Kumuyi urges church not to tamper with ancient landmarks
The General Superintendent, Deeper Life Bible Church, Pastor William Folorunsho Kumuyi has called on the Church to ensure that the gospel is disseminated as it was received and not to remove ancient landmarks.He asserted that there was no way any man could embellish the Word of God without getting same distorted, which would be a departure from the real message and meaning.
During his ministration at the just concluded four-day National December Retreat, held at the Deeper Life Conference Centre, Lagos-Ibadan Expressway with the theme: “Experience the dawn of a new beginning,” Kumuyi reminded church members that Jesus came to establish both the ministers and congregation, urging them to be wary of manipulating the word of God to suit their purpose.
“Remove not the ancient landmark, which their fathers have set.“My son, fear thou the LORD and the king and meddle not with them that are given to change,” he quoted from the scriptures.
The Cleric assured that the Word of God is sacrosanct and cannot be manipulated, and that God is always interested in those contributing to building the Church, just as He told Moses that he should ensure he built the tabernacle in the wilderness according to the “pattern” he was shown on the mount.He disclosed that the End Time is here, and people would like to go their own way with the belief that they are still carrying out the great commission, when in reality, they are distorting the Word of God and have consequently departed from the laid down foundation.
Kumuyi, who delivered his message under three sub-headings such as ‘The Foundation and doctrine of Master’s landmarks’; ‘the falsehood and dangers of modern days liars’ and the faithfulness of disciples with ministering loyalty’, remarked that the foundation and doctrine of Jesus Christ, the Master is there for anyone called to observe and follow, without adding or subtracting from them.
He felt sorry for modern day or End Time preachers, who tell lies and propagate falsehood for personal gain, as their end is severe judgment of God.He reminded those propagating the gospel, as well as those listening to the Word of God to be faithful stewards
