Speaking during a live service on Sunday, pastor Adeboye said if he could, he would restrict his messages to his members alone but the lockdown has given everyone access.
He appealed to his critics not to be annoyed as his messages are for his children alone.
In his own words, “As a matter of fact, if there is a way of preaching this sermon just to my own children alone that is what I would have done. Not because I’m selfish but occasionally there are things you say to your children that would annoy outsiders. And you keep on saying, but I am not talking to you, I am talking to my children. But now, the lockdown has made the door open to everybody.
“Some people see the glory but don’t know the story. Some people see me and say all kinds of things. It’s none of my business, I don’t need to answer you; I just need to keep on riding high with my king. I’m talking to my children, so others should not be angry with me. Before you take off, consider your landing.”
It should be recalled that Pastor Adeboye was in the eye of a controversy over a birthday message he sent to his wife, Pastor Folu Adeboye on her birthday.
