74-year General Overseer of the Redeemed Christen Church of God (RCCG) Pastor E A Adeboye has said that he meant every-word he said about marriage during the recently concluded RCCG 64th annual convention.
Adeboye, who evidently was reacting to reactions that trailed his warnings to the youths of the church at RCCG 64th annual convention also said that his words are not for everyone.
Adeboye, worried about various reports of arranged marriages among brethren at 64th annual convention of the church which took place between 1st — 7th of August warned that ”no RCCG pastor should be seen to be involved in arranging marriages among brethren in the church.
Pastor Adeboye who had earlier counselled the youths of the church on marriage, further warned saying “don’t ever marry outside the church and you have no reason to marry outside RCCG.
“Don’t marry a girl simply because she can sing!
“In the choir there are some people that can sing but they are fallen angels! Marry a prayer warrior! If a girl cannot pray for one hour, don’t marry her.
“Don’t marry a girl who is lazy! Don’t marry a girl who cannot cook, she needs to know how to do chores and cook because you cannot afford to be eating out all the time.
“Don’t marry a girl who is worldly! If you do, you have carried what you’ll worship for the rest of your life!”
