Social media users react
“Jesus never drove sinners away, He showed them concern and love before preaching the word of GOD to them. You cannot win a sinner by rebuking him, that will drive him further from GOD.”
“The problem is that religion has clouded our senses, we determine what is right and wrong through our sentimental reasoning but He came for the lost to be saved. Pastor T spoke the truth. May we always listen to understand.
“The church is not for preaching to the converted weekly, it is for kingdom influence. That is the main idea here.”

“Everything the pastor talks about always inspires me, don’t chase them, get them to improvise their song to be better and fantastic.”
“Sir, with all due respect, there is a time and a place for everything, and no man, no circumstance, no situation should take the place of God, especially in what you have consecrated and ordained as his sanctuary. Secular music has no place in God’s house whatsoever. Stop it!”
