Pastor Laments Rising Cases Of Divorce Even In Churches

Our Lord Jesus Christ said in Matthew 19:9 -
"And I say to you, whoever Divorces his wife, except for S*xual Immorality, and marries another, commits ADULTERY; and whoever marries the woman who is Divorced commits ADULTERY."

God's law is clear; "Thou shall not commit Adultery." And the Bible makes it clear in 1 Corinthians 6:9&10 - 'Fornicators, Adulterers, etc. can't make Heaven.'

So be VERY careful how you follow misguided people on social media to think you can Divorce just anyhow you like; unless your destiny is to go to HELL Fire...
Pastor Adebola Ogunleye of the Foursquare Gospel Church on Sunday in Lagos said that the rate of divorce among Christians was becoming alarming.

Delivering a sermon entitled, “Maximizing Godly Impact for the Family”, the cleric said family strife was on the rise and urged brethren to address root causes of marriage problems leading to divorce.

“Today, it is no longer news that pastors are beating up their wives and divorce has crept into the church.

Divorce of convenience is what we see in the church today. It is becoming a vogue in church which must stop,” he said.

He called on couples to constantly review their relationships and correct all the wrongs, adding that they should also seek Godly counsel from church elders where there were bigger issues they could not handle alone.

He also warned against wrong counsels and advised couples to guide against external influences that could cause trouble in the home and family.

He urged women to be submissive to their husbands and husbands to always love their wives and guide against ungodly ego that could affect harmony in marriage.

He listed factors for having Godly homes to include, positive personal principles, proactive parenting and prayerfulness.

He said that each member of the family had a role to play, adding that they all needed to make personal decisions to make the home work.

He explained that Satan attacked the first family of Adam by causing hatred and division that led one of the children, Cain, to kill his brother, Abel.

He added that Satan was still attacking marriages and families till today.

He stressed the need for peace and harmony in the home to create a conducive atmosphere for raising Godly children.

“We must let our children know it should be God first, God last, God in between and God always. Teach them to know that God is not an option, God should be everything."
