THE SLAPPING FESTIVAL......... AWESOME!!
So I'm sure most of you guys saw that video where Bishop Oyedepo slapped the living krase out of one chick who claimed to be a “witch for Jesus”. LOL.....as in ehn, me self was surprised when I watched it cos I never saw that coming eh. What I found very interesting was how this video just gained international attention recently. Mind you, this was a video that has been on youtube for almost a year now. But for some reason the thing has received so much attention recently...sotey it was even posted on worldstarhiphop.com :)
Well, a lot of people supported the Bishop's action, while others condemned it shaa. As for me, where do I stand? Umm well it depends. As much as I believe that 99% of Naija pastors are criminals, I still got some kind of respect for this dude tho. I remember like 7yrs ago, when I came back to Naija, my aunt took me to his church for a sunday worship, and mehnnn.....see church ehh. Even as I enter there, fear been catch me sef. The size of this dude's church is unfreaking-believable. Infact that Canaan land na city on its own. I was shocked for real. I gotta say the dude is smart tho. Even my younger bro is a very big fan of the guy. I remember when my bro been dey Naija, sometimes when I call am, im go tell me say im dey go Winners Chapel for spiritual week. Sometimes I go wan even ask am "O boy nawa4u ohh. Why you dey leave PH dey go all the way to Winners wey dey for Lasgidi? Na so the church take sweet you reach?" But I usually held back my words….make im no be like say me no want am to grow spiritually in Christ you know :)
Anyways I started getting irritated when my bro used to tell me how this guy commands people and boasts...and how he got a private jet....and so on and so forth. And I'm like wo wo wo...This nukka actually got himself a private jet? And majority of his congregation are struggling to make ends meet. And when Sunday comes, they give all their money to this dude, all in the name of tithes/offering/sowing a seed?
Anyways back to what I was yarning… So Mr. Bishop recently responded about the video, and this was what he said
The Bishop who was unrepentant said "People now complain on the Internet that I slapped a witch. If I see another one, I'll slap," Still, he bragged today, "It is my ministry to slap!"
LOL LOLZ LOLZ....Oga shey na your ministry to slap.......foolish man. You see this is how you know people that boast a lot, and feel like they're mini gods.
This na the same man wey been go see late Yaradua when he was sick, and after the meeting, he refused to respond to the questions regarding the president's condition as of then. Instead he stated
"It is true that I visited him, "It is a private visit, and I don't owe the public any obligation. It is a private visit and I don't want to comment further on it."
Like Really?? You see these days, I dont even blame these pastors so much. It’s all those so called members that I blame. We Nigerians are so caught up with this whole Christianity and Faith thingy, that we hardly use our brains anymore to think outside the box. And that’s why we easily become the mugus of these so called pastors/bishop/apostles/prophet/evangelist and all other names they be giving themselves.....all in the name of Christianity. Chai. Mehn God get plenty things to judge on that faithful day ohh.......
MY PEOPLE OPEN YOUR EYES AND STOP BEING DECEIEVED BY MOST OF THESE A**HOLES. I know some people might be offended because I dey criticize their daddy (You know say all these loyal members of churches are very very quick to defending their pastors....ha ha)
Anyways what I would really wonna know is this......Yes I know the bible said "Thou shall not suffer a witch to live"...and Mr. bishop can use that to underpin his decision to whoozing the chick. And he could also argue that he wasn’t slapping the girl directly… instead it was the witch inside her that he was targeting, since it used her to make mockery of God...okay fair enough.
Oya ohh lets do a lil Nawa4u algebra right here in regards to the incident.
If "Bishop + girl who claims to be a witch = SLAP"
Then "Bishop + Big politician or Wealthy member who claims to be a witch = ???????"
That’s Naija 4 u my people….the land of oppression :)
