Many Nigerians on social media seem shocked by the reaction of Bishop Oyedepo, the leader and founder of the Living Faith Church Worldwide, also known as Winner’s Chapel to the lamentations of the pastors sacked from the church.
Recall that a pastor who got himself sacked from the church took to the media to reveal the reason for the termination of his tenure at the church. Reports suggested that the pastor together with others were generating income lower than expected so needed to be sacked by the management of the church.
Well, addressing the issue at a church service, Bishop Oyedepo explained that the pastors were fired from their post as pastors of Winners Chapel because they were blatant failures and fruitless. According to him, those pastors who were sacked deserved nothing less than a termination of their tenure because they couldn’t produce enough for the branches they headed.
Taking to the comment section, Nigerians expressed their various reactions. Many people felt surprised by the clergyman’s utterances while others got extremely furious at it. Stating clearly that the work of pastors is to win souls not make income, others slammed the bishop calling him greedy and his words trash questioning if the bible asked him to generate income into the house of the LORD or win souls
