- David Irefin, chairman of the International Crusade Fellowship, has condemned the eating of fish and meat
- The Nigerian clergyman said that the troubles that people face are traceable to that
- Archbishop David buttressed his point by citing Genesis chapter 1 verse 29 as a biblical reference
A Nigerian clergyman who is also the chairman of the International Crusade Fellowship, David Irefin, has spoken about the real cause of man’s troubles in the world.
In an interview with the Leadership, he said man’s disobedience to God’s commandments always sickness and diseases as some of the consequences, stressing the need to choose vegetarianism as a way of life.
He added that man’s feeding on meat and fish are the reason many troubles have befallen the world.
“On the other hand, vegetarianism is a divine injunction from the Almighty God (Gen 1:29). Leader Olumba Olumba Obu says there was never a time God ordered man to kill and eat animal or fish.
“Accordingly, all those who abide in love cannot harm any God’s creation. All the troubles in the world that hinder the human family from knowing God and obeying Him results from eating meat and fish,” he said.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that one of the most popular pastors of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) in the USA, Pastor Tola Odutola, has resigned from the church.
The pastor, who is currently the senior pastor of Jesus House Baltimore, said despite his decades of service, he was never for once rewarded.
The pastor did not go into details surrounding the resignation but he said that he is very sure that God is a rewarder.

He said that though he apologised for many who may have been disappointed by his decision, he is not going back on it.
Pastor Tola said it is expected that he would be demonised on social media for his decision, adding it is 'okay'. He, however, asked his members not to bring the reports to him.
The pastor said that it is also okay if members want to counter such a report online, saying that he would not do so but rather focus on the job at hand.
The cleric also said he "would not throw stones", adding that he helped built his former church. Pastor Tola said this is the last time he would be talking about his resignation as he wants to move on.
