The General Overseer (GO) of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye, says he and his prayer warriors will not rest in prayers until the perpetrators of rape are accorded stiffer penalty.
Adeboye, who disclosed this during a live programme on DOVE TV, in Ibadan on Sunday, also said that the issue of rape had become rampant in the society.
He described rape as bad and unbiblical, adding that it could leave a permanent scar on the victim for the rest of her life.
According to the cleric, there is no pain that can be compared to the pain of the parents whose daughter had been raped.
“Myself and prayer warriors will not rest in prayers until the perpetrators of this evil are brought to justice, not only in Nigeria but all over the world.
“Everyone who has ever committed rape, particularly in Nigeria and the world, the all-knowing God will fish them.
“As much as I hate death sentences, I think every form of punishment that will be given to a rapist cannot be considered too severe.
“Anyone, whoever thinks of raping someone again, the almighty God will stop them even before they do so and if they insist God will take them away.
“I am calling on every Christian all over the world to please join me in this prayer,” he said.
Adeboye also urged the faithful never to embrace the spirit of ‘good enough’ because it could be an enemy of greatness.
“Your journey to the top begins when you start sensing that what you call ‘good’ is not enough; the greatest enemy is when you think that you are already great while you are still incomplete.
“Your journey to the top begins when you become aware that God reserves the best till the last; the journey to the top begins from your knees and acknowledges Christ as your Lord and saviour,” he said.
He, therefore, urged those who had not surrendered their lives to Jesus Christ to do so in order to reach the desired place of the destiny God had designed for them.
Meanwhile, the International Federation of Women Lawyers (FIDA) had some days ago demanded death sentence as punishment for rapists in Nigeria.
