Former RCCG Pastor Berates Pastor Adeboye For Turning Annual Holy Ghost Congress To Political Congress

A former pastor of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Bankole Solomon has criticised the General Overseer of the church Pastor E.A Adeboye for allowing political leaders to “lie to” the saints on the altar of God.

According the statement released by the pastor who said he voluntarily resigned as pastor from the church in 2010 but still worships there, the church programme is purely a spiritual affair and politicians should not be allowed to mount the altar to fool the congregation.

Bankole's full post reads:
“I know this post will attract a sharp condemnation because I worship in RCCG and I was once a pastor before I resigned voluntarily because of rights violations in the name of religion. I resigned in December 2010 but I am still worshiping there as an ordinary member. So, whatever. I have here is without prejudice.

Holy Ghost congress of our great church is now a political congress where all shades of corrupt leaders will mount our altar to fool Nigerians on what they will do.

Holy Ghost congress is now a supermarket where all kinds of people like charlatans and political opportunist come shopping turning God to Father Christmas to give them end of d year bonus.

Jonathan was even there turning our once sacred altar to political podium talking deceitfully and indirectly campaigning for 2015. My question is this? On what ground was president Jonathan allowed to speak to people. Is he a pastor? Because the gathering is purely a spiritual gathering and event.

I’ve been a pastor in Redeemed for the past 10 years and I’ve not got any opportunity to sit on dat altar not to talk of holding mic. If because Jonathan is a President and he is recognized, it means some are more equal than others.

Immediately I left camp on Saturday morning, I looked at the camp very well because I know that would be the last time I willl set my foot to that Eagle Square called Redeemed camp.”

  1. bro bankole solomon, it is a pity that you have allowed sentiments and judgements to shade your belief and what you have been an advocate for.
    Matt. 7:1-4 says Judge not so that you will not be judge, for how can you say there is a speck in someones eye when there is a log in your own eye. first remove the log in your eye then you can that of your brother. Your walk with God and how God sees you is the most important. Its not whether you have climbed the exalted podium or not. And its not about GEJ. if by virtue of the fact that he is mr president and he is allowed to adress the crowd how does affect your personal walk with GOD. You do not know what transpired between GEJ and Pastor Adeboye, and it is not really your bizz to know. Your own is to maintain your walk with God. Except if your motive was wrong in the first place. If your motive is right, you dont have any bizz with this people. Your bizz is what has the Lord told you and have you obeyed. Its not for you to get angry or walk away saying you would never go to redeeme camp simply because GEJ was given an oppptunity to adress the crowd. now you will not know if GEJ asked for time to address the crowd. he is the president of the country, and if he wants to identify with a group you can deny. your own is to sift what is being said and take it back to God in prayer. i hope that somehow you get to read it and check your heart.

  2. I wonder who is the hypocrite between this man and jonathan.if you were better,you would have been the President of Nigeria or the General Overseer.But I could see your point,because you have not stepped on the alter before,so Jonathan shouldn't be there before you.

    No wonder he left the mission.i wonder want your motive is for serving God.God will definitely help you.

    One thing I know,God is not mocked,whatever a man sows he will reap.whether pastor or president.
