Pastor Enoch Adeboye, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) has reframed his earlier call on Christians in the country to return fire for fire being unleashed by the enemies of State.
The Pastor, who clarified the issue he raised in his earlier stand which went viral yesterday, now advised Christians not to buy guns for self-protection, saying: “I never asked Christians to go and buy guns. Samson in the Bible did not fight with guns.”
He emphasized today, July 3 at the monthly thanksgiving live television programme of the church: “don’t buy guns. You don’t want to kill anybody. We just must make sure that unwanted visitors don’t come to our churches, so don’t go and buy guns.”
At the Holy Ghost Service yesterday, Pastor Adeboye had urged members of the church not to be afraid to attend church programmes because of terrorists attack on a church in Owo, Ondo State.
He had made it clear that “it is now fire-for-fire for any attack on Christians, and commanded them to rise to the occasion by calling the bluff of the devil.
