    Sexual Temptation: Religious Anointing Alone is Insufficient – Pastor Adeboye’s Perspective


    Sexual temptation is a powerful force that can be difficult to resist, regardless of one’s spiritual standing.

    The esteemed General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, shared his ongoing vigilance against the temptations of sexual immorality, despite his profound anointing and extensive tenure in the ministry.

    Reverend Adeboye shared his personal strategy for avoiding sexual temptation, emphasizing that physical fitness plays a crucial role regardless of age. He cautioned religious leaders against complacency and the misconception that their spiritual authority alone can shield them from moral vulnerabilities.

    He mentioned these during a sermon delivered at the Ministers & Workers Conference of RCCG America 1, which encompasses the North, Central, and Caribbean regions, with the theme of “The Glory Ahead.”

    In his sermon shared on his YouTube page on Friday, Adeboye observed that Samson, a prominent figure in ancient Israel, succumbed to moral failings despite the divine favor bestowed upon him.

    He said, “Somebody says, at your age, why are you still running? I run faster than before because the closer you get to the finishing point, the more careful you must be.

    “Some of you can say, ‘Daddy, what are you saying, are you still running?’ I run fast.

    “‘With all your anointing?’ Does anointing turn your body to stone? Samson was anointed. Single-handedly, he killed a thousand soldiers. A woman finished him. I hope the boys are listening.

    “You can say, ‘Is anybody still interested in an 82-year-old man?’ She is not interested in you but interested in putting an end to all the great works God has done through you.

    “You see that woman smiling at you everywhere you go, she is there smiling, and she is not your wife, run.”

    Additionally, Adeboye advised young individuals to exercise caution regarding lustful desires, strongly encouraging them to avoid any situations or actions that could be perceived as sinful.

    He added, “And you girls, when you see a boy smiling at you saying, ‘Where have you been all my life? It looks as if the sun has just come out.’

    “He is calling you sunshine. By the time he finishes with you, you won’t even know the difference between sunshine and sunset. You may laugh but mark my words.

    “I do warn my children, particularly the boys. I said if the devil comes against you, tell the devil to get lost, but when you see a girl smiling at you in a funny way, run because you can’t win the battle.

    “Didn’t you read a report that a man committed an offence about 42 years ago, and now his ministry is finished? Anybody who tells you that whatever you do is hidden, it’s hidden until the wind begins to blow.

    “The Bible says, flee youthful lust. It did not ask you to say grace would be sufficient. There is no grace for what God says you should run from. Maybe grace to run.”
