Pastor Enoch Adeboye, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), recently shared that he still actively avoids sexual temptations, despite his spiritual anointing and advanced age.

Speaking during the Ministers and Workers Conference of RCCG Americas 1, Adeboye emphasized the importance of vigilance against lust, using the biblical story of Samson as a cautionary tale. He highlighted how even a powerful and anointed man like Samson was brought down by a woman.

“Someone asked, at your age, why are you still running? I run faster than before because the closer you get to the finishing point, the more careful you must be,” Adeboye said. “Some of you might wonder, ‘Daddy, are you still running?’ I run fast.”

He continued, “With all your anointing, does anointing turn your body to stone? Samson was anointed. Single-handedly, he killed a thousand soldiers. A woman finished him. I hope the boys are listening.”

Addressing those who might question if anyone would be interested in an 82-year-old man, he remarked, “She is not interested in you but in ending all the great works God has done through you. You see that woman smiling at you everywhere you go, and she is not your wife? Run.”

Adeboye’s message serves as a reminder that no one is immune to temptation and that constant vigilance is necessary to maintain one’s spiritual integrity.
