- Prophet Shepherd Bushiri recently told his congregation that God does not control the world
- According to Major One, God gave Adam the power to rule over all things on earth
- However, he added after Adam disobeyed God, the authority went to the devil
During a sermon on Monday, February 25, Prophet Shepherd Bushiri told his congregation that God does not have control of the world.
According to Major One, Genesis 1:28 states that God gave authority to Adam and Eve. However, when Adam disobeyed God, the devil received the power.
"Adam disobeyed God and, because of that, he lost authority to the devil. The devil has since taken control," he preached.
Bushiri explained what he meant by narrating the story of Job. He added God was on his throne when all the bad things happened to Job.
“Now the question that one might have is this, where was God when all this was happening? God was right where He has always been on His throne. The only problem is that though God watches over this world, He has no authority over what happens in this world,” he said.
Bushiri then said that God saw after Adam and Eve sinned that the devil took control of the world, thus, he sent his son to die on the cross.
The controversial pastor added that through Christ's sacrifice, people were given back the authority to rule the world.
However, he claimed the only way to unlock this power is through prayer - which the devil fears.
Meanwhile, Friday, February 1, saw the arrest of Shepherd Bushiri and his wife, Mary, who now face serious charges including fraud and money-laundering.
The couple appeared before the Specialised Commercial Crimes Court where their application for bail was postponed to Wednesday, February 6.
Added to this, the pair now face the prospect of having their assets seized by the Asset Forfeiture Unit.
