This man was one of the people who brought prosperity gospel to Nigeria around 1980s, another gospel different from the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. There are two painful things the devil successfully used this man to do in Christianity in Nigeria:
1, he helped to destroy the heavenly mission and messages of several ordained ministers of God. People like Pastor Adeboye, Bishop Oyedepo, Bishop Francis Wale Oke, etc. had personal relationship with Bishop Idahosa and their ministries never remained the same in the right path again. If you knew the above mentioned ministers in their campuses or early ministries, they had heavenly conscious mission and they were holiness preachers, but some of them got the shipwreck of their faith and ministries when they came across Bishop Idahosa.
2, this man turned Christianity upside down. I heard someone quoted Bishop Idahosa that he met Church in Nigeria in poverty when he came back to Nigeria, but turned things around. Yes, he was right. When Idahosa came with gospel of prosperity, most churches in Nigeria were financially poor but spiritually rich; then the church had few cars among the members but you don’t need to speak in tongues before you know a child of God in deed. Before the arrival of prosperity gospel in Nigeria, companies were writing letters to church to employ their members because of faithfulness and diligence among the church. But today if a church member manage to get job offer and asked to bring letter of guarantor from his pastor, the pastor will be afraid to guarantee his church members because of various disappointments. As the pastor is looking for means to defraud his members so also the members towards the pastor, it’s who succeed first.
This is the type of Christianity prosperity gospel has brought to us.
And you as a person, what name should I call you? You know all the evils, immoralities, politics and games of powers and positions that are going on in your prosperity modern church among the pastors, workers and members that sometimes you wonder if that church even deserve to be called a church of God or if the pastors deserve to be called men of God. But you will come on Facebook to defend what is not defendable and condemn those who speak the truth to deliver the captives from the deception of these modern preachers.
For how long will you continue to deceive yourself and to defend this faulty gospel of modern church and these misleading preachers, until you get to hell fire?
Others may be deceived but you can choose not to be; others may continue in this faulty, fake and frivolous modern gospel of prosperity and unguided freedom, but you should be wise and beware!
Let’s repent and return to the old time faith of our founding fathers of faith, of holiness with godliness before the Master returns.
Jeremiah 6:16, “Thus says the LORD: “Stand in the ways and see, And ask for the old paths, where the good way is, And walk in it; Then you will find rest for your souls. But they said, ‘We will not walk in it.’
