A sermon by the General Superintendent of the Deeper Christian Life Ministry, Pastor William Kumuyi, on Sunday is generating mixed reactions on social media.

Kumuyi, in the sermon titled “The Believers’ Preservation Until the Day of Visitation” which was delivered at the church’s headquarters, said that Christians must be Christ-like in character, conduct and conversations.

According to Punch, Kumuyi read from 1st Peter 2: 11-25, urging Christians to reflect Christ in the civil society, adding the government derives their authority from God.

“Don’t attack the President of the country, whether in words or in the newspapers or through Internet. Honour kings; don’t disrespect or dishonour the governors. Don’t disrespect leaders of the community and leaders in the church. If we are to honour the governors in the states, how much more the pastors!” Kumuyi was quoted as saying.

Watch the sermon below:

Femi Fani-Kayode, Shehu Sani, and Reno Omokri have criticised the cleric for his message.

Sani tweeted: Pastor Kumuyi is a respectable and responsible man of God, I like him;But he should allow people to express their views about their leaders and speak truth to power;that is their only shield of defending democracy and propelling the wheel of freedom and justice.

Fani-Kayode said: “‘Don’t attack Buhari’- Kumuyi. God deliver us from shepherds that slaughter the sheep,that defend the cruel,that support injustice,that love the wicked,that serve the tyrant,that despise the weak,that enslave the poor and that worship genocidal maniacs and sociopathic butchers.”

Omokri wrote on Twitter: “Dear Pastor Kumuyi, I PRAISE Buhari if he does right. I DEFEND him if he is WRONGLY ATTACKED. I CONSTRUCTIVELY CORRECT him when he is wrong. Jesus CRITICIZED King Herod (Luke 13:32). Paul CORRECTED Peter (Galatians 2:11). They are my example.”

Nigerians on social media are divided on the Pastor’s sermon. See reactions below:

    My own is , i hope Mr kumuyi also told President buhari he needs to step up his works to better our nation because Nigerians voted him to serve right. But if Mr kumuyi didn’t, then this is hypocrisy at it best

    As a servant of God, what Pastor Kumuyi said the right perfectly the right thing. Whether President Buhari is a good or bad president does not matter, just respect him and don’t talk rubbish and undermine him regardless of if you voted for him or not. If the LORD Jesus Christ has decided he is the one to rule Nigeria, respect that decision. A country deserves the leader they get, and how you handle this one will determine how the Almighty God will bless you with the next one. If you want a good leader who will love and work for his people, cherish the one you now have and assist him in any way you can to do a good job, this is the same for Governors, Senators, Chairman/Chairlady, etc. leaders of any capacity.

    “Servants, submit yourselves to your masters with all respect, not only to those who are good and gentle, but even to those who are unreasonable.” – 1 Peter 2:18

    Nuff said.
