A pastor of living faith church, Peter Godwin recently decried his sack by Bishop David Oyedepo’s Living Faith Church for allegedly not generating enough income from his branch.
It is believed that more than forty other pastors were also sacked for this same reason, but the church has said that it was not because of insufficient revenue, rather it was because of low number of members. Read here.
This development sparked reactions on various social media platforms and Reno Omokri, former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan is also one of many who have reacted to the sack of the pastors.
Omokri said Living Faith was right to have sacked the pastors because they failed in evangelism.
Pointing out that the church “is in order,” the former presidential aide said Jesus Christ urged Christians to engage in evangelism.
In a tweet, Omokri wrote: “I read the letter from Winners Chapel. it did not mention anything about money. Rather, it used the word “church growth”.
“Christ called us to engage in evangelism-Matthew 28:18-20. A pastor who fails at that should be sacked-Matthew 25:29. Winners Chapel is in order.”
