COZA Abuja Senior Pastor in sex scandal

Biodun Fatoyinbo

The Commonwealth of God Assembly, COZA, pastor is yet to officially react to the allegation.

Traffic around luxury Thisday Dome where Commonwealth of God Assembly, (COZA) holds services was unusually light Sunday morning.

The long fleet of expensive cars parked by congregants had been replaced by few cars and a handful of loitering congregants. It looked as if life had been scrapped from the hitherto bustling church.

This was not unexpected.

In the last few days, the church’s Senior Pastor has been entangled in an allegation of infidelity with a former member of the church that has snowballed into a huge sexual scandal that many say might destabilise the church.

Barely 48 hours after a former female congregant and worker of the COZA, Ese Walter, confessed to having had an affair with the church’s Senior Pastor, Biodun Fatoyinbo, another former female member has come out with claims of her alleged encounter with the pastor in a hotel in Lagos.

Ms. Walter had sent social media alight after she alleged in a blog post that she had a week-long sexual relationship with the pastor during his London visit.

According to Ms. Walter, after arranging for a taxi to pick up Mr. Fatoyinbo from the airport during his visit to London, the pastor invited her to his hotel and offered her alcohol.

“You don’t have to be shy Ese, even if it’s alcohol, feel free and order what you want,” she claimed the pastor said.

Subsequently, she said, Mr. Fatoyinbo invited her to sit on his laps. When she hesitated, she claimed the pastor told her to relax saying: “feel free Ese.”

According to her, they kissed and soon were embroiled in a week-long amorous affair that left Ms. Walter feeling abused and manipulated.

Ms. Walter alleged that Mr. Fatoyinbo had dismissed the guilt she had, saying: “I will teach you a level of grace that you don’t understand.”

Ms. Walter, who admitted that the relationship was consensual, however said she felt “abused and manipulated” by Mr. Fatoyinbo and the fleeting manner the church’s leadership handled the affair after she raised it with another pastor in the church.

She said she went public with the story when she could no longer withstand the “psychological abuse.”

“I made an effort to reach out to him because I realized the right thing to do was talk to an elder in the church and seek some sort of remedy to a wrong I believed had been done me. Instead, Pastor Flo said Pastor Biodun had confessed to him and they had ‘talked’ about it and somehow that was supposed to be OK. He asked what it was I wanted coming to talk to him about it when I did, I told him I realized what happened between Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo and I was wrong and not just that I felt abused and manipulated. I also said I thought it was wrong for Pastor Biodun to go on preaching without taking time to deal with his personal character flaws. I said I thought he was danger to all the young women that attended the church.”

In a narration that is close to that described by Ms. Walter, Franca (the second female) has described how close she came to being led into a sexual relationship with the embattled pastor. Franca claimed the pastor, under the pretext of doing some computer based work for him, lured her into Wheatbaker Hotel, Lagos.

According to Franca, when she resisted Mr. Fatoyinbo’s advances, he rebuked her for acting like a “small illiterate uneducated girl.” She claimed in order to convince her to sleep with him Mr. Fatoyinbo had described his wife as a “postcard…pretty on the outside but flat and empty upstairs. He said sex with her was like having sex with a cold dead fish.”

She claimed Mr. Fatoyinbo, whom she described as “randy goat with a deflated erection”, left her after she threatened to accuse him of rape.

Franca claims she has recordings and pictures taken from the hotel as proof of the encounter and threatens to publish it if the Pastor denies the incident.

An alleged incorrigible philanderer, Mr. Fatoyinbo is no stranger to alleged sexual waywardness. From the inception of the church in Ilorin, the pastor, who the church’s official website describes as “a preacher with uncommon prophetic insight into the word” has been trailed by allegations after allegations of unbridled sexual advances to female congregants.

In one case in Ilorin, it was alleged that he had sexual relationship with two sisters to the point of impregnating one of them. Nothing came out this allegation.

In another of such allegation Mr Fatoyinbo, was accused of having an amorous relationship with a married woman.

The pastor who has also been described as a “power dresser” for his love of smart and designer outfits runs the Abuja headquarters of COZA with his wife Modele.

Its congregants are mostly young, educated, hip, and stylishly dressed. It also runs live webcasts of its services.

Online Scandal

The allegation has spiralled into a massive scandal on social media. While some have called for caution asking people to wait for Mr. Fatoyinbo’s version of the alleged affair, others have dismissed Ms. Walter as loose and attention-seeking.

Some others have taking to satirising the entire affair. Innuendoes such as “www.anotherlevelofgrace.co.za,” “Henny and coke” and “come and sit on my lap” among the most popular.

A Facebook page “Stop This Abuse in the Name of God Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo” already has over a hundred likes.

Mr. Fatoyinbo is yet to officially respond to the allegation, but the Twitter timeline of some congregants at the church suggest he gave a peripheral mention of the scandal during service.

“I’m sure you read a lot about me on twitter and social networks. You can’t imagine how many people have called me,” tweeted Seun Salami (@SeunWrites) quoting the pastor.

The pastor however concluded his sermon by saying: “when we asked God, God said be quiet. Thank you!”

It is hard to tell whether that was an indication that he will never respond to the allegation.

    The Church’s official website describes the Pastor as “a preacher with uncommon prophetic insight into the word”. Wonderful!

    But wait a minute, is the Church not right? A Pastor who invites a lady to sit on his laps and says his own wife is a dead wood is surely one with “uncommon” prophetic insight.

    Continent Nigeria, wonders shall never end.

    Sanusi, why did you smoke another man’s wife?
    “I don’t respond to personal attacks,” the CBN man answered.

    Fatoyinbo, did you speak of grace after going under sheets with your church girl?
    “We asked God, he said keep quiet,” the pastor responded!

    What’s all these crap? We need answers guys, brave up and face your accusers if you’re clean, or forever perish in your iniquity and shame.

      My dear Tunji, just wanna draw your attention to the details of the scripture u just quoted. When Jesus Christ made the statement, the acused in question was not in denial. She had already been declared guilty. So if I am to understand you, are you saying that Pastor Biodun has been declared guilty?
      If no, then the scripture u just quoted is of no relevance in this context.

    Fool, the church was fully jammed this morning . People worship God in COZA not man and not any pastor. ONE MILLION ESE WALTERS FROM THE PIT OF HELL cannot bring the church down. Pastor Biodun has never claimed to be a saint, and we LOVE HIM with his imperfections, even if the allegations are right as said, the church will stand and thrive and the gates of hell cannot prevail, even if you want, don’t only write put pictures , call names, eat poison…. the church of God is moving on. So, ms Ese come out with your evidence , we are waiting, they mean nothing, even if you are saying the truth, you were not raped or tricked, you enjoyed it so much you kept going back, now you feel dumped and want a pound of flesh, “I’ve never seen a honest accuser” not even their father satan…I beg keep up with the publicity stunt for COZA….

  • Dr Pat Kolawole Awosan

    What is the problem with these immoral image promoters-Nigerian pastors?Either Winners Chapel pastor Oyedepo who is currently under investigation for looting over four million dollars tithes,or others are accused of sex scandal and other criminal practices.
    Nigerian churches are business centers where their founders run them as making making avenues-stealing in the name of God and sexual harass church members wives.God do not take money from anybody as Almighty give his precious blessing and anointment free with no charge.
    But Pastors,G.O. and arch-bishops will face their judgement before Almighty Jehovah God at the end.Corruption practices reside in Nigeria originated

    • Ayodele kut

      Watch your tongue Dr Pat! respect the anointing please

      • Ehi Zai

        which anointing? make we hear word jaare. Nigerians are spiritually blind. I am not gonna judge Biodun, yes! Biodun…thats his name. lets drop this whole man of GOD crap/nonsense. we are all children of GOD, equal before GOD, all anointed

    sometimes when you see a local farmer whose life revolves around subsistence agriculture system you might be tempted to pity him/her, that whoa, how this life has been cut off from the vast things life has to offer.
    but there is no quality/quantity of life from the experiences we go through.
    when even a local person struggles against life’s fate but have a correct perspective of what life is all about; s/he lives fully and fulfilled.
    my concern is; HOW MANY WILL MISS THEY WAY BECAUSE OF THIS ERROR.
    SURELY there is strength in the grace of God. it is not about report of many respected leaders crashing and not seeing those who could be pillar of strength to the upcoming youth to follow.
    YOUNG MEN AND WOMEN use your brain- respect servants of God; but use your brain. don’t allow others to use their brain to run your life.
    release the offender, CHOOSE LOVE not hAtE!

  • paul

    deflated penis that is wonderful and he is at lose

  • Dankasa

    And where are those protesting the alleged child marriage in Nigeria, aren’t you fight for these young girls who are abused sexually by their Pastors? I know that Church (and many more of its kind) will surely go down one day. Innaddeen innallaha Alislam ( the only religion of Allah is Islam).

    • Abasko

      The pastor is a hypocrite, fine, he has been exposed and point of correction he wasn’t sleeping with a minor, but it will probably be better if you will protest against pedophilia even if occurs in your religion.

      • Alakan

        Religion is surely a virus!!! I wonder why Dankasa is talking religion here when we’re addressing an alleged case of ‘uncalled for attitude’ of a supposed man of God. Mind you, its no abuse like the lady claimed, she’s surely a major. Who knows if she lures the ‘man of God’ into doing it? Whatever it is, don’t even start with religion saga here.

        • ada

          This man of God is a serial offender who always take cover behind his beautiful wife and faithful followers. Why can he just pray for some self contol not every food should be eaten u may be allegic to some pastor.

    • Ayodele kut

      Don’t even go there, we serve a God of mercy who offered to die for us that our sins might be forgiven not a god who expects you to die for him to make your so called …….all in the name of Ji…..(a word is enough…)

  • Dankasa

    So no more traffic or security molestation around Benue Plaza junction, Abuja, ko? Allah is great! There was a day I was driving and was nearly been shot by these hired solders around this COZA Church because I didn’t know what was happening while trying to negotiate the junction on my way to Transcop Hilton and I said “God dey”. Today this is what is happening to this Church and its leadership. Wa makarumakaran kubbaran, wallahu khairun makirun!!!!

    • Dankasa2

      Don’t even go there…. You guys block EVERYWHERE during Juma’at prayers.

      • johndoe

        exactly …muslimi block even federal high way in the name of prayer.

    • Ayodele kut

      Please shut it up and speak English. You do worse things and don’t try to make it another religious fracas. opportunist!

  • Ajantala

    The best thing these women should have done is secretly record Videos of the incidence and post it on You Tube. With that there will be no “He says, I say.” If you know someone is destroying the kingdom of God you profess to worship, why are you hiding the videos if you have one? If you have a consensual sex, why are you blaming your partner?

  • sherry

    Why is everyone holding the pastor solely responsible? The girl was a willing participant, yet she wants to declare herself a victim. It takes two…she was a consenting adult and carried on with him for a week!! If she felt violated…why did she continue? If she had any dignity and class..she would keep her mouth shut.

    • Gary Ebiegberi Inainfe

      @ sherry she is a victim and should say it out loud, the said man used his position to manipulate her and that is abuse

  • Concerned citizen

    sherry! you are ignorant and you lack depth. this your weak devotion to man instead of God will make you the next victim. We have continually respected men of God so much that we find ourselves vulnerable and under these kind of circumstances. You are probably one of those girls who, when you pastor invites you to his house to sweep his bedroom, without listening to the Holy Spirit, you’ll be there before day break. I do not wish to acust any blame, but more this Man of God than Ese, he was dead at fault

  • ItohowoWilliams

    Although, personally, I don’t doubt Ese’s claims, it would be good to hear the pastor’s version of this story. Until then, I leave you with the following thoughts:

    Men of God (pastors, reverends, Imams) are not infallible; they are humans, just like the rest of us, and are therefore liable to make mistakes.

    I don’t c any form of abuse here miss Walter, u consented as an adult. I av been abused before so as a woman I understand d meaning of that word. U had d option of slapping him and walking away that day u sat on his laps ma’am.
    I am not supporting d pastor, neither am i against ur story, but Pls do not call this an abuse Bcos u weren’t raped.

  • Oladipupo Akin

    I am totally disappointed in premium times for telling lies here to make money and for ignorants making comments about what they’ve not heard a balanced story on, c’mon wake up, why judge with one side..one thing I know, people worship God in COZA and not man, and we worship in spirit and in truth and God is blessing us, church was fully jammed yesterday, dint know where premium times got their story and for DAnkasa u ain’t seen nothing yet.

    Wait a minute, Pastor Biodun has never claimed to be a saint, in fact we see him as an imperfect man and one million Ese Walters from the pit of hell cannot bring the church of God down, even if she is saying the truth , the church will handle it and move on and the gates of hell shall not prevail, if you want, come with picture, come with videos , the church has come to stand , thanks for noticing the luxurious cars in COZA , dint have one when I joined , and I have some now , why not come around and know the secret ……”I’ve never seen an honest accuser ” not even their father satan….

    • Kpof_Kpof_Man

      Akin, So you went there so that you can buy a big car. You are lost man.

      • Oladipupo Akin

        My God is not poor u can’t be in a moving train and remain stagnant, if poverty is one of the fruits of the spirit for you , congrats….where in my statement did I write “I went there to buy a big car” ? wake up and smell the coffee, leave the church to deal with the issues they have and use your valuable time to deal with the log in your own eyes..

        • Ehi Zai

          Akin……neither are material things a fruit of the spirit. what make one rich is not the amount of money they have……even Dolly Parton knows that. Your riches are meant to be in heaven but we all gather up riches and material stuff for ourselves here. Money…..prayer points and sermons are even centred around Money, power and fame. Few people preach about the fruit of the spirit, giving of alms or even missionary work.

          Its a shame Christianity has lost its true purpose

    • leke

      My dear brother, are you here:

      For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers, specially they of the circumcision: Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre’s sake. One of themselves, even a prophet of their own, said, The Cretians are alway liars, evil beasts, slow bellies. This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith; Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth” (Titus 1:10-14).
      ESE SAW the COZA leader as a deceiver AND SHE HAS SHOWED an apparent COURAGE TO MAKE THE PUBLIC AWARE OF HIM.WHY DIDN T COZA or its accused leader respond and rebuke her swiftly to help the public that might be led astray with her “false” accusation? Is COZA deprived of the sense of urgency the Holy Spirit put in the passage below just so that the Way of Christ “is not spoken evil of “(2Pet 2:1-2) :

      “But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. ALWAYS BE PREPARED to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect..”( 1 PETER 3:15).
      Akin, are you here:
      “SILVER AND GOLD I do not have, but what I have I give to you, in THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST of Nazareth..(Acts 3:6). Peter prioritized Jesus’ name above silver and gold. And Akin, are you boasting of COZA’s silver and gold when this Holy Name is being stained by the suspicious silence of your big guys in COZA?
      Akin, are you here?

      • Oladipupo Akin

        If you know scriptures this much you should be sound enough to wait and hear the other side of the story before you judge. Thanks .

        • leke

          Akin dear,
          “But not for AN HOUR did we give way and submit to them; in order that the Good News might continue with you in its integrity”(Galatians 2:4-5)

          Should it take SO LONG for Biodun to publish the robust reply in defense of the faith and for the safeguarding of the faith of individuals who now think “aha, so these so-called Christian ogas sef just dey pretend say dem holy pass. Why we go dey suffer our “tin” wen our oga wey sabi God pass sef dey service their own secretly” Ese Walter allegations shouldn’t be allowed to linger FOR THIS LONG, to harden unbelievers weak christains against the Truth. How long does it take for light to dispel darkness? Is COZA lost for words? Remember,you can t get lost on if you re on STRAIGHT road. I m used to non-transparency and boju-boju in Nigerian politics. COZA wouldn’t like that to be identified with Christ’s insititution.

          Nothing new.The even the saints are hardly saved (1Peter 4:18) Christians sin (1John 1:8 ). But the office of the Pastor is not for just any Christian but for the ones who have been OUTSTANDING in the struggle against sin.They don t score 100%, but they have consistently scored between 70% and above( the grade A guys). And that s why God qualifies them to lead others. No ABSOLUTELY perfect guys (otherwise the sacrifice of Christ is needless). But there needs to be THE MATURE guys modeling for others(Hebrews 5:14).Guys that others would look up to, whose excellent MORAL examples would inspire the ordinary members to “eat the frog” of self-control and imitate them
          (1 Peter 5:3).

          “….So a PASTOR must be a man whose life is above reproach. He must be faithful to his wife. He must exercise self-control, live wisely, and have a good reputation. He must enjoy having guests in his home, and he must be able to teach… (1 Timothy 3:1-2)

          If Biodun HAS BEEN such, it shouldn’t take AN HOUR for COZA to

          “cast down” and “bring to captivity” to Christ all misleading imaginations and the false thoughts that Ese Walter has raised(2Corinthians 10:4-6) against him

          and if Biodun HAS NOT BEEN such, COZA should BY NOW have lovingly disciplined him (1 Corinthians 15:10-11) so others may be clear that COZA is with Christ on the same page of moral leadership of Christians in the midst of a morally depraved world.

          “But those PASTORS who are sinning you are to reprove BEFORE EVERYONE, so that the others may take warning (1Timothy 5:20)

          What takes COZA so long in responding either to debunk or confirm and discipline as the Holy Spirit says ?, is the question.

          Forget me, my comments are not personal, like some holier-than-thou show-off. I just know that when we fail at some things and are depending on the promises of Christ who will overrule our imperfections by His own perfect righteousness( Romans 7:23-24; 5:8-10), we can’t drop all efforts and just go with the flow of sin (ROMANS 6:1) We must do the things we can (James 4:7; Mark 14:8) when IT IS TIME TO DO IT(Hebrews 12:4) . What is stopping COZA from responding (Acts 8:36), what are they waiting for(Acts 22:16), my brother, Akin?

          • ella

            I don’t see Leke being judgemental or casting aspersions here. He has spoken the truth. No true christian shoiuld celebrate at the fall of a fellow christian. If Esse’s allegations are false or true,either way,COZA should respond to it. If a man kneels before God,its proof positive that he shall stand before men. No man is perfect. If that so,there would have been no need for the ultimate sacrifice of Christ. Leke,God bless you real good for your comments!

          • Ehi Zai

            @Leke….i am a fan of yours.

      • Ayodele kut

        You know so much about scriptures but with no revelation of it. slow down and think, what does God think about this? How is He handling this? Remember David did worse and was still referred to as a man after God’s heart. for all your troubles he might be in good standing with God as we speak. So don’t be too quick to bring judgement upon yourself.
        Remember what David did when he could have killed Saul that was tormenting him. that’s a food for thought!

        • leke

          God has already provided His instructions in the New testament on how his people should treat this kind of case. Why wait for special new revelation? Biodun Fatoyinbo knows right away if he slept with Ese or not. He isn’t saying he needs a revelation for him to confirm whether he did it or not. So if he didn’t do it, he should just publicly refute Ese with convincing proofs so he removes the stain on the Great Name he wears that is already a question in the mind of the public so they don’t speak against the name of Christ as if Biodun is a hypocrite (2 Peter 2:1-2). That way everyone will know Ese is a wicked liar and the shame may push her to repent. But the response on Twitter above which Biodun is said to have given sounds horribly WEAK in the face of the serious allegations because it does not have anything like the spirit of love of power and of sound mind given to Christians(2 Timothy 1:7); there’s no spiritual significance in any pulpit as far as Christianity is concerned. What makes the Christian assembly special is that Christians gather there and God specially presents himself there because of their will to worship Him whether there is pulpit or not. So, pulpit is nothing, it s no excuse not to speak. the Christian assembly is in fact the best place to resolve such an issue 1 Corinthians 6:1-4. Paul openly would defend the ministry Christ gave him when his personal enemies try to discredit him(2Corinthians 2:17, 4:2; 11:5-16). He defends his ministry also in relation to false allegations of non-Christians who want to discredit him before the citizenry as a criminal (Acts 26:1-32). If Biodun’s defense is not convincing, COZA is to investigate the allegations (1 Thessalonians 5:21)

          and publicly discipline the guilty party (1 Corinthians 15:10-11; 1 Timothy 5:20). So what is hard in all this that you need an additional direction to deal with? It s the Ogas that influences the masses to depend on them to reveal God ‘s will .You know it the cheapest kind of “trying to hide behind one finger” to say that God has not already provided instructions on this issue as if Christianity is new developing system or that different rules apply at different times. The God that Paul preach, the God of the new testament will not ask his servant to “keep quiet” when the honesty of the Christian faith is being questioned by the public due to an allegation supposed to be false. You can see from the above passages what Christian practices are. You are free to choose between Biodun’ s witness that God asks him to be quiet and Paul’s witness that God wants him to cast down arguments and anything that would challenge his Christian ministry as stated in all the passages above(Galatians 2:4-5; 2 Corinthians 10:5)

          ON NEEED FOR ADDITIONAL REVELATIONS TO ESTABLISH CHRISTIAN SPIRITUAL GUIDELINES OR TO UNDERSTAND THE BIBLE

          Come on, my friend AYO, you know the Scriptures are even designed by God to be understandable to a KID to a very large extent:
          “and how from infancy you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus….”(2 Timothy 3:15-16).
          the Bible is not a cult book or an esoteric book. it is addressed by God to human rationality and ability to learn (1 Corinthians 4:6; 2Timothy 2:15)
          Forget the thought that you need some special revelation to understand the scriptures as God ADDRESSES TO ALL MEN and not limited to some “special people” who have received “special revelation” to understand it. It is a public document that is sufficient for understanding God and what he requires from all his creatures (John 20:30-31; Mark 16:15-16) including his church. Jesus Christ died so that every common man and woman will have easy access to know God without needing some professionals or special priests(Jeremiah 31:34; 1Peter 2:9). If you are a Christian you are a priest! He has done this for us by inspiring his first set of men to write the New Testament for us. Mathew, John, Mark, Paul, James, Luke and other writers of the Bible are those entrusted with revealing to you the will of God under the New Covenant system through their writings(2 Peter 1:16, 19-21).Please fell free to doubt and reject me or anybody that comes after them if we claim to have got some revelation about how the church of God should handle matters and our new revelation is different from what the New testament writers revealed to all men as the word of Christ.

          “But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let them be under God’s curse!”(Galatians 1:8-9)

          “If anyone thinks that he is a prophet, or spiritual, he should acknowledge that the things I am writing to you are a command of the Lord”(1Corinthians 14:37)

          You wouldn’t support Biodun or anybody’s claim of a “new spiritually authorized method” of dealing with scandal or any other issue that is different from the direct instructions of the Bible on the issues. (See reply to Akin Oladipupo below to read what God has already said for the church to do in such a matter of sin of a member or false allegations against the faith ). We can’t place 2013 new revelations above the Christian system of practices that God revealed to the whole world through his first century writers and you have this system of faith in the new testament and we are warned to practice it practiced till Christ comes:
          “Beloved, while I was making every effort to write you about our common salvation, I felt the necessity to write to you appealing that you contend earnestly for the faith which was ONCE FOR ALL handed down to the saints”(Jude 1:3).

          “I am writing these things to you, hoping to come to you before long; but in case I am delayed, I WRITE SO THAT you will know how one ought to conduct himself in the household of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and support of the truth.…(1 Timothy 3:14)

          “…But evil men and impostors will proceed from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived. You, however, CONTINUE in the things you have learned and become convinced of, knowing from whom you have learned them, and that from childhood you have known the sacred writings which are able to give you the wisdom that leads to salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus (2 Timothy 3:1-16)”

          Paul didn’t want us to change the guidelines for a modern revelation, he wanted them to be passed down from him to generation after generation so that Christians of all time will be one faith and one spirit.

          “And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also..”(2 Timothy 2:2).

          “So the plan of God is first century apostle teach men, then men teach men, them men teach men, then men teach and so on until Christ comes.

          So what about your personal revelations? Well, you need to know that God will not reveal a Christianity practice to anyone that contradicts what He revealed to the inspired writers. 1Corinthians 14:33 God doesn’t create confusion. Christ prayed that believers of all time to be one on the same platform of what the APOSTLES will teach them:
          “I do not ask on behalf of these alone, but for those also who believe in Me through their word; 21that they may all be one; even as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, that they also may be in Us, so that the world may believe that You sent Me( John 17: 20-21).

          But ask yourself : are believers all one today? What divides them? Majorly it’s because individuals have claimed God gave them a new revelation to found a new type of Christianity instead of them to study the Bible and re-apply the pattern of the Church in the Bible. Adeboye or whoever founded RCCG receives a revelation for his denomination that doesn’t condemn women using earrings and make-ups and Kumuyi receives his own for his own Deeper Life denomination that condemns that use of earrings and make-up. Oschoffa received his own revelation for Cele that mandates white garment for Christian worship while Ayo Babalola received his own revelation for CAC that is OK with worshippers in different types of mufti in different colours. Is Christ divided (1Corinthians 1:10-13)? As you can see instead of people to carefully study the bible and keep re-establishing for their own generation the pattern of simple Christianity and Church system that God clearly revealed to all men in the New testament, they keep looking up to some new revelations. Worse still, ignorant or stubborn individuals, the masses basically, have decided to blindly follow those ones who claim new revelations to found a new ministry without bothering to check their message against those of the New Testament writers who have already reveaedl the Christian church and its practices to the whole world. The New testament writers warned that Satan, the author of confusion, and his demons will provide messages about the church and its beliefs contrary to what God has already instructed through Paul and the other writers of the New testament and will seduce the people away from the will of Christ for his church (1 Timothy 4:1-5; Jude 3-4, 2John 9-11). This prophecy has continued to be fulfilled.
          “But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his cunning,
          so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.”( 2Corinthians 11:3; 2Corinthians 11:14)

          Reading the written word and practicing it, John says you will have life in Christ. John 20:30-31
          Carefully study the written word and you will be perfect and be thoroughly furnished for every good work ( 2Timothy 3;16) so says Paul; so what more do you need to be saved? New revelations? No, except you choose to belief that on your own. As far back as about 2000 years ago, God has given you in the new testament writings all you and everybody needs to have for a perfect Christianity (2 Peter 1:3-11).

          Yes, some things may be HARD to understand in the New testament writings(2Peter 3:16) but not IMPOSSIBLE to understand because it is only when you honestly, diligently,continuously prayerfully study that those HARD STUFF your mind will be opened to them. It s often like that for ordinary textbooks or study items but more research or reflections help us understand. God doesn’t ban the use of our reasoning in learning about him from the scriptures, he encourages it (HEBREWS 5:14). You wouldn’t carelessly zone out and expect some “special divine revelation” to understand that Jesus was born in Bethlehem or that we should obey God rather than men when men say to do what God says not to do .Same way you can learn the whole of the Bible.

          Trust God who ‘s given you the Bible to lead you to him. Work with other people who share the simple new Testament Christianity revealed to honest hearts in the new testament. This is your rest. Outside it is confusion and endless and useless labor.

          God has told his people, “Here is a place of rest; let the weary rest here. This is a place of quiet rest.” But they would not listen.( Isaiah 28:12)

            dear friend,
            thanks for what you took your time to write. but hey! you are getting it all wrong. remember this quote ”let him that has not sinned before cast the first stone”. I am a servant of God as I believe you are, but instead of casting aspersions on one of our own who possibly might have fallen into a trap, why not stand by him and pray for him, instead of allowing some unbelieving opportunists to take advantage of it and blaspheme the one we Preach. I only called for caution friend. lets join hands with him and pray for strength at this trying period, his message has won a lot to Christ remember! I am not a member of his church but a member of the body of Christ. God bless you sir and enrich your coast. Amen!

            Please understand that my comment has nothing personal against Biodun or COZA, the discussion just offers opportunity to focus people on the Christianity revealed in the New testament and how simple, reasonable, adequate and beautiful it is in handling life issues versus the complexities, confusion, and emotional junks massively practiced in our time.

            I had only emphasized THE OTHER THINGS (beyond praying and supporting) that God says to do if he s free of the accusation and if he’s not free. Prayer and sympathy would be like attempting to shave with banana to avoid blade bites if unaccompanied with the rest of God’s instructions to discipline. Prayer and sympathy would not replace taking God-given action steps
            I have witnessed a case of a respected Christian coming out, very broken, to confess sexual sins. I burst into tears. I could feel his self-reprimanding actions and embarrassment; he had requested to be freed from taking leading tasks in the church till he s “sure” God is happy with him to lead. We were all heavy-hearted in sympathy. We encouraged him that the confession has healed his soul and that God is always open-armed to the broken-hearted. I did witness another one who kept bluffing and lying until he was confronted with live proofs. We also sympathized but we took the disciplinary actions as requested in the Bible so we can have him sympathize with himself and be restored too. He did. And all of us are happy today.( 2Corinthians 2:6-8 following 1 Corinthians 5:1-13). Whom the father loves he chastises, those He doesn’t chastise are those He considers bastards.
            Ok, I had assumed you are in COZA. Thanks for clarifying. It s helpful to understand your sympathy for Biodun as someone who leads too. I personally believe it s the least a christian can do to restore SOMEONE in love and humility IF such a person is found erring (Galatians 6:1). That someone is to be treated with love and respect whether or not they are “my fellow pastors”-let it not be that we are holding the gospel with partiality(James 2:1-9) or that we take sides not because of the truth but because this guy is MY TYPE or in my SOCIAL CLASS. Only Christ deserves such a loyalty from us because he s TRUTH.

            “My beloved is radiant and ruddy, distinguished among ten thousand.”(Songs of Solomon 5:10)

            God bless you and all of yours, Ayodele. Love

      How is this story one sided? The author has told you what the two parties said. One has claimed to be used and she says she has evidence, the other said God told Him not to talk do you want them to enter his mind and remove his thoughts for you to see? Men of God sin too you know, they are MEN NOT GOD. If the pastor has done something wrong he should apologize, he owes it to his congregation. If Ese is lying she should apologize as well. Anyone of them could be wrong, and the pastor needs to clear the air on this issue.
      I do not think Ese Walter is trying to bring the church of God down; she is sharing her experience and she has the freedom to do so as long as she is truthful. If she is telling the truth and this has been going on for a while then it is an opportunity for others to speak up as well and an opportunity for the church to take disciplinary action and get a fresh start. Tomorrow we will all go to church where we will be taught to love God and our neighbors, yet when we get out we will throw stones at people because they are “lying” against a man of God because those of us that attend church must be “perfectly good Christians” (sarcasm intended) That was how the Catholic Church was covering the issue of abuse for years and it affected them negatively. If there is an issue like this in the church then it should be dealt with now versus later.
      If Ese Walter is being honest and the church is doing its job, she won’t be here because the church would have handled the matter appropriately.

    • Ehi Zai

      This is one of the reason I believe atheist are more intelligent that religious folks. You should not be replying to all this comments in the first instance…..If GOD is great and Mighty as the bible says, then I don’t think HE needs you to be his solicitor.
      Lets put religion aside for one second…. Biodun was just unfortunate and desperately weak. Can we stop calling him Pastor cos na this ‘Pastor’ title cause problem sef

  • Fuckinginnijaunlimited

    This “randy goat with a deflated erection” says he asked God and God said for him to be quiet? I pity all who worship pastors instead of worshipping God. This Fatoyinbo or whatever he calls himself must have an oversize ego and can operate his fraud only in Nigeria!

  • Stallion

    This Ese girl is a fool. After one full week of sex for which she must have been adequately compensated, she is still ambitious. What does she want him to do? To marry her so that she would not feel being used? Did she not know he is married? She wants him to divorce his wife? She is just out to pull him down. This is unnecessary. A fling is a fling, and a young handsome Pastor is human, and I’m sure Ese did her part to lure and encourage him, and for her to succumb on the first encounter speaks volumes of a character unworthy to talk about conscience!

  • gwobezentashi janinjaka

    He dey joke with diaspora ashewo. The man chopped and didn’t pay handsomely. After he blow y*nsh finish, he didn’t address her needs to pay her house rent and bills. Thats what this is all about. Serves him right. Ashewo girl.

  • Realistic lady

    MHhhh, some people are so quick to judge. What will happen if this turns out to be a lie? Jesus was accused wrongly, everyone condemned and chose to save the thief instead of Jesus. He died before they believed he was indeed the son of God, up until now, some still don’t.
    From Ese’s story, she seemed to be a born again Christian, why didn’t she resist the devil? Why didn’t she walk away? Okay if the pastor asked her to jump into fire, whould she have jumped? Who are we to actually judge? Is anyone without sin? Pastors don’t force people to worship them. C’mon we r adults, we need to stop blaming people for our f’ups and take responsibility for our actions!!

  • Dr. Moses A. Bamimore

    My candid advice to Pastor , as a man who had sinned before and who cannot cast a stone at another sinner, is that you come out like a man and lay it all before the Lord. Let the devil be put to shame. And give thanks to God for the ladies He is using now to sanitize you. You are already forgiven, but just let all righteousness be fulfilled. And move on. No one, but God, can put you down.

    • Amina Yahaya

      Lol. This girl had a one night stand and then felt bad…. No it was only 2 nights ( because he told her to come back as she forgot her phone…. No em sorry it was 3 night stand only (because she liked the sermon and it was cold in London anyway) …. My sincere apologies it was 4 times visit!…. Ah Ah it was 5……6……7. …. Gosh there was something sweeeeet she was determined to keep forever going here o! But I guess the fine man had to get back to his wifey !!!! SO SHE WENT MAD WITH ENVY AND HATRED. .. London Big Girl there are many other single blokes in town. PLS GO FIND YOUR MATE!!!

    • Rufus

      i beg to disagree…the devil can put you down….as he has in this case! don’t blame God for a wondering willy as Biodun’s.

  • Beebe

    pastor biodun is a man with pschological needs yet to be meet. I say this because when u look at the case of Ese, its not the !st n wont be d last for sure, u see when a bad man decides to pitch his tent with a God who is slow to anger this is what it results to. He will allow him to taste all then take it away withen a twinkle of an eye. How do i describe Pastor biodun fatoyinbo, He is a man with premature ejaculation who always wants more but cant get it! Yes i know this for a fact because i know people who were just like you Ese fifteen years ago in ilorin. they fell for the smooth talker even when he was breathing fire for “God”. i can say for a fact that Pastor Biodun fatoyinbo has in the course of duty to God sexed over 50 ladies who are too afraid of what the society will think to come out and say. Ese, u go girl the door is open n wheather pastor is speaking or not its all over. My advice if u have true calling in COZA its time to start ur own ministry. There is no curse without a cause i belive that pastor biodun is under enchantment from a group of ladies whom he had unlawfully seduced in the time past n unless he restitutes there will be more of this sort of disgrace. Biodun sees himself a a Don surrounded by his loyal soldiers well sorry to bust ur bubble iyan ogun odun ohun gbona felifeli. this is the begining u just can’t help urself Pastor! its time for u to truely seek God in secreet to help u in public.

    I want to believe Castro Moses has said everything that should be said but i just want to add this to it. Ese, i am not judging you even through i believe i can because the bible says the wise man jugdeth all things. Who is the wise man? the bible says “the fear of God is the beginning is wisdom” so i believe you should understand who the wise man is. I just want you to know that the devil has used you to achieve a great deal and in his kingdom you are being celebrated as a wonderful instrument in his hand. you told Pastor Flo about it ,Yes!!! is pastor Flo the only man of God in the Assembly? Are there no elders, councils in the church ? believe me there one thousand and one ways you could have handled the issue without making it public and getting a quality and righteous result from it. I believe me, what you have done could only mean two things, either you are childish about handling it or you just wanted a cheap publicity achieving the purpose of the devil. Which ever way, i pray that God forgive you and that this does not affect your destiny.
    Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo, If truly you have the call of God upon your life, i want you to know that their is a place of character in destiny fulfillment. the only reason why God made you a leader is because He wants you to show good example to His people. This act is evil, shameless and unfit for the man of God. This is cheer stupid lost which is costing the kingdom of God, anyway God knows the beginning to the end so He has this covered. Having said this, i want you to know that seven times a saint falls and seven times the Lord picks him up. What makes a man of God is the ability to key into romans 8: 38 – 39. I am not going to pass judgement, but it is one bad habit you need to stop and try very hard to live the romans 12: 1-9, ask God for forgiveness and restoration is certainly yours. May i tell you something? It is a father and son relationship, you dont need what people say. Hope am talking to a child of God. God be with you.

  • Redeemed

    woooooooe! betide all of you ladies through which any proclaimed or acclaimed ‘man of God’ would fall. To you girl walter, you are nothing but a cheap whore, a messenger of the devil and one of end time tools for the enemy of the Church. Your end is near and shall be most shameful. Did you not know that he is a Pastor before you started flirting with him? Look at you now trying to act abused and molested. Big shame on you and the likes of you. On the other hand, I refuse to support evil but I refuse to ‘judge’ the Pastor. I don’t know who he is, and do not need to know him but I know what the word of God says, “touch not my Anointed and do my Prophet no harm”. No one said any man is infallible including Pastors though, to whom much is given, much is expected. We are suppose to uphold them in prayer, even when they fall or tend to do the wrong things. It is not in our place to crucify or condemn them. God is able to handle them in His own way. We ( believers ) should all be very careful and stop acting like the heathens. Let he that stand take heed, lest he falls. Whether the Pastor replies or not, it is most unnecessary. There is absolutely no need for the reply, so as not to go back and forth with these agents of darkness. May The Lord rebuke you. He is only answerable to his God who knows how to chastise him when he is found wanting and not for mere mortals like you and I, to be casting stones. Enough of all these. Stop giving this Walter of a girl the attention she is seeking. She has failed completely and her punishment will be great. I don’t think she realizes what she has done to herself.
