Stop attacking Buhari in newspapers, internet — Kumuyi

General Superintendent of Deeper Christian Life Ministry, William Kumuyi, has said that Christians should not attack President Muhammadu Buhari whether via newspapers or the internet.

Kumuyi said this on Sunday during his sermon at the headquarters of his church in Gbagada, Lagos.

Kumuyi said that Christians must obey constituted authorities, shun violence and be Christ-like in character, conducts and conversations.

He read 1 Peter 2:11-25 and said that Christians’ lifestyles must reflect Christ in a civil society as government derives authority from God.

“Don’t attack the president of the country whether in words or in the newspapers or through internet,” Kumuyi said.

“Honour kings, don’t disrespect or dishonour the governors. Don’t disrespect leaders of the community and leaders in the church.

“If we are to honour the governors in the states, how much more the pastors.”

The cleric said that God wanted Christians to submit to the leadership He had given to them in the church, community, country and corporate organisations.

“If we are going to heaven, we must be careful and thoughtful and run from all appearance of evil.

“Don’t be ignorant, careless, and thoughtless. Many are ignorant of the day of visitation,” he said.
