No punishment too severe for rapists, won’t stop praying until they’re exposed — Pastor Adeboye

Pastor E. A. Adeboye

The General Overseer (GO) of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has said that there is no punishment to severe to be meted to rapists, and as such, he won’t stop praying until they are brought to justice.

Pastor Adeboye, who lamented recent rape cases and the killing of the victims by their assailants after the dastard act, said, himself and his prayer warriors won’t rest in prayers until the rapists are fished out and accorded due punishment.

The cleric, speaking during a live programme on Dove TV, on Sunday, condemned the rapists as agents of the devil who shouldn’t be tolerated within human societies.

“Myself and prayer warriors will not rest in prayers until the perpetrators of this evil are brought to justice, not only in Nigeria but all over the world.

“Everyone who has ever committed rape, particularly in Nigeria and the world, the all-knowing God will fish them out.

“As much as I hate death sentence, I think any form of punishment that will be given to a rapist cannot be considered too severe.

“Anyone, who ever thinks of raping someone again, the almighty God will stop them even before they do so and if they insist God will take them away.

“I am calling on every Christian all over the world to please join me in this prayer,” Pastor Adeboye said.

He described rape as bad act, which is unbiblical and could leave a permanent scare on the victim for the rest of her life.

“There is no pain that can be compared to the pain on the parents whose daughter had been raped,” Adeboye said, as he urged the faithful never to embrace the spirit of “good enough” because it could be an enemy of greatness.

“Your journey to the top begins when you start sensing that what you call ‘good’ is not enough, the greatest enemy is when you think that you are already great while you are still incomplete.

“Your journey to the top begins when you become aware that God reserves the best till the last; the journey to the top begins from your knees and acknowledging Christ as your lord and saviour,” Pastor Adeboye said.

For a righteous living worthy of meriting an eternal home with God, Pastor Adeboye urged those who have not surrendered their lives to Jesus Christ, to merit the eternal homes God had designed for them.
