The Presiding Pastor of Champions’ Church, Ilorin, Emmanuel Oset, gave a statement on why he discontinued his relationship as a spiritual father to the Senior Pastor of Commonwealth of Zion Assembly, Biodun Fatoyinbo because he realised the embattled preacher has allegedly refused to change his ways.
Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo has been embroiled in controversy since June 2019 when Busola Dakolo, a celebrity photographer, accused him of raping her as a minor, about 20 years ago.
Pastor Emmanuel Oset, who spoke in an interview with Arise TV, said there is nothing the church can do for someone who is not ready to be helped and saved as he has been advised and counselled so many times.
Pastor Emmanuel Oset said,
“Our Lord Jesus Christ knew that Judas had become a thief but it wasn’t Jesus who said so, it was John who said so. Not because Jesus was weak, but because Jesus was hoping that this man would change”
“You always find in the scripture, the purpose of God is redemptive. Before God comes with judgment in any case, you will have seen that he would have tried to get through to the person, pray for the person and counsel the person. It is when His love has been rebuffed and rebuffed again that He comes with judgment That is God’s procedure” the man of God stated.
“God does not rule by any force, he rules by love.
“People have spoken. People spoke in 2013, but you can only help somebody who wants to be helped. If somebody doesn’t want to be helped, even God will not be able to help him, His hands will be tied in that regard.”
