At my age, I still run away from sexual temptation – Pastor Adeboye


The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, emphasized that he remains vigilant against sexual immorality despite his anointing and many years in ministry.

He mentioned that he now runs even faster to avoid any temptations, recognizing that no level of anointing can protect against such sins.

Adeboye cautioned fellow ministers to not rely solely on their anointing to resist temptation, pointing out the story of Samson as an example.

This message was conveyed during a sermon at the RCCG Americas 1 Ministers & Workers Conference with the theme “The Glory Ahead” and was shared on Adeboye’s YouTube page.

He said, “Somebody says, 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.

“Some of you can say, ‘Daddy, what are you saying, are you still running?’ I run fast.

‘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.

“You can say, ‘Is anybody still interested in an 82-year-old man?’ She is not interested in you but interested in putting an end to all the great works God has done through you.

“You see that woman smiling at you everywhere you go, she is there smiling, and she is not your wife, run.”

Adeboye also counselled youths to be careful of lust, urging them to run away from anything that looks like sin.

He added, “And you girls, when you see a boy smiling at you saying, ‘Where have you been all my life? It looks as if the sun has just come out.’

“He is calling you sunshine. By the time he finishes with you, you won’t even know the difference between sunshine and sunset. You may laugh but mark my words.

“I do warn my children, particularly the boys. I said if the devil comes against you, tell the devil to get lost, but when you see a girl smiling at you in a funny way, run because you can’t win the battle.”
