Samuel, the son of Funmilayo Adebayo, the evangelist who is now trending on social media under with the name Mummy GO, has stated that his mother is unconcerned about the hellfire memes circulating online.
He, on the other hand, claimed that many of the texts attributed to his mother in the hellfire memes were fabricated and untrue imaginations.
In an interview with The PUNCH on Friday, Samuel said that while his 54-year-old mother made some comments about actions that might lead to hellfire as an afterlife destination, she never forced people to believe her.
The preacher’s son, who is in his early 30s, also advised social media users not to take his mother’s comments personally and to disregard or accept any of her sermons that align with their beliefs.
Samuel said, “Social media has always been a platform where anything can be posted at any point in time but everything that has been posted about her saying she said this and that are all lies, nothing is true about the memes, they are just fabricating the memes, everybody with their contents, writing all sorts of things and tagging her pictures. We are used to it; the best thing is to ignore them.
“Even though she said everything about hell, there is nowhere she said by fire, by force, people must agree and accept what she is saying. I don’t think she has ever made that kind of statement before.
“Everybody is entitled to believe what they want to believe. I don’t know why people are taking it personal. There is the freedom to believe whatever one wants to believe and neglect whatever one wants to neglect but there is always the freedom of expression. Even Christ didn’t say that people must accept Him by fire by force as the son of God.”
After some video clips of her hell-threatening sermons went viral, the founder of Rapture Proclaimer Evangelical Church of God was nicknamed Mummy GO.
