The General Leader, Cherubim and Seraphim Movement Church, Ayo Ni O,
Special Apostle Funsho Korode has urged religious leaders, as well as
Worshippers to be security conscious in their various places of
Korode who gave this charge at the 30th anniversary of the Youth
Fellowship and second year investiture anniversary of the General
Leader at the National Headquarters, Surulere, Lagos also spoke on
recent attacks and killings by gunmen in a church in Anambra State.
He urged Nigerians, as well as churches and mosques to be security conscious.
“Let those in charge of security be security conscious. We all should
be disciplined in all that we do for the country to be better a better
place for us’’, he said.
While urging them to ascertain the kind of business their member
engage in, the General leader advised religious leaders to be careful
when accepting tithes, donations and gifts from individuals.
“The attack and killings as was reported in the news has to do with
some drug barons who are now tracing each other to church. These
people are actually in the church and amazingly, they are encouraged
by some people in the church who have the lust for money.
“Many people engage in dubious businesses and often come to donate
huge amounts of money, build churches from their dubious businesses
and some religious leaders will accept it without asking questions.
This is very sad and a wrong way to go”, he lamented.
While urging religious leaders to always preach salvation and not
prosperity to worshippers, Korode claimed that in clerics preach
salvation at all times, armed robbers, drug barons, as well as
prostitutes would be touched and discourage from engaging in ungodly
The cleric also enjoined parents to train their children well and
ensure they bring the children up in the ways of God.
He added that since parents played vital role in the lives of
children; they (parents) have to build a solid foundation for the
children to live a decent life.
“A foundation must be built at an early age which must be followed
throughout the child’s adolescent years and beyond. An individual
life’s success or failure depends on the quality of parental
upbringing received when he or she was young.
“Parents and guardians are essentially responsible for the moral,
physical, social, mental and religious teachings of their children’’,
While condemning those who are preoccupied with their jobs and social
life at the detriment of the children, Korode advised parents whom he
said are the first teachers, to ensure they look out for their wards
by mapping out quality time to be with the children, as well as teach
them the right things.
