TheGeneral Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, says he never asked christians to buy guns, stating that some media platforms had misquoted him.

He stated that they(christians) don’t need guns but they should get jaw bones of cows instead of guns, making reference to Samson in the Holy Bible who did exploits with jawbone of an ass.

Pastor Adeboye said this at Mount Carmel while delivering his message titled ‘Meant for the top’, in the church’s monthly thanksgiving service on Sunday monitored by NOTM.

The reverred cleric was clarifying an earlier message at the Friday’s monthly Holy Ghost service where he was quoted to have asked christians to buy guns for self defence, especially the churches during service.

He said, “I am ministering from Mount Carmel. And God is reaching you with fire.

“Fire of God must fall and reach every family. God will be answering your prayers with fire.

“Nothing happens in this world without God. Until your time comes no one can kill you.

Don’t listen to those saying don’t go to church, that something will happen.

“If they come they will meet God at the gate.

“I never told any Christian to go and buy guns.

Don’t go and buy guns. It is difficult to get permission to get guns. You don’t need permission to buy the jawbone of a cow.

Samson won a victory with jawbone of an ass.

“Don’t buy guns, we don’t want to kill anyone. We just don’t want unwanted visitors to come to our church.

Recall that  on Sunday June 5, 2022, gunmen attacked a Catholic church in Owo, Ondo State during mass killing no fewer than 40 worshippers.

In his sermon, Pastor Adeboye while outlining what christans who want to get to the top and stay there must do, he said they must be diligent, must be guided by the spirit of God and they must be pure.
