Are Nigerian Pastors Encouraging Slavery through Marriage?

Guys, I saw this write-up and I thought it wise to share it with the house, I believe this guy is suffering from either a broken relationship or he has a personal beef with a pastor, in my opinion the writer of the article is an ANGRY MAN probably just coming out of a failed marriage anointed by a pastor.



...... the writer asserts that Pastors have taken the place of God telling people who to marry and he said pastors
should not interfere when someone chooses who he/she wants to marry.


what do you think, this is the summary........ Read some part for yourself....

If your pastor chose for you who to marry, you have already signed your death warrant. You will cry, even if you are laughing now. You are in bondage, locked in the vomit of men. All tables are full of vomit, and who shall be taught knowledge? Don't bother to run away from trouble: it is in your house to stay.

I have never ceased to marvel about the sheer impudence of prophets telling people who to marry. I have carefully studied the Bible: nowhere do I find Peter or Paul choosing wives for people. Picture this: a scoundrel in suit clears his throat, goes into mad prayer, and then pronounces: "No road there."

And the boy or girl weeps: the Pastor has said that he/she cannot marry the person after his/her heart. A lot of educated Nigerians are in the firm grip of these pastors, these worthless criminals who propagate a marriage ministry, the kind one cannot find in Josephus or any other Christian historian.

It is a shame, but one pastor was actually cursing a relation of mine on his wedding day. "If you divorce this woman, cursed are you ... " And on and on he went, threatening fire and brimstone. These are the hollow men, the wicked men, the slave drivers, the Pharaohs, the men of perdition. When the Lord Himself was invited to a wedding, He was there to bless, not to curse. He added value, and he did not join anyone together. I wonder where these buffoons got their "By the powers conferred on me, I pronounce you husband and wife." Powers conferred by who? English culture, maybe, but certainly not God Almighty. God created man a free moral agent: pastors have made slaves of men, and they will dissolve in sulphur when the time comes.

Some pastors even tell girls who are above 30: It is the Holy Ghost that you need first, not a husband, as if they were the Holy Ghost giver. What foolishness. The girl's body demands sex, and she needs precisely what she is asking for: a husband. These are Pharisees who lay grievous burden on people, but will not touch it with one of their fingers. There is a law of biology which God Almighty put in the human body, and no amount of spiritual abracadabra will change it.

Sex is a legitimate need of an adult, a legitimate feeling. You can prophesy for ten hours, I don't care. Or tell the lie that "Jesus is my husband," as one hypocrite said in Ondo years back. She was later to be caught praying: "Lord, when will you give me my own husband?" I laughed when her younger brother told me the story. Holy sister, you need a husband. Did you hear me? Stop clutching pillows at night. Go for gold or drown in dust.

Well, some of these girls are over-wise. They will look for a Brother who has a future (i.e good prospects) and say that they saw it in their dream that he is the chosen one. They will never see the Brother who is a tyre or bicycle repairer in their dream. And the so-called Brothers are looking for sisters with a future and a background, meaning a sister endowed in the proper places. This is another evil that I have seen under the sun.



Oh my God, how these born-again folks are suffering from segxwal bondage and claiming that they are fighting the devil!

I am not a fool: I know that a man needs a woman, and vice versa. When you return from work, exhausted, there is nothing as great as a welcoming kiss. But some women, when their husband returns, hiss and tell their friend: "As I was saying ... "These are wicked women with wicked friends with wicked souls.

Pastors should stop enslaving the people, or they will soon be deregulated. There are too many pastors in this country. Advice for the wicked: if you do not like to hear the truth, please fight it. It will be your doom.

Well. An adult does not need somebody else to get him or her bathed in the bathroom as a child does.

Pastors are there for spiritual guidance and counseling or advice  but it is also up to you to make your choice as an adult.

Even Christ has warned against the dependence on fellow humans on many occasions in the bilble.

I fully agree wit d writer of d passage. It amazes me wat pastors are turning/already av turned to these days. A lady in Abuja has just told my roomate here in Dubai that of all the names of suitors she submitted to her pastor, my friend's name is the God's chosen!
Note: they're only frnds on facbuk, nt seen eachoda b4! Wonder y God dint choose many other suitors in Naija!

Meanwhile my padi here is planning a wonderful wedding wit his own other "God's chosen" lady this December.
Who is the confusionist here? the lady, d pastor, my frnd or "God" ?

Is left for you to make a decision of your own once it comes to marriage because is your life and no one can live your life for you, even those called the men of God.

well, dear poster, its not good to judge........."judge not so that ye wouldnt be judge". On the other hand, we need to be carefull about some pastors, nobody knows who is who.
About the marriage issue, i believe in the bible that says "HE THAT FINDETH A WIFE, FINDETH A GOOD THING AND  OBTAINS FAVOUR FROM THE LORD" and not "he that findeth a wife, findeth a good thing and get APPROVAL from the pastor. If you find a wife/husband and you know deep within you that you are compatible with such person, why not go on your knees and pray....... and God will answer you. Why get an approval from a pastor?Huh??

We need to be careful........I REST MY CASE.

Lolz- our culture in naija means that single women in their 20s r pressurized by their frns n family. Such a shame cuz that pressure makes them think there is sumthing wrong n they tend to seek answers in anyway, shape or form.
