The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor E.A Adeboye, on Tuesday, August 2, advised single men not to marry women who cannot cook, that are lazy and cannot pray for at least one hour.
The head pastor also advised women not to marry men who do not have jobs. He 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.”
For sometime now the argument had been raging on social media about the suitability of cooking as a prerequisite for marriage. However Daddy G.O’s statement has sparked reactions on social media, as some congregates believe that the pastor’s message will reduce their chances of getting a spouse.
Pastor Adeboye is ignorant??
