The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has said that his sermons and messages are meant for his church members.
He made this known on Sunday during a sermon titled ‘From Lockdown to Lifting Up’, and monitored by POLITICS NIGERIA.
Adeboye was reacting to some criticism he received last week when he congratulated his wife, Pastor Folu Adeboye, on her birthday.
The popular cleric said he does not understand why some of his messages annoy non-members of his church. Adeboye said he wishes that his sermons can only be viewed by his church members.
Adeboye, however, appealed to his critics not to be offended with him over his comments, saying they are meant for his ‘children’.
He said, “As a matter of fact, if there is a way of preaching this sermon just to my own children alone, that is what I would have done. Not because I’m selfish but occasionally there are things you say to your children that would annoy outsiders. And you keep on saying, but I am not talking to you, I am talking to my children. But now, the lockdown has made the door open to everybody.
“Some people see the glory but don’t know the story. Some people see me and say all kinds of things. It’s none of my business, I don’t need to answer you; I just need to keep on riding high with my king. I’m talking to my children, so others should not be angry with me. Before you take off, consider your landing.”
