Pastor Enoch Adeboye, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, has cautioned young preachers to flee from youthful lust, or face the repercussion when their sins catch up with them sooner or later.
In what could be regarded as a veiled response to rape allegations surrounding the senior pastor of the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly, Biodun Fatoyinbo, Pastor Adeboye in a sermon last night, advised pastors against hiding under the guise of grace to sin.
He also added that although, he might seem old-fashioned, but he will never have a private female secretary because when accused by a woman, nobody listens to the man’s side of the story to know whether he’s right or wrong.
He said, “I feel compelled to say some things to those that are young and up and coming ministers.
“What I want to say is from the Bible: There is nothing hid that shall not come to the open or made manifest. Mark 4:22
“Sooner or later, your sins will find you out if you continue in sin under the guise of grace. Numbers 32:23
“Abstain from every appearance of evil. 1 Thessalonians 5:22.
“2 Timothy 2:22. When you find yourself facing youthful lust, flee; don’t say you’re highly anointed or something, ask Samson. You may say I’m old fashioned, I agree. I’ll never have a private secretary who’s a woman. When a woman accuses you of something, nobody will listen to you whether you’re right or wrong; be wise!”
