Why I was Demoted As A Pastor – True Life Story


My immediate siblings are twin brothers, same
mother and father. November 5, they will mark
their 39yrs of age. Taiwo and Kehinde happily
married and lived comfortably.

Taiwo married a banker while Kehinde married
University non-academic staff. They are both
devoted christians and they both live in same

About a year ago, we lost Taiwo in a fatal
accident and left a surviving wife as widow and
three kids. Six months later, as their senior
brother and the breadwinner of the whole family,
I summoned Kehinde to re-marry Taiwo’s wife to
continue playing the role of husband.

Kehinde and Taiwo’s wife agreed to marry each
other but Kehinde’s wife kicked against the
union. Kehinde only has one child and since 8yrs
now nothing more.

Kehinde’s wife got provoked, lashed me with
demeaning words and thereby reported me to
our Church senior pastor at the headquarters and
I was demoted for involving in sacrilegious belief.

It’s a shock today again to have received a letter
from the headquarters that I’m no more needed
as pastor in their ministry due to this same issue.

This is a ministry that I had spent a lot towards its
growth. The land our branch was built on was
bought by me alone.

Now, what is my offence?

  1. Comment: they shdnt have demoted d man,den y s t dat wen we do wrong christ forgive y cant we do dsame nd try him next tym t not gd at all

  2. I personally do not judge you and do not condemn you but you also go and talk to God about it and be sure God is really involved in your decisions

  3. Before people start judging him and calling the act ‘ungodly’ and ‘sacrilegious’ what does the Bible say!?

    This is where he got his idea from:

    Deut. 25:5

    “If brothers are living together and one of them dies without a son, his widow must not marry outside the family. Her husband’s brother shall take her and marry her and fulfill the duty of a brother-in-law to her.”

    So you see he wasn’t being out of line, he was trying to apply old testament Mosaic Law.

    1. This portion of the scripture did not say whether the brother could still do it if he was already married and that’s the problem here

  4. Was the other brother not already married? Rather than ask his younger brother to marry her why didn’t he do it if it was so right in his sight?

  5. No proper orientation, if bible and church does not believe in the act, why should the pastor support such act. I think something is wrong somewhere

  6. If you seek to know what you have done wrong, then here is goes; the wrong you did was that as a pastor, you should have known better that your decisions goes beyond you. You should have adequately related to the Church leadership (your superiors) your stans of the matter, owning to fact that you are a man under authourity.

  7. Am not sure this story is real. Maybe a fiction to get responses or reactions. IF IT IS: SUCH A STORY SHOULDN’T BE PUBLISHED.
