Pastor Akinlabi made this revelation in Lagos recently while speaking as a guest speaker at the 15th Annual Luncheon and Awards of the Special Members Forum of The Bible Society of Nigeria.
The man of God said that when he was a Muslim, he was made to read the Koran which he could not understand. “At an early age, I was made to read the Koran in Arabic. I kept reading and memorizing it without understanding what I was reading. When I gave my life to Christ, I found the Bible in my mother tongue which helped me to easily understand the word of God,” he said.
Speaking further, Pastor Akinlabi said, “Our work is to raise disciples for Christ. It becomes easy to do that when you can get people to read the Bible in the language they understand. It was easy for me with the help of the Holy Spirit to understand the Bible because I read it in my language.”
He commended The Bible Society of Nigeria for translating the Bible into Nigerian Languages which he said would help majority of the people understand the word of God without interpreters.
