Unholy Support By Pastor Enoch A. Adeboye

So there are quite a wide array of topics to analyze with respect to this article and the follow up declaration of support. At the risk of stating the obvious, I am deeply concerned that Pastor Ayodele Joseph Oritsejafor  would purchase a plane. While I call bs on his entire justification of the need to have the plane, to me the issue is really less about the plane and more about Power and Control, Entitlement and Misuse of Funds. To me the purchase of the plane is about showing off.  Pastor Ayodele Joseph Oritsejafor wants to live the high life. He wants to be treated like royalty. He wants others to be in awe of him due to personal possessions and self-imposed glory. People should be in awe of him because of his incredible dedication and service to Christ.  

With that being said I would like to switch the focus to Pastor E.A Adeboye words of support: “Pastor Ayodele Joseph Oritsejafor is a man of GOD I trust and I can personal vouch for him. I believe on the issue of his aircraft being chartered and the purpose it was used for he had no prior knowledge. I'm sure God will continue to build His church and the gates of hell will not prevail in JESUS name”.  
 

I feel that Pastor E.A Adeboye is aligning himself solely because he as well is in the pastoral business for Stature and Power. He is a greedy individual that wants to be recognized as a man of God while being treated like Royalty (Daddy G.O). This type of behavior is not Christ like and in fact is hypocritical. I am not saying that pastors need to live a life of poverty, however, I believe it to be irresponsible to use parishioner paid donations to fund lavish and luxury items for the pastor. This whole debate of justifying the expenditures under the guise of what is best for Christ is unacceptable. It disturbs me that parishioners buy into this hook line and sinker. Why do you believe everything your pastor says? While yes it is important to live a Christ like life, please remember to analyze your pastor in a critical light. Make sure that you are not being brainwashed or receiving a skewed story of justification.
 
Another grave issue that I have is that Pastor E.A Adeboye is coming out now with his words of support for Pastor Ayodele Joseph Oritsejafor. This is plain and simply ignorant on his part. Why not let the findings of the investigation emerge prior to issuing your declaration of support? To me this shows that he supports Pastor Ayodele Joseph Oritsejafor only because he is a pastor. There is no basis for Pastor E.A Adeboye support as the findings of the investigation have not yet been made public.
