– “Don’t Disrespect Government” – Pastor William Kumuyi tells Christians
Pastor William Folorunso Kumuyi, the founder and General Superintendent of the Deeper Christian Life Ministry says true believers have no business insulting those in power because they’re not delivering electoral promises.
The cleric made this statement via his social media on Sunday, while responding to a mandate from former Vice Chancellor of Ajayi Crowther University, Professor Dapo Asaju at a public forum in Lagos, explaining that it is in our right has believers to agitate for better conditions when elected officials fail on their campaign promises, but we should do so in obedience to God.
In the Facebook thread, Kumuyi admitted the shortcomings of the government in power.
He said, “At Deeper Christian Life Ministry, we are far more aware of this existential crossroads than many perceive. We present the Word of God as delivered in the Holy Bible, alright.
But we warn that in the long run, the Lord is interested in a fusion of obedience to His Word and relating amicably with fellow human beings, regardless of class, colour, caste (religion) or culture.
“We teach that if you’re a genuine believer in Christ, you wouldn’t hate your neighbour. Nor would you disdain those in power because they appear not to be delivering on electoral pledges such that you would go on the rampage, destroying government property or pillaging the public till we teach a linear life of Christian walk.”

While illuminating further, he said;
“You can’t be a saint on Sunday and a monster on Monday. Needless to say, God recognizes the dual nature He has clothed us with, physical body and soul.
“Both need to be fed proportionally. The inner soul requires the Word, while the external body needs material fulfillments through food, shelter, healing, job, joy, justice etc. The Creator hasn’t annulled that order.
“He expects the state to cater for the body while He saddles the Church with providing for the inner being. None is mutually independent of the other.
“Societies run into straits, setbacks and storms when they neglect this arrangement,” he added.
