VIEWSHOT: Tunde Bakare – Is it appropriate to engage in politicisation on the altar of worship of God?
Tunde Bakare, a Nigerian Prophetic-Apostolic pastor and the senior pastor of Citadel Global Community Church in Lagos, Nigeria, has come under fire after praising Bola Tinubu, the national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) during a sermon he titled ‘An Idle Man’s Brain Is The Devil’s Workshop.’ He lauded the former Lagos State governor for the battle he fought and won for the Yorubas.
“Like Jephthah the Gileadite, he has fought many battles on behalf of the Yoruba people and won despite his rough beginning and God does not need anybody’s permission to put such in his hall of fame despite their past deeds and ancestry. Despite his growing up challenges, the dents and the detours of his life, he like Jephthah delivered Lagos State and nearly all the southwest states from the onslaught of the PDP from 1999 to 2007.
“Truth be told, without his cooperation and political dexterity, the APC victory at the polls in 2015 and 2019 would have been impossible,” Pastor Bakare was quoted.
According to the Bible, an altar is a place of sacrifice and a power point to draw spiritual and supernatural strength. Altars are places of separation where we separate ourselves to God and separate from curses and generational traits.
