Popular preacher, Pastor W.F. Kumuyi has allegedly stated that some of his church’s doctrines that are man-made will be destroyed.
Pastor Kumuyi, who is the founder and general superintendent of the Deeper Life Bible church, reportedly took to his pulpit, to deliver a message that left some, if not all of his members, shocked.
The 74-year-old preacher who preached on ‘The word in a transformed believer’ during the service, was said to have openly criticized some sections of the church.
The preacher expressed his disappointment that some of the church leaders had messed up the church’s doctrines. He went on to say that some of the doctrines they practiced were man made, and were created by him and not the scriptures. Pastor Kumuyi went on to state that some of those man-made rules were going to be abolished before he ‘dies’.
Charging his members, he said:
“Are we not conforming with the world? Why are you dressing like people of the world? Women ministry is our own making, and if we find out that the women ministry is taking us into the world and we are helping each other on how to leave like the world and marry like the world and deal with your husband like the world- if it is not helping us and if it is going to hinder us, we strike if off. Before I leave, I mean before I go, I am going to remove everything that I set up, that I thought will help Deeper Life and make us Holy, make us sanctified, make us deep, make us deeper. And I see it is not making us deeper, before I leave, I will uproot all of them and present to you a pure church before I leave”
“What am I afraid of? I can only be afraid of the judgement of God, therefore whoever responds, praise the lord, whoever reacts praise the lord. We are going to stand on the word of God. By the grace of God I am not going yet, but, before I go and I am telling you and all our leaders can hear. I am not going to hand over Deeper Life to somebody who will come and destroy everything we’ve built up for years, because he’s man pleaser, women pleaser, never! Somebody who will stand on this word and earnestly defend the faith once delivered unto the saints, that’s what we are going to do. And the whole church will unite. We are not looking for graduates, degrees- whoever! Peter did not have a degree.”
He further stated that he’ll be handing over the leadership of the church to someone who will maintain the holiness which is the watchword of the church:
“Whoever, will maintain that sanctification, Holiness without which no man shall see the Lord, Whoever will have backbone and be willing to stand faithful, sacrifice everything and bring to church to obedience to the word of God, that’s the kind of leader, God will raise up for Deeper Life after I am gone”
