Founder of the Living Faith Church Worldwide, popularly known as Winners’ Chapel, Bishop David Oyedepo, has advised young singles not to jump into marriage because of money.
Bishop Oyedepo during Sunday service on the 29th of August urged young people to not look at the now when choosing a life partner whilst citing himself and his wife as an example.
According to him, he didn’t look like someone who’d have money but now, one of the richest pastors in the world from the ‘Forest’.
He concluded that status, education, and money should not be a criterion when choosing a person to get married to.
He said; ‘You don’t jump into marriage because somebody has money. I didn’t have no money. I didn’t look like someone who will have money. Just one boy who doesn’t know what he is saying, always saying, “Jesus loves you.”
Did we say, “He hates us before”? You think this man has any future? There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.
“You couldn’t imagine that you could see the meaning of wealth and now they say, He is the richest Pastor in the world. From the forest.
“They have a right to say that because he doesn’t borrow, he doesn’t beg and yet he doesn’t lack. Then what is wealth?
“For someone to say, “you can’t marry that person. You know your status, my status in town, you want to marry somebody who is …! Don’t let me talk nonsense to you.
“There are some parents like that: they are the ones to marry their daughter to somebody.
“How many degrees does he have?” Only one. No, not in this family, we don’t have one degree here! Then marry her. You are the father, be the father and husband.”
