Day I cried over my hero, Muhammad Ali —Adeboye



The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, on Friday, described the late American professional boxer, Muhammad Ali, as his ‘hero’.

The cleric, who used to be a boxer, said he once cried over the health status of Ali, who died in 2016 at the age of 74.

Adeboye spoke at the virtual February 2021 Holy Ghost Service of the church with the theme, ‘God Bless You (2)’.

The 78-year-old cleric said, “It is one thing to be a champion, it is another thing to still be a champion. I will illustrate this by using Mohammad Ali of blessed memory.

“He was my hero, incidentally, we were born the same year and I was a boxer too; not of his class but I followed every fight that he fought. At least beginning from Sonny Liston, I can tell you every person that my hero fought.


[b]“But then, one day I saw him when they asked him to light the torch for the Olympics and I saw my hero, the man who used to float like the butterfly and sting like a bee, I watched him shaking like the reed blown by the wind. His hands were shaking and it took a special effort to hold to the torch and I cried that day.”

“The question I am asking is: ‘Is God an ex-champion?’ Glory be to God, the God who is going to bless you is not an ex-champion,” [/b]Adeboye added during the programme monitored by The PUNCH.

cry This thief will always find enticing tales to tell his sheep that will make them part away with their hard earned money so as to fund his flamboyant lifestyle.

Modified: grin grin See the amount of threats and foul words coming from so called Christians just because I told them the harsh truth they are ignorant to admit.

Sorry o! If your assertion is true why didn't the Bible stop at the 5 first books?

I mean why the need for old and new testament. It's evident your Lord changes from old to new testament though you may refuse to see the changes.

The LORD had an army and a sword in the old testament but not in the new testament.

I have Bible verses to back my claims.

Your own Lord holds sword from the beginning till now, even in Al,- jannah, the sword lives on.
You don't know anything about Christian faith. Your contributions are such to show ignorance rather than knowledge. Every antichristian is an antichrist.

We don't know if youths of nowadays ever sit down and plan to make their life meaningful. 
All they are looking for is to say trash against men and women of God.
What many of you don't know is that you keep shutting doors against your self and your future when you say bs against God's servants.

Just because you have a phone do not give you the right to come online to comment on things you don't understand and say different kinda trash.

Well, we will continue to remember you in our prayers. 
We just pray God have mercy on this generation.

That scene of Ali's hands shaking while he could not hold the torch moved the world...

It illustrated that everything that has a beginning, has an end.

True Christians are Repulsed By Violence or anything of that Nature. It is definitely not something to Be Glamorized or be entertaining as we see in media, Movies and Sports Like Boxing, Wrestling, UFC etc.
