Bishop David Oyedepo of Living Faith Church Worldwide has warned his congregation not to name the church after him when he passes away.
Oyedepo explained that the church belongs to God, not him and that buildings should not be named after him.
The clergyman told his congregation at the church’s headquarters in Ota, Ogun State, that such an action was not God’s plan.
According to Oyedepo: “After I go at a very ripe old age which I know God has the plan for me, let no man here name anything here after me because the owner never dies.
“Don’t try it, it’s not God’s will it’s not God’s plan.
“People die before they share their will in any term but this man never dies. So who will now give you the will to read?
“Lawyers, do you read the will when the man is still alive?
“You can’t divide anybody goods till after his death and Jesus the owner of the church ever liveth. So where will you divide his will? That time won’t come”.
