    you guys didnt read the part where Jesus came to the temple and saw they turned it to a market place…he was furious and the place he said you without sin throw the first stone…Men wake up they were pastors then too…in a nut shell leave God to judge

  2. NICHOLAS says:

    I PRAY FOR ALL OF U WHO ARE POINTING FINGERS AND INSULTING OTHERS… D TRUTH IS WE ARE ALL CHRISTIANS, NO MATTER D CHURCH, WE ALL MAKE UP THE BODY OF CHRIST. IF THE MAN OF GOD SLAPPED SOMEONE, IS HE NOT HUMAN???? DOES HIS ANOINTING MAKE HIM INVINCIBLE??? HOW MANY OF US ARE WITHOUT SIN??? JUST BECAUSE YOU HAVE NOT SLAPPED SOMEONE DOS NOT MAKE U BETTER THAN SOMEONE WHO DID…
    IF THE CASE WERE TO BE REVERSED AND IT WAS THE GIRL WHO SLAPPED THE MAN OF GOD WHAT WILL B YOUR RESPONSE????… HAHAHA…NIGERIANS!!
    FOR THE LOVE OF CHRIST AND FOR THE BETTERMENT OF OUR COUNTRY,,PLEASE CHANGE YOUR MENTALITY AND THINK ABOUT HOW TO IMPACT YOUR GENERATION POSITIVELY AND AFFECT YOUR WORLD FOR CHRIST!
    FINALLY SALVATION IS PERSONAL!!! I AM NOT A PASTOR, IN FACT, I AM A MEDICAL STUDENT…”BUT I KNOW WHO I AM”… MAY GOD BLESS OUR COUNTRY NIGERIA…

    but if we are able to do powerful deliverance, signs and wonders in and outside the country. But what did the bible says? Matthew 10:8 (NJV) heals the sick, cleanse the lepers, and raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give. Galatians 6 NKJV Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ. Matthew 25:35 for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me. Wake up all you self righteous pastors. Is not about Slap is about healing the sick. Ashlork.

    i pity you guys for your contributions, remember we don,t serve any man, or defend any fellow but christ, all christains are partakers of one body which is christ and not any pastor, and dont condemn any man for any fault, for those of you who have given him a portion in hell,always pray for the ministers of God, satan the devil is trying any means to stop the gospel of jesus chrit our saviour by striking his ministers.i urge everyone to pray for them rather than critising and being a fan of one minister and enemy to others. thanks all

    IF YOU WATCH THIS VIDEO AND LISTEN TO BISHOP WORD FOR WORD,HE ALSO HAD THE POWER OVER LIFE AND DEATH,BECAUSE THE WITCH CAME BACK TO HIM TO BEG FOR HIS LIFE,MY QUESTION IS WAS IT A WITCH OR WIZARD?,WHICH EVER IT IS,THE BISHOP CERTAINLY HAD A MORE POTENT POWER THAN THE WITCH OR WIZARD,AND HE CERTAINLY IS NOT OF CHRIST BECAUSE HE SAID BY THERE FRUIT YOU SHALL KNOW THEM,FROM THE RECORDS IN THE BIBLE THERE IS NO INCIDENCE OF VIOLENCE FROM CHRIST,EVEN WHEN HE WAS BEEN ARRESTED AND “MALKUS”(one of the followers) BROUGHT OUT A SWORD AND STRUCK ONE OF THE SOLDIERS EARS,CHRIST STILL WENT AHEAD TO HEAL THE EARS OF THAT SOLDIER(he also reprimanded malkus),BUT THESE ARE CERTAINLY THE WOLVES IN SHEEP SKINS THAT CHRIST SPOKE ABOUT,SO BEWARE,I WAS VERY DISAPPOINTED WHEN SOMEONE I KNEW THAT WAS A REGULAR MEMBER OF THAT CHURCH CAME WITH ENVELOPES FOR FUND RAISING FOR THEIR UNIVERSITY,HE COULD NOT LATER AFFORD THE FEES FOR HIS SON’S TUITION IN THE SAME SCHOOL THEY RAISED FUNDS TO BUILD,I THOUGH IT WAS GOING TO BE THE SAME MISSIONARY TYPE OF SERVICE BUT LITTLE DID THEY KNOW IT WAS BUISNESS,MAY GOD ALMIGHTY SAVE US FROM ALL THE DEVICE’S OF THE DEVIL.

    Well, you have all spoken well people. But I think there is a lot more to what you and I have heard so far about this case on ground, and I will like to draw your attention to the passage of the bible that says “judge not” so that you too may not be judged. The greatest problem of some people in this country is that we are too quick too condemn than build, we prefer to knock our spiritual fathers on their foreheads than respect them; forgetting the fact that God is our judge. And as a result, we leave our own weaknesses and problems behind and put other people’s own into a deep and proper consideration. I am not a member of Bishop Oyedepo’s church and he don’t even know me if he sees me, but I am hundred percent behind him for slapping a “witch”.
    If a man of says he has the “right” to slap a with, have you asked yourself; what right is he talking about? Even if he is talking about social and political right, he still has the right, but of course that’s not what he’s even talking about here. When a man
    Of GOD says he has the right to slap a witch, he’s simply referring to the spiritual right, power and backing which those criticising him lacks the wisdom to understand. As a pastor he has every spiritual right to do so within the confine of his calling provided the witch was found or noticed in or within the confine of his ministry. For goodness’ sake do you even know what a witch is and what a witch is capable of doing, or are you a witch yourself or do you have or share powers with them? And even if you do, your power is too small and too limited to compare or contest with that of Jesus. If you like witch, then pray for God to bless you with one either for a wife, husband or child. But if you still will not accept this piece of truth and repent from judging people and disregarding God’s servants, then I am therefore left with no other choice than to do this:
    Everyone criticising or against Bishop Oyedepo slapping a witch, in the name of Jesus christ of nazareth, may the greatest of the greatest of witches and demons visit you and your ministry!!!

  8. eddy says:

    like Jesus said he that has no sin should cast the first stone, most of u guys condemning here would be the first to carry tire and petrol to burn that same girl if u discovered she was found guilty of killing your family with witchcraft….. The girl said she is a witch for Christ, where in the bible did you see that darkness and light had anything in common….if i was in bishop’s shoes i would do the same for trying to rub the name of Jesus with witchcraft to confuse people that our savior has anything to do with witches….God help the so called Christians of this generation you need to be spiritual and read your bible’s.

  9. ivy says:

    Na wah oh, y oyedepo dey fall him hand na!!!, wetin him do no gud oh. Bcos if u slap me I go stab u. Jesus no slap any person 2 cast out demon ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh…

  10. bisi says:

    the pastor is right to slap any member that violate church doctrine and their is not wrong because as a shepherd if sheep is about to go astray you can use any methods to draw him back.it even better to be corrected by any means and enter God kingdom than pampered and go to hell. let the girl herself examine the issue and talk either the pastor wrong for that action or not . but my believe is that she is going to support her pastor

  11. kola says:

    I think the man is very wrong and made a big mistake,but let leave judgement for lord

  12. frank says:

    I dont believe jesus will ever slap a person who responds to call salvation.I wonder what will happen if pastors under oyedapo starts slapping after the order of their father,will he endorse or rebuke them.Lord have mercy.

  13. I have been examinating out some of your posts and it’s pretty nice stuff. I will definitely bookmark your website.

  14. Name ojo says:

    Na waoooo. If Jesus were to slap He would have slapped all human race, no one will be free from His slaps, some will receive hundreds of slaps, kicks and so on. We just ask that God will have mercy on us as His children. AMEN

  15. yfor says:

    Oyedepo should apologies to the girl and the nation. Our fight is not with the flesh but the spirit. When Peter used sword to cut of the ear of one of the guard that came to arrest Jesus, Jesus was’t happy. Oyedepo is not above error and can err out of anger or provocation and shud not be too big to apologies. If the daughter of the president said what that girl said would he have slapped her? If aggression is now used by pastors then the Holy Spirit would then have no work to do cos He (Holy Spirit) fights only the spirit not flesh

    A canal man cannot understand the things of the spirit. this is spiritual mata abeg u people to leave bishop oyedepo alone. it is between him and God.

    To all readers, please can u tell me what a policeman would do when caught any thief and d thief refuse to admit his/her act. Or when ask to shut up or beg for freedom and he/she refuse. Man of God can discipline whosoever that is under him. Let us all pray to God for Mercy.

    if u have not or never will u slap someone for any reason then u can judge the pastor

  20. fimber says:

    he can not slap me,if he slaps me i will slap him back immediately.

  21. J.O says:

    Sad stuf..2many pple bein misled.. don’t depend on self-proclaimed ‘men of God’ 2lead u..they may b leadin u in2 darkness..No one wil com 2ur rescue wen gettn judged..Salvation is personal,knw ur Faith people..don’t judge any1 tho, God will..

  22. Chucks says:

    I see where Oyedepo is coming from, maybe it is time for him to look into his mamoth congregation of human beings and begin to slap everybody who has committed or comits sin, because sin is sin whether witchcraft, 419, lying, fornication, adultary, jealousy, pride, bribery and corruption, gossiping, manipulation, lording over the children of God; so it goes on – an endless list – which I believe will occupy him till Jesus comes, and then there will be no more judgement for Jesue to deal, because Oyedepo would have done the job for Jesus – is this really supposed to be – bros repent, ehm, you are not God, you can not be God, and cannot be above mistake – that soul needed God and still needs God, salvation, forgiveness, deliverance, the help of the Holy Spirit and not the slap of another man who was GRACIOUSLY SAVED from his sins, and his righteousness that was as filthy as a filthy rag before God – for that is how God saw all men before sending Jesus not to slap us but to save us; by the free gift of the Salvation of God in Christ Jesus – if God were to judge withough salvation, who will stand – God says no one – not even Oyedepo.

    If u are not ok with the slap given, then hug the transformer, or dive into the ocean!!! Haba, the tin no even move the man nor reduce normal church attendance, so why are u people ranting up and down, well, NA POVERTY DEY WORRY UNA!!!

  26. Chris .Eniwo says:

    Those who ar sayin what they dnt knw abt d dos of some one who agred to b a witch,i pray dat may u nt b found wnted by them.even d bible condem dat evil spirit operatin in people,it hs change d joy of many home to pain n sorow.dnt pity dem bcos they wouldnt pity u.so let thos who can handle them should do

  27. Ade says:

    You guyz are all right but @ kenny Sola you are just an Hippo-crate, Tell me when Jesus wanted to cast out demons does He slapped them? you said thou shall not judge, what was papa doing here? is he not judging the poor girl? who knows whether it is propaganda! You are just a moron.

  28. Amos says:

    I wouldn’t know Oyedepo got the right from. Definitely not from the Bible and the constitution of Nigeria did not confer that right to him either. That aside, what authority does he have to establish that a person is a witch? If self confession is what he refers, the lady said ‘I am not a witch but I am a witch for Jesus’. She qualified the type of her witch-craft in a figure of speech which can mean more than one translation.
    My concern is that a man of such power and influence doesn’t show remorse in the face of glaring evidence of manifested ANGER and VIOLENCE attack on a harmless girl. If he is this boastful and arrogant in front of camera, he may order to kill where no members of the public apart from his deceived followers only are present.
    King Saul was a man God anointed, long after he misbehaved, he was still thinking he is connected to the anointing without knowing that God had since left him.
    I don’t have to lecture Oyedepo on what the gift of God is all about. The gift of God is without repentance. One may have secured the gift when he was upright with the Lord but after backsliding without repentance, the gift may still be there but the giver has long left the person.

    • Chucks says:

      Well done Amons, you are spot on – but be encouraged, go ahead and teach him what he needs to know – afterall Paul taught Peter who was actually his pastor – bible says iron sharpens iron, every child of God is an equal heir before God, only Jesus is the head, we are born to worship Him and Him alone, and hold no fear or respect for any man regardless of titles. Bible says again for every child of God to prefer one another above himself, but we do not see that today, Bible calls pastors and teachers servants who are called to served in the Lords vine yard and not dictators,autocrats or democrats – there is so much ailment in our dear body of Christ – but regardless God is at work, this issue should make Oyedepo reflect and strive for humily with God and true love and service to brethren and the rest of mankind.

    • asher says:

      you know this scripture and feel you are God to judge,why not check yourself and see if you on the right track before you look like the thief that was with Jesus on the cross trying to question his person rather than asking for forgiveness

  29. josephine says:

    We all should stop the judging,knowing fully well that we all are humans and are bend to respond,And if any of you is not scared of a witch just wait and see how you will react to a witch respond or attack to you,so judge not so that you won’t be judged.

  30. Soji says:

    What is the proof that Oyedepo is actually called by God or that he is not a false prophet, I have seen in my dreams/vision that he is fake, therefore I have right to stone him,,,and believe me, I will look for him, find him and stone him hard,, I HAVE THE RIGHT TO DO SO…AND I WILL…I heard his thugs, sorry body guards, have guns,,,no yawa..
    And as for those that see nothing wrong with the slapping, this is my prayer for you…MAY UR MOTHER, SISTER, WIFE, DAUGHTER AND ALL FEMALES IN UR GENERATION BE PUNCHED, KICKED AND SLAPPED PUBLICLY BY MEN OF GOD IN THE NAME OF PRAYER, COUNSELING AND DELIVERANCE IN JESUS NAME……OYA SAY AMEN…FOOLS

    • in house says:

      soji, i think u are a bigger fool. go ahead and look for him, do what u like to him. u will get ur answer. “curse”

  31. life2real says:

    …remember, “practice what i preach not what i DO….hmmmm”
    Although, pastor is not perfect as being speculAted….so wake up!!!!! he’s not God in any form or dimension but a spiritual head assigned to shepard souls unto the track of salvation…..but @ this point its obvious certain drives are in control of the mind.
    lets remember, the spirit of God is a meek, gentle spirit towards sheeps that sort for guidiance,love,protection & salvation.
    I’m no one to JUDGE.

  32. life2real says:

    i used 2 respect the pastor until this.
    its quite unfortunate, but it tell’s me a lot about whatever degree of success or level of attAINMENT you achieve or hold in life…..”foolishness befalls a man that assumes in his sight all wise”
    i personally would think,”what would Jesus have done to the lady(acclaimed witch) & what would jesus have said to pastor @ that point in time?
    We have similar cases in the holy bible….i’m nobody to JUDGE anyone.

  33. Saved by God says:

    Why a̶̲̥̅̊rε U̶̲̥̅̊ guys judging? Íڪ this the case affecting Nigerians?..Oyedepo íڪ A̶̲̥̅ spiritual leader, U̶̲̥̅̊ can’t settle such issues under natural/national laws. Rom 12:12, Proverbs 28:4 and Ecl 7:20…nobody’ڪ perfect, just workout U̶̲̥̅̊я̲̅ salvation βr☺†̥ђã.

  35. Kenny sola says:

    Slappgiving by Bishop Oyedepo!!! I never knew Nigerians love to see witches around them like this. A witch can destroy the whole generation, may witches not visit your home else you would know that slapping them is not an offence. I am surprised at this becoming an issue on social networks here and abroad including those who refused to come home because of witches in their villages. I think it’s high time you all leave the witch, the bishop and allow the God who sent him to judge Instead of backing the half baked and quack journalists. Stop castigating the man of God if you are not being tormented by the witches. Fear your head o

  36. Rashard says:

    How can a man of God said he has right to sleep fellow human being, what is ur reason Mr Pastor can u pls tell d world…

  37. Name says:

    thou shall not judge , please leave judgement for God before you all will bring cause to your self.

    God knows best,slapping in the whole church is very wrong,I will not support this at all,what do you people think about this

    if you dont respond when some abuse your father then you are not the true child of that father.

    • James says:

      I did not see anywhere in the Bible where our Lord Jesus Christ slaps a sinner not even those that have 7 evil spirits, unless if I read a different Bible version. My Bible says Lord Jesus Christ pray for those souls and cast out the demons in them.

    • Name says:

      if the father is wrong then the father should be called to order..its not about winners but about the body of Christ. no one has the right to slap anybody, another of God’s creation

    • bibi says:

      Absolutely disgraceful! It’s only in Nigeria that people can get away with human right abuses. The masses are helpless, the pilice and armed forces brutalise them, the rich voppress them, touts and hoodlums victimise them, and now- even the very people they look up to for succour and spiritual leadership also batter them and have the efforontery to brag about it! Disgrace.

    • Name says:

      Such act is absolutely unacceptable, even God said, let sinners come unto me. So who is any pastor to slap a fellow human just because they said they are witch. I think it’s all bullocks. A real witch won’t admit she’s a witch…. As a nation we are letting poverty and illiteracy take away our human right.

  41. Name says:

    You must be out of ur mind…did U̶̲̥̅̊ ask why he slapped d person? U̶̲̥̅̊ guys are just bunch of irrational n unreasonable fellows… Its nothing but envy of d winners family worldwide

    • isi says:

      envy of winners family worldwide? you are very funny. Have you thought why this video came out now? if this man does not change his methods, this is the beginning of the end of the winners family. and hopefully one day it will be your child that he assaults.

      • joseph says:

        for God’s sake people should treat issues without sentiments. A weel respected man like Bishop Oyedepo does something as wrong as assaulting a young person and you say people have a problem with it because they are jealous? Please wake up….wake up…..

    • life2real says:

      A sick mind that as been perforated,washed,gone yonder & psychological derailed.
      How can u say, in the right frame….envy of the winners family worldwide? A unreasonable measure of thinking, an example of speech before thought, a practical exhibition of naija mentality & sadly a very very bad example of a member of the family but clear & typical entity known as a church GOER.
      My friend, it is expected of you to be reasonable in your thoughts & speeches…..who knows,if its a child!

  42. Amed says:

    How can a man of God said he has right to sleep fellow heman being ,the fact that it was labelled witch was in material , He commited an offence of Battary which is punishable by law in tort . In a country where trespase to person is oulawed ,he can get away with it despite admitting .Shame on rule of law in Nigeria.

    • Name says:

      The Bible says’ Suffer not a witch to live’ A witch can destroy a whole generation.May witch never visit your family no matter how small then you would know that slapping them is not an offence.You people never find out to know what happened, you were just backing the half baked and quack journalists.I never knew Nigerians love witches hanging around them like this.Whatever happens, why can’t you people concentrate on your business, leave the witch, the bishop and allow God who sent him to judge?Instead of it been an issue here and abroad.A lot of Nigerians abroad refused to come home ‘cos of witches in their family yet they are still catigating the man of God.Fear your head o

        shut d fuck up and put d dirty finger U used to type dis shit in ur anus, then put it in ur mouth and ur pastor’s mouth…if it was TB Joshua that did this shit act, all d mumus, dummies and fools in Winner will by now be screaming devil.. awon were jati-jati

        • joseph says:

          Please let no one come to the pastor’s defense. He says he has a right to slap someone. Something is going to happen and this event would be revisited…dont say i did not tell you..

        • kennth prince. says:

          my brother soji,u are right the guy that type that words is COMPLETE COMPOUND FOOL he knows nothing and he is siding rubbish if it were to be T.B. JOSHUA THE WINNERS WILL BE HAPPY now it has come to this nitwit so called oyedepo there are covering him he should not worry he is pompous because he feels he is rich but God will surely bring him down because he is oppressing people in his church fire will burn him and he will come back to zero. i have now find out that he is one of the fake man of God now because a real man of God will never ever slap his member in a full congregation never but what he has done so it is big sin.God will judge him for his evil act.fire burn them all.

  43. He must be out of his mind. When long hand of the law catches up with him, he will be singing a different song. Do you people forget Rev. King? He said more than that, where is he today? Arrogance and intimidation are part of their training as fraud stars.

    • kennth prince. says:

      He is a fucking man of God i am angry that God never show urgent justice to such people i know they will perish one by one fire burn him for such act he has done.Can he slap one of his rich man daughter in that church.what an insolent?.I hate this so called nitiwit fake pastor oyedepo for this stupid act he has done.i am ashamed of him, u called yourself a man of God and u have four private jet and ur congregation is suffering what is ur gain.Please they should learn from prophet T.B.Joshua cant u see how he is giving and they still went on condemning him but fire will burn them all.

      That fake oyedepo will see the rot of what he did to that girl he slap he is already caused because a true man of God don’t do that so he should wait for what will happen.Fire burn him.bom bom clak.
