Following the constant criticism that has trailed the school fees charged by Covenant University, a private higher institution owned by the Living Faith Church worldwide, Bishop David Oyedepo, founder of the church, has appealed to the critics to either desist from further criticism or attract the wrath of God.
Bishop Oyedepo said this in a telecast during telecast of the 2016 pre-Shiloh Convention gathering of the church monitored via satellite in different parts of the country on Saturday, November 5. He added that the critics were acting in ignorance and risked incurring the anger of God.
According to the man of God, one of such critic was smitten with a strange plague of chronic mouth odour over the act but later received spiritual pardon following his confession and “my intervention before he was restored to dignity”.
The issue of school fees paid by students of the Covenant university, he said, was a godly agenda designed to meet the demands of bringing up godly children in a conducive learning environment. He also said that criticisms of such were as a result of ignorance considering the fact that what students pay could not be compared with what is obtained from other universities that lacked facilities.
“The school fees has Gods approval and is in accordance with the quality of facilities provided by the university in meeting the educational needs of the nation.”
Bishop David Oyedepo further revealed that the church in its pioneering role in moving the frontiers of education with excellence had finished all necessary arrangements to establish offshore universities. The cleric went on to say that a fully automated Bible press by the church had been completed and would be launched in no time.
Quoting from some Bible passages, Oyedepo said the present economic downturn was predicted but that devoted Christians would be exempted from its effect. He prayed for resources for parents to always meet the demands of the time and declared the theme of this year’s Shiloh as “My Case is Different”.
The bishop said this year’s annual event of Shiloh holding between Dec. 6 and Dec. 10, would not be advertised as former events as it would be church based.
