The General Overseer of the Living Faith Church Worldwide, Bishop David Oyedepo has said that he loves all ministers of God but he can’t be a friend to all of them.
He disclosed this in a sermon shared on the official Facebook of the church.
The popular clergyman revealed that he can’t be friends or hang around with people who say nothing can work in Nigeria adding that he is a repairer of the bridge.
Oyedepo’s comment is coming amid complaints by some Nigerians that none of the top church leaders in Nigeria attended the burial ceremony of the late Prophet TB Joshua on Friday, July 9.
Goldennationblog.com gathered that dignitaries, ministers of God attended the main laying-to-rest service for the founder of the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), however, several pastors, church owners, and religious leaders were absent at the event.
Many had expressed disappointment that top Nigerian pastors failed to identify with the deceased prophet even in death. Nigerians, however, have reacted to his statement with many supporting the man of God.

“The point he is making is Positivity and Negativity can’t be friends! Black and white don’t mix. Don’t come and misinterpret him.”
“But Jesus Christ was a friend to everyone, That’s why I love TB Joshua. He’s a friend to everyone including those that hated him.”
“Pure truth. You can’t be friends with everyone but you can love them from a safe distance.”
“Gbam!!!! When you understand the power of the tongue! You will stop saying nothing can work in Nigeria.”
