TB Joshua, MURIC commiserate with Adeboye over son’s death
Founder of The Synagogue, Church of All Nations, Prophet T.B. Joshua and Director of the Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC), Prof. Ishaq Akintola, have joined other well-meaning Nigerians to commiserate with the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye and members of the church over the sudden death of Pastor Dare Adeboye, who died last Tuesday at the age of 42.
In his condolence message, Prophet Joshua said: “God does not need our permission; God’s time is the best.” In a live service broadcast on Emmanuel Television last Friday, the televangelist, in his prayer, stated, “It is not how long we live that matters but how well we live.” He also added: “Pray that the Holy Spirit, our Comforter, will strengthen the family and the ministry. Let us observe a moment of silence in remembrance of Pastor Dare Adeboye.”
The Islamic human rights organisation, in a statement, described the death of Dare Adeboye as a test of faith for his father and his followers. The statement, which was signed by MURIC’s Director, Professor Ishaq Akintola, reads: “We are deeply touched by the death of Pastor Enoch Adeboye’s son, Dare Adeboye, at 42. But we know that it will pass. This is a trial to test the faith of Pastor Adeboye, his family members and his followers. We must be strong in tribulation. ..”
We must not be shaken because it is written that we may have to suffer various trials (I Peter 1:6).” The statement further added: “MURIC commiserates with Pastor Enoch Adeboye, his family and the entire members of the Redeemed Church. May Allah give them the strength to bear the loss.”
