13th of July, 2020, the wife to the General Overseer of The Redeemed Christian of God, Pastor Foluke Adeboye turned a year older.
The cleric, Pastor E.A Adeboye, however, took to his social media pages to celebrate his dear wife thereby stating in clear terms some of the spices that has been keeping his marriage healthy, blossom and flourishing for over 52 years.
Adeboye, showered encomium on his wife for being submissive and never for once allotted her primary duties to anyone despite how busy she has been. He further listed some of the things she does which includes cooking his food, serving his food by herself and also trimming his nails.
His birthday note stirred reactions from feminists on twitter that saw his statement as a way of diminishing the female gender and airing his masculinity.
However, the president of Mount Zion Faith Ministries, Evangelist Mike Bamiloye has registered his dissatisfaction with a post titled “THE WRECKLESS YOUTHS OF THE BETHEL CITY” chiefly to those that criticized Pastor E.A Adeboye over his birthday post to celebrate his wife.
In his post, he condemned the act and tagged it “a lack of respect” towards a man of God who has been undeniably favored and has also enjoyed what marriage is for 52 years unaltered.
THE WRECKLESS YOUTHS OF THE BETHEL. CITY!
2 Kings 2:23-25 NKJV
 Then he went up from there to Bethel; and as he was going up the road, some youths came from the city and mocked him, and said to him, “Go up, you baldhead! Go up, you baldhead!”
 So he turned around and looked at them, and pronounced a curse on them in the name of the LORD. And two female bears came out of the woods and mauled forty-two of the youths.  Then he went from there to Mount Carmel, and from there he returned to Samaria.
We have some great Youths in this Nation, who are very exceptional Leaders of tomorrow. Who would fulfill God’s mandate for their Generation. But I Cry for many Youths of this Generation who lack Respect for Great Elders and Intercessors of the Nation.
Can you imagine some Youths who are not yet Married, Singles and still searching insulting a Man who had been married for fifty two years with successful Marriage and Happy home and great Children with great international influence.
I read one of the Twits advising Papa Adeboye how to speak about his wife next time. I am amazed at this terrible Spirit of the End Time that is making many Youths of this time to stagger like drunken men
The Youths that seriously needs Prayers and Spiritual intervention for various daunting issues of their lives are bashing a Man who have prayed for Millions in many Nations. Where do you run to now, when Storms of life arise upon your Sea of life?
A Man whom God has favored massively, with branches of his church in more than 190 nations of the World, yet finding time to celebrate in the public, his wife of 52 years, yet some Youths we are trusting the Lord for future Partners and still searching here and there for their Future are angry at the Man whose PRAYERS they All NEED.
A humble Man that commands attention of nations is being corrected and advised by some Youths of the land, on how to manage his marriage, and how to speak well about his wife next time.! Some Youths are even angry at Mummy Adeboye for been too submissive to her husband. You are angry at the Woman whose all Children are successful and Flourishing? You need her Prayers! You need the kind of her Anointing that has made her successful in her husbands house.
READ HIS BIRTHDAY POST BELOW AND TWITTER REACTIONS BENEATH IT;
Today is my wife’s birthday and there are lessons that women, especially so many young brides can learn from her. She is a powerful woman, I know that.
She has many people who take instructions from her, but as powerful as she is, and even though she has seen me in my weakest moments, I have no doubt that I am her head.
It does not matter what is on her itinerary if I say I would like you to go with me to so and so place the best she can do is try to convince me otherwise.
If I insist, she would cancel whatever she was to do and come along with me. The Bible in Ephesians 5:23 says:
“For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church…”
The husband is the head of the wife. No matter how educated or successful you are, your husband is your head and you must regard him as such at all times. It is a terrible thing for a husband to feel his wife is his head.
Many men are misbehaving in their marriages simply because they want to establish that they are the head of their wives. Also, my wife is my number one fan.
She wrote in the book Mathematics of Marriage – which we coauthored, that as my helpmate she knows she cannot help me without my instructions, so when they come, her response is Yes sir.
Busy as she is, she still cooks my meals and serves me herself. Many young ladies these days leave everything to the house help. My wife still trims my nails for me.
There was a time when I was a teacher and was staying far from town. She had to cut my hair during that period. She is the only partner of the Adeboye Corporation; she doesn’t delegate her primary duties to anyone else.
Just like the virtuous woman described in Proverbs 31:1-31, I safely rest on my wife. Anything I uphold, she upholds too. Can your husband rely on you?.
Make up for your husband’s weaknesses, celebrate his successes, be his number one cheerleader. I wish my lovely wife a Happy Birthday
SEE SOME OF THE REACTIONS BELOW;
@_Toseen: “if marriage is going to be how Baba Adeboye described it, then f*ck it. I cannot can.”
@Hafizbello: “Using your wife’s birthday to air your fragile masculinity to be superior is one of the signs we’ve got the wrong role models. Just tweet “stay jiggy” next time.”
@BForL3: “I went through this thread expecting to see her achievements. Legacies this woman has built, stories of lives she has impacted! but no I saw a man talking about submission eww!
@Seun_oj: “Pastor Adeboye is not setting standard for anyone, he’s only expressing how submissive his wife has been these past few years.”
@GemmaOkpe: “It worked then because they believed that was how it should be. Things keep changing, change is constant. They did it then doesn’t mean it’s right. Mutual respect is key.”
@Jules: “I’m literally disappointed. Instead of eulogising the woman. You make it about you and how submissive she is. I literally cringed reading this.”
@Ebelee: “Do you know how ugly it is that you need to reduce someone to feel worthy. Everyday “we rise by lifting others” until it’s your wife and then you rise by reducing her and removing her head so you can replace it with your own. That Pastor Adeboye thread is horrible on many levels.”
@Lettertojack: “Pastor Adeboye is not wrong in how he thought was the best way to celebrate his wife. But we have to do better, we must unlearn celebrating women (wives) based on how much they can serve us alone, we should celebrate them on what they have accomplished too.”
@SoniaEzee: “Who trims her nail, who’s her cheerleader, she’s not deserving of that. On her freeking birthday you couldn’t give the woman a break you just made the whole thing about yourself, she basically exists through your shadow. Her purpose in life is to serve you all the days of her life.”
@FavouredSinner: “Pastor Adeboye just showed you what a real Christian marriage should look like.If you are a Christian and you are a feminist, you are in a wrong religion. What is in the Bible is the opposite of what feminism is all about, and Man is just practicing his religion.”
@Mochievious: “Pastor Adeboye should have just said “happy birthday flesh of my flesh” and keep it moving. Now we know he can’t do basic things like feed himself and trim his nails. “
@Kcnaija: “If you don’t like how Pastor Adeboye and wife live their lives and how they are a model for greater number of people, you can take after Will Smith and Jada and entangle. Stop the attack on conservative Christian values in the name of wokeness, modernism and liberalism.”
@TifeOfficial: “Normally, Women are supposed to be submissive to their Husbands, Pastor Adeboye was just stating facts and Appreciating his wife for being submissive, so it’s stupid to insult him, when he was just being right. Plus: if he was a terrible Husband, submission would have been hard for her.”
