The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) Pastor Enoch Adeboye has clarified that he never asked Christians to buy guns for self-protection during last Friday’s HolyGhost Service, at the Redemption Camp, Ogun State.
Adeboye made the clarification on Sunday, during the monthly thanksgiving service.
TheFact Daily reports that the clarification came following media reports that the general overseer said it was now “fire-for-fire’’ for any attack on Christians.
On June 5, 2022, terrorists attacked Saint Francis Catholic Church, Owo in Ondo state killing more than 40 worshippers and injuring many others.
However, the cleric urged Christians not to listen to the voices that discourages them from going to church due to the enemies attacks.
Adeboye said, “Nothing happens in the world without God. Nobody dies without God’s permission…Until your time comes nobody can kill you. Don’t listen to those that say ‘hey! don’t go to church the enemy is planning something’. Any enemy that comes to your church, God will meet them at the gate.
“There are one or two thing(s) I said at the HolyGhost service that some people might want to misrepresent.
“I never asked Christians to go and buy guns. You didn’t hear that from me. You don’t need guns. Samson never bought an AK-47, he fought with the jawbone of an ass.
“So don’t go and buy guns. In any case they won’t give you permission. But you don’t need permission to buy the jawbone of a cow and I have always wondered how do you demonstrate to children in Sunday School how Samson won the victory,” he said.
