Pastor David Ibiyeomie of Salvation Ministry, says he is ready to clamp down on critics of Bishop David Oyedepo of Living Faith Church, his spiritual father.
The renowned clergy made the assertion on Sunday during a service at the church’s headquarters, in Port Harcourt the Rivers State capital.
According to him, his reverence to Oyedepo is beyond a physical honour, stressing that he is not part of those who hypocritically kneel before the man of God but slander him behind.
He said, “I have never gone physically before Oyedepo to do eye service. I have never knelt down to greet him. I am not from there. That is their culture. Here, when we respect someone, it is from the inside. You can lie down there in hypocrisy and after the person is gone, you stand up and say, “Oloshi ni e* (He is an unfortunate person)
Honour is not how you kneel down. Honour is a heart issue. It is more of the heart than physical display. You can lie down on the ground and have no honour. I’ve seen people who said they will die with Oyedepo and still turn around to abuse him.
I honour him to a point that you can’t talk about him negatively where I am. You are not born to talk about him. I will chew you raw. Our heart is the part that connects us to the flow of prophetic blessings”.
