Nigerian church leaders react to John and Love Kumuyi's suspension

The son of the General-Superintendent of Deeper Life, Pastor William Kumuyi, was suspended after his wife wore a wedding dress the church termed 'inappropriate'. If you missed it, read the story here

Church leaders are now reacting to the suspension of John and Love Kumuyi, calling it hypocritical. The General Overseer of Latter Rain Assembly, Pastor Tunde Bakare said:
“I personally did not see what they have done wrong. A man is entitled to his own authority in his own home.1st Peter Chapter 3. A wife should dress to please the husband and not the members of the church or public. It’s sheer wickedness to the couple, they should leave them to enjoy their honeymoon. They should not squeeze them to the modus operandi of a particular organization. I did not see anything wrong in the wedding. The bride was not naked or dressed inappropriately and  the groom didn’t. Esther the queen was beautifully dressed in the bible to gain the king’s attention. They should not make mountain out of a molehill. I was in the Deeper Life Bible Church for five years and nobody compelled me to dress the way I dressed. My wife was with me in the church though we weren’t married then. She wears earrings and dresses nicely. All this talk about this couple should stop.”
The General Overseer of the Royal Family Life Ministry, Pastor Sam Segun-Progress said:
"Dressing in any way does not affect the faith of any individual. Putting on earrings and making up do not by any way mean sinful acts. It’s not against Christian faith to dress the way the woman dressed. But it was actually against the doctrine of Deeper Life Bible Church, and since the church is not the Kingdom of God, the couple should be allowed to do that which pleases them and their belief.”
“There is no condemnation to them who are in Christ Jesus. For any church leader to condemn a member contravenes the standard of the scripture, which is the symbol of our Christian faith. The doctrine of any church has nothing to do with the kingdom of God. Every individual should be allowed to do that which pleases his faith.
"I would have appreciated it better if this affected couple were just disciplined within the church and were not suspended. The suspension of the two notable members of the church is capable of sending them out of the church and Christianity totally.
"All I can deduce from what happened in the Deeper Life Bible Church is hypocrisy and this is not too good for our churches and the church leaders. I will urge the leadership of Deeper Life Bible Church to read the book of Exodus and see what God says about hypocrisy. The development in the church was a bad omen for the body of Christ and did not portray the church well before the public, especially the non-Christians.”

They shouldn't complain about the actions of the deeper life assembly, they don't need to chastise at all, I would rather turn to the members who can't leave, if the doctrines of a church are not in line with what you envisage then leave! They are lots of churches everywhere!

Well said. There suspension would have made sense if the girl was half naked. In fact this should even make them change d doctrine. "Change has come" they should be dressed in a wedding dress and covered up not looking like one being used as an item for sacrifice in d water like d white garment churches. It's d heart that matters after all same time dressing good and modestly not in rags or unkempt to show u re a child of God. At d end of all prayers, we all say #AMEN# na One God..

And this here explains why I always tell my 'Frankie' that organized religion is a facade...why do you think God(if there's one)in all his glory as explained in the Bible(which I've read back to back like twice)will condescend as low as bothering Himself with what a mere mortal wears on his skin when there's the Devil constantly waging a war against Him and winning his folks over?I mean,God couldn't be that jobless,could He? Here's MY THOUGHT on this;It is only morally upright for one to dress in a certain manner that won't give em out as loose or wayward. Therefore,morality is what I opine and if your morality doesn't stipulate proper dressing,please by all means,wear whatever the flying fuck suits you. I think the Church should be more concerned with how to regain its lost folks who are constantly converting to Islam and other faster growing religions than it is with what people wear. In the immortal words of Karl Marx;Religion Is the ----of the masses!

Don't get deeper life wrong,every church has their doctrines and if u can't cope with the doctrine of a particular church then feel free to move to d one dat it's doctrine suits u...pastor Kumuyi's son and his wife knows abt d church doctrine and still decided to go against it and if he Pastor Kumuyi didn't do anytin abt it then d members will talk abt it and say it is because d offender is his son...inasmuch as I dnt support it bt I feel dat whoeva defaults must be punished accordingly and let all oda pastors protesting against it mind deir own churches...dat's all

julivia said...

I think " men of God" should be very careful when expressing their opinions. They should do so with a sense of responsibility.
The issue at stake is not about what is right or wrong. It is about what is expedient. Also, DLCM, although a part of God' kingdom is also an institution advancing the kingdom of God. Their doctrine on dressing is not stated as a means to grace or salvation. It is part of the culture of the institution called DLCM.
The church has made a lot of impact in the society. They have furthered excellence in the academic sector, economic sector name it.
So, I will like to enjoin those in leadership to be careful about how they use their words.
The children always had a choice. Back out if you cannot cope. To scoff at the institution the way they did is not the best. They accepted leadership positions in an institution they don't believe in? I believe that is not good at all.

I think we ar all leaving d fact dat d wedding will nt take place at d grooms church, especially since d bride's father is d GO of another church, once d bride's church does nt forbid that type of dressing, I don't see any reason 4 suspension expect d wedding actually takes place in deeper life nd even at dat, Christianity its all abt love nd 4giveness, afterall they've formally apologise to d church.

Well said preacher, the law was made to bring people to christ, he who knew no sin was mad sin, so we are the rightousness of God, and there is no codemnation for those who are in christ Jesus, don't.

D church is suppose to bring pple nearer,not keep people out. Doctrine or not,I don't tink any 1 should be locked out of a church. African's carry religion on their head,confused nd ignorant people,being pushed to d left nd to d right,al cos 1 man made a rule. Church goers should focus more on God and not their pastors. African's need to wake up,we are too far behind. To be honest,I think religion is african's curse. Some people carry it on their head like a job. The most important thing is living right. Loving ur neighbour as u love urself. Some people wuld go to church nd immediately they r out,dey becomes wolves. D world wuld be a better place if the Church was 1 body! But churches have become quick business now,we have over 1,000 denominations in Nigeria. God help us! At d end,its d heart God sees,nd not d body!

Daniel said...

The dressing was against the church doctrine and laws as an institution.However the parents of the children should be suspended as they breached the church doctrines. Children don't wed themselves, it's the parents responsibility and if the Pastors believed that God frowned at what happened, as His representatives they shouldn't have allowed the wedding the hold show their displeasure by not attending or ensured she changed or something. (I've seen this happen before). So Pastor Kumuyi consented by attending and taking pictures with the couple and clearly shown from the pictures. At least they should have removed the flower or the limo. Both Pastors should be suspended or the law should be changed, because God doesn't frown at what happened. The children were decent. The whole letter was just a cover up and kudos to the person who leaked the photos.

Exactly!!! R dey telling us now that the parents of the bride didn't see th e gown before d wedding, or pst.kumuyi hadn't seen d girl b4 now that her hair was permed or she has not been wearing make-up before she got married. At least all this shld have been seen b4 now or the lady just decided to do all this because she was getting married dat day. Plsssss let's stop giving the christian body a name that wld speak bad of us. Why did they agree to wed them. I have been to most wedding where they send the bride and brides maid out due to improper dressing. Except that is how the church in jamaica dress for wedding. If not the pastor shld have refused to wed them!!! Enough of all this drama...

Abiodun said...

Every man of God that is called by God is given the vision for His Church which has to be followed by all members. If you cannot follow it then you have to opt out of the Church. If the Pastors criticizing the great man of God and his Church are given the vision for their members to be wearing pants or be naked to their Churches, so be it for their members and their families. Pursue your vision, mind your own families and leave the great man of God to what The Lord committed to his hand. Have you ever seen a Muslim lady or woman leaving her head uncovered to the Mosque? All of you that call yourselves Christians and Pastors that have been criticizing Daddy Kumuyi and his Church should be ashamed of yourself of the disrepute you have brought to Christianity and the Church. Instead of you to busy yourself winning souls into the Kingdom of God, you are criticizing the Biblical doctrine because of your mis-interpretation of the word of God. Study 2Timothy 3:1-14; 1Peter 3:1 -6. The Scripture says, "Woe unto the Pastors misleading my sheep". The coming of The Lord is at hand and if you don't believe, what about death, this will surely come whether you like it or not at a time you do not expect. Therefore, according to Colossians Chapter 3 set your affections on the things of Heaven and not of this earth that will perish. When your soul departs from your body when you die, where will you spend your eternity? Heaven or Hell? Don't be caught unaware, a word is enough for the wise.

It's hilarious how some people here comment, is it possible that you did not notice pastor Kumuyi (father) and his wife took pictures with the couple with those clothes? So, when you are saying they should be punished for blah blah blah, why didn't the fathers (who are both pastors) walk out on the wedding ceremony?

This is a case of after thought. Because their members most of whom decided to wear rags were complaining. Yes they have their doctrines which as a member you should follow or go to another church to we'd if you would rather wear normal clothes, but was this lady naked? Did her father not see the wedding dress? Did they not do dress rehearsal b4 the wedding or show the church what they were going to wear?

It appears some in the body of Christ are losing focus. If she was showing cleavage, laps, etc, this would have made sense

She wore a wedding gown and showed us her fingers big whoop. Obviously the church members have a different hell than the rest of humanity or they would have had the sense to know that the punishment of the couple was unjust and plain stupidity. Hypocrisy is a sin oh!!!!!

I dont just knw what to say, because i expected their outfit to be checked ever before the weddin, we do this in RCCG.

and the guy fall my hand, he suppose to kne what his wife shld wear because they represent their Daddy "Kumuyi" they wld hav dressed as it supposed. its absolutely nonsense, i knw Deeper life so well, they wld never take this shit from a member not to talk of Kumuyi's son.
The guy really disgrace his dad and church, in RCCG this out fit is nice, very okay, just because we dont have Deeper life sense of dressin.

if I am to be "Kumuyi's son or Daughter, honestly and in all sincerity I will dress like Deeper life because of my Dad's reputation.

i will say, the guy misbehave, he disrespect his dad because of love, and the ministers that joined them 2geda made a big mistake, even the marriage committees failed Kumuyi. they all have questions to answer, even if the guy behav like a kid they are their to put them right.

Can u peep pls leave deeperlife and face ur life challenges. the church members have decided on wat they seems right. John shld go on his knees lest his act affects his dad ministry cos he wont go unpunish mark my words. it will take David kind of grace to deliver him.

They deserved their punishment all the way. John and love knew abt the church doctrine and I bet they ave bin to a couple of weddings held in deeper life. My point is love had no right to dress that way to wed in a deeper life church except in another church. Let dem go and serve out their punishment and apologise to pastor kumuyi who they ave brought unimaginable pains to.

Nna I don't see anything wrong in the gown o, cos is she's practically covered from beck to toe abi they want make she add nijab and ninja mask join the dressing ni?. I never regretted leaving them.

Dee said...

In my own opinion, seeing that the way the bride was dressed is against the doctrines of the church,the wedding shouldn't have been conducted in the first place. There is nothing indecent about the bride's dress to me. I agree with Pastor B. Linda I think you should make room for liking comments. All that needs to be said are just being repeated in different forms.

I pity all of u with these busybody GOs speakinng against God's church and against GOD'S ANOINTED. Remember Matt. 12:36 "Every idle word that men speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgement" how many of u GOs, men that unworthy of that title can do what pastor kumuyi did-carrying out discplinay measures on your son if he goes against a set standard huh? Have you listened to THE SAME revelations God has been giving to DIFFERENT people(non-deeper lifers) lately? Their dressing(deeper lifers) is the only one recomended by God. So u see, u are just on your way to hell. REPENT before it's too late.
