Christians don’t need Guns for self defence, RCCG Overseer, Pastor Adeboye asserts


The General Overseer of Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye, has asserted that christians don’t need gun for self-defence.

Adeboye said this to clarify an earlier message, where he was quoted to have asked christians to buy guns for their self protection, especially the churches during service. The cleric stated this during the RCCG’s monthly thanksgiving service.

Adeboye said, “I never asked christians to buy guns, christians don’t need guns. Samson did not fight with an AK-47. Don’t go and buy guns.”

While emphasising that they required permission to buy guns, he noted that they don’t require permission to get the jawbone of a cow.

“You don’t need permission to buy the jaws bones of a cow”, the cleric noted.

He added:

“I have always wondered how you demonstrate to children in Sunday School, but the best way is to show children using the jawbone of a cow. Don’t buy guns.”

Speaking about how to escape from danger especially as it relates to sexual harassment against women and men, the clergyman advised that they should show diligence and hard work to get to the top, and not wait to be contaminated.

“When it comes to someone contaminating you, slap, bite, kick, and run. When you see a brother smiling as you, run. There are battles you don’t wait to fight. Keep yourself pure”, Adeboye said.
