Bishop David Oyedepo of Living Faith Church has said that speaking against men of God could attract leprosy.
He was quoted in multiple reports to have said this on Saturday at the Leadership Empowerment Summit at the church’s headquarters, Faith Tabernacle, Canaanland, Ota, Ogun State.
He warning Christians against criticising their prophets, saying such attitude attracts dangerous punishment from God.
According to the cleric, many of his critics have become victims of the warning noting that the warnings are based on spiritual insights.
However, Bishop Oyedepo admitted that every cleric is subject to criticism which is why prophets of God must endure, saying it is not a problem.
“Beware of speaking hurt against the Ministry you claim to be part of advancing, it’s a risk.
“Beware of speaking hurt against a Prophet you claim to believe. It is dangerous. It can make a man leprous. It is dangerous. We don’t have the data of how many victims may have come from this warning, but I know quite some would have been victims”.
