Apologize To Daddy Freeze – Bamgbose Urges Ibiyeomie, Eneche
Olusegun Bamgbose has urged Salvation Ministries’ Pastor Ibiyeomie and Paul Enenche of Dunamis International Christian Centre to apologize to Daddy Freeze.
This came after Daddy Freeze publicly apologized abusing Bishop David Oyedepo of the Living Faith Church.
Bamgbose, Esq., National Coordinator, Concerned Advocates for Good Governance, CAGG, advised that Freeze’s apology should be accepted while urging Pastor Ibiyeomie and Enenche not to feel justified for attacking the controversial OAP.
“Let’s set the matter straight, there was no scriptural justification whatsoever, for attacking Daddy Freeze, in the first instance. Pastor Ibiyeomie called him a bastard, Pastor Enenche referred to him as a mad dog,” Bamgbose said in chat with DAILY POST on Sunday.
“These statements shouldn’t have come up. Daddy Freeze is a social commentator, not a Christian.
“I’m not in any way justifying his morally decadent statement, but one would expect the Pastors to pray for his conversion, rather than resorting to attacking him.
“Does it mean members of their Churches should be free to call whoever offends them, bastard and mad dog?
“The answer is No. The God Oyedepo serves can defend him, without the assistance of any Pastor or clergyman. Men of God are called to defend the gospel, not other men of God
“The pulpit is sacred and holy. Members may feel justified and equally use similar words when annoyed by their fellow men. This will not be in the best interest of the Church.
“Pastors should watch their temperament on the pulpit. Our Lord Jesus was nailed to the cross, he never cursed or abused them, but said, ‘Father forgive them, for they know not what they do.’ Stephen was stoned to death, he never cursed his assailants but prayed for them.
“The Jews told Jesus, that he is demonic, he never cursed them. There is, therefore, no scriptural basis for attacking Daddy Freeze.
“They should rather pray for him to know the truth. As a mark of reconciliation, and in the spirit of forgiveness and humility, I’ll equally expect the Pastors to apologize to Daddy Freeze. They are called to be humble. This is in accordance with the Bible. No one is above apologizing.”
