Reno Omokri, a controversial author and former media advisor to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, has reacted to Winners Chapel’s recent dismissal of some of its pastors.
The sack letter is in place, according to the controversial author, since the pastors did not discuss money in the letter, but rather church growth, which is critical in the spread of the gospel.

I read the letter from Winners Chapel and it did not mention anything about money. Rather, it used the word “church growth”. Christ called us to engage in evangelism-Matthew 28:18-20. Any pastor that fails at that core duty should be sacked. This is what Christ told us in Matthew 25:14-29.
The sacked pastor who went to the press after releasing a live video is playing on your emotions. He is not considering that he is undermining the faith of believers.
In John 15:16, Christ said “I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit.” Now, ask yourself what the consequence of not bearing fruit is. Christ answered that question in John 15:2 “Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away”.
This is why the only thing Christ ever cursed in His lifetime on Earth is the fig tree that bore no fruit-Mark 11:14.
