Pastor Oritsejafor called out for asking members to pay $5,000 for a mantle lailasnews


Pastor Oritsejafor who asked 90 members of Morris Cerullo’s church in the United States to pay $5,000 for the mantle, said they won’t miss God if they do.  A Nigerian pilot who called him out over the claims, accused him of being a charlatans who has turned Yahweh into a God that needs money.

He wrote;

Nigerian Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor was in Morris Cerullo’s church in America recently, looking for 90 people to give 5000USD each (450,000USD) for a mantle so they do not miss God. My question is, those that don’t have 5000USD to give, are they going to miss GOD? –

These charlatans have turned Yahweh into a God that needs money(mammon). Is it not written in 1 Peter 1:18 that we were redeemed without perishable things such as silver and gold but with the precious blood of Christ?? “For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your ancestors, but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect” –

Why then do people need to pay 5000USD so they don’t miss God???
I guess in America where poverty level is not has high as Nigeria and health care is top notch the only thing to sell to the gullible believers is Salvation. –

I don’t believe God has sent you to collect peoples money so they don’t miss HIM, and like you said in the earlier parts of this video you’re a crazy man Pastor Ayo.

He called himself crazy I only rephrased it in my previous post. Africans are crazy people indeed, to build the largest church auditorium in the poverty capital of the world. Crazy people when una go get sense??? JC

  1. So if the later get to pay for the mantle they wont miss God, I don’t think we need to disturb.b ourselves with some of these men of God. Salvation is free and will always be

    • We people are the one that let all this so called man of God fool us, many don’t believe in God they’re serving that why…

  2. Jesus
    This is an abomination
    So you have to pay for you not to miss God
    Where is it in the Bible?

  3. He shouldn’t have said “so they won’t miss God”. I think that’s the main issue here and not the money. Being generous to God invites blessings for those who can afford it. Today pastors are into church for money making purposes and not for bringing the salvation and message of God to sinners.

  4. May God deliver us from the hands of the wolves in sheep clothing. The bible said freely you receive and freely you shall give.

  5. God’s divine visitation is now being sold. I don’t like speaking against men of God, but this is not good, coming from a well respected man of God. I think giving in church should be voluntary, and not presenting it in a way that if you don’t give, you start feeling guilt

  6. I think what the pilot said is very true. Where poverty is high still we have the largest churches. 5000usd is not a joke o. God please help your people o.

  7. Selling God’s salvation , all this men of God doing all these abominable this, God is watching you all, that is how one man of God said that if you don’t contribute to his lunching God will not answer your prayers. God gives freely.

  8. Hmm the world is surely coming to an end oo….imagine some men of God has turned d church into a business place ..lord have mercy on us

  9. Christ has paid it all in the cross we don’t need to pay again we should be careful with all this pastors

  10. Its not the first time am hearing pastors calling that same 5000dollers to be given. Its a shame how our pastors have stooped so low.

  11. The fear of God and his will is no longer found in church and some minister claim to be servant of God. They didn’t preach the repentance gospel but turn the church to hot cake business. I knew not when he become Personal assistance to God

  12. See the way men of God are disgracing us too abroad
    Drug peddlers will do their own, men of God will do theirs too?
    Its such a shame

  13. Africans’s are indeed crazy.. Some so call men of God do anything just to make money.. Instead of you helping people with money you are collecting from them

  14. Today pastors are into church for money making purposes and not for bringing the salvation and message of God to sinners.

  15. Today pastors are into church for money making purposes and not for bringing the salvation and message of God to sinners.

  16. All this abnormal men calling themselves Pastor they are doing everything irritated, how come someone like this will called himself man of God, God go punish him and his rest that victimise people like him.

  17. Church in Africa is pure business! Pastors are developing more strategies everyday to acquire more money. I learnt he was an armed robber before he repented. He still dey display that traits.

  18. What a shame, how can a man of God as pastor ayo call member to buy a mantle worth $5000usd, I think the Nigerian pilot is right for what he said

  19. Some of these men of God are just out to enrich themselves and their family members.Lord have mercy. it’s nice that he was called out so that people will be aware of their activities

  20. I find it difficult to comment on this,as there are possibility that the respected man of God may have been quoted out of context.

  21. I can not fit to say anything on this honestly.. It is bad for us to judge this men of God.. Just let them be.. So that on the last day.. Their sins will on their head alone

  22. He still remains a man of God and should not be abused. Let us leave him for his Master. But salvation is free and remains free. The cost of salvation is the blood of Jesus and you emulate the cost by living right for him.

  23. Mantle from God is never traded with money because simon peter told the magician to perish with his money because the holy spirit is free for those who are will and thirsty for it

  24. This is crazy coming out of the so called man of God how can you asked people to pay for their salvation did you buy yours with money? I think the rate of poverty in Nigeria is making people to do anything for money. Where is it written in the Bible to pay money so one don’t miss heaven if is so everybody will go to heaven because they will buy it with money but funny enough is not so The Bible says you should work out your salvation with fear and trembling not with money. May God help us with all this fake pastors.

  25. majority of the pastors and so called men of God are just like provision store sellers. they are only out to extort money from those who are ready to listen to their noise. otherwise, how do you defend such action, pay money in order not to miss God?

  26. This is serious thing ooo, hide that don’t have will miss God then, this people ehh May Gid help us to the end

  27. Na wa o, I really don’t know what all these pastors are turning g our churches into. Churches are now being used for buisness instead of redeem people.

  28. This month money and mantle thing is getting out of hand. Ministry is no longer what it used to be these days.

  29. Hungry pastors who has used church as business place. Repent and God forgives you.

    But people should buy sense naw and stop following them.

  30. When did the church turn to a place money contributing place..instead of preaching the Gospel,rather they exploit money from members

  31. if it were up to me i would say let everyone stay in their houses on sunday and read their bibles themselves

  32. This is nothing to write home about ….no wonder that is why the governments are planning to include churches among tax payers.

  33. Lots of Nigerians lack sense
    These pastors worship mammon
    And make people believe money is all that you must give to encounter heaven but I blame their outright foolishness
    The poverty capital of the world dedicated to making pastors billionaire
    Too dumb

  34. I don’t like to add my. self in the criticism of the men of God because it is not good.u Don knw what God said to him and u whr not dey when God call him

  35. this world will soon come to an end, while will a pastor for God sake be asking member to pay money to meet God.

  36. That’s really funny, I believe that the salvation of God is not for sale its suppose to be given freely to those who receive, pastor oritsejiafor is only trying to make money by selling a mantle at such high price, that’s extortion.

  37. I don’t have anything to say about this, but one thing I know is that God in His infinite mercy will help us out of all these challenges.

  38. Miss God! This statement is in complete, doesn’t make any sense,am sure will get something different if we hear the speech from the pastor end.

  39. As long as u have a point, u don’t need to insult the pastor or judge him, it is God that should do that. God bless Nigeria

  40. Oga ooo God as said that earlier that when the end of the world want to come to an end we will be seeing different pastor and Alfa quoting rubbish I think that coming true Now

  41. One thing is that does people’s called them self pastor had already turned church to business center, they were not doing anything for god

  42. Indeed pastors are really taking the things and word of God for granted…and greater would be their fall when the anger of God shall be upon them.

  43. It is written in the bible that at the end of term (world) we will see many things and this is one of the signs( God is not after your money what he wants is for you to be saved)

  44. This world is coming to an end, imagine a pastor saying you should pay that kind of amount, it’s very bad

  45. The creature to be worship is only one and he is the provider to all mankind, so their is no need of anything from someone.

  46. Those that call them selves Man of God this days self , most of them are after money, only God can help us out, salvation is free, collecting money is for your own needs.

  47. Building the largest Church in the world in Africa located in Nigeria proves that Africa will be a save heaven, where the world will come to for solutions, we are crazy and it is crazy people that brings solution to the world, go ask the right brothers and Bill gates, is that crazy for you?

  48. He might have said it in a wrong way, but we don’t have to insult or judge him only God has the right to judge us

  49. Ate you sure he is a true man of God I don’t think so the price is just too much not every body can afford it

  50. God have mercy why in God’s name are so of this men that called there self pastors lying with God’s name all in the name of begging for money o

  51. God does not need our money. All he needs is our fervent worship and obedience and faithfulness. How can people be so gullible.

  52. Its only God that knows who is serving him or not,who am I to criticize but I believe these men of God should also consider the poor and the needy.also salvation is free

  53. It is well….you can’t try this in nigeria.em go just finish m,,na Americans wey believe so much in salvation..

  54. Pastors are there to enrich themselves not even mind where or how you get the money, so you will have to Ayo before you meet God, and if you dont have 5,000 dollar, you will miss God. I dont even surprise at Ayo who used his private jet to move our money to RSA in the build up of 2015 elections, up till this moment our millions of dollars still hooked in RSA. These pastors can only deceive gullible worshippers anyway

  55. And another time you will still be hearing anybody that can soe a 10,000us dollars will not die, is this how Jesus Christ did his own.

  56. What a shame. And this same man will come out to be a man of God . I hope Pastor Oritsejafor has a strong back up his claims for his members to pay $5000 for a mantle

  57. They are using God to make money and they don’t care how you Got the money you just provide for them.God have mercy

  58. I won’t question the works of a pastor because I can still remember the story of Aaron, Miriam and Moses.
    Moreover, only God knows.

  59. The Bible has said it that in the end time may fake prophets and pastors will arise in his name prophesying and doing wonders in his name but they are not of God.Africans are not crazy but the hooligans from Africa countries

  60. Hope this is not one of those fake rumors again. One need to be careful on what we say. Another thing is he is a man of God. I leave everything I want to say to hand of God. Can’t speak against him let our father be the judge.

  61. It is absurd really JC. Religion has become a veritable business in Nigeria. Unfortunately the gullible are buying into the charade and only enriching the so called leaders. When will my people wise up?

  62. Our God is not a hungry God, some men of God use church members to task for money. God can’t force you to give.

  63. Weather right or wrong, no body has the right to criticize a man of God to avoid the wrath of God . Moses did wrong in the Bible and when his sister gossiped him she was punished. Let’s be careful. Asking members to pay $5k for a mantle is none of your business. Please

  64. Hahahahaha the Pastor dey kolomenta this is the reason why people are converting to islam or refusing to go to churches . so they will not miss God?? laugh wan kill me

  65. CRIMINALS CALLING THEMSELVES PASTOR ALL OVER NIGERIA GOD WILL SO DEAL WITH YOU ALL SOON…EVIL THAT MEN DOES LEAVES WITH THEM OH…NOT LIVE AFTER THEM AS BEFORE…GOD WILL CONTINUE TO OPEN OUR EYES BETTER..

  66. Hummm only God can judge us ooo I will love the Christian faith leaders to consult God before doing anything .

  67. I’m scared dont know who to follow,they are all the same.It will be very difficult for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God according to Bible. It means all this pastors that are wealthy is going to hell. yet people still pursue this weath.

  68. Money hungry pastors. The world is coming to an end as in the book of revelation. God please save us all

  69. The Bible says you receive freely and you give freely but pastors of today are making ridicule of themeslves not God

  70. very serious unanswered question is Those who did not have the said amount of money, will they miss God? may God help us as we follow what men on carso are doing.

  71. Pastors or men of God as they are mostly referred to as, should be careful of what they say to members. Members are discouraged when they hear this kind of messages instead of The undiluted word of God.

  72. Some prophets are just money mongers, they don’t even care If the person has it or not , they don’t use the money to aid the poor like we are meant to do

  73. Wonders of wonders, so if they refuse to pay that mantle they will not be see God Abi? That’s a fat lie.

  74. The way pastors of these days are going after money is demoralizing their followers. Even pastors are now worshipping money instead of God

  75. And we will still get to see people in attendance in a church like this and a pastor preaching money and God. There’s nothing we will not see in this country

  76. This is the height of it all, how can someone pay not to kiss God, the extent by which all this men of God are going all because of money this day eehnn, I begin to wonder if they are really men of God or God of men.

  77. Where is it stated in the Bible that you have to pay for you not to miss put on God, this is an abomination

  78. Very crazy. Just recently, another man of God was accused of selling tickets to heaven. Salvation is free

  79. They didn’t preach the repentance gospel but turn the church to hot cake business. Members are discouraged when they hear this kind of messages.

  80. I don’t like putting my mind in things that concern church or men of God… All I know is that God sees it all.

  81. So as many who don’t have 5k will miss God, then if so what happened to the preaching of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

  82. This is not right. How would paying 5000USD dollars payment enable one not to miss God because of a mantle.

  83. Me thinks the mantle is for the rich (millionaires mantle) the ones for middle class and poor will also be sold like #500, 5k , 100k

  84. But to me I don’t think all this Men of God are not forcing anybody to work for God instead making it known to them the blessing behind it so No one should criticize any man of God…

  85. “Turning Yahweh into a God that needs money” The Bible said”Free we received and freely we give”. “As the last days, the love of many shall wax cold and the love of money shall increase”.

  86. This shouldn’t be a news if you have the money you pay nobody is forcing you besides this is to small for God i will do more for my God

  87. Pastors should do the work of winning souls that they are called to and allow God to bless them in His own way. This prosperity stuff should stop.

  88. I have nothing much to say but God will give perfect judgement to every act and attitude of our spiritual leaders.

  89. Everything is money, money. Freely you have received and Bible said freely shall you give. The only way a pastor cannot give freely Is when devil is the one that gives him power. I rest my case

  90. A Charlatan claiming to be God’s Worshipper… Owning a Church is a discrete way of making money because humans place their hope on so called pastors like this one….

  91. Nobody preach about God’s coming and his miracles,Thy now talk about prosperity prosperity. I don’t blame them

  92. Anyways everyone has their own way of doing things. tomorrow now he will say God as him to tell your land,or house belongs to man of God

  93. This is why unbelievers will never take christains serious. When has it become a channel through which we see or meet God($5000). Why are men of God monetizing everything about christainity. God please save us. Freely I received, and freely I give is no longer the message.

  94. That’s a bitter truth of building the largest church in the midst of the poor people. Please don’t sell God for money

  95. In as much as i dont feel comfortable speaking against the men of God, i believe some of them are taking all these spiritual things too far. Just like in the bible when the house of God was turned into a business centre!

  96. If this is true then there is nothing holy about this saying because I don’t expect things like this to come from him

  97. when will both pastors/church members understands that there is no compulsion in somethings, the congregation that are still struggling to make ends meet.. May God save us all

  98. Am not judging but I don’t believe it’s a good thing, God is not in need of money, money can’t make u see God

  99. This is a big deception, where is it written in tbe Bible that you must contribute a certain amount to a so called man of God in order not to miss God? Only fools will be deceived by this.

  100. This is really serious, how can a man of God say such things to his members. God help us in this country.

  101. What the man said about pastor Ayo is the truth. Pastor Ayo is not preaching salvation but rather he is asking for money.

  102. I don’t want to make comment that will seems as if am supporting the pastor or against him, let just keep quit

  103. Those that will fall for the trap will pay. God has many things to judge. All this our so called men of God and some of their members are suffering and u see them using expensive car and so on

  104. I think in a situation like this, someone should just mind his or her comments because we do hear fake news sometimes but no matter what, only God can judge.

  105. What sort of ministration is this? Instead of preaching salvation to them, he is asking for their money.

  106. Anything about God has principles, there’s more blessings in giving than receiving, he might be led by God

  107. Americans… What are you keeping him for.. Why not deport him immediately.. Freely have ye recieve and freely give ye!
    You never read?

  108. Signs of end time. Why on earth will a pastor ask money from church members telling them, its so they won’t miss God. Mantle for that matter. May the lord have mercy on anyone trying to make money with God’s ministry

  109. This is rubbish. The world is something else. Churches are now business center in making money.. Issokay

  110. Chaii… He this man really a man of God? Crazy stuffs! 90 mantles! For S5,000…. He wants buy jet be that.

  111. I am not in a pole position to judge any pastor, when we get to heaven God will judge them himself.

  112. Hmmmmm that’s is why there is no more preaching of salvation, holiness, sanctification etc but money has taken the center stage

  113. I didn’t know that this pastor is now into this. How will someone be asked to pay such a huge amount of money for mantle. Many pastors are just using members to make money, God will judge them all. Pastors are now preaching money instead of how to follow God.

  114. Signs of the end time, perilous times. There shall be gnashing of teeth. Some men of God sha

  115. That’s a very serious case I think that pastor needs to be seriously ued to court for that reuest

  116. God can never ask for money for His gift, and so any person who does that is doing it on his or her own risk, $5000 is not a small money, is our God, the God of the rich?

  117. I don’t believe in paying to get miracle or whatever. Freely did God give these things

  118. He’s among those the Bible warned us of. They are those who make merchandise of the people of God.

  119. Business as usual, no more preaching the real gospel of Jesus Christ. All that matters now is money.

  120. Jesus has said it before he left the earth that many fake prophet will arise after him. Shame on the man

  121. I know God will see us through these times and give us a revelation of what is true from his mind. He told me that He is the one that govern seed to the sower

  122. God will judge all these questionable things that people do on his name in the Name of Christianity.

  123. Hmm the world is surely coming to an end oo….imagine some men of God has turned d church into a business place ..lord have mercy on us

  124. This is crazy…God will just be watching ..he alone knows those worshipping him in spirit and truth…this is getting out of hand.unbelievable.! so poor ppl will miss God now?

  125. Is only foolish people who want sharp sharp miracle and those who no get brain will fall prey to all this greedy pastors

  126. Nigeria has suffered in the hands of those Nigerian that go outside the country and disgrace it(Nigeria). Now he’s running a business in the name of God.

  127. This is just using God’s name to get Money,like someone once said if Jesus should come as a human again to this world he wouldn’t stop puking

  128. End time pastors, fake pastors that came to deceive people,
    People now has to pay to get mantels

  129. I don’t like criticism men of God, but selling the gift of is not approved biblical, free you free you give.

  130. End time wonders, God help us!!!
    What are they using the mantle for?!
    Will it take them to heaven?

  131. All these are what drive people away from the church of God.. So if person nor get money again he nor go fit serve God

  132. I don’t like criticism men of God, but selling the gift of is not approved biblical, freely you received, free you give.

  133. No body knows what the exact truth is but no matter what the really truth is body enters heaven by payment it is only your life styles that determines where you’re going hell or heaven

  134. I want to believe this information is not true because It is very bad of any man of God to do such

  135. He should continue, everyday for the thief one day for the owner.. Wordly men if god everywhere.. Very shameful

  136. This one is the new scam format I guess. Who would even believe such that if you don’t buy a mantle you will miss God. Fake pastors everywhere

  137. Is this a new thing, things like this have been happening.
    Whoever feels comfortable with it should pay does that don’t should

  138. See how they are turning the house of God to a business, using several means to extort money from gullible nigerians in exchange for salvation, God will arrest them on a very good day

  139. Building the largest Church in the world in Africa located in Nigeria proves that Africa will be a save heaven, where the world will come to for solutions, we are crazy and it is crazy people that brings solution to the world, go ask the right brothers and Bill gates

  140. Jehovah look down, look down and see what people are doing because of money, using your name to fool and decide people, Lord save us from doom prophets

  141. Whst are this pestor turning Christianity too.pls pastors should just stop using God’s name to collect money from people

  142. that’s funny and I think he needs to fast and pray for forgiveness from God,because the true God will never request that from any man

  143. It only God that knows who is a real man of God,so many false prophet everywhere,which one is pay$ 5000 for a mantle in other to see God ,so salvation is now for sell abi

  144. That’s not good for the pastor now,hand are not equal… Not everyone have that kind of money to carry to church.

  145. Haba.
    Pastor God no even tell anybody for synagogue say make them bring money for inside Bible.
    Church come be competition again.

  146. This is madness at the highest peak..paying 5k for mantle not to miss God..who told you that God needs our money well we are in the end time so we should be careful of all this pastors

  147. If he decides to sell the mantle, who gave him the mantle in the first place?. Let’s learn to mind out business.
