Man of God not God of man

Hey people,how have you all been? It feels good to assume you're as awesome as i am and that life just keeps getting beautiful for you as it is getting for me.I know it's been a while since i last appeared here,and the reason is simple,LAZINESS.I won't even try to blame this one on work because work isn't so stressful these few days.Or maybe i have just lost my blogging mojo.Oh well! *Kanye shrug*

For those who are twitter-heads,you should have at one point or the other come across the Ese Walter and Pastor Fatoyinbo's story.Various perspectives came,as usual.Some reasonable,some obnoxious and some simply biased.But i wasn't surprised when i read reactions trailing the story.I didn't bother commenting on the issue.However,i want to address something else,but closely related and somehow,indirectly address the issue.

Any story that concerns 'pastors' in Nigeria always arouse intense talks and bashing.Certainly,people have their reasons for all that and i'm not here to judge.However,i want to point something out here.Pastors/Reverends/Evangelists/Bishops are MEN! They are human beings who were born just as we were born.They didn't fall from the sky,thus are not infallible.They are not more special than you and I,they only have titles.As far as God is concerned,if you're born again and live a life considered right in the sight of God,you are very special to Him.This means that everything the bible says about those that love God also applies to you.When the bible said "Touch no my annointed and do my prophet to harm",it wasn't talking about 'pastors' alone.It was referring,also,to everyone who is living right in God sight.Pastors enjoy grace,mercy,favor,touch-not covering,healing,miracles,blessings etc,but you also are entitled to equal measure of these things (even better if you want).Before Jesus said in John 14 verse 12  "Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father."
.If you analyze that passage very well,you'd see that Jesus didn't mention 'Pastor' or any title,he generalized.Do you know why? It's because we are equal in the sight of God.Humans kill themselves over titles and this has given some people the impression that those with titles are better than them.THEY ARE NOT!!! Whatever your pastor can do,you can do and even better if you dare to.The only reason why men of God do the works they do is because they devote their time to studying the word of God,this gives them an edge,THAT IS ALL! Your pastor isn't God.He is a god,but so are you.So if you ever think because he's a pastor he shouldn't err,you should know you're the one misleading yourself.Failure to see that your pastor is a man is the reason you tend to worship him and that is your fault.The bible is commonplace and not for pastors alone.Revelation isn't for pastors alone,if you want it,you'd get it.

Furthermore,haven established the fact that pastors are men,i'd like to state here,in my understanding,that Ese Walter wasn't abused.We only heard one side of the story though,but if that side were true,if there's any issue of abuse there,it's not 'abuse of a person' but 'an office' (Pastor Fatoyinbo's).Have a pleasant day!

    1. There are different ways that one can be abused. She never said she was sexually abused because of course, sex was consensual, she only said her mind was abused because she had thought she had touched God’s anointed by submitting my body to be used. Little did she know all the time her mind and thoughts were manipulated by words such as touch not my annointed so the abuse here is the mind game was subjected to. Thanks my oga @ d top for opening our eyes to see that we are all entitled to enjoying the same grace, mercy, miracles and blessings that our pastors are entitled to in equal measures if only we want to and open our hearts to receiving it.

    2. "she only said her mind was abused because she had thought she had touched God’s anointed by submitting my body to be used. Little did she know all the time her mind and thoughts were manipulated by words such as touch not my annointed so the abuse here is the MIND GAME was subjected to." If she said the mind game was the reason she felt she was abuse,then there still is something wrong.Before she decided she wanted to go to the HOTEL ROOM of her PASTOR and SITTING on his LAPS and subsequently KISSING him and ending up UNDER THE SHEETS with him,it should have crossed her mind that a game had started.So,it is what she said it was,A GAME.Nobody was abused,i maintain.

  4. lol I really do not know what the story is, I am sometimes lost with Nigerian news. however, I really enjoyed reading your article. In NigeriA, It feels like a lot of people put their pastors in place of God and that's just err....

  5. This makes a whole lot of sense. We're all equal in the eyes of God and have same grace,pastors have.

    Interesting read!

  6. It was an abuse of office and she is the victim. Some people fall in love with scammers and wire them thousands of dollars till they scrape their account, does that make them less of a victim? The scammer is still a dishonest, cheating scammer, just like Pastor B is an abuser of his office, his marriage, and gullible ladies like Ese Walter.

    2. @Myne I still maintain she wasn't abused.Reason is because she knew what she wanted to do was wrong,but went ahead and did it anyway.At what point did that turn into an abuse?
