The General Superintendent of Deeper Christian Life Ministry (DCLM), Pastor William Kumuyi, has explained why the church changed its long stance against use of TV and other technologies.
The church was against the use of TV and other modern technologies in its early years reportedly to keep members away from wordly corruption.
But Kumuyi, in a Facebook video, explained the paradigm shift became imperative following knowledge of the agenda by forces against the gospel using technology.
The church leader who regretted late adoption of technology said: “We are going to take it away from them and use it for the propagation of the gospel.”
He added: “People are getting new methods and they are doing evil.
“These are the last days and evil is growing worse because people go beyond using their natural strengths, natural technology, they use telephones, they use the media, they use all these connections, the Zoom and all these things to expand the evil they are doing.
“If those messengers of Satan are using the present-day technology and they are expanding, how about you?”
The preacher is now known to have changed his stand on a lot of issues bordering on technology.
Wide criticism greeted his use of a private jet and a limousine to a crusade in September 2021.
But Kumuyi who is bent on embracing change emphasised: “The church is waking up and we are seeing that technology is to spread the gospel, for the word of God gets everywhere.
“We will be wiser than the people of the world.
“The Lord will wake us up.”
