Pastor Adeboye Begs Church Members: 'Don't Post My Sermons On Social Media, Spare Me Insults & Criticisms'

The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, Pastor E.A Adeboye, has pleaded with youths in his church to desist from uploading his sermons on social media - and spare him the torrents of insult and criticisms he gets every time his messages go viral online.

He also begged his congregation not to quote him when sharing his sermons.

His request is coming months after the backlash he received online over his counsel to young men and women regarding marriage.

Recall months ago during a youth convention at his church - Adeboye warned women, “Don’t marry a man who has no job. Before God gave Adam Eve, he gave him a job.

He said, "This is the garden, keep it.’ So when anybody comes to you and say, ‘Sister, thus saith the Lord, you are going to be the star in my firmament,’ ask him — ‘What is your job?’

In the same vain, he also 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?"

Thousands of social media users blasted him over this message.

However, speaking during RCCG's youth program plenary session themed ‘vessels unto honour’ some days ago - the well respected pastor pleaded with his congregants to spare him the problem of social media by not uploading the program’s video on YouTube.

He said, “Spare me the problem. I’m not talking to you so that you can put me on YouTube,” the pastor pleaded.
