Pastor Adeboye says his sermons are meant for his children not critics.
Pastor Enoch Adeboye, the General Overseer of the Redeemed of the Redeemed Christian Church of God says people, who take offence in his sermons should not be angry with him because he’s not talking to them.
The 78-yr-old cleric says if he has his way, he would restrict his preaching to members of his church only.
The cleric while delivering a sermon titled ‘From Lockdown to Lifting Up’ on Sunday, July 19, 2020, said the coronavirus-enforced lockdown has made his preaching open to everyone.
In the sermon broadcast live via the church’s TV, Adeboye appealed to his critics not to be angry with him, saying his sermons are meant for his children.
“As a matter of fact, if there is a way of preaching this sermon just to my own children alone, that is what I would have done. Not because I’m selfish but occasionally there are things you say to your children that would annoy outsiders. And you keep on saying, but I am not talking to you, I am talking to my children. But now, the lockdown has made the door open to everybody.
“Some people see the glory but don’t know the story. Some people see me and say all kinds of things. It’s none of my business, I don’t need to answer you; I just need to keep on riding high with my king. I’m talking to my children, so others should not be angry with me. Before you take off, consider your landing.”
