Popular Nigerian media personality, Bolanle Olukanle has opined that when a minister of the church falls, he should not only confess but must step away from the Ministry.
In the early hours of Tuesday, 25th December 2021, popular gospel artiste, Sammie Okposo admitted publicly that he was involved in an adulterous affair.
Reacting to this, Bolanle said Sammie Okposo did the right thing by admitting and stepping down from the music ministry. She added that he did a horrible thing but he’s now making steps to restore and heal.
She tweeted ;
When you cheat & you are in a moral position you must step away from Ministry! You have to ! And also it’s sooo important to hold yourself accountable & confess. When something is in the dark let it come to the light so that there is healing!
Yes he did a horrible thing & now he has made steps to restore & heal. You can’t be cheating & still ministering. Even if you have repented . Leave the ministry & go & ask yourself why were you cheating. Find the foundation of your relationship with God before your lead others.
Honestly I will never understand why people ministers and pastors feel like they can cheat and go on like all is well. It is not well! Cheating is a violation that is so deep and reflection of a deep disconnect with where you should be spiritually.
