– PITA Calls out OAP Freeze after series of attacks on Christian leaders & wrong doctrines
Last week, Producer Wilson Joel in a very short post, partly written in vernacular, spoke against OAP Freeze‘s incessant attacks on Christian leaders through the media but it was Gospel singer Pita that drove the message home.
OAP Freeze has always been known to be controversial without mincing words when attacking Christian leaders. What’s more is the rain of abuse on any one who dares to call him to order. The twist is that, he also handles the Sunday morning belt on 96.9 Cool FM called Praise Jam where he teaches biblical principles and prays.
In a stern but polite post, Pita addressed the contrast stating that heaven is not looking to employ a judge.
“I’m a Christian and I’m proud of it. I don’t know why people do things they do but I sincerely can’t be bothered about how people choose to live their lives but again there are things that are SACRED.
Freeze please do all you do by all means recognising that it’s your decision. The last I checked heaven isn’t looking to employ new judges, God isn’t looking for who to help Him slander His children. That’s all on you, do not mistake your position as God’s position… Let me tell you why I’m sure it’s not the Gospel you’re teaching.
1. I’m a beliver, so if you speak truth my spirit will leap and bear witness. (My spirit is sitting down staring at u and doing smh)
2. What place does your message leave people? Anger, chaos, evil speech? Unbelievers use your message as a yardstick to mock our faith and Men of God.
3. What kind of people does your message produce? True Gospel produces and pursues goodness, knowledge, self-control, perseverance, Godliness, brotherly kindness and love. A counterfeit message is filled with arrogance and slander, despising authority and breeding chaos.
Is this God or a god speaking through you?
The bible explicitly tells us that wheat and tares grew together as such it’s inevitable that there will be foxes in the kingdom of God. There will be false doctrines and false prophets, it has always been so from the time of JESUS. My worry for you Freeze is that you’re doing exactly what u think you’re not doing, becoming a pharisee.
This is what the bible says about how we (should) speak.
James 4:11-12 ESV
Do not speak evil against one another, brothers. The one who speaks against a brother or judges his brother, speaks evil against the law and judges the law. But if you judge the law, you are not a doer of the law but a judge. There is only one lawgiver and judge, he who is able to save and to destroy. But who are you to judge your neighbor?
Titus 3:1-15 ESV
Remind them to be submissive to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready for every good work, to speak evil of no one, to avoid quarreling, to be gentle, and to show perfect courtesy toward all people. For we ourselves were once foolish
Titus 3:1-15 ESV
Remind them to be submissive to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready for every good work, to speak evil of no one, to avoid quarreling, to be gentle, and to show perfect courtesy toward all people. For we ourselves were once foolish, disobedient, led astray, slaves to various passions and pleasures, passing our days in malice and envy, hated by others and hating one another. But when the goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit, … James 1:26 ESV
If anyone thinks he is religious and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his heart, this person’s religion is worthless.
Ephesians 4:31 ESV
Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice.
Colossians 3:8 ESV
But now you must put them all away: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and obscene talk from your mouth.
Romans 12:19 ESV
Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.” Ephesians 4:29
Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear.
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.
Whoever covers an offense seeks love, but he who repeats a matter separates close friends.
Luke 6:37 “Judge not, and you will not be judged; condemn not, and you will not be condemned; forgive, and you will be forgiven;”
Apparently, more Christians feel the same way as Pita. After the post, personalities such as OAP Bellarose Okojie, singer Ikayrocks, Ada Ehi, Joy Panam, comedian Emma Oh my God and many more endorsed the post with some also reposting.
PITA recently released his sophomore album, “As I A: The Yearning”. He was also featured on Hip TV‘s The Fuse where he talked about the motivation behind the album and had an acoustic session with members of DRB Lagos.
