The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christen Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye last Sunday advised Christian singles to desist from choosing life partners from the social media, adding that marriage contracted through such medium does not last.
Giving the advice during a special prayer/thanksgiving service for matured youths, singles, single parents and their family members at the RCCG National Headquarters, Throne of Grace Parish in Ebute-Meta, Lagos, Pastor Adeboye pointed out that choosing partners through social media platform often results in unstable marriages.
“If you are expecting a marriage that will last, let it be one that is arranged by God. Let me tell you clearly, if you get a wife through FaceBook, you will lose her through the YouTube. You can quote me. Any marriage that is conducted through the FaceBook is going to crash through the YouTube.
No doubt about that. ‘Our forefathers have already said it and the translation is what I have already given you. In Yoruba they said: Iyawo taba fi ijo fe, iran loma wo lo. ‘Let God decide for you because when the Almighty God decides to give you your own partner, any obstruction in your way, He will destroy. He is the Lord of hosts.
He has never lost a battle”. In a sermon titled: “Joy Cometh”, the revered man of God urged singles to wait patiently on the Lord for His guidance and they must not be carried away by beauty as yardstick for their chose of a life partner.
