Who Says Bishop David Oyedepo Is Not A Living Legend?

I recently heard Rhythm naming some Nigerians as living legends, why is Bishop david Oyedepo's name not there?

I trip to Canaanland - Ota will show anyone that this man is a legend, I heard his ministry is set to Open another university

called Landmark University soon after the order of Covenant University which is a pace setter in Private university administration.

Am sure you are not a pastor and if you are you lack basic understanding of the Gospel. I think you need to go and read your Bible very well. No need to argue with you.

people are just funny. Dangote owns a jet. Cecilia Ibru owns a jet. Erastus own a jet, I can not stop counting. Why do you like to attack good people? What have you done to the likes of IBB that stole our money? Nothing. The jet belong to a church (Living Faith Church aka Winners Chapel) and the church is being pastored by Bishop Oyedepo. The main thing that you need to ask yourself has this man been involve in any fraud. The could have decided to be involved in politics if it is the money that is looking for. At least he is a PHD holder.

His ministry is not the first to buy jet Kenneth Copeland ministries have about 27 aircrafts. What is your problem? The enemy of Nigerian are not being attacked but rather the children of God that are sent to help the masses. Boko Haram is there for you to fight. Please think well before writing your comments.

Let us fight Boko Haram together.

A Christian can only prosper thru his giving

2 Corinthians 9:6-8

6 But this[ I say], He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully. 7 Every man according as he purposeth in his heart,[ so let him give]; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver. 8 And God[ is] able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all[ things], may abound to every good work:

Has xtianity now become an issue of wealth, money and being a legend etc. do we now need the praise of men.

Its great to give to God, my over 20 years as a xtian has shown me that. However its so unfortunate to see a man of God who base his whole message on prosperity and nothing else. these wealth you see is temporary (a thing of the world). Money can achieve so much in doing God's will on earth, but the love of money is also the root of all evils. A lot of pastors actually need to sit down and consider their ways when it comes to the issue of money and riches.

My own very pastor borrowed money from me and did not pay me back, after 18 months, I left the church because I just cant understand why he should treat me that way. When he got to know I left for that reason, he didnt even apologise, he only tried to psyche me and refuse to admit that he wronged me. The fact that one is a pastor doesnt mean he cant make mistakes, afterall he is still human.

pastors actually needs our prayers, so they can do God's will alone

What does it take to be a living legend? can a poor man be regarded as a living legend? As per Bishop Oyedepo, has anyone asked where he is getting the millions from? Could it be from tithes and offering alone? I honestly doubt this. The magnitude of the project he has done is much more than what the tithes and offering can explain. Does Covenant University belong to him or the Church he is leading?

These are some questions that need to be answered before we start crucifying or commending anyone. If the source of fund is the tithes and offering, then why is he the living legend instead of the church members?

The problem is that NIGERIANS LIKE TO CELEBRATE WEALTH EVEN WHEN THE SOURCE IS SHROUDED IN MYSTERY. I believe that one day God will raise up someone in Nigeria that will want our 'suddenly rich' religious, political and traditional rulers to tell all of us how their sweat earned them the wealth they have so that all of us will be able to practice their hardwork in order to reduce poverty in Nigeria.

The fact is that:

1. the bottom of riches STINKS.

2. Many are involved in MONEY RITUALS; embezzling/stealing money belonging to the people including being allocated oil wells by their friends in govt while the inhabitants of the oil rich region languish in poverty.

2. Claiming God's promises as they preached does not bring cash from heaven -'if a man does not work let him not eat'. so what work do our own 'wealthy men of God do- we know Paul, Barnabas worked?

3. So called charitable giving should not blind the mind of the people from asking for the source of these unexplainable wealth.

4. We know those in govt have access to public money and they unfortunately steal to their satisfaction, but tithe and offering do not belong to one man- so where do they get the wealth from?

5. 'Erelu Jesu' will need to throw more light on all her confessions- she may be able to provide some answers to many of the questions.

Oyedepo bad, Adeboye bad,Chris Bad, catholic priest bad(U.S)

Now every Pastor, Preacher that is in the limelight is bad, gradually people have started loosing faith even those that have been in the race for long, i will just say watch it, there is something behind all this.

One of the reasons that will make the anti-christ accepted is because all religion would be deemed to have failed, and only he has the solution

Did you ever read the Bible? Do you know you're not supposed to follow idolatry? When you make graven images of God like with the picture included in your message above, do you realise that is idolatry? Now telling you this - am I judging you or simply reminding you what the Bible says?

Better pick up a copy of the Word and read rather than reading daily prayer guides.

MANY false prophets and even the very ELECT if they re not very very careful they too can be deceived by the boastful gluttonous sweet mouthed of these false teachers,,,

Did you not read in ur Bible where JESUS went to the synagogue and saw people trading and merchandising in the house of God,,,and Jesus destroyed all their merchandise,,,Haven't you heard or read about the barean christian in the Bible??Now let me tell you a story;

Joel Ostein is popular preacher in the USA,,,he once made a wrong unscriptural statement on CNN,,,his church members held him to ransom that he should go to same media to refute that statement,,and he did,,,tell me how many of ur Nigerian pastors would or can do that? As a result of the incessant complains here on NL,,RCCG Head quarters were forced to make certain unscriptural statements on their websites,,,,

Many of the truths being discussed here on NL are actually been assessed by these so called men of God or their agents,,,Not quite long ago,,Pastor Tunde Bakare who happens to be one of the few Nigerian pastor I respect,,,granted an interview to a magazine in nigeria,,,,and almost all the views that Kunleosho has been emphasising here on NL were strongly UPHELD by Tunde Bakare,,,

If you must be sincere to urself,,,open ur eyes clearly and see,,,

Any one who preaches that there are some sins that the sacrifice of Jesus does not cover is beneath contemptible. This is what Oyedepo did in a tape that I saw some years ago; IIRC two examples were given ---- both on the basis that they had promises attached. The first was (a) honour your father and mother . . . that it may be well with you and (b) ( . . . don't tell me you can't guess this one!!!)

Oh ok then:

(b) Bring all the tithe into the store-house . . . that I may rebuke the devourer.

It is not about being rich or poor, it is about the fact that oyedepo is one of the false prophets the bible warns us about who would twist and distort the scriptures for the sake of extorting money from the flock. It is quite obvious oyedepo is NOT doing the will of God but only feeding his own greed. The gospel of Jesus is not about earthly material possesions that prosperity pimps would like to have you believe, it is the gospel of the Kingdom of God and how to get there and your oyedepo is one of the preachers that specialize in twisting the teachings of the bible for material gain and in the process lead several away from the kingdom of God. At least you won't say you weren't told, if you like keep on believing in a man instead of focusing on the teachings of christ.

Can I just say well done to people who have tried to make these people see sense. Well done o.

God has blessed these men, and if you like cry, whoever God has blessed is blessed indeed. Even the devil himself can't do jack about it

2) If you think it's easy to talk a poor man to drop a penny, open your own church if God didn't call you, and see if you won't become wise in a sec.

3) Bishop Oyedepo has been a giver and is still a giver, dangerous giver at that. And we all know we reap what we sow.

4) The ministry wasnt always this successful, during those day nobody said anything o. Bishop Oyedepo was steadfast, trusting God, and God being God that is a covenant keeper has rewarded him greatly.

5) No matter what you do, you'll always get those ones who are way over themselves. And also the poor will always be in our midst, no matter what.

6) You guys should really direct ur criticism at the government. Nigerian Gov. not an individual.

Finanlly, believe it or not if everyone stops offering, tithe, seeds etc. God will bless who He will. And it'll be to their own detriment.

May God grant us understanding!

Indeed the bible warned us about crooks like oyedepo here is one of the several arnings in the bible about charlatans like him:

2 Peter 2:3:

3 In their greed these false teachers would make up clever lies to get hold of your money. But God condemned them long ago, and their destruction will not be delayed.

Deformation of people's character, scandalising people reputation,ridiculing respected men of God does not and cannot change God's principles. Give and it shall be given unto you. it's not oyedepo's principle ,it's the Divine principle. somebody said he has been listening to oyedepo's messages for 10 years and nothing change in his life .Oh yes! you need to ask yourself some questions. Am I really motivated by the spirit of God or my flesh? Is my heart right with God ? If you did not have cogent answers to these questions, then go back to God and settle your case with HIM by the time you come back you'll understand why Bishop Oyedepo is getting blessed continously. God bless you as He has blessed Oyedepo.

Which labour are you talking about??

What work does oyedepo do apart from deceiving people into parting with their hard earned money all in the name of blessings.

People are digging trenches in the rain, packing faeces at night, riding an okada, 24/7 being security guards and what do they do give 10% to oyedepo for tithes, take more for seeds, CU project fund, pew sacrifice, vows, offerings, thanksgiving, first fruit e.t.c after all these god will now "bl£$$" oyedepo with private jet while the poo packers and grave diggers are waiting their turn that'll never come - you must be joking! So god cannot share his blessings equally. He gives it all to the "servant" and nothing for members.

What is the essence of his bl£$$ing$ when majority of people are poor yet he feels the need to purchase jets and build expensive schools{with peoples money} that they can't afford.

This is the height of brainwashing.

His members are not blessed anything! Infact only oyedepo seems to be getting all the bl£$$ing$. So because he's a so called servant of god he should get a space craft abi? While the poor people who's money is feeding the silly man continue to wallow in poverty waiting for open heavens.

My freind wake up and stop deceiving yourself! Any good thing you got came as a result of your hardwork and not the deluded ramblings of a greedy leprachaun called oyedepo.

When will the members of the church whose money he used to build a school a school that most of them can't afford to send their children to, buy a private jet and send his children to study abroad start reaping?

My dear brother, it does not really matter how long one has been asking God , it's a matter of how consistent we are in asking and the situation of our hearts. Let me tell you! There are hundreds and thousands of Nigerians and non Nigerians who are enjoying the blessings of God financially and materially today through the word of Faith preached by Bishop Oyedepo. I'am not living in Nigeria but blessed through his words . I have never seen oyedepo or attended any of his services but his God given messages has transformed my life in all ramification.He's blessed and his members are blessed too . The Bible says that ''the husbandman must first be the partaker of the fruit''He's enjoying the fruit of his labor because he's a servant of the Most-High. If there's something better than a private jet, a servant of God deserves it.God has blessed His people with all sorts of blessings ,so my brother private jet is too small. If you are not careful,the next news you;ll receive is that Bishop Oyedepo owns a private space craft.

That is just EXACTLY how oyedepo says it -i'm sure you took that quote verbatim from him. I spent 10 good years of my life listening to the crap that man preaches and i can pretty much narrow the general theme of his sermons to "Thanksgiving Key to Open Heavens" "Tithes and vows the way to provoke god" "Sacrifice key to wealth and success" - Everytime is give, give, give! Haba!

When are members gonna start reaping??

With all the givings how many church members are billonaires??

Only oyedepo is a naira billonaire with an empire and a private jet while members languish in poverty.

The nasty man even has a hot temper and one would think as a christian anger is a sin. Ask any CU graduate or current student {not the ones that worship him} and they'll tell you his hot outbursts and impulsive actions. The worst is the way even the pastors fear him as if he's god. The whole thing tire me sef!

We should be very ,very careful when it comes to spiritual issues and I strongly believe that God will not take it lightly with anybody deforming the character of an annointed man of God. Bishop oyedepo could be seen by some people as manipulator of men but some are seeing him as a man that understands very early the mysteries behing giving and sewing of seeds and he's contaminating the lives of people with words of faith.

Being a legend or not is not the issue . Bishop oyedepo has a ministry and spiritual responsibilities to his generation  just the way the wonderful man of God W.F Kumuyi has and other men of God. I think they are trying to fulfil their ministeries and it will not be good to destroy them with our mouth. We can bless them by praying for them . The just shall live by faith. Bishop oyedepo is living by faith. I'am one of the people that Bishop Oyedepo messages transformed. You can be transformed as well .God is not looking for complainers he 's looking for people who believe like Bishop Oyedepo.

Papa David Oyedepo is a living legend, believe it or not

I will advise you go to the church, see things for yourself before making false comments, this can cost you heaven. Do you know know that

His prosperity is purely divine. He does not take or even touch the money that comes from offering or the ones from the university, even the ones from the books he writes doesn't enter his pocket, they go back to the productin of more books.

So how does he make his money? It is purely through divine provision. You really need to read one of the books he has re-written so you can see things for yourself.

Please do not say what you do not know. God is watching.

God bless

Most of the people here who have been totally brainwashed by their pastors are here ranting why they shld be legends

without even knowing the true meaning of the word.

A Legend is one whose lifetime activities or contributions to the advancement of society fit into the realm of a myth, prodigy or fable.

It is like a story, too good to be true. 

To qualify for a legend, it is expected that ones achievements and contributions to the society must be consistent and span over a period of time, considerably.

It is doubtful if a 10 or 12 year achievement would qualify one to be called a legend. 

Also, such achievements or contributions must be without Wax i.e. not  a patch work, have not been condemned in any quarters and one that should be encouraged to continue in the interest of the society.

  A Legend is forever, thus a living legend is one who has satisfied the above criteria and very importantly, advanced in age, nearing his God’s giving time on earth, thereby leaving very little time for any possible pollution of achievements.   In other words, one cannot be a legend today and tomorrow, becomes a non-legend.

[b]So tell me how Oyedepo qualifies to be a Legend[/b]

WHAT HAS HE DONE TO AFFECT THE LIFE OF AN AVERAGE NIGERIAN

TELL ME IF AN AVERAGE MEMBER OF HIS CHURCH CAN SEND HIS WARD TO ANY OF OYEDEPO'S SCHOOL

YET YOU ARE CALLING HIM A LEGEND
