria. According to foreign policy, this church is the "world largest megachurch".

5. The church's main focus is the Word of God: Enter any church and you are likely to hear sermons on prosperity, blessings, followed by reasons you should pay your tithe. While I have never personally attended this church, everything points to the fact that this church cares about following the Bible to the letter.

Some reviews gathered from the Internet also support this theory. One person wrote, “Kumuyi teaches the Bible (quite masterly and convincingly) as if he was there when it was written!” Another said, “I would classify him as one of the greatest living preachers, giving a straight forward Bible-based message, his sermons thorough, and always personally challenging."

Good news! This is the confusion that comes with religion.

Christians claim to serve the same God and Jesus...yet there are many denominations with conflicting doctrines.

I'll advice you focus on the sermons and teachings of Jesus alone for a start...anything that does not conform should go to blazes...

He's clearly a liar. He's an enemy of the truth. No member of the church will say all the false things let along a pastor of the church.
I am a member of the church and none of the things listed is true. We are in the last days and spirit of antichrist is truly at work.

But, a pastor-friend of mine who is a member of Deeper Life, and is very gifted with prophecy and visions, once told me no one is allowed to share visions or prophecies, unless such visions and prophecies are validated and approved by Pastor W.F Kumuyi.

And you all these and come here to ask Us if its a cult?
With your afore mentioned years of membership and almost being a pastor,its obvious you never knew what you were doing!
Let me clear you here that there is and will never be a perfect church full of perfect being even where you are right now..

If you go to a church to find fault either from the member or pastor,I bet you,you'll certainly find them..

Please don't use your sample to draw conclusion on them ,I might not be a member but there are good people there and wud bet their life to be there.. If you are no longer there its OK and note everybody must not be there.. No htae tho.. Just and expression of my opinion and view.. Bless
