The Leader Of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, Primate Elijah Ayodele has lambasted the Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) for comparing President Muhammadu Buhari to Jesus Christ.
Ayodele In a statement released by his media office, described the comparison as blasphemy.
MURIC had compared Buhari to Jesus Christ , while explaining that protesters are ungrateful to the President, for honouring MKO Abiola with the recognition of June 12 as the Democracy Day.
The clergyman sent a warning to MURIC not to compare Jesus Christ to a mere mortal anymore as he sees it as a huge disrespect.
‘‘Government celebrate nonsense, an organization like MURIC is a disgrace to the religious sector, comparing Our LORD JESUS Christ to a mere mortal like President Buhari is blasphemy, if this was a Christian organization comparing someone to Mohammed (SAW), it would have become something else.
“Who is President Buhari before Jesus? This is very ridiculous, if care isn’t taken, MURIC will cause Religious crisis, the government need to work on this, it is nonsense, the group will be punished for that.
“This is why Christian leaders need to be united to stop all this stains on the body of Christ, MURIC has to apologize for that statement, can we compare Mohammed (SAW) to rat? Not even human being, we can’t.
“There is need for top Islamic leaders to watch their actions, Sheikh Gumi is the one negotiating with terrorist in the country, MURIC is already toiling a path that will result into a religious war if not well addressed. If MURIC repeats this statement again, the organization will be dealt with spiritually.
“I’m not a fan of responding to people who don’t think well but because Jesus Christ name was mentioned, I found it compulsory that I respond, I can’t sit and allow someone or an organization to compare Jesus Christ to a mere mortal.
“I expect Christian associations to have addressed this matter but it’s quite unfortunate that they are becoming government agencies, that’s why I can never belong to any of them.
If anyone should compare Mohammed to a mere mortal, He or she will be bashed seriously, What is MURIC? Who is that thing comparing Jesus Christ to ordinary Buhari? What has he done to qualify him for such comparison? I am not abusing Mr President because I honour him but I know He won’t even take that too.
“MURIC should watch their actions before they become a religious terrorist, they should also apologize to the Christian community otherwise they will be dealt with Spiritually.’’
