Ex aide to former president Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri has reacted to the alleged decision of the Bishop David Oyedepo-led Winners chapel to fire some of its pastors on grounds that they failed to generate much expected income from their branches.
Reno while making his reaction via his Social media handles, stated that Christ called Christians to engage actively in evangelism and that any pastor who fails in that core obligation should be fired. According to him, the sacked pastor of the church who went to the press after he was dismissed was only playing on the intelligence of people. He wrote
”I read the letter from Winners Chapel and 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. Any pastor that fails at that core duty should be sacked. This is what Christ told us in Matthew 25:14-29.
The sacked pastor who went to the press after releasing a live video is playing on your emotions. He is not considering that he is undermining the faith of believers.
In John 15:16, Christ said “I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit.” Now, ask yourself what the consequence of not bearing fruit is. Christ answered that question in John 15:2 “Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away”.
This is why the only thing Christ ever cursed in His lifetime on Earth is the fig tree that bore no fruit-Mark 11:14.
Winners Chapel is in order.”
