June 23, 2013 – Deeper Life Church Pastor Kumuyi’s Son’, John’s Wedding In Jamaica Sparks Controversy

Last weekend, John Kumuyi, the 2nd son of Deeper Life General Overseer, Pastor W.F Kumuyi married his longtime fiancee, Love Odih in Jamaica.

The stylish wedding ceremony that was graced by top Deeper Life Dignitaries from all over the world was success.

The glamourous wedding ceremony happened to be one of its kind in the highly indoctrinated church.

As we are all aware that the church’s doctrine forbids women wearing flash wedding gowns, jewelries, and makeup on their wedding day.

But for Love Odih, the daughter of Deeper Life’s national overseer in Jamaica, the reverse is the case.

On her wedding day, Love appeared beautiful with her earrings, sexy wedding dress, eyelashes and makeup.

This has sparked serious anger amongst concerned deeper lifers and outsiders who think this is a bit contrary to the church’s doctrine.

Below are few comments on this controversial topic;

Pastor W.F.kumuyi is not to blame for this worldliness in Jamaican branch of the church.The church has a hierarchy and it is expected that the national overseer of jamaican church should maintain godly standard and not to yield to john and his daughter in their craving for the world even though it involves pastor’s children! What pastor Kumuyi expected to see as visitor during the wedding ceremony is godliness of the arrangement and not the contrary! But as a man of God who is always controlled by God’s spirit,he may not react immediately.But definitely he may not be in tune with the whole exercise judging frm the countenance in the picture.We know our pastor through his undiluted preaching and life.He is really an example to any deeperlifer that care to make heaven at last! But we don’t know the national overseer of Jamaican church under whose watch the church of God is being ridiculed.If John & love and bride’s parents decided to allow worldliness in their wedding ,then it is up to them! God will judge even if wedding of pastors’ children does not glorify Him.Brethren, focus your attention on God,pray for our pastor Kumuyi and the church.I see the whole thing to be an attack on the church through those allowed themselves as tool of worldliness .- John A

Pst kumuyi shud trash these in the coming crusade to the world let us know the stand of the church.JOHN!!! U are a disgrace to Christ ur Dad and the church,u might be on ur way to HELL FIRE but i pray u come 2 track.shame to you and ur so called wife.i pray dat ur bro don’t break our heart as u did nd i pray dat Pst kumuyi will mis his mansion in Heaven bcos of u.once again SHAME!SHAME!!SHAME! – Ezra

Going to heaven is a personal conviction,don’t let the devil decive you by what so ever.keep looking unto jesus…happy married life to bro.john and love kumuyi. – Joyous joe

All that want to happen has happen many are called but few are chosen,anyone with the spirit of God will always stand for the truth what is bad is bad how will john’s father feel?what ever we got to do on this earth let us remember that the owner of your life is watching you.the standards of DLCM still remain the same. Notting change,I pray I will not be a stumbling blood to anyone . – Esthe

Heaven is real and hell is real,please dont wait to get there before u believe on God,s standard.Jesus wants us to be natural the way He created us,for what shall it profit a man if he gained the whole world and loose his soul.Forget about who does what and think about ur own soul.Jesus is longer coming soon but NOW.Believers be warned!- Esthe

As Christians we need 2 b careful wit our tongue bcos we ar goin 2 give account one day .I believe in moderation in all things, besides, in essentials let there b unity and in non essentials let the liberty, d coming of our Lord is at hand. – oludimu

I will say (1) This distraction is important and a notable one. (2) Deeper Life as a church actually wants its members to make heaven. That is the utmost desire of Pastor Kumuyi and the pastor’s that work with him. (3) Sometimes the call of God and His demand for your time may be so demanding that you rarely have time to even buy or watch TV, in fact seeing someone having time to watch Tv you might almost think he or she is not a serious christian. God’s call and demand for different people may differ but we should be wise to know when it is for specific individuals and so not to be generalized. (4) Do not make sinning too cheap. Many have sinned by their comment, do not do it. Any statement not made in love is in error. I Love pastor Kumuyi and his labor of love will not be in vain in Jesus name. Amen – Chike

Now I understand why Daddy used to refer to Deeper Life members as Hyprocites… They are as worst as the devil. How can you be preaching against people putting on earrings and make up and on ur own wedding Day ur son allowed his bride to make up. When my sister was getting married, I asked her if she will be putting on earrings, but she said No, we are not Deeper life member but we follow the doctrine of the bible. I have never put on earring and I have never condemned those who put them on,….. This is just pure nonsense. A family friend attending deeper life church destroyed their Television because it was called the box of Satan by their G.O Kumuyi, months later, they went to Kumuyi’s house and they found put that the man actually uses Television. What are we saying. – Olayemi

BEWARE AND JUDGE NOT! GOD SEES THE INTENT OF EVERY HEART. DONT FORGET THEY ARE NOT IN NIGERIA. WHAT IS BRIDE WEAR IS MODERATE. REMEMBER, EVERY MAN WILL ACCOUNT FOR EVERY IDLE WORDS THAT HE SAID. LET’S WAIT FOR THE MAN OF GOD TO CLEAR THE AIR. I AM SURE MOST OF THESE POLICY ABOUT MARRIAGE IS INVENTED BY THE MARRIAGE COMMITTEE AND NOT THE PASTOR. EVEN MOST OF THE PROBLEMS WE ARE SUBJECTED TO DURING OUR ENCOUNTER WITH THE MARRIAGE COMMITTEE, THE PASTOR MAY NOT BE AWARE OF IT. IMAGINE IF YOU ARE ALSO A LEADER, I BELIEVE IT IS ONLY WHAT YOU ARE TOLD BY YOUR LEADER THAT YOU WILL FOLLOW. DONT LET THIS DISTRACT YOUR ATTENTION, JESUS IS COMING VERY SOON. FOR YOUR INFORMATION, PASTOR KUMUYI WILL MAKE IT BECAUSE IF WE ASK HIM HE WILL DEFEND ACCORDING TO THE WORD OF GOD. WATCH YOUR OWN LIFES REMEMBER, THE LORD IS AT HAND… – Ogundiran

  1. Abeg leave sister love alone,haha,her hubby is not complaining now,abeg oooo let them be,God does not look at d outward appearance,he looks at d inside,mend ur ways n stop all these religious grammar…love n john happy married life

    • Hmmm…also didn’t know that some xtians simple stuffs like ratings as an issue to go to heaven.I hope they read Gal.5:19-21 and know what exactly God wants of us! May the Lord gv us the grace to overcome this world.Amen

      • It suprise me that john could do such things but remember john was not there when d wife up they only met in d church so i cannot place d whole blame on him dat always be d attitude of women try 2 put problem in man life

    • Be not deceived what a man looks on the outward is simply what is in his heart, is one dress immodestly then that simply reflect the condition of his or her heart. Calling the GS a hypocrisy is very dangerous, remember we will give account of every word we have said in the day of the judgement. Was it John’s wedding or GS wedding? Salvation is personal and doesn’t depend on who your parents are, judge the GS according to his own works and not the son’s. On the issue of the TV in itself if properly used on godly things there is no problem in it, the problem are the programs that dirtifies one’s mind, pornographic pictures are the order of the day. If one truly want to be pure in heart and want to make heaven he/she will keep himself away from watching TV.

      • It’s not a taboo to watch TV. Whatever u see on TV is ur choice, be it sports, religous programmes, movies or even pornography or what have u? That’s why we have parental control pin code and other editing softwares nowadays. This so called “devil’s box” has changed so many people’s lives for better ranging from business ideas and job opportunities to healing and salvation. So i disagree with u.

    • Slash wot u r sayin renike or wateva u r…tink nd not lip b4 tinkin. Wld u kil ur fada b4 his tym nd tink ur lyf wil rmain swit?-NO! Use ur hed nd make it registered among dat of d wys! John nd luv v don folli…dey only nid repentance. Get it?

  2. We must avoid sentiment when dealing with issues like this.It is not proper to force two people who believe they are meant for each other to yield to your mould.We owe our children genuine prayers and not attacking.

  3. Plsss bro correct that statement in the aspect of that Pastor Kumuyi will make heaven. We should wait and hear from our father daddy Kumuyi, i knw he will definately address this isssu, and will trash this issue. So lets nt sin against God by judging. Daddy will addres us, devil wants to cos locmotion in the church but he has failed already. The devil knws what God wants to use daddy to do and he thinks thats the best way to way daddy down, but, hahahhahahahaha he has fail already, lets just pray that God will full daddy with power to build us.

  4. Speaking against the man of GOD is what i will not be part of, im not a deeper life member but still i hv the fear of GOD. As for dressing, a person that has the spirit of GOD in him does the right thing. Why not ask the spirit to come in u so that u will do the right thing. Not after tieing urself from hair to toe at last u will go to hell.

  5. Love was perpectly dreessed.she was not naked so i dont know why people wont let her be.what we should be concerned about is how they will both live happily not their dreessing

  6. happy married life Jonn and love may you enjoy your marriage and your parent will also be proud of you.what this couple wear is moderate and good enough you are the one inventing sin,God say there should be moderation in all things.You want the lady to look as if she was mourning the loss of an husband on her wedding day?to tie a scarf like somebody suffering from pneumonia or migrain.please go and read the bible well and ask God for understanding go and read all the places where bride was use and the type of description,you will be amaze that God love beautiful things. leave the children alone.

  7. This is a great man of GOD,so i dnt criticise him.but john has not done well at all and i know pst kumuyi will address this with tym.but dnt be carried away think about urself.i wish them happy married lyf and hope for apology from them to the church and to GOD.

  8. Those people shouting hell ,hell,hell fire, you are not like JESUS.JESUS preaches with love and say come unto me…behold I stand by the door and knock..not forcefully.you cant win the world like that.Gods people should be deep in knowledge not just be full of church doctrines without soundness.The disciple is not above his master nor the servant above his lord.Mt.10.24. Pls listen to pastor Kumuyis mmsg on you tube.- “non essential traditions”
    You have to catch a fish before you wash the fish,no fish will wait for u to wash it in the river when you have not caught it. Gods people should not be ignorant or be half turned cakes.Hosea. 7.8.Let us first remove the logs in our own eyes b4 we see the speck in the eyes our brother.Mt.7.3.,weep for ourselves first(Mt.23.28)God says judgement will begin in the house of GOD,and that if the righteous be scarcely (managably)saved,what will be the end of the ungodly sinner.1 Pet.4.17,18.God will judge the whole world by one man only which he appointed,JESUS. Acts.17.31.Let us emphasise heaven and deemphasise hell

  9. Past Kumuyi, is just a simple messenger of God called to reform and transform and prepare people for heaven. It takes high standard to live on earth to qualify for heaven.
    Remember, by mare striking of the rock instead of speaking to the rock Moses missed the promised land.
    Why don’t you search your inner mind to see wheather Pastor Kumuyi is wrong or right for passing the message of holiness to the whole world or not.
    If His son goes below the standard for which he has been preaching you cannot hold him responsible.
    Please do not make Kumuyi look stupid so that you do not confuse him the way Moses was confused
    The question is are you a candidate for heaven or not, if your conscience is alive and it judges you, know it that you will also be judged in likewise manner.
    John Kumuyi and William Kumuyi will give account of their lives what they have done in the secret and the open just as you will also.
    Remove the log of wood in your eyes first before judging and prosecuting other men of God. You do not have a say in this matter except God. You are never in a position to judge men of God – Remember what happened to the three Abiram, korah, Dathan

  10. why do we pretend to be holy,GOD is the only true judge,allow him to judge and stop complaing about her dressing.is it by dressing like an old woman that will make u holy haha i laugh.don’t say what u can prove.

  11. people leave tehm alone go and do ur own wedding as like and wear anything dt u think is ok 4 u stop judging them

  12. You people are just deceiving yourself. You have turned the bible upside to suite you. Deeper lifers behave as if they are the only ones that will make heaven because they feel thery are more Godly. I don’t see anything wrong with Love and her mode of dressing on her wedding day.

  13. Let us leave non-essential events and face our journey to Heaven individually. Do not judge because you are not capable to do that. You might sin against God at the process of going ahead to do.

  14. TO COMPLAINERS, ACCUSERS NIGERIAN OR OTHERS!

    =THINK OF PEACE BUT NOT OF EVIL
    =THINK OF GOOD BUT NOT OF EVIL
    =TALK AND SPEAK OF GOOD BUT NOT OF BAD
    =THINKING POSITIVELY BUT NOT NEGATIVELY FATHER FORGIVE U FOR U DONT KNOW WHAT U ARE DOING.

  15. @ Obi apology for what? for looking good and happy. you all shld stop deciving yrselves, continue waiting for dad to address the issue and trash it. what do you want him to tell u, the same story you want to hear. you can’t make heaven by ur looks but by yr heart. yr soul is wat matters. i rest my case here.

  16. Congratulations! Mr&mrs kumuyi May God bless ur union {Amen} don’t listing 2 what people say. What is matter is ur relaionship with God are very important in life, ur wife dressing are nt bad.Am nt member of ur Church.

  17. Who made you to be judges over God’s creation ezra & co?
    By your comments you are more worst(er) than them.
    Make heaven 1st b4 sending others to hell fire. Hypocrisy

  18. don’t judge but condemn evil, don’t be mislead is that the bible principles regarding how women should adore themselves

  19. Forget being Pastor Kumuyi’s Son ooooooh, Jamaica life is different from Africa precisely Nigeria, for that Lady to dress like that there is fear of God in that Church over there go to Jamaica and see things!

  20. Heartly rejoice with u both,but Brother John can u c what u av cause?for u to allow ur bride to wear what is forbiden to ur church doctrine all because of beauty.pls appologise to ur creator.no one should judge others

  21. I think most people are either getting the issue here wrongly or just being sentimental. The main issue is that thousands of followers have been deprived of such glamorous wedding all in the name church doctrine even when they can afford it. For Kumuyi’s son and the daughter of a senior pastor in the church to have this kind of wedding, i think those who have been deprived or such wedding deserve apology from the church leaders. I once attended a friends wedding at Deep Life Church, Kaduna, men, it was really boring. I was praying for the programme to quickly come to an end as I could not just leave being one of the friends and organizers. There is nothing really bad to look beautiful on ones wedding day and enjoy yourself. Its a time in a life time thing.

  22. I am highly disappointed at John,Bride and Brides parents. I am not surprise about what i am seeing. To my comrades out there, don not allow these to affect your conviction. My mind is made up. It is not in anyway looking unto the National overseer, or any other figure, but unto Jesus the Author and Finisher our faith. Let us strive to enter, for narrow is the way that leads to life eternal and few there are. Be one of the few. To John and Bride, take heed.

  23. Double standard! Just when i was contemplating to make a return to deeper life having been disappointed in those churches which pastor kumuyi usually referred to as being worldly. If any man love the world, such is an enemy of God, he would say. He quotes conspicuously from 1john 2:15 vis a vis 1Peter 3:3-5 warning us to disassociate ourselves from such ungodly appearance. He underscores the importance of Christian dressing as one of the major/vital requirement to making heaven. We were misled… He cannot be exonerated as his presence at the wedding further exposes his complicity in the whole dance of macabre as always enunciated by him in his scripture quoting of Numbers 25.

    • Shut ur trapp. John is big enof to decide 4 him self nd by the way if na pikin wedding, even if u meet them naked, Would u run into the streets like a mad man nd reject ’em. Trash. Jeolousy do ur own.

  24. Serz I am catholic and I follow the teachings of the church .everything is created by God and should be used in moderation if not it becomes an idol.

  25. The man of God is nt to be blame..john is supose to lay gud example instead he prefer to lay d bad 1,he prefer to obey his wife n disobey his father… He did nt respect his father’s feeling Wht a shame… The man of God has tried his best he wl nt kill himslf bcos of 1 child,u can force a horse to d river buh u can nt force him to drink water…. D devil is tryin to cos comotion in d church, but wl must pray n take our stand… Where wil u spend internity?remain bless…

  26. It’s not all about what has happened as regards the wedding, leave that to the true Judge. The question is, where do you stand?

  27. Oh LORD help me. Let not my action(s) make others to stumble. 1 COR 8 : 9-13, also remember MATT 12 : 36

  28. What ever happened Pastor has passed on the message, the doctrine of the church remain the same and can not be altered to suit any person or persons for any reason.
    Make your way right before God and be holy.
    God bless you.

  29. change is enevitable we are in 21century.pst kumuyi has open a new phase in dis church.if it is a pastor in d church dat did dis he wil hv been inpreson and expel frm d church.b4 any body wil continue rember in gods kingdom there is no sacread cow.

  30. Hahahahahaha. The issue here is a matter of the heart. What majority of we deeper lifers don’t understand is that the world is changing. Mehn u dnt expect me to wed the way my parents wedded, dhatz trash, the fact that we wount go extravagant, does not mean that we wount do what ought to be done. And yhu dnt 4get that a capenter and and a millionair wount wed in the same way, even if the have the same beleive. What annoyings me most is that our wedding committes down the line makes things unbearable for the member, that which people at the top don’t realy see as any tin. Please dnt castigate Gs o. The wedding is kul.

  31. All l can say is:lt is WELL and may HIS GRACE,MERCY & FAVOUR be SUFFICIENT for us to make HEAVEN when HE comes.Stop criticizing and Start sermonizing the unsaved about the eternal impending danger awaiting whoever is unsaved!

  32. tho diz wedding is unacceptabl cuz its cusing unesesary heat in d polity,bt want to say dt d devl has fail alrady becaus since he can not win daddy kumoyi,he passd thro d son to bring down d chirch after fourty yrs…..i want to say diz to all heavn minded xtian dt if u knw d truth,belv in it 4gt abt wt u see or hear..work for ur salvation and ur work shall b rewarded…

  34. abeg laf wan tear my ribs for ere, i pity all of u judgin, the day of rapture wil shock most of u, i tell u, better return to the Bible and read t wd the guidance of the holy spirit, cos most ppl practice religion nt salvation, that final day, many ppl wil be disappointed, continue lookin sorrowly and blame t on christianity wdout appropriate adherence to the entirety of the word of God,y’all wil be shocked on dt day, i tell u… happy married life to my daddy in the Lord’ son and his dear wife, u guys rock!! May God bless ur home. Amennn

  35. I keep telling people, The Catholic Church has been around for over 2000 years, and all the practices has been thoroughly debated before being allowed as was the case in the Council at Jerusalem. As the years go by, every other church will still finally realize that the mother church remains the only option for Christianity. God will one day answer Jesus prayer for unity of John 17.

  36. To you all running your mouth by judging/condemning, what matters is your own self. The question that demands an answer from you there is, WHERE WILL YOU SPEND ETERNITY? Especially after all your comments.

  37. To you all running your mouth isn’t it a burdensome/worrisom revelation from God that from Jan-June only 2 people made heaven out of the thousands if not millions that had died within this time. Yet all you can do is to condemn/judge the MOG. Aren’t you concerned about ur own selves? You think God would lower the standard of heaven for any one? The standard is RIGHTEOUSNESS/HOLINESS/PURITY & TRUTH. You all that think with jewelries,perming/attachment on you in death you can make heaven i weep for you. Pray for this church instead of running your mouth. What should burder you is this, WHERE WILL I SPEND ETERNITY?

  38. No one knows in the closet to what extent Ps or GS,Kumuyi did in his effort to have counseled them or not. … we’re just criticizing as to what had happened in the wedding but who knows what really happened?

    John and Love are only one or two of the disciples of Christ. … who knows by now now the unbending and the unadulterated Ps W F Kumuyi would have given the godly counsel, the godly verdict not>?

    brethren, was Judas not one of the “sons”, to wit, the disciples of Jesus? did he not go his own way? did he revolt against his ‘father’ i.e his master, Jesus? did he not sell his master? … the great whys and whats?

    …did the apostle condemn Christ for allowing Judas to go ‘strange’? …did the Apostle CHANGE THE DOCTRINE OF CHRIST BECAUSE CHRIST DISCIPLE- JUDAS, CHANGED HIS ‘APPAREL, HIS CONDUCT’? I ASK.OR DID THEY MAINTAIN THE DOCTRINE TILL TODAY?

    OR were we looking for an occasion,excuse to tumble-rumble-fall and have there4,had an occasion to stumble or fall-in as a stumbling block ready to …?

    So ‘my co-heaven-wanters’ let us look unto CHRIST JESUS OUR GRAND MASTER. YES , IT’S TRUE JUDAS FELL BUT DID THE REST FALL? JOHN AN LOVE HAVE “FALLEN”- SHOULD WE FALL??? AFTER all ‘after all these do the Gentiles, heathen look for. what are we looking for? HEAVEN? HELL? WORLDLINESS? CRITICISM? OR FAULT-FINDING?

    John and Love have their own lives to live, W F Kumuyi has his own life to live(only that he doing every thing possible to lead us unto our promise land), and we have our lives to live. …so let us live accountably accountable.
    … from afar.
    selah.

  39. Don’t defend the indefensible, don’t judge where you don’t have the details is the only way to keep your peace, your faith and your goal of getting to heaven. To fall because someone fell before you will not mitigate the pain. “Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith.” For every satanic example there is a saintly example; you have no reasons to backslide. “Whatsoever is not of faith is sin”. Those that do not dress like Love openly but murmur inwardly are as guilty as she is.

  40. This ugly things do happen. It happened in the Bible; Eli’s sons were disgrace to their father who was a subsisting priest then. John is now a disgrace to his father the G.O of DLBC. I urge all ministers to watch over their souls and that of their wards, cultural differences or not the word of God remains the same all over the world it never changes. To the faithful, please hold on to your faith and don’t be discouraged and distracted by this unholy marriage of John and Love.

  41. Lets come back home. can it be found in the Bible where God condems the use of ear ring, use of make up?In the first instance, condeming the use of jewelries and make up in a moderate way is a sin becos is not stated in the bible afterall the isrealites contributed gold and silver even bracelet when the building of the tabernacle was going on.Exodus 35: 20-24. Then if u are quoting 1Tim. 2: 9, 10, there bible encourages modesty and nothing more. Pls and pls dont mis interpret the scrpitures becos of ur own selfish reasons

  42. John is a disgrace to his father and the
    church as a whole…..why didnt they stop
    the wedding when she was dress that
    way…GOD HELP DEEPER LIFE BIBLE
    CHURCH.

  43. we should be holy both inward and outward so that the holyspirit will dwell in us so our mode of dreesings matters a lot
