After Singer Timi Dakolo took to his Instagram handle to expose Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo who is the founder of the church for being a sexual predator; while some have criticized him heavily, others have also come to his defense.

Many of the people defending him referenced the phrase “Touch not my anointed and do my prophet no harm” asking that the Man of God be left for God alone to judge.

But reacting, a social commentator, Japheth Joshua Omojuwa, popularly known as JJ Omojuwa explained that Christian clergies have fraudulently exploited that verse of the bible.
He wrote: “Touch not my anointed and do my prophet no harm” is the immunity that never was. It’s one of the greatest scams around. Always do your best to read the verses that precede some of these popular verses. And the verses after that. No verse stands alone. The Bible is a thread”
According him the verse that was taken from the book of Psalm 105:15, was in fact not meant for pastors alone, but for all Christians.
He went further to explained that if one read from verse 1 to 15 of the entire chapter, it wouldn’t be hard to understand that the message wasn’t just referring to the clergies but the entire Christian faithful.
“Read Psalm 105. Start from verse 1. By the time you get to the 15th verse that says “touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm,” you would see that verse refers to the people of Israel. By New Testament evolution, that would be ALL Christians, not just “Pastors.”   He said.
You can read Psalm 105: 1-15 below;

Psalm 105

O give thanks to the Lord and call upon his name :
tell among the peoples what things he has done.
Sing to him, O sing praises :
and be telling of all his marvellous works.
Exult in his holy name :
and let those that seek the Lord be joyful in heart.
Seek the Lord and his strength :
O seek his face continually.
Call to mind what wonders he has done :
his marvellous acts, and the judgements of his mouth,
O seed of Abraham his servant :
O children of Jacob his chosen one.
For he is the Lord our God :
and his judgements are in all the earth.
He has remembered his covenant for ever :
the word that he ordained for a thousand generations,

The covenant that he made with Abraham :
the oath that he swore to Isaac,
And confirmed it to Jacob as a statute :
to Israel as an everlasting covenant,
Saying ‘I will give you the land of Canaan :
to be the portion of your inheritance’,
And that when they were but few :
little in number and aliens in the land.
They wandered from nation to nation :
from one people and kingdom to another.
He suffered no man to do them wrong :
but reproved even kings for their sake,
Saying ‘Touch not my anointed :
 and do my prophets no harm.
