I left Deeper Life Church because they called a TV set the Devil’s box – Tunde Bakare


Pastor Tunde Bakare of the Latter Rain Assembly has finally explained why he suddenly abandoned Deeper Life after being there for 5 years, to start his own church.

The clergy, who will turn 60 on the 11th of November has always avoided answering questions on his exit from the church, but in a chat with TheNewsNigeria, he opened up.
According to him, he was with the Deeper Life church between 1978 and 1983, however he had to quit when a television set was referred to as devil’s box.

“One day, while I was ministering and a brother was interpreting, I was giving example of the “faith cometh by hearing and hearing the word of God” and I said, ‘Supposing you go to a supermarket to buy soap, you might not know what soap to buy but because you watched the advertisement of Joy soap on television, then you would look for Joy soap because you have been hearing about it.’ And my interpreter said: “If you have been watching the devil’s box…”

I told him I didn’t say devil’s box but television, and he repeated, saying the devil’s box and Brother Kumuyi was behind us. I said I didn’t say devil’s box and that the normal interpretation was amu ohun mu aworan, (the box that captures both the voice and the visuals). Anyway, he still said what he said. The following Sunday, Brother Kumuyi came up with what he called “Sunday Exaltation”; he said that even if you repair television, you are a child of the devil. Then I took my Bible and left. I went home and said I would serve my God, but was not interested any more in church. “ he revealed.
