Comedian Vs Pastors War: MC Abbey Slams Mike Bamiloye For Criticizing Comedians Performing In Church


As calls for the eradication of comedy performances inside Churches begins to gain more ground, MC Abbey, a popular comedian with a gospel background has called out the President of Mount Zion Faith Ministries International (a Christian Film/Drama organisation), Mike Bamiloye, who proposed the motion for the elimination.
Mike Bamiloye had said, invitation of comedians to churches is an aberration to the gospel of Jesus Christ because, laughing at “jokes of scriptures, the Blood of Jesus, speaking in tongues, the throne of grace etc,” is a mockery of God.


Since Mike said this, there have been supports from different groups who sees this as wakeup call which will allow churches to have a rethink on the idea of bringing comedians into the church and allow them to mock the gospel.
But in a heated reply, MC Abbey took to his Instagram page to view his mind.
He wrote: “I read all this ungodly write-ups against gospel comedy in church by respected people and I just wonder…
30yrs ago that’s how drama was condemned in the church by people who like to box God and play God until they saw the light. There reasons to them were valid bcos the alter is sacred so nor drama acts should be on the alter… Did it hold?… U can’t fight what God has blessed, yes there is need to caution some comedians likewise musicians and preacher who do erroneously but Pls do not insult or discredit the place of gospel comedy in church cos u will be making a great mistake…
I take out time in prayers and fasting to prepare bfr climbing and alter for inspiration and I get it and u are there trying to discredit my relationship with God vis-a-vis my ministry as a comedian cos u don’t understand it and later u say the Holy Spirit told u plssssss just shut up ! Wch Holy Spirit, the one that I get inspiration from or another or do we now have two Holy Spirit setting confusion in the body of Christ or just some people with shallow revelation of our faith sounding spiritual…
Don’t get things and people confused gospel comedy is not jesting, jesting means coarse and vulgar, we don’t do that so stop quoting scriptures out of context…eph5:4(amp version)  Let there be no filthiness and silly talk, or coarse [obscene or vulgar] joking, because such things are not appropriate [for believers]; but instead speak of your thankfulness [to God]…now that’s jesting and authentic gospel comedians don’t Jest…#beenlightened #enoughsaid”
