A former pastor with the Deeper Life Bible Church, Gideon Akande has attacked its founder, Pastor William Kumuyi, for reportedly inviting ‘Philistines’ to a church-sponsored event.
According to Pastor Akande, the invitees are “strangers with strange spirits.”
Pastor Akande made this known in an open letter on Saturday, where he urged the GO to “go home and rest” if he was tired of leading the church rather than destroying what he had spent years building.
He also reminded the GO of the church’s unction stressing that he should focus on winning souls, which was the Deeper Life Ministry’s initial mission.
Naija News understands that the former First Bank of Nigeria Chairman Ibukun Awosika, gospel singer Dunsin Oyekan, and co-founder of Andela, Iyinoluwa Aboyeji, were invited for a program, and according to Akande, the invitees are Philistines who should have no business with the church.
The letter’s body reads as follows:
LETTER TO PASTOR KUMUYI: IS THERE NO PROPHET IN ISRAEL?
“When I was in Deeper Life Bible Church then, as a youth instructor, for all the district, regional and state programs, we would invite the best educators, doctors, professionals and others, all successful members of Deeper Life with the same spiritual quality and values and those programs impartations are part of my business success today.
“But today, look at the flyer, are you saying there are no more successful people in Deeper Life Bible Church than those strangers invited?
“Are you saying there are no anointed brothers who can sing better than Dunsin from all the global crusades with different ministrations from Deeper Life choirs?
“Are there no prophets in Israel that DLBC and Pastor Kumuyi are busy engaging Philistines to their altars because they are obsessed with popularity, anyone popular now is invited?
“I hope you will not begin to invite Christian comedians in the coming years.
“I am no more in Deeper Life Bible Church, God called me into media evangelism but Deeper Life remains my home church.
“Sir, Pastor Kumuyi, If you are tired, go home and rest but don’t ruin what you have built for years because I am scared.
“This is how old RCCG that Rev Akindayomi built collapsed and new model of RCCG emerged. It started gradually by inviting strangers who come with strange spirits. I can’t imagine the various strange spirits those youth will be imparted with in this program.
“May God help His servant and His church.”
