The bible in Mathew talks about false prophets that will spring up in the last days. It says “for many will come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many …and many false prophets will appear and will deceive many people.” Mathew 24:5&11.

For Christians, we believed that the last days are here already because we see the different signs the bible said would happen in the last days happening now. Nations rising against nations, parents against children, corruption has taken over the hearts of men; these are some of the signs of the end time the bible talks about.

For the sake of this write up, focus is on the founder of Rapture Proclaimer Evangelical Church God (RAPEC), the controversial pastor, Evangelist Funmilayo Adebayo, popularly known as Mummy G.O. 

Pastor Funmi became popular for her controversial and unorthodox teachings, in what usually seems like a comedy show, she illustrates some of the things that the “children of God” shouldn’t indulge in or they’d end in hellfire. Her teachings are outright condemnation rather than the righteousness the bible offers sinners.  

In one of her teachings, she said any person that dies as a football star shall go to hell. “Anybody that dies as a football star shall go to hell. Write it down, I’m not forcing you to believe it; if your child or brother becomes a star in football, it’s an automatic certificate to hell. 

Especially you boys, when we tell you that football is not good, you hate it.” “If you know it’s a sin raise your hand,” she tells her congregation “football is a sin, it is a game of antichrist that is why many general overseers and big churches are fighting me.” What Mummy G.O did not clarify for her followers is whether just watching the game is a sin also. I’m sure a lot of soccer fans are relieved because they are not “football stars” hence they are not going to hell.

She speaks with certainty as though she has the list of those who belong to hell or she has the keys to hell.

In another video of her sermon, she said comedians are going to hell. You’d wonder how she gets these revelations or how and why she came to such tentative conclusions. “My dear, if you are here and your dream is to become a comedian, I want you to renounce Jesus and reject him. You must renounce Jesus and reject him. To become a comedian means you’re destined for hell.”

A closer investigation by Saturday Tribune revealed that the church has rules that members must abide by, according to the report, Mummy G.O. forbids the use of fashion accessories such as jewelries, fixing nails, and facial makeup for ladies, and she also forbids her male members from any funky way of life.

The use of the traditional talking drum is prohibited in her church, certain beverages, sea foods are also not allowed for her members. It was also gathered by Tribune that her members are not allowed to say “hello” to begin a phone conversation, “Mama RAPEC not only regulates what members’ wear, she also forbids them from saying hello to begin a telephone conversation, as believers, members are expected to say ‘shalom’.” Shalom means peace.

In other videos, Mummy G.O. shared some of her life stories before she gave her life to Christ. “I wasn’t a fool before I met Christ” she said, “I was a cocaine pusher, I sold guns and rented ammunitions to robbers. I was a hired killer; I had boys at my disposal, whenever I want to give information to politicians, they pay me millions. 

Obasanjo knows me very well, we are close pals. Even Babangida knows me. The police had no guts to arrest me, Sijuade, Ooni of Ife; it was when I met him that his business started booming.” She revealed that she never used the conventional means of transportation to smuggle her cocaine, “the kind of cocaine I smuggled, I used flying carpet straight to Germany and America, I don’t use airplanes. The reason why I have this knowledge is due to my long journey in the kingdom of darkness.”

I must say we are privileged to have Mummy G.O in our midst, having to be the producer of the first attachment on earth is no easy feat. I remember growing up, the only time we used attachments on our hair was during Christmas and it was Amigo, I can imagine how much money she must have amassed from inception of attachment on earth to the early 90s, that’s by the way though. “The first attachment on earth I produced it. The name is ‘Amigo’ and we’re the ones that have the company.” She revealed.

It is unfortunate that our society is very gullible that prophets like Mummy G.O. are having followers that abide by their teachings. What on earth does going to heaven or hell have to do with eating Titus fish? I’ll let you be the judge.

Just as comedy shows, Mummy G.O. has become a sensation with several memes about her flying around the internet. 

I always wonder what the fate of men would be if God were to be human, Mummy G.O. without mercy or second chance condemns the sinner straight to hell; thankfully, God is not human. 

Having come under so much criticism, in a recent interview with BBC Mummy G.O. said the videos making rounds on social media are fake, she also feigned ignorance of her sermons going viral. She said people threatened her because of her end-time preaching.

In the end, know God for yourself.
