Gloria Bamiloye, the wife of Evangelist Mike Bamiloye, Founder of Mount Zion Faith Ministries has said that a born again Christian can still go to hell.
She said this while posting her daily tonic on her Facebook page. Speaking on the topic of “The New Man,” the gospel actress read from the book of Ephesians 4:23-28 to back up her stance.
The bible passage reads, “And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness. Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of another Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath…”
Expatiating on the passage, she said that the letter was by Paul to believers who had been saved and born again.
Bamiloye said that it means a born-again Christian can still be in the habit of lying, stealing, keeping malice and be involved in other works of the flesh if he does not take on the new man he has through Christ.
She also said it is one of the reasons some unbelievers are doing better than some believers.
In her words, “Ananias and Sapphira, his wife lied against the Holyspirit in the heat of God’s power. A person can be born again and still go to hell if he fails to drop the works of the devil. So your being born again may not stop your past sinful life if you don’t rise up in the new life you have in Christ.”
Conclusively, she admonished that, ”You must be renewed in the spirit of your mind and put on the new nature of Christ that is in you. You have the power to say No to the devil and his works and put on the New man which is created in righteousness and true holiness.”
