The publisher of ENDTIME Journal International, a Christian journal, Dr. David Lucas, has said he was misled by one of his assistants (name withheld) over alleged malicious publication against prominent clergymen in the country. He said this at a press conference at Faith Revival Assembly Church on Friday.

Lucas said, “Most of the reports were provided by one of my assistants. He told me he had revelation on some of the stories he provided to us. As a minister myself, I did not doubt him and we slammed them. With what is happening now, I can see that most of the reports were not real.

“I have decided to apologise to all those wronged in our reports. However, my vision from God since in my college days was to report the activities of the churches and unveil their doings. It is unfortunate the revelation turned out to be false. Right now, as I speak to you, he is cooling off his heals in police detention. He caused all the problems. I did not have to doubt his revelation since he is an apostle of Christ Apostolic Church in Egbeda, Lagos.”

He said inasmuch as most of the reports were not true, he insisted that some were real, but did not shed much on those he claimed were true. He asked readers to discountenance most of the reports in the volume, saying that they were false. The journal had in its vol. 14 numbers 6 and 9 alleged that some prominent 'Men of God' were diabolical, occultic or randy.

The banal headlines of the journal reads, 'Redeemed Church pastors plot against Adeboye,' 'God's warning: Adeboye to start winding up,' Bishop Oyedepo, Oyakhilome, Olukoya, Obembe, Abiara, others may face God's wrath,' 'T.B. Joshua faces God's condemnation,' and 'Prophet Abiara kills his junior pastor,' among others.
