Deep Christian Life General Superintendent Pastor William Kumuyi explained that his ministry includes the use of television, radio, social media and other technological inventions to spread the gospel.
The octogenarian preacher lamented that “evil people” are using technology to advance their plans, so the church cannot continue to “sleep” but must “wake up” and use the same technology to advance its plans, love of the gospel.
The 80-year-old church leader made the announcement in a video uploaded via Facebook by the Ekiti State Church Branch on Sunday.
In the five-minute, 16-second video, Kumuyi expressed regret that the church has been slow to use technology tools.
“Why are you late, why are you the last one to use all these things that people use to make the world worse, we will rise.
“Everything that is available to people who do evil, we will take away from them and use it to spread the gospel. Let your NO change to YES,” he said.
Previously, Kumuyi, whose church members were known to hate television and other gadgets, said: “People are given new methods and they do evil. These are the last days and the evil is getting worse because people are going beyond using their natural powers, natural technology, they are using phones, they are using media, they are using all these connections, Zoom and all these things to expand their harm.
“If these messengers of Satan are using modern technology and developing, what about you? You will use those available things; they are available not only to messengers who do evil, but also to people who do good. You will use them.
“The church is asleep. When radio came out a few years ago, people didn’t understand how voices could come out of radio, and so the church at the time said, “No, we can’t use radio, there’s something magical, demonic about it.” is it a voice coming from a simple device? The church said no. Then the peoples of the world began to use the radio. Then the church woke up.
“When they turned on the TV, someone played a drama somewhere, they saw it on the screen, and then the church said: “This is evil, these are the last days, look at them, they put images on the screen and everything they do somewhere anything.” And the church said, “No, we won’t use that,” but later they woke up and now they’re using TV.
“But now the church is waking up and we see that this thing (technology) is for spreading the gospel because the word of God is spreading everywhere. We will be wiser than the nations of the world. The Lord will wake us up.
Kumuyi, who was criticized last September for using a private jet and a limousine for the Abuja crusade, said: “Some people when the plane arrived said, ‘We’re not going to use the plane,’ and they rode it. horses. The bike came and they said. “God gave us legs, and if he gave us legs, why would we use bicycles?
“Motorcycles arrived, cars arrived, and when the plane arrived, they said: “God gave us the land; He didn’t give us a seat, and that’s why all these people using the plane are worldly people going to hell.” I tell you what they said then, but now all these people, the plane has silenced them, and now they can go anywhere.
