The Presiding Bishop of the Living Faith Church Worldwide aka Winners’ Chapel, David Oyedepo, has said anyone insulting him is wasting his or her time.
He also disclosed that his church planted 520 new parishes on Sunday, August 16, 2020.
Oyedepo has been under intense criticism over his comments on Sunday, warning the Federal Government to expunge the part of the newly-signed amended Companies and Allied Matters Act, 2020, that gives the supervising minister the power to remove the board of trustees of churches without recourse to the court.
President Muhammadu Buhari had on August 7 signed into law, the Companies and Allied Matters Bill, 2020. The bill which has been passed by the National Assembly replaced the 1990 CAMA.
Amongst those who criticised the cleric is the President’s aide on Social Media, Lauretta Onochie, who tweeted on Monday, “I hope this is not true. If it is, Oyedepo will have to manufacture his own country and live by his own laws. As long as he lives and operates within the entity called Nigeria, he will live by Nigerian rules and laws. He will do as he’s told by the law. Enough of lawlessness.”
But Oyedepo in a sermon on Tuesday morning tagged, ‘Breaking Limits’ aired via the church’s social media platforms, said, “If I ever preached a message where there is no laughter, don’t listen to it. I have been laughing like this 76 till forever since I found Matthew 6:33. I have been laughing at the devil and smiling as I serve. You insult me, I enjoy it. You insult me and I stop going to work because you insult, I will be a big fool. I am going to work.
“They said, see his legs. Yes, I thank God for my legs. See his nose, yes, He made it and He did it beautifully. See how short he is, that’s the size He made me for so I can save more clothes.
