They say that a leader should set a good example, and if our church’s leadership isn’t doing that, the downlines won’t either. Not a curse at all.
If the church’s present leader and his siblings are using their actions and responses to church-related problems to assert family ownership of Celestial Church, then it won’t come as a surprise if we see similar behaviour at a lower level of the church.
It might surprise you that the same way Oshoffa’s children are claiming ownership of the CCC through their acts and behaviours is the same way the landlord shepherds are willing their parishes to their children and claim ownership of them.
Especially if the landlord shepherd passes into glory, the eldest son or whoever among the sons is interested would accept the call to become the parish’s shepherd regardless of their salvation or stand with God.
The mentality is that the son who wishes to become the shepherd of the parish would learn how to conduct one or two spiritual works and learn more as time progresses, and then it is assumed they are good to go.
Let me shock you: many of them are not born again, but they pretend to be one just to gain ownership of the church and fool some elders of the parish. No wonder there are many ungodly acts flogging some of our parishes. It is because the apex body too has displayed such an ugly act.
There was a brother I knew well to be a chronic womanizer, a drunkard, and a worldly song singer who suddenly told us that he wants to become a shepherd in his father’s pariah due to his father’s health issues, which would be relocating to his village.
The next thing I saw was his picture as a shepherd preaching on a Sunday like that. I am not saying he might not have eventually become born again, but the needful needs to be done first before taking up a calling. This is one of many we have witnessed in CCC.
God owns Celestial Church of Christ, not anybody or family inheritance. God might use one’s father to establish a church to properly propagate God’s work per mercy received, but that does not mean the church has become a family inheritance.
I will repeat it anywhere that it is only a daft child of Papa SBJ Oshoffa, a black sheep of the family and evil genius in that household that will lay claim to the church as their father’s.
Any of the Oshoffas who tries to claim such should be told to move to the Republic of Benin where their daddy started the church and not here. But they won’t dare claim such rights over there because they know they have nothing over there.
If they want to claim ownership of the church, the Badas, the Ajalenkokos, the Oyefesos, and the Owodunnis equally have the right to claim it. I hope the devil using some of these children of Papa will not make them destroy the good work Papa laid down, if they continue to think in that direction. A word, they say, is enough for the wise.
In a sane setting, ascending to the throne should be a very rigorous process where there is a requirement for both physical and spiritual qualifications before anybody can claim to be a shepherd, and it should not be an overnight decision or right.
