The Fufeyins and other church members

What will make a pastor publicly declare his love to his wife with a cash gift of N30million just for a birthday? From where did the money come from and what is the biblical significance of such lavish expression?

These are the questions trailing the gesture of the founder and head prophet of Christ Mercyland Deliverance Ministry (CMDM), Warri, Delta State, Prophet Jeremiah Omoto Fufeyin, who doled out the huge sum to his wife Prophetess Anthonia Fufeyin for just that purpose.

Apparently proud of himself, the prophet even went ahead to post the controversial gesture on his Facebook page, together with the picture of his smiling wife and members of the church, who apparently saw nothing wrong in the action.

Rationalising the action, to the wife, while celebrating her birthday on Sunday, October 29, during a special church service, through his Facebook, he said: “The Bible admonishes us in Ephesians 5:25 Husbands Love your Wife even as Jesus Loves the Church.

“To demonstrate this Love for our Mama, Prophet Jeremiah O. Fufeyin in the presence of all congregation and viewers of MercyTv gave Mama the Sum of 30 Million Naira (30,000,000) to celebrate her BIRTHDAY.

“Indeed Love is in the demonstration of Acts and not just in Spoken Words.”

He continued in another post: “LOVE IS SACRIFICIAL. First Corinthians 12:4-8. Sacrifice is risking emotional pain. When you look at Christ’s sacrifice you understand that His death was not just an act of kindness.


“It was the pain of rejection when He entered our world to call us to Himself. Before we can begin to understand this concept we must recognize the motivation.

“We can never comprehend why God did what He did, but I think we can get a glimpse of the motivation which will help us as husbands see what our goal is supposed to be.”

Naturally, the controversial gesture, attracted the disappointment and anger of many of his followers and friends, who saw it as obscene show, especially at this time, when such an amount could be spent to help the poor.
