Nigerians react as Bishop Oyedepo dismisses his church's senior officials for looting the treasury

People called me devil, some wanted me dead over my sermons – Bishop Oyedepo

Bishop David Oyedepo of Living Faith Church, narrated how some Nigerians once called him a devil and wished him dead for preaching prosperity.

Preaching to his members at the church’s headquarters in Ota, Ogun State on the theme “Blood of Sprinkling Service” on Sunday, Oyedepo said Nigerians were angry that he was preaching prosperity instead of suffering but said some of his attackers are now preachers of prosperity.

The preacher noted that a God-ordained leader sees things ahead of others.

Oyedepo said: “I was a devil teaching prosperity, people were grieved, they wished I died. Now, everybody including the major attackers are now writing on prosperity. True leaders see ahead of others, every God-ordained leader is a pacesetter.”

The clergy man recalled how suffering was once seen as a blessing in Nigeria.
