If all pastors claim to serve a God, why are they having different prophesies . That is to say they are not serving one God . Oyedepo is not representing the Christian populace but himself.

At least for few monthse Bishop Oyedepo's sermon will no longer have the word ''Fulani Herdsmen".
Let somebody shout Halleluyah!

I saw Oyedepo in a Fulani styled attire smiling and grinning from ear to ear to meet with a “non Fulani" atiku after all his diatribe against a fulani Buhari. These men are shameless and it is the ones who listens to them that I pity the most. https://t.co/tMvl6AsZ1W

I like Pastor Oyedepo cause you know where he stands in political matters. Not pretentious about what he believes in at all. I like that. That’s the kind of pastor I’d listen to. Not a dilly dallying pastor that plays to the gallery.
