Pastor Reno Omokri, a former aide to ex-president Goodluck Jonathan, has chided the Founder and General Overseer of Salvation Ministries, David Ibiyeomie, for calling Daddy Freeze ‘a bastard’, accusing him of insulting Oyedepo.
Recall that recently, a scriptural battle ensued between Bishop David Oyedepo, the presiding Bishop of the Megachurch Faith Tabernacle, and Living Faith Church Worldwide, also known as Winners’ Chapel International, and a controversial On-Air Personality (OAP), Ifedayo Olarinde, aka, Daddy Freeze.
Oyedepo in his teaching had stated that the women folks must have to be submissive to their husbands for them to enjoy what God has in stock for them. However, Daddy Freeze called out on Oyedepo, saying that submission is not only meant for the women folks alone.
It was on this premise that Ibiyeomie blasted Daddy Freeze with name-calling.
Reacting via his Facebook handle, Reno said Daddy Freeze is not ‘a bastard’, crying as he wrote below:
Dear Pastor David Ibiyeomie, “Christ was insulted, but He did not insult back. “When they hurled their insults at him, he did not retaliate”-1 Peter 2:23. DaddyFreeze was wrong to say what he did on Oyedepo. But my Christian brother, you are even more in the wrong to have insulted him. He is no bastard. I know both his mother and father. His father is a Muslim Yoruba businessman that has contributed much to Nigerian society and his mother is the first female vice-chancellor of a Nigerian private university and a Professor of law. By calling him a bastard, you not only insulted him. You insulted his mother. Christ would never have done that! Daddy Freeze is cantankerous. He is sometimes (but not always) a credit to Christianity, but too often, he spoils that by engaging in needless controversy for the sake of notoriety and social media following.
Face him and challenge him on that, whether publicly or privately (I do it privately). But it is not right to insult him seeing as Scripture says “a servant of the Lord must not quarrel”-2 Timothy 2:24. Finally, a child who does not know his father is not a bastard. There are illegitimate parents. But there are no illegitimate children. God helped me build an orphanage. I did not steal to build it. I did not build it with donations from church members. I built it with my own money. How do you think my children will feel to hear what you said knowing they were abandoned at birth? They get enough of this from children at their school. Now, they are hearing it from you, a man who should know better. I am in tears as I write this.”
