Pastor (Mrs) Folu Adeboye Explains Her Controversial Marriage Advice |Video

With the advent of social media came a lot of 1-minute ‘journalists’ who would pick up the first word that comes their way, without verifying the source and authenticity of such information; and they would ‘run’ with it unmindful of the damage it could wrought.

Journalism, as a profession, thrives on the 5Ws and H -Who, What, When, Where, Why and How- if it’s going to be regarded as news.

More so, there is a need to add a sense of responsibility to whatever you aim to do.

A wise saying opines that, “Rumour dies when it gets into the ears of the wise.”

Comedian, Osundare DamilareAsiri Comedy‘ seem to fit the above description perfectly with a laudable step he recently took on an issue that’s gone viral.

During the ongoing youth convention in the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), the wife of the General Overseer, Pastor Mrs. Folu Adeboye, 70, asked intending couples to seek counsel from their pastors before their parents.

In her words, “There should be no confusion in the house of God. You have to go to your Pastor first to consult for marriage before your parent.”

Are these people beginning to manifest early signs of senility? – These teachings have no recourse to the Bible! Jesus himself said you shouldn’t give money meant for your parents to the temple, let alone this trash. – I hope these people have access to the wealth and the airplane she and her husband are flying, when they have finished helping them take all these decisions for them?🙄 ~FRZ – #FreeTheSheeple – â—„ Matthew 15 â–º New International Version [3] Jesus replied, “And why do you break the command of God for the sake of your tradition? [4] For God said, ‘Honor your father and mother’ a and ‘Anyone who curses their father or mother is to be put to death.’ [5] But you say that if anyone declares that what might have been used to help their father or mother is ‘devoted to God,’ [6] they are not to ‘honor their father or mother’ with it. Thus you nullify the word of God for the sake of your tradition. [7] You hypocrites! Isaiah was right when he prophesied about you:

Below are some of the reactions that followed Daddy Freeze‘s counter-reaction to the Pastor’s submission.

An Instagram user @iamchris_j_ commented:

“Are u always so stupid or is it on special occasions? No I bet that’s the way u are. I swear You’re a living proof that man can live without a brain. You’re the kind of a man they should use as a blueprint to build an idiot. These are ethical moral values and steps one should follow in the household of Faith. I bet u never had a Mother or Did your parents ever ask you to run away from home? For your mind now you’re attacking people, Dickhead u ain’t attacking anyone u just spraining your brains cos whenever u think they get sprained and gebbrish comes out of that stinking mouth of yours. For Anyone who cares to know, Your pastors are your spiritual parents, while your parents the physical. And as we know the spiritual controls the Physical. If you’ve got a real pastor, u should go to him first during marriage issues. To get spiritual counseling, guardianship and more importantly prayers.Go get a life Freeze!”

An Instagram user @realqueenekamma commented:

“When our parents and our fore parents got married in those days, it got nothing to do with the pastors, there were no pastors to approach when it got to the issues of marriage, it was all about family members, and the marriage of those days lasted longer with much fear and mutual understanding invested in it,
Today the churches have succeeded in destroying the family bond, everybody in one’s family are now witches and wizards that one is advised by the churches to keep away from our family members except our church members,
We can’t do anything on our own again until we consult our pastors,
Our parents who brought us into the world that didn’t harm us when we were young are now the witches and wizards that are after our lives,
We are advised to take our daddy and mummy in the church as our parents while the church members are now our family,”

Asiri Comedy also took to his Instagram page to lend a voice to the ongoing discussion but he did so from an angle of responsibility; and it is worthy of note.

He wrote:

“Just last week I was jokingly telling someone that there will be a special judgment category for keypad gazelles. Keypad gazelless are those that jump on info without getting the full story. Its noble to get a clear perspective on issues before donating opinions which are otherwise not needed in the first place. Don’t be a keypad gazelles. Don’t forget gazelles are appetizers for Lions in the wild. Be wise. Upgrade. Be a Lion not a gazelle. Be bold be calculative Be discerning. You don’t need an interpreter to understand what Mama was saying. Did she downplay the place of parents? NO She was simply giving wisdom to achieve order in the HOUSE of God.”
