Evangelist Funmilayo Adebayo has been dubbed “Mummy GO” on social media for a series of controversial claims she’s made about Heaven and Hell, including some directions she issued to her church members on how to construct heaven.
Samuel, her son, has reacted to his mother’s images being exploited in amusing memes on social media.
Samuel told The PUNCH that, despite his mother’s pronouncements about certain activities that could lead to hellfire as a destination in the hereafter, she never forced others to believe her.
Listeners can choose to ignore or embrace any of his mother’s sermons that match with their religious beliefs.
He expressed himself thus:
“Social media has always been a platform where anything can be posted at any point in time but everything that has been posted about her saying she said this and that are all lies, nothing is true about the memes, they are just fabricating the memes, everybody with their contents, writing all sorts of things and tagging her pictures. We are used to it; the best thing is to ignore them.
“Even though she said everything about hell, there is nowhere she said by fire, by force, people must agree and accept what she is saying. I don’t think she has ever made that kind of statement before.
“Everybody is entitled to believe what they want to believe. I don’t know why people are taking it personal. There is the freedom to believe whatever one wants to believe and neglect whatever one wants to neglect but there is always the freedom of expression. Even Christ didn’t say that people must accept Him by fore by force as the son of God.”
