When the "respected" in the society start misleading its followers or fans;just like that comedian of a somebody.

Joefirst Joshua said...

And they think they are not mentally deranged???, mtcheew, satan will just be making them see themselves as normal, anyone leaving in sin is abnormal, and for the record! The pastor said, "sin is the root cause of mental illness", he didn't say, all sinners are mentally ill.... Cus a mental illness can never locate a born again, sanctified christian, am not saying church goer, I mean born again!!!!

These "pastors" need to really have their heads examined by professional psychologists, psychoanalysts and psychiatrists.

Now they want to start monopolising on mental illnesses, because they can't be taken seriously as marriage counsellors or child behaviourists.

Please don't take anyone with any mental illnesses to church, for psychological assessment.

Sin is not mental illness hmmmmm. Na wah ooo

From the beginning everything God created was good till sin came in, with mental illness inclusive. So sin is the root of all evil.

I can't stand deluded Nigerian pastors goshhh...Like really?? And all Nigerian politicians are sane?? Like WTF....All the research, studies and even the push for more funding in US Senate for mental health research and cure this is what an ignoramus can come up with...How abt your Religion is actually believed by only mental health patients...Your God impregnanted a caucasian Virgin to have a son with blonde hair, blue eyes, Spanish name and from the middle east of Jewish Origin that freaking Jews don't even blive in...Is that not mental illness??? Mutherfucking scam artists

Mental illness is a neurological medical ailment like any other sickness pure and simple, but in Nigeria beliefs and superstitions are ascribed to it.

If it is as a result of sins, then all the 90% of the Pastors in Nigeria who accumulate wealth to the detriment of their ignorant followers should all be walking about naked.

It shall be easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God, yet all of them, including Sam Adeyemi are accumulating wealth and riches, and dictating small standards all over the place. Pleeeaaase!!

Of course "SIN" is the root of all evil.. And its one of the causes of mental illness! If you're in Christ, you won't have such issues...

I'm really disappointed in this Funmi Iyanda. That single tweet was just the genesis of a series of tweets. If u are so shallow minded and have no knowledge of the Bible, please keep it to yourself and stop trying to spread hate and lies just cos u feel u can. Go and read the whole tweets and I feeleso you should be the one apologising for misleading the public.

Final said...

not really interesting in what he is saying. It is a country where some believe in what Omokri writes. Nigeria should be used to odious fumes emanating from public figure discouraging their their unerstanding for knowledge and furthering their subservience to the idous fumes generators.

And can Funmi shut up please. He is entitled to his opinion. That's how he sees it. His Twitter handle his mouth. Uches face ya work

Truth said...

Pastor Sam is 100% right, sin is root cause of all sickness, Funmi and Betty are not deep enough to understand

noel said...

that is why blackman day suffer

olaitan uche said...

This funmi is sick she just cant decode sentence. Pastor sam said the root of mental illneaa is sin meaning. The root of all evil; either leprosy and every other kind including mental illness is sin. She doesnt know her bible, God never intend all this things we see today to come to us, but sin brougt them to mankind so all sickness nd illneas including mental illness are as a result of sin coming into the world, the best thing funmi should have said is pastor sam please explain more that wont do any am

Joyous babe,Linda ikeji first cousin said...

One of the few I used to have enormous respect for too. But you know, it's sure is nice that these people don't need critics to show the world how short sighted even intelligent people can be. They do a very fine job themselves.

May God forgive you, pastor and I hope people who are affected by mental illness find it in their hearts to forgive you also.

Think properly before making your conclusion. Did you study properly what Pastor Sam tweeted? Study your Bible properly and you will understand what he meant by the tweet.

Who is speaking? Is funmi iyanda born again? How many times in a week does she research the bible?this is one of those posts to bring the kingdom to the mounds but surely she will be disgrace cause there are lots of biblical proofs to what the pastor tweeted..Do we have to waste time with her or pray for her to repent first?Guess the later will be better cause she is babe in the word of God.For the record,anyone who cares should read the following and it has to be someone who is a Christian or someone willing to have biblical knowledge..this post is not intended for people who has grudge with God.Mental illness are behavioral choices,they are not diseases..read psalm 38 1-5,psalm 9 17-18

A canal mind cannot understand the the things of the spirit. Funmi is displaying her ignorance to the whole world.

Anonymous said...

Funmi should get the full message and not contort the meaning behind the message. Before man sinned in Genesis chapter 3 there was nothing like sickness, poverty, lack etc but when SIN came in reverse was d case. Mental illness, all forms of sickness etc all resulted from SIN. Pastor Sam did not mean that people have mental illness cos they sinned, NO!Every disorder in the world today came after Genesis chapter 3 when Adam sinned . Don't read the letter Funmi, get the spirit behind the letter.

If only Nigerians can read sha this world will be a better place. How can educated people be thinking like this? Abeg is mental illness only when one is looking wretched on the Street with injuries all over. He said sin is the root of mental illness which can result to other bigger problems-murder,father sleeping with his kids,people being disrespectful to those who God has called and who only Him has the right to judge. Sin is the root to so many diseases bit it doesn't mean medical attention can't be given bloggers pick out a tweet and everyone goes ballistic.At least common sense depicts that we all go to the page and see for ourselves.. Sin is the root for unforgiveness,hatred,jealousy etc....Well only few can understand cos this really needs revelation and understanding of Gods word...The internet is like a devourer, you post something and some lions are ready to take you down.A little patience-read,meditate, understand and then your head and heart will work together in writing the correct thing. And let's even say he's wrong pls pls pls it become a trend that people come to social media and tear down these men of God. For crying out loud ey ate humans and I don't know where it was written that once you are a pastor,Alfa etc you can't make the mistake.The Bible says let he who is without sin cast a stone. We are not perfect and everyday is another day to change.... Pls we should stop tearing people down..and who says you can't air your mind without being abusive.whether its God that called him or not leave that for him and his creator... Its people like this that saw JESUS CHRIST and still said HE wasnt the MESSIAH..Let's be careful.. Life is a seed and trust me we'll allreap what we've down today,tomorrow or Years to come....THANK YOU

Wtf is this dude saying. Mental illness can occur to anyone. As far as you have a brain, ur brain can get I'll. This your statement is very insensitive, it's just like saying that someone with lungs or liver cancer is a sinner or he or she got sick because they are not born again. Dude don't be ignorant, read books and have an idea of things happening in the word. There is a thin line between insanity and religion, Some of this pastors have mental illness (Bi-polar), but, their followers will have no idea, coz, they don't know the signs. This pastors can say, do things that are abnormal and eccentric, but, their congregation will think that he is filled with the Holy Spirit. His congregation should take him for psychological evaluation to be sure he is normal before he sent that tweet. Ignorance is a disease.

Aunty Funmi God have mercy on you please read your bible don't let devil use you against man of God cos this is devil strategy to accuse him.

We are all born in sin, Christ came to redeemed it, if Adam and Eve does not sin against God will won't be having sickness and diseases we are having now.

Please if you don't understand him, Kindly ask and am sure he will put you through cos he is a man of God and that is his calling.

Thanks we still love you and God loves more.

It pains me the way people support this out of ignorance. Go to a health clinic and see people with mental illness that don't want to take their drugs and get better, because, they are hooked to what their pastors say. When they do this, their health deteriorate, family and health practitioners can't do anything, coz, they are fixated with the thought of what their pastor said. They live in denial and the first step of recovery is admitting that you have an illness and you are ready to work towards getting better by taking your drugs, improving your self care, costal and communication skills and ready to work with ur psychologist and social workers. Many people that believe that they have a problem, get better by doing the above and performing well in the society and people will never know that they have a mental illness, but, the once in denial as a a result of the illness or fixated though about their pastor, imam and religion don't get better. So we need create awareness about mental health and not preaching things that are ignorant and insensitive. I also wish that psychology/mental health can be taught in schools extensively, so that people can understand this.

Pastors and their diehard fans! No difference with the English football club fanatics!
So let's agree that Pastor Sam just meant that without sin, there will be no illnesses at all including mental illness. From his speech, he was being specific and directly singling out mental patients as if they were being punished for the sins they have committed or just sins we have all committed but they for some reason, denied the grace of forviveness, have been so afflicted. A little bit of sensitivity is needed here. If you are not afflicted or have a loved one struggling with it, may you never know what it's like.

Members of every congregation should not just swallow everything they are being told. God gave you your own brain for a good reason, make maximum use of it. Engage your leaders so they can be better too. We can teach one another, we can learn from one another. Pastor, please, make a statement and clarify, I know you have no intents on hurting anyone. Be the bigger person and apologise. We all make mistakes. God bless humanity.

Btw, you are a fantastic motivational speaker. I respect that.

Funmi is mentally ill, thats why she popularises LGBT sturvs and thats why she didn't read the remaining tweets,
If you read along ,Pastor sam also tweeted that " he is not giving this mental talks as a professional psychic doc. but from his christain belief that mental welness is part of the package from salvation, funmi iyanda is possesed , she shld go for deliverance , and so are those of you who think pastor Adeyemi made an error.... i don go!

Anonymous said...

the message was abt 45minutes long and to jus pick a word without actually listening to the entire sermon is hypocrisy. pastor sam actually sam that but that was after he has explained that u need medical/psychological attention in cases of mentak illness, but u need God above all.

Bunmi Bolarin said...

Funmi Iyanda was not in service when pastor Sam preached about taking care of your health, she should not quote him out of d blues. Fun mi learn to listen to a whole sermon before jumping to a conclusion my advice.

I completely agree with Kingmaker.

The BRAIN, like any other part of our bodies can be ill, sick and messed up. The brain is an ORGAN like the heart, lungs, kidneys - and even the SKIN is an organ too.

As such, the brain is also susceptible to a multitude of sicknesses, which manifests in different ways.

Because the brain also manages human behavior, when an individual acts strangely, their behavior can be attributed to mental illness.

Fields of medicine that deal with the brain have the word "NEURO". Psychiatry is also a field of medicine related to brain function and human behavior.

Fasting and prayer has never helped someone with schizophrenia. Medication has.
