Nigerian renowned activist Reno Omokri has pleaded to media houses not to use the word “slammed” between him and Pastor Adeboye following his comment countering the statement of RCCG general overseer for supporting Israel in the ongoing war.
Pastor Adeboye who seems to show us supporting for Israel due to the significant role they play in Christianity as spark a heart blowing reaction from Reno Omokri, claiming Palestine also have Christians among them and the RCCG boss should not take side in the ongoing conflict instead plead for peace to reign without favoritism.
According to Reno Omokri, he said “I urge newspapers and other media to stop reporting that I "slammed" Pastor Enoch Adeboye. I did not! I have the utmost respect for Pastor Adeboye and would not slam him.
“Please read my post. I politely drew the attention of Pastor Adeboye to the necessity of also praying for Palestine and Palestinians, and not just Israel. It was further stated to the very respected cleric that half a million Palestinians are Christians who will feel ignored, abandoned, and denigrated when a prominent Nigerian Christian leader of global influence prays for Israel without praying for them and states explicitly that God will give "victory" to Israel. That prayer may indicate that Christians have sided with Israel against them.
“I stated that this may have been an oversight on the part of the pastor, and perhaps he could address it to give Palestinians a sense of belonging.
“Finally, I drew the eminent pontiff's attention to the fact that both Christian and Muslim Palestinians are friendly to Christians and act as custodians of many of the holy sites of Christianity, including the birthplace of our Lord, Yeshua Hamashiach in Bethlehem, and his suspected residence in Nazareth, as well as Jericho, the city where Yeshua (Jesus) encountered Zacchaeus. They have never defiled these holy sites and are helpful to Christian pilgrims, including those from Nigeria.
“I have taught at multiple Redeemed Christian Church of God in several locations worldwide, and greatly admire the work that Pastor Adeboye has done in spreading the Gospel. Drawing his attention to the sufferings of Palestinians and urging that he include them in his prayers is certainly not 'slamming' him.
