MY THOUGHT ON PASTOR ADEBOYE'S THOUGHTS 4



Let's proceed!
7.”I don’t want to see any of my pastors looking like fellows from the training camps of Al-Qaeda", he said about beards.

MY THOUGHTS

Pastor Adeboye is very right in this angle. Now, he was addressing his pastors not YOU. Are you one of his pastors? So why are you angry? Every church has their own doctrine stipulated and affixed to them. If Deeper Life Ministries condemned their members from using earrings, why then does the world want to crucify Daddy G.O for telling his Pastors not to join the trending beard gang?

Besides, whats all the fuss about this beard gang stuff? Well, I am not here to criticize or appraise it. Whatever you believe in is left to you. I just believe that he has told his pastors what he wants. It is left for his pastors to accept or resign if it doesnt suit them.

And for those saying Jesus wore a beard according to the drawings of Him in Bible stories, is that really what you believe? Did God reveal that to you? Did you see Jesus in that? Dont say what you dont know. If you wanna keep a beard or you support it, FINE. If you dont support it, FINE. But dont crucify a Pastor who doesnt support it. We are all entitled to our individual belief.

In essence, whatever and however he runs his church should be of less concern to you. Why? Because you are in no position to judge. Only God has the ultimate right to judge. Remember the Bible says 'Touch not my anointed and do my prophet no harm'. Negative words against God's anointing is very dangerous. Rather than judging and waiting for the downfall of others, use that medium to win souls. He is winning souls into the kingdom, what are you doing? Judging? My dear, use that time to bear fruit!

 8. "The youths are young and they don’t know where they are going, but if you watch closely you will find that they don’t know where they are going.“They often look up to their fathers for direction but if a father himself does not know what he is doing then there something wrong."

MY THOUGHTS

Assuredly, he is very right here. Many youths today truly dont know where they are going. Most dont even know their God, their creator not to talk of the right direction to go in life. It is left for the elders to lead us in the right path. Now, if the elders are also moving like children, what then is left in this world?

He is simply advising that his pastors should be good leaders and should live an exemplary lifestyle like Jesus Christ so that the youths may walk in the right direction.

In essence, this short Bible verse should give us deeper insight into what Daddy is trying to say - 

 

Proverbs 14:12 King James Version (KJV)

12 There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death(destruction)

Tomorrow, we will discuss the last two things he said. Have a good evening!
