Following several weeks of media debate over his sermon on marriage, the General Overseer of Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has finally come out to respond to critics.
Recall, the man of God had bluntly advised against marrying women who can neither cook nor pray for one hour, advising ladies also, not to marry men who are without jobs.
In his sermon he said:
Marry a prayer warrior! Don’t marry any girl who cannot pray for one hour non-stop. Don’t marry a girl who is lazy! If she is lazy when she is single, what will happen if she is married?
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 when anybody comes to you and say, ‘Sister, thus saith the Lord, you are going to be the star in my firmament,’ ask him — ‘What is your job?’
These messages went on to cause serious media debate as even few celebrities joined in chastising the man of God for his advise. Not having anymore of the criticism, Pastor Adeboye, has finally spoken up, making it known that his message is not for everyone.
My messages are not for everybody. So, I plead with you, ask God to speak to you specifically.
