Online media personality, Mr Ifedayo Olarinde aka Daddy Freeze, has finally apologised to Bishop David Oyedepo, the General Overseer of Living Faith Church aka Winners Chapel.
Daddy Freeze, apologised to the reverred Bishop through a video he released on his verified Twitter handle.
He stated that he insulted the Bishop two years ago, adding that the video only went viral recently.
The broadcaster, who is the Convener of the Free the Sheeple Movement and Leader of the Free Nation in Christ, said this in a video on Saturday.
He said, “My attention has been drawn to a video I released circa two years, seven months ago while addressing some pertinent issues that arose back then. I apologise for the delivery of my message and for any insult to Bishop David Oyedepo in that video as I didn’t in any way intend to dishonour, disrespect or disregard the person of the bishop.
“The perceived intention to the contrary is regretted. My methods of addressing doctrinal issues have long since devolved to a more scriptural and less confrontational approach. I was, and still, very passionate in my quest to address what I believe are unresolved doctrinal issues, however, from a more amiable perspective.”
He restated his “firm” belief that for the Christian faith to thrive, believers must collectively be open to adopting theological frames of reference.
He said this could be achieved in love only
Daddy Freeze became popular through controversial and non-conforming Christian doctrines which include the non-payment of tithes.
He has been using the broadcast media and social media to criticise Christian doctrines especially those propagated by the Pentecostal faith. He has therefore had several verbal warfare with popular and influential clerics.
Daddy Freeze is known to described those who demand tithe as thieves
In response to his apology, Apostle Johnson Suleman of the Omega Ministry said on his verified Twitter handle:
“This is the way to go.we all are fallible and prone to mistakes..ability to criticize with a more superior scriptural argument is more tenable than name calling..God bless you for towing the line of scriptures..Galatians 6.1”.
