July 7th, 2013 – Pastor Tunde Bakare Condemns Deeper Life Church’s Doctrine “John Kumuyi & Wife Did Nothing Wrong”

Pastor Tunde Bakare, the GO of Latter rain ministries in Lagos is speaking up for the very first time since the controversy surrounding the glamorous wedding ceremony of John Kumuyi, the 2nd son of the Deeper Life Church’s founder, Pastor W.F Kumuyi started.

As we are all aware, the beautiful couple tied the knot in elegance on the 15th of June, 2013 in Jamaica.

The bride allegedly dressed contrary to Deeper Life church’s doctrine that forbids women wearing beautiful wedding dresses, jewelries and makeup on their wedding day.

The doctrine also forbids using wedding flowers and luxuries like renting a Limousine,etc.

In this recent sermon, Pastor Tunde Bakare, a former member of the Deeper Life Church has condemned the church’s doctrine calling it wicked.

He said John Kumuyi and his wife did nothing wrong. He even supported his claim with genuine bible verses.

Hear Pastor Tunde Bakare in his own words below;

“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.”

Do you agree with him?

  1. the pastor that condemns deeperlife doctrine was among those that were in deeper life but was not for deeper life. He was with them but not among them so he left. Now he wants every one to leave, his wife was in deeper life but could not do away with worldliness because of him. What you can not keep you can not fight. The quotation used said for their husband but here we are talking of a public ceremony. A worldwide view. NB: THOSE WHO ARE CONDEMNING DISCIPLINE ARE THOSE WHO COULD HAVE ALSO FINISHED DEEPER LIFE IF IT HAS BEEN ALLOWED. after the wedding, just in a few hour the whole world have heard that deeper life has failed because of what the saw now the same people are saying it is good. Eternity will tell. Jesus said upon THIS ROCK I BUILD MY CHURCH, ( not upon this sand.) sand is a weak doctrine, do it any how, say it any how, dress is any how, and Jesus said this will fall when the wind and rain beat upon it. On this the gate of hell will prevail. But for the CHURCH ON THE ROCK OF AGES, the gate of hell shall never prevail against it. Never.

    • Mr prince Winner go and study ur bible very and allow the holy Spirit to interprets it well to u. Christianity is 100% spiritual, it has nothing to do with physical appearance. What ever u put on it is the motive u have behind it that defines whether it is sin or not. I am not condemning a church but the truth must be said, the spirit of religion has so much consumed deeper life church such that the things they pursue after have nothing to do with a mans salvation. Christianity is beyond religious norms. It is a lifestyle (character). Christ has given us liberty but some men of God ar still enslaving people under bondage. Deeper life church in the western world women puts on trousers to church with uncovered head but in nigeria it is something different. The question is, is there any separate heaven for those people and the ones in Nigeria? Or is the God in London different from the one in Nigeria? Open ur eyes! And study ur bible well

  2. the canal man can not understand the things of the spirit. It never be subject to the laws of God and never will be, have you forgotten Romans 12 vs 1, 2nd corinthians 6 vs 14-18. And Luke 16 vs 15. Says …for That which is highly esteemed among men is an abomination in the sight of God. And if the foundation be destroyed what can the Righteous do. Thank God for a man like W. F. Kumuyi. Who honours God above his own life. Jesus said unless you hate your own family, etc and your own life you can’t be my disciple. May God preserve and keep the G.S. In Jesus name, amen.

  3. P+S+T+R Tunde”””’My prayer 2 God 4 u is 2 be arrested(as HE did 2 saul)&restored b4 it is 2 late 4 u.U’ve bin drowned by stormy sea of dis end tym.imagine; PASTOR->>POLITICS->>WORLDLINESS.Pls undrstnd;I’m not judgin bt sayin reality.God help me&all these pple sayin their mind(nt God’s mind) 2 live HOLY& see God @ last IJN.It takes GRACE.

  4. From beginninig i so much ve respect for the deeper life ministry,though I am nt a member of deeper life but of late,wat is happening is amazing nd on call for,wen mariam and others complained abt moses been married 2 an ethiopian woman God judge dem,so d so called saints in deeper life,who re u 2 judge d anointed man of God.Bcos d bible says touch nt my anointed and do my prophet no harm,salvation is a personal thing so if u knw u rilli lov ur G.O. Nd d ministry,why dnt u let d sleeping dog lie nd pls stop washing ur dirty linen outside…so plsssss d saints dnt scater all dat dis man of God has labour for…for many years…plsss kip ur mouth shut nd leave d man for God….SHALOM

  5. First of all I mst disagree wt other pple who said since this have to do with deeper life then noone should interfere..that’s jst wrong..its our responsibility to interfere and speak out in cases like this..if this was a muslim scandal, we will interfere, how much more a christian one, cos evn if we re nt deeper lifers..the fact remains we are all under the body of christ and share same faith in Jesus and God. That being said, I must agree with Pastor Tunde on this.. Must traditions be followed blindly? Ok..this is how it has been done since time immemorial, does that mean that’s how it should always be? If a church denies individual the need to use the freewill given to them by God, then that church is making a mockery of the fact that God gave us the freewill in the 1st place. Why should we ve to be slave to religion and tradition?. For those saying these deeper life doctrines make the race easier should pls save that crap story. Which race easier? I grew up among these pple and ve seen things they do, that I who is “immodest” in their church sense will think twice about. They fall to sin like every other human out there, so what race is made easier? The race of hypocrisy?. Jesus came to free us from the trap of the law..or was the law of old not meant to make things easier for the isrealites? But it became a trap which sprung forth hyprocrites like the scribes and pharisees.. Jesus came to free us from that trap and what did we do? We seek to trap ourselves again? These traditions can’t take anyone to heaven, they breed pple who act virtuous on the outside but are dark and unclean on the inside.. Everyone ve their own individual belief but they shouldn’t hold anyone to such belief..even Paul believed in not getting married bt he never held anyone to that belief..why do we do so now? The only standard for going to heaven is “love”..and Jesus Christ stated that message in clear words. So what is this talk abt makeup and beautiful dresses as a gateway to hell. Its high time we stop deceiving ourselves, christianity is not as hard as most churches are desperate to make pple believe. I have nothing against the deeper life and their overseer. He’s a great man with great annointing..but somehow they become too focus on their own standard and forgets God standard. This lady wasn’t naked, the only offense she seem to ve committed here is the offense of looking Good..and when did that become an offense before man or God?

Pls lets stop all these! But if u have money its not bad to spend it for poor ones to come and see and believe. Next time pls all of u should train ur children in the forest wit raffia clothing so they will not see and associate themselves wit good things and evil and not outside Nigeria

  8. Leave all judgementz,reservatnz n commentz 2 God.condemnation,criticismz n vain babbling can only b connected n attributed to d valley of eccentricity.d man of God is knwn 4 his reservd attitude n moderacy coupled wt his undiluted love filled humility n he’s a man of principle.let me put dis fact straight,evaluate ur words b4 posting..it’s share idiosyncrasy making misanthropical n heartless statements abt men of God.nw let me get personal,john kumuyi is his son n he wants him 2 b in concordance 2 d wrd of God nt in absolute negatn n also d doctrine is also important on his own so he must obey n b an example bt as it has happend coupled wt d apology,wat is ur provocative comments aimed @? B matured my frnds

  9. Everyone of us need a solid relationship with God and we should get out of this argumentative essay remember God is watching us, i can see that satan has given Christians assignment to be fighting themselves we should all repent

  10. All those who are insulting Mrs Ohio for her comments are outdated people with their 14th century mentality,they are only tightening ropes on themselves and not geniunely acting the bible ways. a good Christian is not under the bondage of any law. young Kumiyi and the wife are free to live their life the way it pleases their God and not Man.

  11. Mathew 7:1 Do not judge any one. Secondly the Bible says the Kingdom of God is within you and that is why nobody that reads or hears messages from the Bible commits sin without he or she knowing yes he or she does. Ok does it means if you don’t go to deeper life you can’t go to heaven? I don’t think so. Read your Bible every day, obey the Ten Commandments of God and especially the messages from Lord Jesus Christ which reveals the nature of time and life. Please deeper life members don’t suspend anybody again because you can only take a horse to the stream but you can’t force it to drink water. It is just like witches and wizards among your members that dress according to your doctrine and go to their meeting in the night. We have no power to judge them but God knows best . Continue with your good message of God and who has ears let him hear it.

  12. Be careful what you say about any man of God. Only God will Judge him and knows whether his teachings are right or wrong? Are you the one who has called him? If God has really chosen him to do his work he will punish you,leave it to God because the bible says “touch not my anointed” you don’t want the wrath of God.I don’t agree with suspending him, His son’s relationship with God is between him and his God, if the wedding is wrong let God judge him.
    That saying, the son & wife ,who belong to the church knew the doctrines of the church,so for them to out and do their wedding a different way from what their church teaches raises a few questions. Does it mean the son has just suddenly realised that some of the doctrines are not right?who are we to judge? There’s are so many pastors who have trained up their children when they are younger…when a child grows it’s up to him to maintain that relationship with God.their parents can only continue to pray that they maintain the faith.Do not blame his father for his faults as he did his part to introduce the word to him.Thats also his son, he has the right to question him,it’s his Gods gift to him.You can never blame any pastor for any member of their flock backslides,you can choose to believe or not to.Salvation is between you and God.Let this couple be, it doesn’t mean God hasn’t blessed their marriage.The problem is people are so occupied worrying about what someone is wearing in church, focus on preaching the gospel. How about you look at your own heart?? Are you blameless or still pointing fingers?
    And Mrs.Ohio for her comments, take it to God if you are that touched and not attack another pastor. You don’t know maybe God is using this man to bring comfort to the new couple, they look happy.This is not time to point fingers but ask God to be the centre of it all.
    Let’s all read the bible and focus mainly on what it teaches and not add nor subtract anything from it.

  13. Pastor did u remember that……above all what shall it profit a man who gain all this world (worldliness beautiful tins of this world) and looses his soul……tink about that…..

  14. you are a fukin good for nothin ***** for sayin such shit about Buhari…. and hen does th bible stop a pastor from serving people??????? read your bible and dont be pushed by every wind of doctrine….that’s in the bible….

  15. Pls church is diided to the word of God across the world, the bible say we are head not the tail, we are the king n rulers on earth, and al of us ar serving thesame God. Now the question is, why did the deeper life member look at other churches unholiness? Why are they not alowing the girls to get mary to another believer at another church except DL? The lord say we shal dress perfectly wit expensive cloth n u say no, why? Pls am not insulting bt we shal becareful we some of this so called doctrine. There is no df btw jews n gentle, so stop creating confusion on women brain, we are al body of christ. Alow them to mary the man off there dream, in watever church he is. Let love one another that is the new commamdement.

  16. MR MAN OF GOD, DONT BE DECIEVED WHENEVER THERE IS A REBUKE DO NOT COVER UP. GOD HATES HYPOCRITES. AS A TRUE BELIEVER, YOU MUST ENSURE THAT YOU ARE ABLE TO CARRY OUT ALL THE BIBLE INSTRUCTS. THE WIFE DID THE WRONG THING AS SAID IN THE BIBLE, WOMEN MUST COVER THEIR HAIR, NOT JUST PART OF IT. MANY PEOPLE WHO SEE THIS PICTURE WILL COMPLAIN AND TALK BITTERLY ABOUT THE CHURCH AND MAY ALSO SAY THAT BECAUSE HE IS THE PASTORS SON THE FATHER CANNOT COMPLAIN. DO WHAT IS RIGHT. REMEMBER IT IS WHETHER YOU ARE FOR OR AGAINST THE CHURCH DOCTRINES IF YOU ARE PART OF THE CHURCH.

  17. I WANT TO ALSO SAY THAT WHAT GOD HAS GIVEN TO US IS PERFECT. WHEN YOU ADD ARTIFICIAL PRODUCTS TO MAKE URSELF LOOK MORE BEAUTIFUL, GOD DOES NOT RECOGNISE YOU ANYORE BECAUSE HE DOESNT REMEMBER CREATING ANYTHING LYK DAT. ASK URSELF, WHY DIDNT GOD CREATE THE HOLE FOR PLACING EARRING IN IT? DONT FOLLOW WHAT OTHER PEOPLE ARE DOING FOLLOW GOD, AND HIM ALONE. DONT BRING SHAME INTO THE CHURCH FOR OUTSIDERSTO CRITICISE THE CHURCH

    • My question is y do u they plain at all, is like u people don’t know the meaning of attachment.. It not only braid weavon etc..dear anything attached to ur hair is decoration.. Even that rubber u claim ur planting is totally man made

  18. They should stop bathing,robbing cream,planting hair at all because they are all attachment.. U will see pastor driving flashes cars but the member will became a slave..again y do there men dress smart and attractive.. U people should stop deceiving ur self,God is not a dirty God..any way all this type of churches is like market to me..

  19. lol i can not come nd die 4 any church ooo. infact let me come nd b going cos i cant fit shout. pls oo u people should run ur own race nd leave others to run theirs. heavenly race, everybody on your own(OYO)
