As the 2019 elections approach, the Deeper Life Christian Ministry has sent a warning to its members to avoid dragging the Church into politics.
The Niger State Overseer of the Church, Pastor Toyin Araromi, gave this warning on Sunday.
Accordung to him, the Church remains a faith based organization.
Pastor Araromi stated this in response to a question on the role assigned Pastor William Kumuyi, the General Superintendent of the Church, during Nigeria’s 58th Independence Day anniversary in Abuja.
According to him, “Our General Superintendent was invited to minister at the Independent Day celebration and he honoured the invitation.
“He also had the honour of visiting Mr President (Muhammadu Buhari) in his ministerial capacity. All that he did is what a godly leader should do.
“Recently too, on Oct. 7, the Lagos State Government organized its own form of the 58th Independence celebration at the Deeper Life headquarters in Gbagada, Lagos, which was attended by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and some other dignitaries.
“According to the Bible, we should give honour to whom honour is due and we are giving honour to whom honour is due.
“We are not members of any political organization. Deeper Life is neutral. We encourage our members to pray for whosoever is on the throne instead of criticizing the government, because it is scriptural to do so.”
He recalled that the last visit of Pastor Kumuyi to Suleja was in July 2017 when several notable miracles took place.
“The Holiness Preacher who has been a blessing to our generation is not tired. It may interest you to know that Kumuyi’s coming is timely and divine, especially at a time when the government of the day is faced with the challenges of insecurity and moral decadence, among others.
“Pastor Kumuyi is storming Suleja live, with a message of divine solutions to individual, family and national problems. He is bringing the message of love, peace, unity and progress.
“In the face of the prevailing socio-economic, physical and spiritual challenges facing the populace, it is heartwarming that this great man of God is coming for both physical and spiritual liberations.
“So we urge the good people of Niger and Suleja in particular to come together and receive divine blessings irrespective of their religious beliefs,” he said.
