A Nigerian pastor and General Overseer of the Freedom Foundation Apostolic Revival International Ministry (FARIM) church, Prophet Sam Ojo has come under attack after he demanded a plot of land from a woman before her child can be delivered.
In the video posted online by Topaz Aya and a caption of her own, she said:
“END TIME CHURCH. PASTOR CURSING MEMBERS, ASKING FOR 100 Million, ASKING FOR LAND DOCUMENT FROM A POOR LADY, EVEN WISHING PEOPLE DEATH.
FOR ONCE, I NOW BELIEVE IN HYPNOSIS. THIS IS NOT NORMAL”
The Pastor continued;
‘IF I USE MY ANOINTING ON YOU AND YOU TAKE MY TITHE TO ANOTHER CHURCH, YOUR LIFE WILL BE DESTROYED.’ HE LATER TOLD THE WOMAN THAT HE DOESN’T WANT A LAND IN SANGO, OTA, OGUN STATE, BUT IN A HIGHBROW PLACE LIKE MAGODO.”
Mr Ojo also spoke about a contract-seeking politician he once prayed for.
He said after the contract clicked, the man went to pay N100m tithe in another church.
He revealed that he called the politician, who was also vying for a governorship post, and laid curse on him that no one in his family will ever become a governor.
This is a clear sign of the end time. Jesus told His disciples:
Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give” (Matthew 10:8).
He then addressed those saying he isn’t God, telling them to go and meet God if they know his address. The woman was only told to go and lay her hands on her child after promising to give Mr. Ojo a land.
Jesus Christ rightly warned His children about the deceptions of false prophets who shall lead many people astray. My Ojo’s claim of being a channel through which his members could meet God (because the members do not know the address of God) proves that his members have been misled against true biblical doctrine and the Christian faith that believes that anyone who believes has access to God through Jesus Christ.

The Presidency on Saturday said there was no truth in the news making the rounds that President Muhammadu Buhari is dead.
An online report had claimed that Buhari who began a medical vacation on Thursday died in a London hospital where he was receiving medical attention.
“The report is a hogwash,” the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, simply said when our correspondent contacted him.
Adesina also denied the report on his Twitter handle, praying for those behind it to repent.
“Best wishes to all who wish PMB well. As for those who carry evil rumours, may they receive grace to repent,” he report.
The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, also took to his Twitter handle to deny the report.
Shehu wrote, “He is alive and well. President Buhari is not magical. He cannot be holidaying in the UK and be in Germany, dead or alive at the same time.
“He is unlike a past President who was at Ota with Chief Obasanjo and attending the Trump inauguration in DC, being in two places at the same time.”
Founder of the Omega Fire Ministry, Apostle Johnson Suleiman has described popular Russian ponzi scheme, MMM as demonic.
Suleiman denounced the scheme which has attracted heated debates on the Nigerian social media scene in one of his sermons recently.
In a video he tells his congregation that any of them involved in the MMM ponzi scheme should come forward for deliverance.
The pastor said, “If you are involved in MMM, you are demonic,” “It is satanic, go and check the founder of mmm, he was a fraudster in America… defrauded people. And that’s what you are involving yourself in and you are a Christian, looking for easy way out.”
The scheme was setup by one Sergei Mavrodi, a Russian and a former deputy of the State Duma. According to reports, Sergei Mavrodi was in 2007 found guilty in a Russian court of defrauding 10,000 investors out of 110 million rubles ($4.3 million).
Pastor Chris Oyakhilome Says Masturbation Is Not A Sin
By Hosanna E.E. David
Over the years we have not seen a man of God defending masturbation publicly that it is not a sin like this. Pastor Chris Oyakhilome, the founder of the Believers’ LoveWorld Incorporated, (a.k.a Christ Embassy) openly defended masturbation as not being sinful during a telecast. Unfortunately, a viewer (Kwaku) who probably had issues with overcoming masturbation addiction asked him how he could overcome masturbation. Here is the reply of the man of God:
Pst Chris Oyakhilome
“THE REASON YOU ARE THINKING OF STOPPING IT (MASTURBATION) IS BECAUSE YOU THINK IT HAS BECOME A HABIT FOR YOU… MASTURBATION IS NOT MORE THAN A HABIT THAN ANY OTHER HABIT.
“SO ONCE YOU MAKE UP YOUR MIND THAT YOU WANT TO BREAK A PARTICULAR HABIT, YOU JUST DO IT, YOU MAKE UP YOUR MIND… IN FACT THE BEST WAY TO BREAK A HABIT IS TO REPLACE IT WITH ANOTHER HABIT. THERE IS ONE THING I WOULD LIKE TO BRING TO YOUR MIND THAT MAY BE OF HELP TO YOU BECAUSE THE REASON YOU ARE THINKING OF STOPPING THIS IS BECAUSE OF WHAT YOU THINK IT IS.
NO MATTER HOW WRONG YOU THINK THIS IS IN YOUR MIND, GET THIS STRAIGHT, IN ITSELF, IT IS NOT A SIN AGAINST GOD,” EMPHASISING THAT AS A RESULT OF THIS BELIEF THAT IT IS A SIN, SATAN USED IT TO OPPRESS PEOPLE OF GOD “MAKING THEM FEEL INEFFECTIVE AND INEFFICIENT IN THE THINGS OF GOD.”
To say the statement was met with mixed reactions from the public would be doing far more than putting it lightly, with some people rejoicing over the fact they could now cross one thing off their list of wrongdoings and with others insisting it was a sin and wondering how the man of God could dare utter such a statement.
Pastor Chris has however, stood by his words, insisting that it is, in fact, not a sin.
“Without imagination, there is no masturbation” he read out, from a letter by a viewer who still did not understand how it could possibly not be a sinful act.
“I don’t think it’s a question of what do I say” Pastor Chris reacted. “It’s what does the word say”.
“The first thing I would like to ask is, what is masturbation in the first place?” he then asks viewers. “Secondly, do you practice it?”

The loose confederation of churches affiliated with the worldwide Anglican communion is experiencing growing tensions over the issue of homosexuality, with the U.S. Episcopalian church tugging toward the liberal embrace of all things LGBT and the African churches struggling to maintain a more Biblically based sexual morality.
The Anglican Church of Nigeria has announced it will boycott the next international meeting of Church leaders over the matter, and is now requesting “special status” in the worldwide church to allow it to faithfully preserve its position on homosexuality.
In a forceful statement, the Nigerian Anglican primate, Archbishop Nicholas Okoh, said that the Anglican communion seems to be tilting toward a non-biblical understanding of homosexuality, marginalizing those with an orthodox, biblical view of human sexuality.
Traditional Anglicans like the Nigerian Church, he said, “are walking into a well-rehearsed scheme to gradually apply persuasion, subtle blackmail, coercion on any group still standing with the Scriptural Provision as we know it, to join the straight jacket of the revisionists and be politically correct.”
Archbishop Okoh said his province will shun next month’s Anglican Consultative Council meeting in Lusaka, Zambia over the way the worldwide church has handled the wayward Episcopal Church in America, which he described as a “toxic relationship.”
At a meeting of Anglican Primates in January of this year, it was decided that for a period of three years The Episcopal Church (TEC) should not be appointed or elected to an internal standing committee and will not take part in decision making on any issues pertaining to doctrine or policy. The measure was intended as a sanction over TEC’s approval of gay marriage and consecration of openly gay bishops.
Those sanctions proved to be “hollow,” Okoh said, and disapproval shifted toward those still embracing traditional beliefs regarding sexuality. Okoh said that during the Canterbury meeting, those who hold the orthodox view of human sexuality and marriage were “denounced as ‘homophobic,’” underscoring that “we were in the wrong place,” he said.
Okoh’s impression was that the Anglican authorities thought they were exercising patience in order to gradually persuade the “scripture-believers” to embrace “homosexual doctrine,” something he says they will never do.
In his statement, Okoh reminds readers that Nigeria was one of the provinces that protested against the consecration of the gay American bishop Gene Robinson, that boycotted the 2008 Lambeth Conference and helped set up the conservative Global Anglican Future Conference in Jerusalem that same year.
As a result, Okoh has requested “special status” for the Provinces who will never “embrace the sexual culture being promoted by some Provinces of the Church over and against the Bible.”
He compared the idea of special status to the relationship between the United Kingdom and the European Union, where total union is impossible, but some degree of cooperation is deemed useful.
The Anglican church claims some 85 million members worldwide and is divided into 38 provinces. Only eight of these are favorable to changing doctrine on marriage to allow for same-sex unions, namely, the U.S., Canada, Scotland, Wales, New Zealand, South India, South Africa and Brazil.
STATEMENT BY THE MOST REV’D NICHOLAS D. OKOH, MA, Fss, Mss, LLD
Archbishop, Metropolitan and Primate of All Nigeria. Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion) and Deputy Chair of the GAFCON Primates Council
THE CHURCH OF NIGERIA: OUR PERSPECTIVE
The Church of Nigeria was one of the Provinces that protested against the consecration of Gene Robinson (an active homosexual clergyman in New Hampshire), by The Episcopal Church USA, and the promulgation of a liturgy for blessing of same sex union; boycotted the Lambeth Conference 2008, and organized the Global Anglican Future Conference (GAFCON 2008), in Jerusalem. A remarkable legacy of that conference is the Jerusalem Statement and Declaration.
Since then, the theological position of the Church of Nigeria on the human sexuality palaver raging in the Anglican Communion is by no means ambiguous. In pursuance of its position, it has had to amend its constitution to emphasize the basis of our relationship with any other Province or church namely:
The Church of Nigeria shall be in full communion with all Anglican Churches, Dioceses and Provinces that hold and maintain the Historic Faith, Doctrine, Sacrament and Discipline of the one Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church as the Lord has commanded in His holy word and as the same are received as taught in the Book of Common Prayer and the Ordinal of 1662 and in the Thirty-Nine Articles of Religion.
In other words, the amendment places emphasis on the “Historic Faith, Doctrine, Sacrament and The word of God rather than, and instead of, historical institutions. It was intended to save the Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion) from derailment in the context of challenges engendered by theological ambivalence such as the present human sexuality controversy illustrates.
In further pursuance of that same amendment, the Church of Nigeria resolved to break communion with The Episcopal Church (TEC) and the Anglican Church of Canada (not on account of redefinition), but on the practice, promotion and advocacy of homosexuality and its allied practices.
As part of the stance of the Global Anglican Future Conference (GAFCON), it resolved not to attend any future conference or meeting where the above named two Provinces will sit and participate in discussion.However, the January 2016 Primates meeting in Canterbury was considered an exception. Thus, the GAFCON and Global South resolved to attend.
In spite of the hollow restrictions placed on The Episcopal Church, the Presiding Bishop of TEC and the Chairman of the Anglican Consultative Council have avowed that the Primates had no authority to take that decision. During the Canterbury meeting itself, the way and manner in which those who hold the orthodox view of human sexuality and marriage were spoken of by the authorities, and denounced as “homophobic”, left no one in doubt that we were in the wrong place. In fact, the authorities believe that patience was being exercised to enable the communion to bring up the scripture-believers gradually to embrace the homosexual doctrine. Thus, the Anglican Communion’s journey is very uncertain for the orthodox. They are walking into a well-rehearsed scheme to gradually apply persuasion, subtle blackmail, coercion on any group still standing with the Scriptural Provision as we know it, to join the straight jacket of the revisionists and be politically correct. Somehow, they are succeeding!
At this point we find great wisdom in the attitude of the British Government in relation to the European Union, It has not joined the Euro Zone; it did not join the Schengen conglomerate. Now the British Prime Minister is asking for a “Special Status” in the European Union for the United Kingdom.
The Anglican Communion should begin to think in that direction for those Provinces that may never, for obvious reasons, embrace the sexual culture being promoted by some Provinces of the Church over and against the Bible as we received it. We need a “Special Status”.
In summary, as long as we are now candidates for whom every opportunity in the Anglican Communion should be explored to gradually teach us to embrace the new sex culture, it will be unwise to deliberately walk into a well-prepared camp of recruitment, blackmail, indoctrination and toxic relationship.
Therefore, we regret our inability to attend the Anglican Consultative Council meeting in Lusaka, Zambia.
We continue to pray for God’s Church to return to the Holy Bible, for its faith and practice.

According to CNN, Pope Francis said Sunday that Christians owe apologies to gays and others who have been offended or exploited by the church, remarks that some Catholics hailed as a breakthrough in the church’s tone toward homosexuality.
“I repeat what the Catechism of the Catholic Church says: that they must not be discriminated against, that they must be respected and accompanied pastorally,” Francis said at a press conference aboard the papal plane returning from Armenia.
“The Church must ask forgiveness for not behaving many times — when I say the Church, I mean Christians! The Church is holy, we are sinners!”
As he often does during unscripted moments — particularly papal news conferences — the Pope spoke expansively, saying the church should seek forgiveness for a number of historical slights committed in its name.
“I believe that the church not only should apologize to the person who is gay whom it has offended,” he added, “but has to apologize to the poor, to exploited women, to children exploited for labor; it has to ask forgiveness for having blessed many weapons.”
The Rev. James Martin, a Jesuit priest and editor at large of America magazine, called the Pope’s apology to gays and lesbians “a groundbreaking moment.”
“While St. John Paul II apologized to several groups in 2000 — the Jewish people, indigenous peoples, immigrants and women, among them — no pope has ever come close to apologizing to the LGBT community. And the Pope is correct of course. First, because forgiveness is an essential part of the Christian life. And second, because no group feels more marginalized in the church today than LGBT people.”
The Pope’s comments came in response to a question about a German Cardinal who said the Catholic Church should apologize for being “very negative” about gays. The Pope was also asked whether Christians bear some blame for hatred toward the LGBT community, as horrifically demonstrated in the Orlando massacre at a gay night club that killed 49 people on June 12.
Repeating the teaching of the Catechism of the Catholic Church about respecting and not discriminating against gays, Pope Francis said that one could condemn certain behavior.
“One can condemn, but not for theological reasons, but for reasons of political behavior…Certain manifestations are a bit too offensive for others, no?
“But these are things that have nothing to do with the problem. The problem is a person that has a condition, that has good will and who seeks God, who are we to judge? And we must accompany them well.”
Francis first uttered that rhetorical question — Who am I to judge gay people? — in 2013, also during a news conference on the papal plane. His comments were hailed as a breakthrough for a church that has historically condemned homosexuality, often in harsh terms. Francis has not changed church doctrine that calls homosexual acts sinful, but he has shown a more merciful approach to people on the margins, including gays and lesbians.
Francis DeBernardo, executive director of New Ways Ministry, a Catholic gay rights group, called the Pope’s remarks “an immense blessing of healing.”
“No pope has said more welcoming words to LGBT people than when Pope Francis today offered his recommendation that the Church — indeed all Christians — should apologize for the harm religious traditions have caused to LGBT people. The pope’s statement was simple, yet powerful, and it fell from his lips so easily.”
As is often the case, the Pope’s press conference encompassed a number of controversial questions. Here are the Pope’s answers about Brexit, former Pope Benedict XVI and why he used the word “genocide” to describe the murder of more than 1 million Armenians in the early 20th century.
An incident which can aptly be tagged as most outrageous happened in the north-central state of Plateau, Nigeria. In a remote and sleepy hamlet of Kanke local government, a little girl of Five was found to be pregnant.
According to the child’s parents, the perpetrator of the bizarre act is not known but the police has begun an inquiry with the view to fathom the identity of the mystery man or men behind the heinous crime. Speaking further, the Father of the girl told newsmen that until few months ago, the poor child began to complain of excruciating pains in her groin which they didn’t pay commensurate attention to. After a while, they noticed that her breasts were developing, all of which they attributed to early adolescence precocity. Their fears were confirmed after tests were carried out on her when they noticed her protuberant tummy. The pregnancy test came back with a positive verdict. The locals and family of the girl are still in a state of shock which is quite rational considering the girl’s age and biological placing. We contrived to get a photo of the victim and we present it to you for your own perusal and appraisal… A similar incident had happened in a small Peruvian village in 1939, Lina Medina, also 5 years who have birth to a healthy 6pound baby
