Give him the least opportunity and Pastor Enoch Adeboye, General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God will us part of it to win souls. He urges members of the church to be incurable soul winners; and so is he.

The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye on Friday, described the late American boxing legend, Muhammad Ali, as his hero, saying he once cried over his health.

The boxing champion died in 2016 at the age of 74.

While speaking at the virtual February 2021 Holy Ghost Service of the church with the theme ‘God Bless You (2)’, Adeboye, who used to be a boxer alluded to Ali’s achievements to illustrate the supremacy of God.

The 78-yr-old cleric said, “It is one thing to be a champion, it is another thing to still be a champion. I will illustrate this by using Mohammad Ali of blessed memory.


“He was my hero, incidentally, we were born the same year and I was a boxer too; not of his class but I followed every fight that he fought. At least beginning from Sonny Liston, I can tell you every person that my hero fought.

“But then, one day I saw him when they asked him to light the torch for the Olympics and I saw my hero, the man who used to float like the butterfly and sting like a bee, I watched him shaking like the reed blown by the wind. His hands were shaking and it took a special effort to hold to the torch and I cried that day.”

“The question I am asking is: ‘Is God an ex-champion?’ Glory be to God, the God who is going to bless you is not an ex-champion.”
