Controversial On Air Personality Ifedayo Olarinde, popularly known as Daddy Freeze on Sunday decried the flamboyant lifestyles lived by many pastors.

The OAP said most pastors are not Christ-like, in other words they do not serve God.

In an article on his blog entitled, “Pastors today are business men in Pentecostal suits, they are so unlike Christ and his disciples!”, Freeze said it was shameful that tithe paying members could not attend schools built by churches they worship at.

Freeze went ahead to give a brief description of how the disciples of Jesus lived in died, which according to him is in contrast to how many pastors live nowadays.

Most pastors today are not serving God, they are so unlike Christ, and many are just business men in Pentecostal suits! Imagine tithe paying members of a church cannot afford to send their children to schools that those churches built; it’s a shame! Jesus and his disciples did not have the flamboyant lifestyles our pastor today live.

Here’s a deep insight into how the disciples lived and died!

Jesus’ death on the cross, as described in the New Testament, has become one of the most famous events. But what happened to the 12 disciples who were his closest followers? Not as much information has survived about their fates, but here is what’s available from various sources, including the New Testament itself, apocryphal texts, early Christian historians, legends and lore.

Simon, AKA Peter: Simon-Peter, who was appointed by Jesus the leader of the new sect, is viewed by Roman Catholics as the first pope, was eventually martyred in Rome during the reign of the emperor Nero. As the story goes, Peter asked to be crucified upside down, so that his death would not be the equal of Jesus and the Romans supposedly obliged.

Andrew: According to 15th Century religious historian Dorman Newman, Andrew—the brother of Peter—went to Patras in western Greece in 69 AD, where the Roman proconsul Aegeates debated religion with him. Aegeates tried to convince Andrew to forsake Christianity, so that he would not have to torture and execute him. But when that didn’t work, apparently he decided to give Andrew the full treatment. Andrew was scourged, and then tied rather than nailed to a cross, so that he would suffer for a longer time before dying. Andrew lived for two days, during which he preached to passersby.

James (son of Zebedee, AKA James the Greater): Acts 12:1-19 says that James was killed with a sword. The newly-appointed governor of Judea, Herod Agrippa, decided to ingratiate himself with the Romans by persecuting leaders of the new sect. After James was arrested and led to place of execution, his unnamed accuser was moved by his courage. He not only repented and converted on the spot, but asked to be executed alongside James. The Roman executioners obliged, and both men were beheaded simultaneously.

John: John was the only one of the original disciples not to die a violent death. Instead, he passed away peacefully in Patmos in his old age, sometime around 100 AD.

Philip: Philip, the first of Jesus’ disciples, became a missionary in Asia. Eventually, he traveled to the Egyptian city of Heliopolis, where he was scourged, thrown into prison, and crucified in 54 AD.

Bartholomew: Bartholomew supposedly preached in several countries, including India, where he translated the Gospel of Matthew for believers. In one account, “impatient idolaters” beat Bartholomew and then crucified him, while in another, he was skinned alive and then beheaded.

Thomas: Apparently Thomas preached the gospel in Greece and India, where he angered local religious authorities, who martyred him by running him through with a spear.

Matthew: According to legend, the former tax collector turned missionary was martyred in Ethiopia, where he was supposedly stabbed in the back by an swordsman sent by King Hertacus, after he criticized the king’s morals.

James (son of Alphaeus, AKA James the Less): According to Foxe, James, who was elected by his fellow believers to head the churches of Jerusalem, was one of the longest-lived apostles, perhaps exceeded only by John. At the age of 94, he was beaten and stoned by persecutors, and then killed him by hitting him in the head with a club.

Thaddaeus, AKA Lebbaeus, Judas or Jude: According to several stories, he was crucified at Edessa (the name of cities in both Turkey and Greece) in 72 AD.

Simon the Canaanite AKA the Zealot: Simon preached in Mauritania on the west coast of Africa, and then went to England, where he was crucified in 74 AD.

Judas Iscariot: According to Matthew 27:3-6, the treacherous apostle quickly felt remorse over his betrayal of Jesus and went to the Temple to recant. When the high priests ignored his plea, he threw down the 30 pieces of silver that he had been paid, and went off and hanged himself. But Acts 1:15-20, gives a different and even grislier version of Judas’ demise. He says that Judas used the blood money to purchase a piece of land and then fell headlong from a high place there, so that “he burst asunder in the midst, and all his bowels gushed out.” Jerusalem residents subsequently named the place Aceldama, which means “the field of blood.”

  1. Yes sure, most of them are scammers deceiving a lot of Nigerians, most of them are just businessmen honestly, I blame the women and people who’re the major victims, I love pastors, so don’t get me wrong but most of them are just nothing like Christ and his disciples .

    • Mayowa Okunoye when u talk of this exploit, I laugh because no one was forced to give. Even the early churches gave. Why didn’t Abraham complain that God was exploiting him. When he gave Isaac? When God gave his only begotten son, why didn’t he complain he was been exploited? It’s a free world my dear. If you will give give out of what you have, if you won’t den don’t. Cos in my church, it’s being taught to give only from a willing heart and out of the little you have and that’s what the bible preaches. Even same bible said thou shall not appear before the Lord empty. My point is we should quit talking about church and build our personal relationship with God and leave God to judge everyone according to his deeds. I’m not supporting or against anyone.

    • Judes Okoye God has blessed me with more than a enough Oga Jude. If I’m a woman of God and God uses me to bless life and they choose to bless me back I won’t complain. Moreover I won’t stop sowing into God’s kingdom and humanity in my own little way. It has given me an edge in life. My opinion and its works for me

  2. Freeze! Oya we are all called by God. Jesus gave us the great commission before he ascended to heaven. You become a pastor and do God’s business. Don’t go and concentrate on your economy that is going into recession rather that is in recession. Dey find pastors wen u wan judge. U need to find a way to settle down because you have been in the news too much lately and it’s all for nonsense

    • Mayowa Okunoye did they extort money from you? Was a gun pointed to your head to give cash to any man of God. I only said he should talk about his country more and leave men of God. Meanwhile is his talking about men of God a way to proffer solution to the recession?

    • Mayowa Okunoye if you go to church and your pastor said sow into his kingdom and you don’t feel like s giving, you keep your cash. It’s out of what you have you give. If you feel it’s extortion, you don’t give. I have sowed cash and by the grace of God I have seen God’s hands move mightily in favor of my family through sowing.

    • Ok. Make una dey social media dey complain. Them dey do the work God call them to do. If you call it exploitation don’t sow, it’s that simple. Sowing is in God’s word. Sowing has worked for me. I rest my case.

    • Glory Okotie so When Elijah went to the house of the widow’s house in the bible and ask to be given the last food in her house is also extortion? Abeg make una no make me laugh. The awesome thing is after giving her last food. She was blessed and able to pay her debt. Bottom line is sowing has worked so much for my family and still working. My opinion.
