“By the way, when he makes noise about his private jet of a thing, do you know that I once acquired a 1707 with the logo of our church on it? Are you aware of that?” Bakare said on Oyedepo’s private jet
Popular Pastor in Nigeria and founder of Citadel Global Community Church, Tunde Bakare, has disclosed the reason he tore a book written by Bishop David Oyedepo of the Living Faith Church publicly.
Speaking on a Television Continental (TVC’s) programme; ‘The Big Talk’, monitored by Platforms Africa in Lagos, Pastor Bakare maintained that he tore the book because it was full of errors.
Platforms Africa also reports that the programme was anchores by pipular columnist; Sam Omatseye.
The book, which claimed that anointing oil is not a symbol of the Holy Spirit was erroneously written, Bakare declared.
The clergyman, however declared that he has nothing against Bishop Oyedepo, maintaining that he only stands for the truth.
“There is a difference between issues and persons,” he began.
“I have nothing personal against any man of God including Oyedepo, but I will always defend the truth that I know, and I will always make it plain,” he said.
“How can someone say the anointing oil is not a symbol of the Holy Spirit? It is the release of God in the bottle. If it is told to a few people, it is okay.
“If anointing oil is the Holy Spirit, then Jesus is a lamb walking on four legs. They are symbols,” he declared.
In the TVC programme, Bakare also said he and Oyedepo were on a plane one time and another brother was coming over to greet him, but on seeing them together, he froze.
When asked whether the incident was before Oyedepo acquired his private jet, Bakare said he doesn’t know why the clergyman made so much noise about his private jet.
“By the way, when he makes noise about his private jet of a thing, do you know that I once acquired a 1707 with the logo of our church on it? Are you aware of that? But we use it for business. I don’t buy a plane to be spending money on it; that I can jump quickly on another and pay little money to where I’m going.
“We can afford it; we are not envious of them at all,” he added.
Speaking on his differences with Oyedepo, Bakare said the gospel and truth is one but when someone “begins to twist the truth to make it funny,” he will speak out.
