A video has surfaced in which Nigerian cleric and General Overseer of The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye, threatened to kill anyone who messes with his wife.
Pastor Adeboye is married to Pastor Foluke.
In a live video in which the 78-years pastor was facilitating a virtual service on marriage, the clergyman is heard loud and clear saying he could stomach criticisms as well as insults from anyone but would not tolerate such for his wife and would go any length to protect his love for his sweetheart.
“I am sure you have heard me say it before. You can do whatever you like to me, you can criticize me, you can insult me, you can trample on me, I will only pray for you,”
he said in the video shared on his Instagram page.
“But if you mess around with my wife, I will kill you. I will kill you so thoroughly you won’t even be able to rise on the resurrection morning,” he added.
Pastor Adeboye is famed for his unusual teaching on marriage.
In May last year, he warned single ladies to avoid marrying jobless men. Jobless men, he said, have the tendencies to use, dump and abandon ladies.
According to him, a woman should not marry a man that has no work, “if not you will be the work.”
“My beloved daughters don’t marry a man who has no job. Before God gave Eve to Adam, he gave him a job. He said this is the garden, keep it.”
He went on to say it is not sinful for a single lady to politely ask any man proposing marriage whether he has a job.
“If he tells you that he’s a contractor, ask him to show you the evidence of all the contracts he’s done. Because the contract he’s talking about is you. He wants to live off you. Don’t be a fool.
If he hasn’t got a steady income, if he hasn’t got a job, don’t marry him. Go and get a job first. Men provide for the house, not the other way round. Those who would not work, should not eat, and if they can’t eat, they can’t even marry.”
