A few days ago we told you about Redeemed Christian Church of God’s Pastor Adeboye‘s
advice to singles about choosing life partners. The General Overseer of
the popular church has everyone talking particularly when he said men
must marry a woman who can cook and pray at least one hour daily.
And one more person who is weighing in on the controversial cooking matter that has split opinion down the middle is Charly Boy.
He does not agree with Daddy GO and has said the pastor was misyarning…as marriage shouldn’t define people.
Read his entire response below:
Must you Marry?
For the past few days, pastor Adeboye’s advice to youths on marriage
have been trending all over the place. I suspect that the good pastors
yarns tells me that he is a man suspended in time, between old and new
school. Don’t get it twisted, in as much as I flow with his definition
of a good woman, from his statement I see that the obvious way to his
heart is through his stomach and of cause through prayers. Good, No
However our amiable pastor rubs it in when he starts to yarn Akpata, ”
Marry a warrior, if a girl cannot pray for one hour, don’t marry her.
Don’t marry a girl who is lazy, who cannot cook. She needs to know how
to do chores and cook because you cannot afford to eat out at all times”
Hummm na wa! Really? Seriously?
So if my wife to be can’t rant, chant, shout and generally carry on as a
prayer warrior, praying for a whole hour, the woman doesn’t deserve a
wife status. Abi?
Oga pastor, that one na missyarn. Over praying does not make one a
better husband or wife, because the world especially Naija is filled
with Fake people and “Fakest” pastors. Does a man having a job guarantee
that he will make a good husband? Does a woman knowing how to cook
guarantee she will make a good wife? Haba.
Ok I get it, The Nigerian god has an ear infection, so we must shout
and pray for hours because that’s the only way he may listen to our
prayers, right? I know that a man is suppose to marry a helper and not a
cook or a house girl. By the way, is anything wrong with encouraging
your young male congregation to learn how to cook and do chores too. “Do
not marry a worldly lady” what the heck does that mean? Is it about
being materialistic or just being fashionable, looking nice. I guess in
your book we can’t be a good Christian if we got swagg and we are
trendy. Judge not pastor. We must all not look like Deeper Life people
to have a personal relationship with God. By the way, if you want to
start writing your own commandment you may as well write your own
version of the bible for your congregation. Na una way.
Being married should never define a man or a woman. Marriage in a few years anyways, will be out of fashion.
