Today's Marriage Issues: Reactions to Pastor Adeboye’s Take

Many young ladies today don't know what marriage is and they don't even want to learn. You can as well park into a man's house as his lover, be sharing cooking with him, don't pray just live as you like and when you are tired you leave and go open up for another man. It's a free world, as they say.

In these days that men are killing women, cutting hands, injuries, etc. it's funny some, most of them single ladies, will be arguing with Pastor Adeboye who has been married successfully for decades.

The ongoing annual convention of Redeemed Christian Church of God, received enormous publicity on Tuesday. The publicity, however, came in a controversial manner.

Daddy GO, Pastor Enoch Adeboye in a message on marriage, stirred a widespread debate on social media, with thousands taking to the Internet to protest or support his positions on the categories of people Christians should not marry.

Pastor Adeboye, advised a congregation of bachelors and spinsters at the convention to avoid getting married to certain individuals in order to enjoy their marriages.

He urged bachelors to shun ladies who could not pray sincerely. He advised them against marrying “lazy” women as well as those who could not cook.

The cooking aspect particularly caught the attention of feminists. They protested the pastor’s remark.

Adeboye also warned ladies against accepting marriage proposals from “jobless” bachelors. He said those who could not earn incomes should hold on about marriage and sort out their issues.

A guy on twitter, Chinye Onwordi, said Pastor Adeboye’s advice had solved a persisting puzzle on the social media.

“Whether our ladies agree to cook when they marry or not, Adeboye has spoken the truth nobody should shy away from.”

One Ahmed Isah also wrote, “Adeboye, we thank you for ending this long debate. You spoke from a spiritual realm, not as a mere mortal.”
