Doyin Okupe has prayed for his son, Bolu, who recently came out as a gay man.
Okupe had released a statement stating that he is vehemently opposed to homosexuality.
On Saturday morning, he shared a new post on Facebook where he prayed for his son, Bolu, and his other children. He stated that Bolu isn’t a criminal and that he lives in France where homosexuality isn’t a crime. He stated that Bolu will still be celebrated in Nigeria and globally.
Doyin shared a photo of another of his son, Dewunmi. Doyin wrote:
“This is also my son Dewunmi Okupe, one of Bolu Okupe’s 5 other brothers.
I love all the children God has given me, Bolu inclusive.
I pray for them to excel in their fields of endeavors.
Bolu will still be celebrated on this wall, in Nigeria and globally, in the name of Jesus.
I believe the Scriptures and the Holy Bible assures me in Isaiah 3 vs 10:
TELL THE RIGHTEOUS, IT SHALL BE WELL WITH HIM.
All my children shall be for great signs and wonders in Jesus’ Name.
Bolu is not a criminal. He lives in France where Homosexuality is not a crime.
His present mindset and sexual orientation do not conform to Christian Doctrine which I hold to with my life. But I am certain that with the boldness he has made his declaration, he will still use the same attribute to serve God and boldly declare His Glory in Christ Jesus.
Mark my words.”
