Controversial Nigerian Bishop David Oyedepo, has criticised women who identified themselves as feminists against getting married.
The clergyman, who gave the advice during a sermon to his congregation, specifically warned women against joining the feminist movement as he stated that feminism would lead to frustration and devastation.
He stated, “If feminist revolution is your vision, don’t attempt to get married, because it won’t work.”
Oyedepo lamented the alarming rate at which women nowadays ignored the Bible’s instruction to submit to their husbands because they regarded such instructions as outdated.
According to him, when the Bible says “submit yourself to your husband in everything,” women respond by saying, “No, not today, that was before. Right now, nobody can do that. We are co-heirs, male and female, no difference.”
Oyedepo continued, saying such women thought they were too smart for God to lead them.
He said when they were told that “This is the way to go,” they respond saying, “No, let me educate you, God. You didn’t go to school, did you?”
The clergyman continued, “Right now, there is a feminine revolution. Then you get into feminine frustration and destiny devastation.
“You know something; no book on earth will ever overtake the Bible in currency. It is the eternal truth. While the earth remains, the truth of scriptures remains in force, you either choose to follow or go your way.
“For we can do nothing against the truth – no matter what civilisation we are talking about – but for the truth at all times.
“If feminist revolution is your vision, don’t attempt to get married, because it won’t work.”
