Pastor Folu Adeboye, the wife of the General Overseer of the RCCG made headlines last week when she advised youths at a conference to seek their pastors consent first before their parents whenever they are ready to get married.
“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.” She was quoted saying.
Her statement caused mixed reactions on social media and it has led to Reno Omokri reacting to the instructions of Mummy G.O, as she’s fondly called.
Taking to his famous twitter handle, Reno wrote ;
“From Genesis to Revelation, biblical marriage has always been a family affair, not a church issue. Do not be deceived by any pastor, no matter how highly placed. Take your guidance from the Bible, not man. Get parental consent, not pastoral consent. Honour parents
“Read the entire Bible yourself. Nowhere does anyone consult a priest before choosing a marriage partner. Isaac consulted his parents not a preist. Jacob consulted his parents not a propher. The 10 commandments COMMAND you to honour your parents not your pastor”
