Pastors And Controversies...kumuyi's Example




On a certain day some years ago, Pastor W.F. Kumuyi was aflight en route Nigeria after ministering at a crusade abroad.

On the plane he sat by a chap who initiated a discussion. In the course of the discussion, this guy made Deeper Life Bible Church, its members, mode of dressing and several other aspects of the church the topic of discussion. He took his time to disparage Kumuyi's church and members while Pastor Kumuyi just smiled away.

At some point in the discussion the guy asked that they exchange acquaintances. He introduced himself and asked Kumuyi to do same. To his utmost surprise, he was not just sitting side by side with the General Superintendent of the Deeper Christian Life Ministry but also had spent over an hour castigating him and his church, unknowingly.

After his exclamations, he asked Kumuyi why he never put up any defence or express disapproval of his critical attitude towards his church and members. And Kumuyi just smiled and replied there was no need...and the man was inspired to give his life to Christ.

I pray our pastors who are currently embroiled in recent attacks on their persons and personalities would learn from Papa Kumuyi.



Take note:

You don't fight your battles, God does.

You do not need to be asked to forgive, you forgive.

No man can pull you down, except you allow him.

The church cannot be destroyed by Satan and his army of demons and humans. Never!

It's only in lifting up Christ will all men be drawn to Him not in defending ourselves.

IF THERE'S ANYONE TO DEFEND, IT IS JESUS AND JESUS ALONE.

IF THERE'S ANY VIRTUE, IT'S HIS FORGIVING LOVE.
