His children can school in USA while the folks in his congregation have their children in shanties, called schools.

Not that it's wrong for church leaders to live well and take care of their children, but it's rank hypocrisy when the same leaders preach at their folks to be modest, pay their tithes and offerings. You don't see them criticise the government for neglecting the masses; what do they do? the go to Aso rock and flatter them. Some even say Obasanjo is born again; born again my arse.

I need to add this because of Mr Larry's comment, not to defend Pastor Kumuyi, but to put you right. If you ever move close to the pastor/observe him closely, you'll know he's an enbodiment of grace, humility and God's fear.
He not only teach about tithes but on ALL THERE IS IN THE BIBLE.

And the bible says a labourer is worthy of his hire. Pastor kumuyi forsook a bright career as a first class honours holder in mathematics.
He's been through thick and thin, selling his car and other valuables to print tracts and go around Africa preaching the gospel. he's endured inclement and stormy weather lifting up the banner of righteousness in life and ministry.

Even with the success and expansion in Deeper life today, the pastor does not have any personal landed property.should he die today, everything is in Deeper Life's name.
What on earth is wrong in his children schooling in America? Of course these same kids were in Unilag but people started trailing them. Dont they deserve safety? dont they deserve the best? Afterall, their parents have given their best for God.

And one more thing, there are a lot of VERY RICH PEOPLE IN DEEPER LIFE. They may not be assertive or flamboyant with their wealth because of what they are.They also have their kids in USA, UK,etc. AND THEY STILL PAY THEIR TITHES.There's no community of humans, even in the developed states of the world, where there are no below average people

Therefore instead of attacking pastor Kumuyi, lets learn from his virtues and that of the departed wife. When it comes to our turn to die, shall we hear God's "well done" or "depart from me...ye workers of iniquity(sinfulness)"

THANKS FOR YOUR GOOD JOB MR FOLOWOSELE.

I was deeper life once, and I am surprised that WFK has his two sons studying in the USA. It goes everything that the church (once) stood for. Not to mention that his wife's funeral was attended by two state governors and a one time head of state.

Thank you very much Funmi for enlightening Larry on the supposed brilliant position the Man of God's life style.Isnt the labourer worthy of his wages? May the Lord forgive him (Larry) of the careless statements he made of the man of God.......Jesus even said "poor shall always be among you" while Jesus was on the face of the earth, werent there poor people?

MAY God bless you funmi. He's been through thick and thin, selling his car and other valuables to print tracts and go around Africa preaching the gospel. he's endured inclement and stormy weather lifting up the banner of righteousness in life and ministry.
pastor WF KUMUYI and his children deserve the best as for me if it was possible let them to go to SPACE and read, people like larry are judases who say in the book of john 12 vs 5, why wasn"t this perfume sold and the money given to the poor? it was worth a year"s wages. he do not say this because he cared about the poor but because he was a thief as keeper of the money bag, he used to help himself to what was put into it. in vs 8 jesus replied we will always have the poor among us.infact, the worst mistake judas make is that he never repented from all this sin, so larry you need repentance,i came from muslem home i thank God am a christian , i have attended many churches but never seen where the truth is been preach in bible, like deeper life. pastor WF KUMUYI he's an enbodiment of grace, humility and God's fear.
He not only teach about tithes but on ALL THERE IS IN THE BIBLE.Pastor Kumuyi has surely paid his dues in ministry and he really deserves the very best.May GOD forgive this Larry of a guy... AMEN.

LARRY! I PRAY THAT GOD WILL FORGIVE YOU. PLEASE YOU DO GOOD TO REALIZE YOUR MISTAKE AND WRONG COMMENT. PLEASE I URGE YOU TO AMEND YOUR WAYS, REPENT OF YOUR SINS AND ACCEPT JESUS INTO YOUR HEART. I BELIEVE IF THE GRACE OF GOD IS IN YOUR LIFE, YOU WILL NOT TALK CARELESSLY.

WITH ALL SINCERITY AND THE HUMILITY IN THE LIFE OF PASTOR KUMUYI, LABOURING FOR THE MOST HIGH GOD AND FOR THE SALVATION OF MEN TO THE KINGDOM OF GOD, FOR HIS CHILDREN TO SCHOOL ABROAD, HE DESERVES IT 100%. I AM ONCE A MUSLIM, BUT THE GRACE OF GOD; THROUGH HIS LABOUR IN PREACHING THE GOOD NEWS TO ALL MEN AM SAVED TODAY. PRAISE THY LORD.

Kenedy247 said...

am Kenny. And all comments now diverted to @larry. Funmi and co have said it all. If DeeperLife were to own a school like other churches have done, am sure they (deeperlife) who have rather prefer to have made it free or given a 70percent subsidy. Kumuyi is funding his children with his own salary and nt d church's money because, he himself pays tithe. Please Larry, i beg on you to beg for forgiveness as my other collegues have rightly said.
