|John Kumuyi and Love Odih's wedding versus another Deeper Life member's wedding|
As a child, I remember attending Deeper life and know first hand what Deeper life doctrine is. What my mom suffered in their hands after I broke away? Anyway, she finally left on her own to another pentecostal church and I heard then that they actually prayed and fasted for her, for "backsliding."
Some people say Deeper life doctrines relate to a different kind of religion. Someone said they are like the Taliban's of Christianity. I remember when it was a big sin to own a TV. As a child, I can't recall what happened to our TV after my mom
joined The Deeper Christian Life Ministry, all I remember is that we never saw it again. But these days they even have a website I guess? I also remember my mother resigning from a job that gave us a good life then because the church doctrines won't allow.
Living by those doctrines? Life was hehehehe. Those doctrines don't need you to diet before you lose weight cause it comes naturally.
Up till this moment, I respect members of that denomination cos that lifestyle is not possible without the special grace of God Almighty. After I broke away (Rebellion, according to the doctrine). I remember my classmates in Secondary School who won't share even their eraser with a non Deeper life member cos they say "we non members,had many ways of making money while they have just one source (Their parents)" I wonder who told them that all non member children had boyfriends. Truth is, we saw those girls as very stingy then and right now many of them are no longer members.
The number of Nigerians who tasted Deeper life and eventually left is soooo huge that their doctrines are not strange to many.
Our talking and blogging about it cannot change anything cos they are unequally yoked with "unbelievers" and follow the narrow path that leads to life. I remeber leaving a comment in a blog when I read that John apologized to the church, I said that he won't be forgiven. He will face the rod. I said it. Those who tied turbans on their wedding day won't be happy if nothing is done, those who wore maxi and flats will cry foul.
Make-up is a no no no for "floor members" not to talk of "owners" kids" I just knew they'd be punished or face possible excommunication, but didn't know that their parents would be this affected.
If this couple were still kids it would have been a different matter. Right now, these are two adults who have started their own family. Punishing their parents for their misconduct is what I don't understand. Love Odi's Father is on suspension and now W.F. Kumuyi himself is opting to resign his position as the General Overseer of The Deeper life church. Why?
Is it the parents' fault that these two adults rode in a limousine?
I don't agree with parents suffering for adult kids. That's not fair.
