The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has once again warned against the practice of finding spouses on social media platforms.
He stressed that it is totally wrong for anyone to go into marriage relationship via the social media without finding out the background of would-be partners.
Adeboye recalled how in the past parents would inquire about prospective spouses before approving marriages for their children.
The cleric said he had pity for the youth whose parents were involved in evil as such evil often affected their spiritual and physical development.
He noted that elders of those days were uneducated but very rich in knowledge.
Adeboye gave spoke at the April 2018 Holy Ghost Service and Vigil of the Church at its prayer ground in Mowe, Ogun State, on Kilometre 45 of Lagos – Ibadan Expressway, which ended on Saturday.
“If you marry on Facebook, you cannot tell what will come,” he warned.
The monthly programme was attended by Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo and his wife, Dolapo, as well as thousands of Christian faithful.
Adeboye had in 2017 warned members of his congregation not to engage in romantic relationship on social media.
He stated that such relationships might lead to broken homes.
“Let me tell you clearly, if you get a wife through the Facebook, you will lose her through the YouTube. You can quote me,” he had warned.
