Bishop Oyedepo Says Ladies Attitude Today Is Why Marriages Are Failing
He made this known at his Ota church on Sunda, he noted that the increasing call and approval of equality between women and men have spilled into their marital lives.
Adding that, such women now equate themselves with their husbands against the biblical doctrine that advises women to be submissive to their husbands and that men should love their wives. He said cases of divorce were most in the western world because people in such places have thrown the dictates of God away and have instead started imbibing self-made laws that confer on them near-absolute freedom.
This, he said, was partly the reason behind the laws approving homosexuality in such countries. He noted how he once mentioned that soon, it would no longer be news to find men and women marrying animals.
“Very soon, you would see a male President and the First Lady would be a man,” he said comically, but with some seriousness in his tone.
He lamented what the world, especially the west, was now turning into saying nowadays, “they take churches to court for refusing to marry men. That is how the world has turned.” He told the congregation that women must be submissive to their husbands and that if they follow such with prayers, even if such men are wayward, God would return them to the family.
He concluded that men should avoid being blown away by the things of the world as they must learn to love their wives as the Bible had warned.
