Pastor Enoch Adeboye Goes Tough on Thieving Pastors


It is on scriptural records that Jesus Christ, when winding up his mission of salvation about two thousand years ago, expressed his ambivalence about finding faith in the world when he returns. He must have seen with precision the impending decadence awaiting Christendom after his departure. With the increasing incidence of fraudulent pastors in the vineyard of the Lord, especially in the vast Redeemed Christian Church of God fold, the General Overseer, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has issued a stern warning to his protégé-pastors to be more forthright and honest in their handling of church finances.

Multiple sources claim that the self-effacing powerful clergy had been inundated and buffeted with a groundswell of reports about the unholy activities of some of his pastors, bordering majorly on financial shenanigans. In view of this, the former academic turned pastor decided to call his junior pastors to order charging them on the virtues of accountability and transparency. We gathered that this admonition was contained in a letter issued to all the pastors fingered in the corruption conundrum while warning them to stop it forthwith or face the full wrath of God.

Further, Pastor Adeboye reportedly charged the erring pastors to be more responsible for their congregation by taking care of those in need while instructing the branch heads to have a petty cash book, asset register, income analysis and bank book to serve as a quality audit of the ministry’s account book.
