The Slap Happy “Bishop” David Oyedepo

Posted in Pastor/Teachers, Videos tagged , , , , , , at 10:20 pm by Set Free Indeed


Nigerian Prosperity/Word of Faith Preacher David Oyedepo is gaining international attention due to this video.

While adamantly denying she was a “witch” but a “witch for Jesus,” Oyedepo then called a woman who was kneeling as part of an altar call a “foul devil” asking her “do you know who you are talking to?” then slapping the woman in the face in plain view of the entire congregation. The woman clearly denied being a witch. Oyedepo then dismissed the woman, telling her “You are not set for deliverance, and you are free to go to hell.”

Wow… if that’s not a WWJD moment?

Would Jesus do this? To add insult to injury, Oyedepo one year later then brags about the incident in front of his congregation to applause. Oyedepo claims the woman came back to him and begged him for forgiveness. Manipulation at its height.

Wikipedia reports that David O. Oyedepo, affectionately called “Papa” by members of his church congregation (born September 27, 1954) is a Nigerian Christian author, Preacher and the founder and Presiding Bishop of Living Faith Church World Wide also known as Winners Chapel and its affiliated International churches known as Winners Chapel International, with headquarters in Ogun State, Nigeria. He is also the senior pastor of Faith Tabernacle, a 50,000 seat church auditorium reputed to be the largest church auditorium in the world by the Guinness Book of Records.The Winners Chapel network of churches is present in over 300 cities in all states of Nigeria, as well as in over 63 cities in 32 African Nations, Dubai, the United Kingdom and the United States of America.Oyedepo has been seen as one of pioneers of the Christian charismatic movement in Africa and has been referred to as one of the most powerful preachers in Nigeria.

Much like the Salem witch hunts in early American history, it is quite popular in Africa to abuse, humiliate, and sometimes even kill suspected witches and warlocks, and this behavior is embraced amongst some professing Christians there as well.

Again, we have a case of another wolf who we have allowed to creep in amongst us. The behavior of this man is reprehensible, and no where do I see in the scripture Jesus violently dealing with anyone who was demon possessed. I can’t help but mourn over the mass deception concerning the Word of Faith movement, especially since there seems to only be few which benefit from the falsehood, including Oyedepo who is reported worth $150 Million,  and much like his counterparts Creflo Dollar & TD Jakes,  Kenneth Copeland etc. who fly around in their own private jets, and live like worldly kings. The video is gaining worldwide popularity and criticism and people are calling worldwide for action against the pastor.

Just another day in the IC where authority is abused through false systems. Incidents like this will continue to happen when one man is set as an controlling authority over people… I mean how many times must something like this happen…. and the people love it so?

    What is with this guy and who is he to condem someone to hell and by what authority ! That woman wished to see Jesus and instead she gets five across the face. That son called minister has a heart of stone.

    What the heck was he talking about in his sermon? I don’t think he understood what he was reading. His style is very similar to those ministers of these mega churches, it’s like they’re reading from the same play book.

    I thought she said she only wishes for Jesus, not that she was a witch for Jesus.

    When I see these kind of things happening my heart breaks for the masses. How can they be so fooled into believing this is the way of the Christ? I struggle with what the church has become. The devil our enemy is devouring daily. I’m so happy now to see that someone else feels like I do about Kenneth Copeland who in a recent confrontation with a journalist who approached him in his own church, pointed his finger into her face and with a growl said, “it’s none of your business how many planes I own.” I begged God to make his congregation see that he wasn’t a man of God because if he was, she would have been given an open kind answer and he would have said it with peace and love towards her. Joel Osteen has yet to preach the truth of hell, he only speaks comfortable words. Jesse Duplantis, he’s another one that will blow your mind. Once while watching him preach, I was flabbergasted when he began to make fun of obese women by calling them “fat chicks.” On the front row of that service were two women of large weight. Both were laughing with the crowd but I couldn’t help wonder what they really felt. You should go check out Jesse Duplantis, a man from Louisiana who dresses flashy, talks about himself alot, and uses the pulpit to put on a comedy act! I promise, if nothing else, you’ll be entertained. That’s the sad part.

    Hi every one,

    All i can deduce here, is that these are bunch of loafers and frauds that are looking for cheap popularity and fame, going all the way to MAKE A BLOG about a man that doesn’t even knw they exist. And because they cldn’t phantom the wisdom of this man of God and cldn’t accept and understand how he got the glory. What they don’t knw is that to every glory, there’s a story, and it cld be traced if they actually did their home work well. “By their fruit you shall know them”

    Everybody in UK and US are wagging their tongues about the slap, and not the foul spirit or the agent that disguised to evaluate the Bishop.

    Moreover, what u’re ignorant about, is the fact that Africa is in gross darkness, where anybody no matter the size terrorizes every one once they possess the art of witchcraft. Have you forgotting so soon the war late Arch Bishop Benson Idahosa had and how he showed witches and wizards in Benin, Prophet Obadare etc…?
    In Africa, with the power the witches control,they dare to confront men of God and to weigh their anointing.

    In case u dn’t knw, witches in Africa dn’t wear suit, they wear Agbada and they play ugly, therefore genuine men of God don’t take such CHALLENGE lightly. You dn’t in a Million years knws 4rm where he’s coming 4rm, how many of u can challenge a witch,one on one like that, all you can do is to write and talk, he’s facing challenges in Africa, you’re here in UK/US commenting.

    Where where u when his wife had a spiritual attack, i knw if she had died then, that’s if u ever knw, u wld have concluded quickly that he used her for money.

    Talk is cheap, go get a life. Even if you stop today, another will start tomorrow. Its easy to raise dust on Winners, what u don’t knw is that, all other Great Men of God do have their fair share of such confrontations.

    Hi, Mr Eric,
    I pity the poor of my country, with all due respect Sir, if I may ask, if this woman is a wife of a well known Nigerian with money, will this Bishop slap her? when I write concerning this Bishop’s misdeeds, is because I have the evidence to backup my claim.
    Sir, you will agree with me that due to poorvity in my country, my poeple started running after signs and wounders, which is opposite of what the bible says.
    Sir if I may ask you again how many preachers from my Country travel to other poor African Countires to preach? All we hear is always about when I was in London or USA or Canada, how many preachers preach about Salvation these days in my Country? instead it is always about recieve your miracle now, prosperity, healing, etc, Sir you may not believe Dave or me today, but with time my people shall come to know the truth and the truth shall set them free. Sir, if you say someone is a man of GOD who are you? My bros make you shine u eye well wellooooo no joke with Nija man becus Mugu fall …….. please complete the rest statement.

    God bless you and all of good faith.

    Chris.

    My Sister in Christ,
    The spiritual climate in Nigeria is not the same here in the U.S. You have high incidences of witchcraft and heavy incantations. As a minister of the gospel in Nigeria the level of “target” you become by spiritual wickedness is insane. Witches show up at services to pray against you with satanic assignments to kill you because of the message you are preaching. They turn into birds right before your eyes and fly out of the building. So you have to have a certain mindset when you enter let alone preach there. So I don’t know this minister, but I certainly wouldn’t group him with megaministers here in the U.S. The mega-ministers here have no power, these ministers of the gospel in Nigeria definitely walk in the dominion that Christ died to gift to us.

    To answer your last question:

    First reply: 2 Timothy chapter 3 in its entirety, which speaks about the general state ( of wickedness ) of mankind in the last days…

    Second reply: 2 Timothy 4:3,4… ” For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away (their) ears from the truth, and shall be turned to fables.”

    They heap to themselves false teachers…Why? Because they are false believers who want their “fancies” tickled, their “belief systems” reinforced.

    You’re seeing this born out in the “visible” church; but I’m confident this is not being born out in the actual body of Christ ( the invisible church ) which is being led by the Holy Spirit composed of believers who are regenerate and have new spiritual natures.

    These people are RELIGIOUS, but not of us. If they WERE of us, they would continue in His Word and with biblical discernment.

    On a side note: Isn’t Nigeria currently at the top of the scam artists’ Resident Nation of Choice? I’ve had e-mails from several places in Nigeria asking me for money if I only GIVE them valuable information first…

    It seems to me this “gentleman” is only perpetuating yet another scam to get money, albeit one of the oldest scams in the religious book: Gain a following, HOLD that following and milk them for as much as possible for as long as possible.

    Many of the television “preachers” on TBN would be proud.

    Dave.

      My name is Chris, I have a complete evidence of Bishop David Oyedipo, when he impregenated a Man’s wife, and this child was aborted in Montreal Canada. I asked him to step down and he refused, so I tried to expose him, but since no one would listen to me I kept the whole documents until this day, when our Lord will start exposing these false teachers of the word of GOD. If any one is interested to help expose this Bishop. I have a book written about this story titled THAT MOUNTAIN OF SIN, unpublished.

      Thanks,
      My regards, as GOD will continue to expose false prechers in Negeria.

      Chris.

      • Eric said,

        You are ready to scan Dave…that is what I perceive. If Dave and every other person here speak good thing about the man of God. I am sure you will say I have story about this man of God that is very great, If you want to promote the man of God please contact me…..lol

        As for Dave. you no thing about Nigerian. 89% of Nigerians till tomorrow do not know anything about internet. Out of the remaining 11% that know how to use the internet with access, say about 10% do scam online…you cannot use the few to Judge others.

          Browse tru google, check on pastors in d illuminati and the mormon church, compare their teaching with what is prevalent in nigeria and know the relationship some of these pastors have with a particular so-called pastor, who brags being a prophet of God. Watch you-tube videos of pastors in d illuminati, the bible clearly state two cannot walk together except the agree. pls don’t be fooled any more. My ernest and incessant prayer is that God will expose this false teacher that has mislead millions of the gullible minds in Nigeria as he is revealing in the usa
