Revered preacher, Pastor W.F. Kumuyi of the Deeper Live Bible Church has kicked against female choristers of the church who wore jackets to minister. The choristers reportedly ministered at the church’s Redeemed to Serve crusade held in Bayelsa state.
Women not to put on male apparels According to the man of God, it is against the Bible for the female gender to put on dresses belonging to men such as he saw at the crusade.
He said jackets and trousers were for men and as such should not be worn by women. But the popular man of God said nothing new because that has been a long time doctrine of the Deeper Life Ministry. According to him: “By the way choir! If you are Deeper Life Choir, when you come to sing at a crusade, don’t bring that worldly dancing, you know into the crusade where Deeper Life is organising. And then don’t bring all that kind of dress that I saw last night. A woman cannot put on that which belongs to a man. When you wear a jacket like I’m wearing now, that belongs to a man. When you wear your trousers, whatever make, that belongs to a man.”
The man of God told the congregation that such dressings as he saw with the choristers should not be copied as the norm by others in the church.
