The only similarity they would never share is longetivity in Jesus Name. Lord Jesus let Adeboye and Oyedepo remain with us for a very long time.

When I study Oyedepo's life I begin to understand his audacity and radicalism. Much of his life he associated with radicals of the Christian faith from Hagin, T.L Osborne, Idahosa, Adeboye and Copeland. You can't move with such individuals and not become a radical yourself.

No 16 is hilarious for me o. Same person went after father and son.

I have never heard of the bolded story before. Anyway that is how it should be. Give and shut up about it-that is the Christian way.

Maybe its not demons afterall. You are just one ridiculous individual. But really don't curse out ppl u don't know before.
There is nothing revolutionary about being insultive or cursing pastors out. If you are a Christian stop it! Foolish people have been doing this from time immemorial from the biblical days of Moses down till this moment. They didn't let the man have rest, they murmur, gossiped and nearly overthrew him for marrying an Outsider who God said no one should. Even Jesus won't tell you that all his apostles are perfect. So take a chill pill because nobody go answer him papa name on judgement day-Whether na Pope Francis, or Queen Elizabeth or Oyedepo you will all answer your name. What you feel about those pastors is irrelevant to God himself and God won't change his mind about them because you said so. Face your own life.

Touchey:

Are you God? Where you there when he sent him??

Your question should be. Do I know God, moreover God delights in the prosperity of His servants. If some preach prosperity in their message, if you are not interested in the topic, very simple, change to deeper life or redeem.

You need to understand the church is like a long chain, every church is a piece of that long chain.

1 Corinthians 12:12-15 says things about every church being a part, the fact a church does not lay emphasis on rapture or holiness in every sermon does not mean they are not preaching it.

Moreso, there is a church for every life problem, that's why some don't understand, always claiming their church is the best, when their church is a piece of the entire body(puzzle)

people pay more attention to religion than the faith and that is why many dont have God though occupied with activities in the church.

If only they understand faith, well, they see faith as raising the dead or for sickness, but the Bible said, without faith,

it is

impossible. you just can't. because God Himself calleth things that be not as though they were

We will keep preaching faith, grace and redemption using mark 11:23, you will have salvation, prosperity, healing, breakthrough, freedom on every side and on top of that, call things- create things using faith
