The General Overseer of The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has called on Christians to get jaw bones of cows for self-defence, rather than use guns.

Adeboye, offered this clarification while explaining his position on self-defence for Christians, said Samson was victorious in biblical times with jaw bones, and not with an AK-47.

The respected cleric offered the clarification on Sunday in a message, ‘Made for the top’, during the church’s monthly thanksgiving service monitored by Africa Daily News, New York.

‘I never asked Christians to buy guns, Christians don’t need guns. Samson did not fight with an AK-47. Don’t go and buy guns,’ Adeboye said.

Adeboye bemoaned how difficult children could be taught about the exploits of Samson in a Sunday school, adding that jaw bones should suffice.

He added, ‘I have always wondered how you demonstrate to children in Sunday school, but the best way is to show children using the jaw bone of a cow, don’t buy guns.’

Commenting further on how to escape from danger, especially as it relates to sexual harassment against women and men, Adeboye stressed that they should show diligence, hard work to get to the top and not wait to be contaminated.

Adeboye, had over the weekend called on Christians to start defending themselves against attackers.
