The General Overseer (G O) of Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor E. A. Adeboye, has sent a strong but fatherly advice to young pastors in the face of recent sex scandals  rocking the church.

In his message at the monthly Holy Ghost service of the RCCG on Friday night, Adeboye solenmy warned young pastors to flee from every appearance of evil.

According to a report in TheNewsGuru (TNG), Adeboye said: “I don’t want to comment on some happenings around. I have always told you when people say, why don’t you talk, I say, I am under authority. The Redeemed Christian Church of God belongs to CAN (Christian Association of Nigeria) and we belong to PFN (Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria).

“In CAN, we have a president. In PFN, we have a president. Whatever they say, that is what I have said. That is why I keep my mouth shut.

“But I feel compelled to say some things to those who are young, and  upcoming ministers of God. Everything I am going to say is, from the Bible, so if you want to criticize what I have said, you will have to criticize the Bible.

“Number one, it is written there is nothing hid that shall not come to the open – Mark 4:22. It doesn’t matter how long. You think you have done something and it is covered, that it will never come to the open, then you can go and throw away your Bible, because the one who said so, the One who said there is nothing hid that will not come to the open, is the Truth Himself, Jesus Christ, the harbinger of grace.

“There are some of us who think that somebody like me they say we are old fashioned. I agree. I’m old fashioned. I’m old fashioned because Jesus is old fashioned. He is the same yesterday, today and forever. He hasn’t changed. God the father is old fashioned. The same dress which He has been wearing before the foundation of the earth is what He is still wearing today. God is not fashionable; He only wears light. Nothing hid, nothing hid that will not be made manifest.

“Two, sooner or later, according to Numbers 32: 23, sooner or later, your sin will find you out. It’s sure; that’s what the Bible says, your sin will find you out. How, if you have given your life to Jesus, blood of Jesus will wash away all your sins but after you gave your life to Jesus, you continue in sin, under the guise of grace, as the Lord lives, your sin will find you out.

“Which brings me to number three. I am advising all the young ones. The Bible says, you must abstain from every appearance of evil – 1 Thessalonians 5:22.

“The elders say, they want to burn you, you rub yourself with oil, and you sat near fire, you made the job easy. The elders, African elders, not me, I am a young boy, the elders say, they are calling you a thief, and you are playing with the child of a goat. The elders say, what you are not going to eat, don’t smell. Avoid every appearance of evil. Avoid it.

“Just one more point… the Bible says, if the devil comes to you face to face to fight you, it said, stand and fight. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. But according to 2 Timothy 2:22, it said, when you find yourself facing youthful lust, temptation, it said, don’t wait to fight; flee. Flee means run as a terror.

“When you see a sister smiling at you, in a way, run! Run as a terror. Don’t say I’m a great man of God, I’m highly anointed; ask Samson.

“I know you will say, he has come again, he is an old fashioned man. I agree. That is what they called me when I said I will never have a private secretary who is a woman. No! Private secretary has to be a man. Because… when a woman accuses you of something, nobody is going to listen to you. Nobody! They will listen to the woman. When you say, where is witness, sister will say, do they invite people to such things? When you say, how can it be me? Everybody will say, how come it is you that she has mentioned of all the men?

“I am old fashioned, but I was ordained in 1975, and I am still surviving. It is better to be old fashioned and live than to be modern and die,” Pastor Adeboye said.
