Daniel Olukoya, General Overseer of the Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries (MFM) has said that females who wear trousers to church are inviting satanic infiltration.
He said this in an interview with Saturday Punch. Olukoya, who attracted backlash after saying Christmas is not biblical, when asked about women wearing trousers, added that there ought to be a difference between those going for beauty contests, clubs and brothels, and those going to serve God.
“We should be able to differentiate between those going for beauty contests, to brothels, clubs and night parties from those going to serve God in church.
“An MFM member is armoured in the garments of warfare, repelling and boomeranging the arrows of the enemy, rather than being clad in devices inviting satanic infiltration,” he said.
Olukoya also said Nigerians are corrupt despite being religious because they are not righteous. He said it would be impossible for the country to move forward if its nationals do not embrace righteousness.
He added that the country would become one to be identified with if residents could accept righteousness as a way of life.
“There is a difference between being religious and being righteous. If a nation is populated by men and women who go to churches and mosques but Christlikeness is alien to them and their lifestyles, in that situation, you will have ungodly acts, corruption and so on. The Bible says that righteousness exalts a nation and sin is a reproach to any people (Proverbs 14:34).
“I pray that God will make all Nigerians righteous, in Jesus’ name.
“So, I advise all Nigerians to forsake sin and embrace righteousness and God will do wonders in our land economically, politically and socially, repositioning us on the global map as a nation to be identified with,” he said.
