In a surprising turn of events, South African Pastor Jay Israel has made a public apology to Nigerian billionaire Prophet Jeremiah Omoto Fufeyin. The apology came after several months of social media attacks and criticisms against Fufeyin.
Jay Israel, who is known for his controversial criticisms of several religious leaders in Nigeria, flew down to Nigeria to seek forgiveness from Fufeyin, the founder of Christ Mercyland Deliverance Ministry in Delta State.
In a video that has since gone viral, Jay Israel is seen kneeling before Fufeyin and his congregation, pleading for forgiveness and renouncing his past criticisms of the famous prophet.
“I came to Nigeria, here in Mercy City, Warri to apologize to my father, Prophet Jeremiah Omoto Fufeyin, for all the things I have said against him in the past,” Jay Israel said in the video. “I am sorry for any harm I may have caused him and his ministry. I have come to make peace and ask for his forgiveness.”
Fufeyin, who is known for his philanthropy, miracles and a loving fatherly disposition, accepted Jay Israel’s apology and called for an end to all forms of attacks and criticisms among religious leaders.
“I forgive you, my son,” Fufeyin said. “Let us all come together and work for the betterment of humanity. Let us not be divided by our differences but united by our common goal of spreading love and peace.”
The public apology by Jay Israel has been hailed by many as a sign of humility and a step towards reconciliation among leaders of different religious beliefs. It is also seen as a lesson for all to embrace forgiveness and tolerance as we strive for unity in diversity.
