Joshua Mike-Bamiloye has addressed the issue of using the G.O.A.T acronym, which popularly stands for “Greatest of All Time” and is pronounced like the animal, Goat.
On his Twitter, page, the gospel actor, singer and producer and son of Mount Zion Faith ministry, Evangelist Mike Bamioye expressed concern about Christians using the acronym.
He said “hear us as Christians use this G.O.A.T. Acronym.
“Ah that pastor is the G.O.A.T”
“Jesus is the G.O.A.T” ah!…
I get what it means “Greatest of all time” but I believe we can do without it. For instance, I saw a picture of Messi standing next to an actual goat. Yeah “it means he’s the greatest of all time” BUT THAT’S AN ACTUAL GOAT BRUV…
WITH HORNS! Call me crazy but
Biblically and spiritually a goat has whole different interpretation my friend.
It is well”
Some Christians in response to his tweet noted that it was hard to do without the word, while some others reckoned with his thoughts.
Zion said “I have a problem with making acronyms of everything
And Even when you do
Should it be pronounced when it sounds like another word that has another meaning?”
The Lola while stating how difficult it would be for her said “Uncle Josh lorokan (In one word) we shuu (should) not use goat anymore abi??? Kosi problem but e go hard sha especially when I hear that Aveiro’s voice note Na why we dey call am GOAT, he dey always turn up sorry I still use the word”.
Another user, LatinO, in an attempt to engage in football banter said “You’re right sir. And I second with you. But you sha accept that Messi is the GOAT”.
