Pastor Adeboye Gives Advice On Marriage
A series of tweets on Wednesday by Pastor Enoch Adeboye, the General overseer of Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) has caused sharp contentions on Twitter.
The revered cleric had shaken a table when he decided to address the issue of married people who still have crushes on other sexes apart from their spouses.
Pastor Adeboye noted in his submission that many who failed to deal with the issue of ‘crushes’ are now dealing with bigger issues of infidelity and even adultery.
He urged Christians to take their marriage seriously, challenging them to cut off whatever could make them contemplate adultery.
He then said: “Today, I will be focusing on the married. It is sad that many married people are still having crushes with persons apart from their spouses. “If there is any fellow aside from your spouse you are admiring unduly, you must see such a person as the devil and get rid of them immediately.”
Pastor Adeboye then went ahead to cite an example of how, he charged his “son” to sack his secretary whom he has been admiring at work – a submission that has attracted different reactions from Nigerians.
He said: “One of my sons once told me that he was always excited to resume in the office every Monday because he would get to see his secretary again. I told him to fire her immediately. Nothing and no one is worth your marriage.”

He said many other things on how to protect one’s marriage but many have chosen to focus on his ‘order’ to sack the lady.
See some reactions that have trailed the statement by Pastor Adeboye:
Even people that won’t let their partners keep besties of the opposite sex are condemning Pastor Adeboye…lol
I don’t agree with his thread but most of you won’t say pim if your partner pulls that move.
Infact you’d even feel “special” talmbout “cut him/her off for me”

If a Feminist says.
“Men are scum, they can’t hold their sexual urges”
Una go complain.
But Pastor Adeboye instead of telling His Son to Man up and bury his sexual urges.
Told his boy to sack a staff for merely existing.
U lot are defending it.
Low quality men🤝 hypocrisy

“Pastor Adeboye, Crush that Crush is for married people, right? That means the son & secretary are not single, right? That means for your MARRIAGE to work, no room for David & Bathsheba drama, right?
Take the lessons & stop this follow the crowd mentality.

My sister if you chase away your help cos you feel she might tempt your hubby then you have no right to blast Pastor Adeboye. Like the only crime your help commited is developing breast and growing into a beautiful woman. Everyone is woke on social media ,hypocrites..

pastor adeboye told his son to sack his secretary because of the excitement he get around her
Mathew 5:29 If your right eye causes you to stumble,gouge it out & throw it away
People criticizing adeboye are Christians who don’t read bible
Stop adding civilization into religion.
