Social Media was thrown into frenzy when a video of the General Overseer of Redeemed Christian Church of God Pastor EA Adeboye, asking his congregation not to marry a lady who cannot cook or pray for an hour a day. The video, which triggered mixed reactions, has been the subject of discussion among many Nigerians.
In the video, Pastor Adeboye said: “Don’t marry a man who has no job. Before God gave Adam Eve, he gave him a job. He said this is the garden, keep it. So those who come to you and say sister, thus saith the lord, you are going to be the star in my firmament, ask him what is his job. If he tells you he is a contractor, ask him to show you evidence of all the contracts he has done because the contract he is talking about is you. He wants to live off you. Don’t be a fool. If he hasn’t got a steady income, don’t marry him.”
While many felt that it was way too much for a man of God to say such a thing openly, many also believe He has the right to express personal principles about marriage to his congregation.
