The Christian Association of Nigeria has called for the stoning of Pastor Tunde Bakare of the Latter Rain Assembly if he is unable to win the 2019 election.
This call was made by the Secretary General of CAN, Rev. Musa Asake who is of the opinion that Bakare is using his position to lie to the people.
Recall that at the start of the year, Bakare declared that he would run for President and that it was a directive from God himself.
Speaking in an interview with the Vanguard, Asake was scathing in his criticism of the pastor, saying that people should wait and see and that if in 2019 he is unsuccessful in his Presidential bid then he should face grave repercussions.
He said; “Let’s wait to see. If God has ordained him to be the president, fine, it’s next year, so let’s wait and see. I don’t know how they read their bible.
“The Bible is very clear. Anybody who says he’s a prophet and prophesies and it doesn’t come to pass, the Bible stated that you take him out of the city and stone him.
“These people that are just making a name and playing with God’s name, they don’t know that when their end begins to crumble, they will have no place to stay.
“It was the same God that asked him to run with Muhammadu Buhari in 2011 and they didn’t win, so, why then will he declare that God sent him? Don’t let me think his God is different from the God we worship. That’s not my God.
“There’s nowhere my God has said anything and it failed. These people must be serving a small letter god. God asked him to run with Buhari and that they were going to make it, finally he did not. Buhari later picked another pastor, Yemi Osinbajo.
“Maybe he was wishing they would have picked him but it was the same God that was misdirecting him. And now God is bringing him back again so we will wait to see that God again next year God willing.”
