The Presiding Bishop of the Living Faith Church Worldwide, also known as the Winners Chapel, David Oyedepo, has told those insulting him that they are wasting their time.
Oyedepo has come under criticism, following his comments where he warned the Federal Government, to remove the part of the newly-signed Companies and Allied Matters Acts, 2020, that allows a supervising minister to remove the board of trustees of churches.
Among the critics was President Muhammadu Buhari’s aide on Social Media, Lauretta Onochie, who in a tweet on Monday said the cleric “will have to manufacture his own country and live by his own laws.”
But Oyedepo in a sermon on Tuesday morning tagged, ‘Breaking Limits’ posted on the church’s social media platforms, said, “Anybody insulting me is wasting his time. One, I didn’t hear. Two, even if I heard, it won’t pain me.
“Nobody has the power to determine how many people worship Jesus. No force on earth has the power. So, get all the facilities ready. The devil is tired.
“As of last night, we got the report of 520 of our new churches planted on August 16. No policy under heaven can stop it. If I were the devil, I will start mourning now. Shame on the devil.”
