The trending mudslinging rape allegation against Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo and wife of singer,Timi Dakolo has no doubt caught the attention of some Men of God.
Senior Pastor of Covenant Christian Centre, Poju Oyemade shared his thoughts on Monday via Instagram moments before the embattled pastor of the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA) announced that he was stepping down.
Mr Oyemade said he was addressing the matter based on requests by many about his position on the issue.
He said he could only watch the tape for a few minutes as ”it was difficult to sit through it.”
“I immediately contacted the spiritual leader in the Body of Christ I believe Pastor Biodun defers in authority to, to wade into the issue and bring about a decision.
“He informed me of his position. It was that Pst Biodun should first step down from the pulpit indefinitely, suspend 7days of glory and make a public statement. These he made known to him directly in an hour.”
He said they had three objectives in mind – justice, healing and redemption.
“It is apparent that the manner in which our Pentecostal Churches were/are born with an individual receiving a call directly from God and we all operating largely as independent bodies, our governing structures are not as strong as in the orthodox church settings with the exemption of Pentecostal denominations where you are appointed a pastor and can be easily sanctioned.”
