The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has advised Christians in Nigeria to defend themselves against bandit attacks.
The preacher said this while delivering his sermon at the ongoing July Holy Ghost Service at the church headquarters in Mowe, Ogun State
Adeboye, who explained that the Bible is in support of self-defence, cursed the terrorists unleashing havoc on the country and their sponsors.
He expressed shock over a purported order that Christians should shut down churches for three months.
Adeboye said, “From now on it is going to be fire for fire. Some jokers said Churches should not open for three months. Who is your commander? God or Boko Haram; let the devil try any nonsense, from now on, it is going to be fire for fire.
“I don’t want to say much because I know some people may want to twist it but I have searched the Bible from cover to cover and there is nowhere in the bible where God said a child of God cannot defend himself, If you find the place let me know. He said that if they slap you on the right cheek; turn left, He said that one. If they now slap the left, what did he say? When God is silent, do you know the meaning of that? It simply means over to you.”
