Samuel, the son of Funmilayo Adebayo, an evangelist nicknamed Mummy GO, and now trending on social media, has said that his mother is not bothered about the hellfire memes circulating online.
He, however, said many of the texts attributed to her mum in the memes about hellfire were fabricated and untrue imaginations.
Samuel, in a chat with The Punch on Friday, said though his 54-year-old mother made some comments about some actions that might attract hellfire as a destination in the afterlife, she never coerced people to believe her.
The son of the preacher who is in his early 30s also urged social media users not to take his mother’s comments personal but to feel free to ignore or accept any of her sermons that align with their belief system.
“Even though she said everything about hell, there is nowhere she said by fire, by force, people must agree and accept what she is saying. I don’t think she has ever made that kind of statement before.
“Everybody is entitled to believe what they want to believe. I don’t know why people are taking it personal. There is the freedom to believe whatever one wants to believe and neglect whatever one wants to neglect but there is always the freedom of expression. Even Christ didn’t say that people must accept Him by fore by force as the son of God.”
