“You don’t know somebody’s strength until you touch his wife” – Bishop Oyedepo reacts to CAMA

Bishop David Oyedepo who is the presiding bishop of the Living Faith Church, Worldwide aka Winners Chapel, has expressed his displeasure about the newly ammended Company and Allied Matters Act, which empowers the government to remove board of trustees and even close accounts of churches

He stated categorically that the Church was not a club, neither should it be mistaken for a company.

Bishop Oyedepo during the sunday service at Canaanland, issued a warning to the Federal Government to discontinue their plans regarding CAMA.

He spoke as thus;
“To appoint Board of Trustees! You’ll appoint an Occultist to be Manager of Church Affairs? When this crude prophet is alive? When all the sons of the Prophet are alive? May I say this sir, the Church is not a club and should not be mistaken for a company

Do you know why? The Church is God’s only heritage on earth (1 Peter 5:3). You tamper with somebody’s inheritance; you will see something. The Church is the Bride of Christ (2 Corinthians 11:2, Revelation 21:9). The Church is the Body of Christ (Acts 9:5).

“Who was Paul persecuting? The Church! Who said, “I’m the One you are persecuting?” Jesus! This country is going too far and it’s a risk. I saw something on CAMA (Company Allied Matters Act) and they put religious bodies there that Registrar-General can remove Trustees without a recourse to the court. Don’t try it!

“It must be somebody dreaming somewhere who woke up on the wrong side on the bed that carted that thing into the middle of it as their custom is. I’m 51 years young in this thing, I’ve been with Jesus for some time and I’m sent as a Prophet to the nations; don’t try it,” he warned.

According to Oyedepo, “That a Minister can remove a Trustee and close the accounts of the Church: when the history of this time will be written, many will be ashamed to be Nigerians except the Church.

“You don’t know somebody’s strength until you touch his wife.
