Outspoken Nigerian cleric Bishop Oyedepo just got a surprising new comparison as a birthday gift.
The Winners Chapel founder, on the occasion of his 66th birthday, was described a someone in a league of his own.
Oyedepo celebrated his birthday on Sunday. The accolades came from the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) Pastor Enoch A. Adeboye.
“Some years ago, someone gave me an article on cars to read,” Adeboye said as he began his tribute to Oyedepo.
“It listed the Mercedes Benz as the strongest car. It listed BMW as the fastest car. It listed Lexus as the most comfortable car.
“I turned to the man that gave me the article to read and asked in my confusion, ‘so, where do we place Rolls Royce?’
“The man smiled and said, ‘sir, you can’t place Rolls Royce in this category; when we are rating cars, Rolls Royce is in a class of its own’
“There are bishops and there are bishops. And when you are rating bishops, Bishop Oyedepo stands in a class of his own.
“Bishop Oyedepo is the Rolls Royce of bishops and I am proud to be his father,
“It is only in Christianity that you see a bishop who is a son to a pastor.
“Happy Birthday Bishop David Oyedepo,” Adeboye said.
