‘Never Invite Secular Artists To Mount The Pulpit’ – Mike Bamiloye Warns

Rita Enemuru, Reporting


GOSPEL Singer and Mount Zion Film Productions Music Producer, Joshua Mike Bamiloye says secular artists shouldn’t be allowed to mount the pulpit for ministrations.

Joshua is the second son of popular gospel filmaker and president of Mount Zion Faith Ministries, Evangelist Mike Bamiloye.

According to Joshua, the Pulpit or Altar is the most revered and significant area in a church building, and not just a performing stage for any Dick and Harry.

Though the message is not meant to antagonize secular artists and comedians, and the fact that God can minister through anyone, the young Bamiloye said that the symbolism of the Body of Christ should be honoured and revered.

Using the hospital as a case study, he also reiterated that while “any patient can walk into the hospital to be diagnosed, not everyone can wear the white coat to assess the patients.

He said: “A church must be welcoming to everyone. We aren’t meant to condemn anyone or judge who’s allowed in or not.

“But THE PULPIT is different. Not just anyone should mount the Pulpit/Altar to perform. Here’s why:

“The altar is the most sacred and most important space in the church. It’s not a “stage” for anyone or any performance.

“Just like in a hospital, any patient can walk in and be diagnosed, but not anyone can walk in and wear the white coat to access the patients. The pulpit/altar is not. 

“It’s for those who have grown in the faith to lead. It’s for those who have reached a certain point in their calling where they are qualified to minister to the congregation.

“While it is true that God can use anybody to minister, we must nevertheless honor and revere the meaning and symbolism of the church while leaving the exceptions to God’s leading.

“Whoever stands on the pulpit isn’t only ministering by what they speak/sing/perform, but also by their lifestyle, mindset, appearance, convictions, and so on.

“Please, understand that my opposing the act of inviting secular singers/comedians/artists etc doesn’t mean I’m antagonizing them or being legalistic.

“I’m showing where we are meant to draw the line. Let’s keep sacred things sacred and not in the name of welcoming everyone disregard what we are meant to honor and revere.”
