Every time I hear about deliverance sessions, I know it’s got to involve a woman. You hardly hear of men undergoing deliverance sessions with pastors. It’s as if men are immune to certain challenges in life that ensure only women seek deliverance sessions.
Do you ever hear of men standing naked for deliverance before any pastor?
Do you hear of men being asked to lie naked so the pastor can have sex with them to ensure their wives get pregnant?
Men are not asked to see the pastor in private. Or who has heard a man complain his pastor rubs his penis against him in the name of prayers and deliverance? They don’t get to be told not to tell anyone they are serially abused or the holy spirit would ambush them and burn them if they did.
No. Not even young boys…only women and girls are told to do so. And I can list a good number of Pastors, especially those who’ve been in the news recently over one rape charge or the other. Charges that emanated from them telling their victims they needed deliverance sessions that led to one form of sexual assault or another.
Deliverance sessions that never do anything
The other day, I was with a few friends and the talk about these fake men of God came up again. Everyone had a story to tell of how a pastor had lured them into some deliverance session or another. A friend retold when she and a few of her other friends, all teenagers were told to come for a deliverance vigil. They were told to strip naked while the pastor rubbed their bodies with candles.
As in he rubbed their breasts, bums, vaginas, everywhere with candles.
“This is meant to do what?” I asked her.
She replied, “I don’t know o. I think the man was a pervert.”
There are many perverts in the name of God.
Another friend recalled how an aunty had been secretly going to meet a pastor in order to have a child. Instead of prayers at night, it was sex all night with aunty and pastor…
She went secretly because she was told by the pastor her in-laws were preventing her from having children. The aunty didn’t have the child she wanted, she only came out after she found the pastor had impregnated another woman looking for a child.
And the stories never end. So there’s a victim of one of these so-called deliverances that never leaves the victims delivered. One Sukura Owoduni, 21 year old female in Ogun state has been reported to have been set ablaze by her pastor at a Cherubim and Seraphim church while he was performing a deliverance session. Sukura is today regretting her decision to go for the deliverance. She got burnt.
The fire didn’t come from the Holy Spirit
As in literally got set on fire, thankfully not by the Holy Spirit by the demon spirit inhibiting the pastor. Who after he doused the poor girl with Amazing Grace perfume, and lit a candle above her.
She caught fire!
The girl was rushed to the hospital and left there to her fate.
I wouldn’t expect the pastor to take responsibility, it’s simple. A pastor then can ask you to bring items that can be likened to performing juju; he asked Sukura to bring: Amazing Grace perfume, local eggs and candle…no bi juju bi dat?
So a well cooked Sukura is lamenting being abandoned at the hospital. Yes we read reports that the pastor has been apprehended by the police but while he is there explaining the circumstances that led to him roasting a sister, who is going to pay her bills?
There are many other victims of these so-called deliverance sessions that never include men.
I think we should “talk to ourselves” as women, if your deliverance sessions begin to include you stripping naked, it is no longer a deliverance session. It is a running away session. A session that should see you fleeing, because your pastor has become evil.
Who better to deliver us from these fake pastors but ourselves? There will always be a reason for pastors to suggest getting deliverance from; to pass exams, to have children, enjoy success in business and life in general, retain the love of an errant husband…name it!
I hope with these few points of mine…
Women, beware of these deliverance sessions…just saying.
