Pastor Marches On His Member: What Is Happening In Our Churches Now? / The Bible Describes 'Jesus' As Black, So Why Do Our Churches Depict A White Man? / The 'Daddy-Mummy Syndrome' In Nigerian Churches (2) (3) (4)

I used to attend RCCG as well and I dont really think is is optional - he refers to the congregation as his children. He even refers to Oyedepo as his child as well

EarsWide:I dont get it! You mean in the RCCG you attend you are compelled to call the GO "daddy"? I find that very hard to believe! With regards to him referring to the congregation as daddy, what exactly is wrong with that? are they not his spiritual children? Did paul not refer to the church in Galatia as children? Did he not also reaffirm to the church in corinth that he is their spiritual father? If bishop oyedepo wants to adopt pastor adeboye as his Spiritual father is that not his own perogative? Afterall he is allowed to call him whatever he likes as long as he is not worshipping him

I dont call him daddy - I had my father here on earth and I have my father in heaven. I have no personal relationship with him so calling him daddy seems a bit ridiculous.
In anycase I should have said 'I used to attend' RCCG - I will correct that.

EarsWide:I was referring to the bit where you said it was made mandatory that you call him daddy! That i find very ridiculous and in all honesty unbelievable
|Re: Why The 'Daddy' Craze In Our Churches? by EarsWide(m): 1:51pm On May 26, 2011|
I did not say it was mandatory.
If someone calls you my child, he has obviously assumed he is your father.

The point is most of the congregation refer to these men as Papa or Mama, and they are well aware of it. If you're not against it, you are for it. If you don't speak against it, you silently agree to it. There's no point stating the obvious

your reply shows depth, i can probably say that for a post in a million. what church or ministry do you attend or get your influence from, apart from the bible of course.
do u by chance belong to the word circles. regards

This topic goes on. Any thing done out of a commandment is disgusting. There should be liberty in the church.

Is it only in Nigeria that we have Pastors?
Why are we so vain and title-chasing that something as silly as "Daddy/Mummy" should cause an eyebrow to be raised?
Are MOG not supposed to be "simple, humble and attention-avoiding" humans?
Ofcourse, if everyone calls the Pastor and his second-in-command, Daddy/Mummy, God help you, IF YOU DONT do the same, They will label you, ostracize you and make you feel bad, all in an effort to terrorize you into compliance!
Osama is a joke, compared to these ones!
I bet it'll soon be "Grand-dada" very soon
Sounds more eemmmmm,, ,.,. powerful!

[b][size=16pt]For those of you in our Churches, who still call their Pastor/Bishops and their wives daddy, mummy, grand daddy and grand mummy, Jesus spoke these word to you yet, you're ignorant and adamant that your Church Pastors are gods!
Now, acquaint yourselves with a little intelligence from the scripture below:
Go and read Matthew Chpt. 23 v. 1 - end but more importantly, focus on verse 1 - 12 in relation to the argument above because that nails your Pastor's craving for adulation and you who is worship the Pastor with your frequent daddy and mummy callings to the wrath of God.
My advise is, after reading this Scripture please, continue to call daddy and mummy, ok! Don't ever stop!
As you can see, we don't have to let you know the wrong you're committing against God by calling your Pastor daddy, do we? Jesus has said it all, when he said,'And do not call anyone on earth father', for you have one Father, and he is in heaven'. (NIV) And, I ask what is daddy?? It means, father, Papa, Nna, Baba etc.
Glad you've seen the truth! Everything you need about God and his will for us, is in the Bible - just starting reading the Bible for your own good, today and stop arguing blindly. [/size][/b]

Maybe this could explain why some nigerian pastors fry their hair and wear ear rings

Ah, Nigerians. They know the bible better than the Constitution and the Criminal Code. Little wonder they can't demand that their rights be respected. I mean, how does one demand something he doesn't even know belongs to him? Carry go, Daddy and Mommy!
