The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye, said on Sunday, he won’t mind laying down his life for his wife, adding he was ready to kill for the sake of his wife.
Adeboye said he won’t mind killing anybody who touches his wife, Pastor (Mrs) Foluke Adeboye.
He said, although he could not do anything to anybody who slaps, criticizes or lies against him, but to do such against his wife, he would kill the person.
The man of God who stated this during a Sunday service while delivering a message titled “Activating Your Destiny” at the National Headquarters of RCCG, Throne of Grace Parish, Ebutte Meta, Lagos, said the kind of killing he meant was not with gun, cutlass or physical but with prayer .
According to him, “Be ready to lay down your life for your partner if you are truly in love.
“My wife does not like me saying this: ‘You can slap me; you can lie against me, you can criticise me, it does not bother me, but touch my wife, I will kill you!
“I want the world to hear. They will say if I kill, they will arrest me, jail me, that is if I kill with cutlass or gun.
“If you tamper with my wife, I will talk to my Daddy and you will sleep and will not wake. “If you want to marry a person who is influential, marry a pastor. If he does not fall into sin, he will remain a pastor forever.
“Marry for love. It will endure. I have been married for 50 years and still on honeymoon. I was the poorest among those lurking around the girl I married.
“One was a lawyer who had a car; I had nothing. But I told the girl that if you marry me, whatever I am, wherever I ever become, will be yours.
“I was not a Christian, but i was an incurable optimist. We struggled over ‘pomo’ as I usually hear me say, but today if we want to eat a cow now, God will provide.
“After our wedding in September 8, 1967, we faced challenges. The baby came 1968. It was tough. We were happy because we were in love.
“I had no car, no house, a marriage into a rented room and a parlour. We have stories to tell. If you marry for love, the reason it will last is because God is love.
“You must continue to tend the fire, meaning: no matter how little, you must constantly give gifts to your partner. If it’s given in love, it’ll be appreciated.
“When two people are in love, they exchange gifts. Always open your mouth to say to your partner ‘I love you.”
