The General Superintendent of Deeper Christian Life Ministry, Pastor William Kumuyi, has kicked against same-sex marriage, saying it is not biblical.
While speaking at the Deeper Life International Conference Centre, KM 48 Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, on Wednesday, December 20, Kumuyi stressed that the command of Christ Jesus was for a man to get married to a woman.
“The Lord Jesus Christ told us before he left that we should go to the world, teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost; teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you. He even says heaven and earth shall pass away but his words will not pass away.
We stand in obedience to Christ and submissive to him and we carry on the works of Christ that said a man and a woman should be joined together in marriage until death do us part,” Kumuyi said
His statement comes a few days after Pope Francis granted permission to priests to bless same-sex couples in church. However, he said the union will not be recognized as marriage.
“Such blessings should not be conducted with any church rites that offer the impression of a marriage,” the pope said
