A Nigerian pastor has advised people who do not understand God’s directive in the Bible that women should remain silent in churches to argue with God if they find it too hard to comprehend.
Chibuzor Ukaonu, head pastor of Restored Bible Tabernacle in Lagos, said it has been spelt out clearly in the Bible that women should always be under stewardship of men in the house of the lord.
In a video posted on the church’s official Instagram page, the pastor mentioned that it is the commandment of God for women to keep silent and stay under obedience in churches
Backing his sermon with Bible verses, 1st Timothy 2:11-12, 1st Timothy 3:1-2 and 1st Corinthians 14:33-35, Pastor Ukaonu noted that the apostle Paul cursed whoever preached anything contrary to those verses.
He said: ‘’You may listen to it somehow, you see it somehow but the truth is the truth.’’ The pastor explained that the commandment existed in the Old Testament and had not changed in the New Testament, noting that whoever disagreed with his sermon should argue with God.
His posture on the subject irked a lot of people online who blasted him and the christian dogma in general, saying religion oppresses women should be done away with.
