Pastor E.A Adeboye, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, has begged youths of the church to stop uploading his videos or quoting him on social media.
The general overseer said this in order for him to be spared the torrents of backlash from such uploaded posts attracted from millions of social media users.
This is coming after the pastor received serious backlash over his counsel to young men and women concerning marriage.
Speaking during the church’s youth program plenary session themed ‘vessels unto honour’ some days ago, the popular pastor pleaded with the participants to spare him the problem of social media by not uploading the program’s video on YouTube.
“Spare me the problem. I’m not talking to you so that you can put me on YouTube.”
Some months ago, Pastor Adeboye in a video, warned women,
“Don’t marry a man who has no job. Before God gave Adam Eve, he gave him a job” and advised men,
“Marry a prayer warrior! Don’t marry any girl who cannot pray for one hour non-stop. Don’t marry a girl who is lazy! If she is lazy when she is single, what will happen if she is married?”
Many social media users lambasted the man of God following his message.
