Did Papa SBJO Make Any Mistake That Could Be Affecting The Church Now?

March 10, 2017 / Alonge Michael / On The Spot / 6 Comments »

A couple of days back, a reader of #CNO left a comment where he stated that Papa SBJO, the founder of this great church made a mistake marrying more than one wife and having large family.

The comment made by one Akinyele Emmanuel generated a lot of controversies but today he responded to all the people who lampooned him about his submission concerning the social life of the late sage, SBJO.

“It a great deal that i needed to reply to some comment about my comment that was posted some weeks ago.

Obviously i never knew that my comment would be publish on #CNO but for future purpose i believe that it will be on record that i replied to those comments, I am not trying to show monopoly of knowledge but I am writing this article the way i saw it in my own opinion.

The only man who never makes a mistake is the man who never tries anything, some atheists argue the mistake of man and we must think as philosopher.

When i raised the question of the mistake that Papa made in my own opinion, some people felt i was taking about his spiritual life but i was concerned about Papa social life.

Celestial is an indigenous Africa church that God gave the power to control the evil ones with the power of Holy Spirit but after the demise of Papa in 1985, a lot happened in the leadership circle of CCC, some leader that witnessed the era of Papa knew the type of man he was, people like Snr.  Evang. Otenigbagbe was a Colonel in the Nigeria army then, he was the one who mobilized army to Imeko that prevent Rev. Emmanuel Mobibiya from moving the corpse of Papa from Imeko to Port Novo; and that was why he never recognised the current pastor when he took over the leadership because Otenigbagbe felt that if he had allowed him to take the corpse from Nigeria then, CCC might have died a natural death by now.

I remember in 1996 or 1997 when celestial church joined the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) at Ire-akari, mandate was giving to the church which the leader never met since then and till now that is why you will never see us in the executive of CAN.

Another important issue was the ruling of judge Famakinwa in 1992 against Baba Bada and the Supreme Court judgement in 1997 showed that the church constitution must be rewritten and the Supreme Court judgment in 1997 (please make your finding in Punch Newspaper achieve) after the ruling the elder wrote a letter to Afe Babalola Chamber in early 2000 but nothing happened. Also at about three years ago, we downloaded another drafted constitution online that some people took time and energy to work on but some cabals in the church killed it. Papa Oshoffa led the group of clergymen to the foundation of Deeper Life Church in the 70’s and the same church took Celestial to court before the court ruled in favour CCC last year.

With all this, I am very convinced most of the people that following Papa are conscious of the leadership position in the church not the growth and development in the church, which papa knew in his heart, but if he had made the arrangement from his family to the church circle, we might not be where we are now.

With all this, families also played some major roles both positive and negative, and if it was two or three wives and 9 children, who knows, the sincere leader among the leaders might have provided some solutions.”

    Thanks to alagba akinyele and Edith oshofa, thou the typing might have come through annoyance but I love it, i gained from it.don’t ever say we need to solve the problem secretly nooo, it has become worldwide problem, that need worldwide attention and input to put things right.
    I will still bring back mine comment the previous time; Even if marrying many wives was a mistake and the root of the problem in the church then we that we are alive we are fool if that problem still continue for more than years after his depart.
    Both the biological children and spiritual children it concerns should put hand together and solve the problem before death come because I see it as number one stumbling block to the gate of heaven….God will help us.

    Thank you ma for the correction but it was an error about the name, but you raise some issue about the role some “people” played both in Pre and Post era of Papa.
    You knew that a committee was set up after Papa death and he ( Otenigbagbe) was member of the committee.( My fact from the Institute of Africa studies University of Ibadan). Ma, you knew that Otenigbagbe was founding member of Ire-akari parish before he went to build his church at Osolo way in the early 1990. So i was not talking during the life time of Papa or when he had an accident but after his death.
    Obviously, i was still a very very young boy when papa die so i was and will never join a group that you go after Papa will. Ma i want to refer you to the Book of Genesis when devil first visited adam, he (adam) told devil the position of God about the fruit of knowledge but the devil went to eve, wish she later convince her husband.
    For some member of the family to buy into the bad thought of some leader show that some member of the family never took a stand after Papa die.
    Ma, after 3 year ago, a woman who said she was Papa daughter but she is not attending CCC again granted an interview with The Punch newspaper, where she said different stories against yours. Please make your refer from( Punch newspaper). She said she was with Papa when he die in the hospital.
    Another issue in 2015, was when Evang Tosho acclaimed to be Pastor before he step down, the family of Papa released a Press statement to kick against having another Pastor from the family, which Snr.Evang Ebenezer oshoffa sign on behalf on the family, Ma i sent a massage to your inbox on facebook then, asking you some question which you never reply till date.
    Ma,we should not hide under the secede of the Holy spirit and fail not to accept mistakes, we are human begin and we are born to make mistake in life but the ability to accept and make correction is the major aspect. Thank God you knew that some families make mistake.
    Also, on this same group last week the editor post a picture of a man that said to be benjamin Oshoffa which the editor was sceptical about his identity; and the genesis of this argument was the meeting that was held in pastor house with the sibling of pastor, which i never thought you attended, from the report that we saw on this site, Snr.Evang Puis was not implementing the order of Pastor Emmanuel in term of financial up-keeping of his sibling; and i said if Papa had 2 or 3 wives and like 9 or 10 children, who know thing might have be under control.
    From the Picture of Elder’s that work with Papa during his life time, we only have 2 person lives now. We need documentation of fact not mouth information.
    Ma, i really love your article that you posted on facebook after Baba Maforikan demise, when you said he never left celestial as a uniform body the same way he met the church. Those are statement that kill argument, so write an autobiography about yourself and your chapter two will be on the history of celestial and Papa,say all that you know about your father spiritual,social and emotional life; does that will commend it will do and you will receive critics on it.
    Ma, i can remember vividly in 1998, when you came to the adult harvest that year when you gave the last prayer for the service and i believe you remember vividly how various parishes insert your name as the last female to give the closing prayer during harvest, but how many churches print your name like the 1990’s.
    Ma, work on documentation of fact that will help Papa work because of the unborn generation, people on this site are not up to one million, so are discussion are seen by few people and not all celestial members are on social media.
    Thanks

    Alagba Akinleye Emmanuel.
    I feel I must correct some misinformations about your submissions.

    1. It is Colonel Otenigbagbe not Otedigba you are referring to, I believe. Colonel Otenigbagbe happens to be one of the beloved spiritual children of our father. Colonel Otenigbagbe was incidentally one of the elders of the Church invited by Papa to worship with him at First Shadrack Hospital on Sunday September 8th 1985. As he was out of town he was represented by his wife.

    2. It wasn’t Colonel Otenigbagbe that mobilised soldiers to Imeko. While in hospital after the fatal accident ot 1st September 1985, Papa sent a message to another one of his beloved children Mr Chris Omeben to “give us many police men so that we shall not be trampled to death on the day of his journey home. The then Evangelist Chris Omeben did as he was asked and provided 350 Policemen for Papa’s last journey.

    3. While in hospital Papa also sent a message to our uncle Baba Olusegun Obasanjo who provided more security personnel for the last journey among so many other things he ( Baba Obasanjo) did before, during and after Papa’s last journey.

    3. All this while nobody knew about the plot to take Papa’s body to the Republic of Benin.

    4. It was neither the biological family of Papa nor our Senior brother Rev.Emmanuel Oshoffa that initiated the plot. It was you, the spiritual children of Papa, that initiated the plot and involved the family who unfortunately joined you.

    5. It wasn’t the family that plotted to change Papa’s will for the Church. It was you, the spiritual children, that connived to change Papa’s will by appointing leaders for the Church. Till you involved the family in the leadership of the Church by the advent of our senior brother which member of the biological family member was involved in the administration or the leadership of the Church?

    6. The fact remains that one way or the other we ( members of thi great Church ) have all contributed or unknowingly to the situation we are in today :
    -knowingly by appointing leaders by ourselves
    -unknowingly by supporting what we do not know.
    We have all sinned. We all need to go back to God to ask for forgiveness so that He will show us the way out of our predicament.

    7 With reference to Papa’s various submissions, sermons & interviews during his time with us, the fact that he was a polygamist before he was chosen by Almighty God, the fact that he had always obeyed THE VOICE OF HE WHO SENT HIM, I am bewildered that one of his children,Akinleye Emmanuel, is blaming his father’s social life for the ills that befell them, the ills that are the result of their handwork…………..

    Wether the world likes it or not Celestial Church of Christ will fulfill her mandate.

    ” Thus says the Lord : ” Stand in the ways and see, and ask for the old paths, where the good way is, and walk in it; then you will find rest for your souls. But they said ” We will not walk in it.”

    May God help us all.

    You are correct in your submission sir, that is what led us to where we are today. Now perpetrating fraud and forgery has become the other of the day while embezzlement also plays vital role by cabals. May Gpd rescue this church.Amen
