Pastor Adeboye reduces killings in Nigeria to equations, solves the maths


General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, Pastor Enoch Adeboye has broken down killings in parts of the country by suspected herdsmen to simultaneous equations in a bid to finding mathematical solution to the problem.

This happened on Friday night during the RCCG monthly Holy Ghost service at the Redemption Camp in Mowe, Ogun state, where the cleric also opened up on why he had not made personal comments about the killings.

Presenting the widespread destruction of lives as mathematical equations, Adeboye, who holds a Ph.D in mathematics, said, “There are certain problems beyond man

“There is no problem beyond God

“Man can hide from his fellow man

“No man can hide from God

“Security agents can be compromised

“God cannot be compromised. His holiness is not negotiable and cannot be compromised.

“Man can sponsor evil

“God cannot sponsor evil

While simultaneously solving the above problem, he said the equations just have one answer; which is that “a prayer warrior is more effective than an activist”.

On why he had not personally commented on the widespread killings in the country despite calls by people for him to speak out, Adeboye said he belongs to the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, and the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, PFN, ‎whose leaders have spoken on the issues on behalf of their members, including himself.

He described the correlation of answer to the tendency of enemies and some children of God to underrate the power of prayer.

Daddy GO, as he’s fondly called, then led the congregation in a series of prayers for the killers, people who connive with them and their sponsors to be exposed by God and dealt with.

In his main sermon, which was a continuation of the church’s sermon series, titled ‘Stronger than the enemy,” Adeboye likened the problems of individuals and nations to mountains, which can be moved by faith.

Recalling one of his prophecies for the year that “erstwhile stubborn mountains will move,” he called on the congregation to tackle their mountains head on.

Sharing a testimony, he spoke about a tree in the middle of a major road in Lokoja, Kogi sate, where he went for a programme.

He said residents told him that it could not be cut down for spiritual reasons but that he took note of that and went ahead with the programme.

The general overseer recalled that there was a rainstorm that night and by daybreak, the tree was on its side, completely uprooted.
