Bishop David Oyedepo of Living Faith Church has warned Christians to seperate themselves from people that criticize pastors, stating that such an attitude attracts leprosy.
Oyedepo made the statement during the Leadership Empowerment Summit at the church’s headquarters, Faith Tabernacle, Canaanland, Ota, Ogun State.
The renowned clergy stressed that the warnings are based on spiritual insights.
"Beware of speaking hurt against the ministry you claim to be part of advancing, it’s a risk.
"Beware of speaking hurt against a Prophet you claim to believe. It is dangerous.
"It can make a man leprous. It is dangerous. We don’t have the data of how many victims may have come from this warning, but I know quite some would have been victims.
One of the Leaders in this Nation said, "what we are saying now, Bishop is in his room. he is hearing." When we give warnings, we give it based on prophetic insights."
"Every prophet is ordained to be spoken against. So it is not a problem. It is already written. It is not that it is something that is new," he said.
