The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye is definitely not a fan of the ‘Beard Gang’ and has frowned at ministers of the gospel growing beards in the name of new fashion, which he has likened to “fellows in Al Qaeda training”. He also advised men not to marry a girl who can’t cook or pray for an hour.
Daddy G.O, as he is fondly called by his followers made the comments recently in an article published in Vanguard
We are not owing anybody any salary. I don’t want to see any of my pastors looking like fellows from the training camps of Al-Qaeda. They (The youth) often look up to their fathers for direction but if a father himself does not know what he is doing then there something wrong. The youths don’t respect an elder that looks like them. You are supposed to be their guiding light after they have fooled around
Daddy GO also gave young men advice on choosing a wife, telling them not to marry a woman who cannot cook or pray for an hour.
“Don’t marry a girl who is lazy! Don’t marry a girl who cannot cook, she needs to know how to do chores and cook because you cannot afford to be eating out all the time.
Don’t marry a girl simply because she can sing! In the choir there are some people that can sing but they are fallen angels! Marry a prayer warrior! If a girl cannot pray for one hour, don’t marry her.
Don’t marry a girl who is worldly! If you do, you have carried what you’ll worship for the rest of your life!
Don’t ever marry outside the church and you have no reason to marry outside RCCG. The reason is that if you are both from the same church even when trouble comes it is easier for the pastors to handle it”.
