Nigerians have taken on social media faulted the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye’s approach to ask his son to sack his secretary in order for his son to avoid falling into the sin of adultery.
Recall that Pastor Adeboye took to his Twitter page on Wednesday, January 29, to share -marriage advice to couples as he asked them to “crush that crush.”
The cleric said in a message titled, “Crush that crush,” that it was important for married couples to keep their bodies holy like the temple of God.
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.
“What is a married woman doing on the phone with another man for countless minutes? Why would a married man be spending so much time with another man’s wife? Why would you prefer to discuss intimate issues with your friend of the opposite s-x instead of your God-given spouse?”
The RCCG overseer asked married couples to spend more time together and exchange compliments.
In the reactions of some feminists on social media, however, faulted Adeboye’s approach to tackling adultery.
They argued that an innocent woman ought not to be fired because her boss was developing s-xual feelings for her.
@Zaddy_nomso tweeted, “Pastor Adeboye you told your son to fire a lady that is innocently working to make ends meet, she should be rendered jobless for no reason.”
@IamAbioduAa also tweeted, “Before you start supporting Pastor Adeboye on this matter, remember this, that lady might be the breadwinner of one family, sacking her for the inability of his son to hold himself is a selfish and wrong decision.”
But @Edmundoris supported the cleric, saying, “If you’re a Christian and you have issues with what Pastor Adeboye said concerning sacking the secretary, then something is wrong somewhere to be honest. You need to go back and actually read your bible again.”
Some other feminists wondered if Adebayo would have asked his son to resign if he had said he was developing s-xual feelings for his female boss.
