Why corrupt politicians are welcomed in church – Cleric
Daud Olatunji, Abeokuta
President of Pentecostal Sanctuary Bible Ministries, Prophet Sunday Iyunade is of the opinion that those convicted of corruption should be welcomed into the church.
Speaking recently at a Press conference to herald the church’s 21st anniversary/15th convention in Ijebu-Ode, the cleric described the church as the only place where ex-convicts could be refined by the word of God.
“A lot of you have been criticising the Church for accepting corrupt leaders. Where else will they hear the truth if not in the Church?
“It is only the religious bodies that can give them a course to feel guilty of whatever crime they have comitted. They may pay offerings, tithes and even do thanksgiving, they will surely be told the truth they need to hear,” he argued.
Prophet Sunday said: “We need to pray for political stability as there will be threats to democracy. We need to seriously pray for our governments.”
While highlighting the shortcomings of the government, the prophet lamented that the Treasury Single Account (TSA) has killed the Nigerian economy.
