‘Stop telling lies during wedding ceremonies’- Pastor (Mrs) Foluke Adeboye Warns
Pastor Mrs Folu Adeboye, wife of the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God has spoken against the idea of lying during Christian weddings.
In her meeting with women members of the Church at their 65th Annual Convention, she spoke on a variety of things including the banning ‘Aso Ebi’ from Church programs.
‘Aso ebi’ is the Yoruba word for ‘common cloth’ or ‘unity cloth’ for a particular occasion which must be worn by all participants. She emphasised that the ungodly practice of compelling women members to wear ‘Aso ebi’ for church programs was common.
She also frowned at the idea of telling petty lies during Christian wedding engagement, where those conducting such events would have to engage in lies to make money from the attendees.
According to her, there is no white or black lie, small or big lie with God. She stressed that when attendees are asked to bring air fare to fly in an item already provided for at the event venue, those involved were simply engaging in an ungodly and sinful act.
In the meeting which attracted several thousands of women, Mrs Adeboye was very frank and blunt about the ungodly pracitices prevalent in the church and resolved to stop such practices.
She called for moderation among Christian women, saying that their focus should be bringing halleluyah and spirituality into their homes and not engaging in the ungodly acts of the unbelievers.
