Dotun who stated that programs for just the single and the married is some sort of stereotype, asked why there are no church programs for the divorced to encourage them to try again. His tweet reads;
Just curious, why isn’t there a place in the church for the divorced? All you hear is single & married. Isn’t that a sort of stereotype? Why is there no church programs for the divorced to encourage or elevate their minds to try again or even re-evaluate what’s lost
This tweet is coming few months after Pastor Adebola Ogunleye of the Foursquare Gospel Church in Lagos, alleged that the rate of divorce among Christians was alarming. Delivering a sermon entitled, “Maximizing Godly Impact for the Family”, the cleric said family strife was on the rise and urged brethren to address root causes of marriage problems leading to divorce.
“Today, it is no longer news that pastors are beating up their wives and divorce has crept into the church. Divorce of convenience is what we see in the church today. It is becoming a vogue in church, which must stop,” he said.
He called on couples to constantly review their relationships and correct all the wrongs, adding that they should also seek Godly counsel from church elders where there were bigger issues they could not handle alone. He also warned against wrong counsels and advised couples to guide against external influences that could cause trouble in the home and family.
He called on the church to always organize constant inclusive programs to strengthen the family unit and reduce the rising rates of divorce.The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reported that the cleric led couples with troubled marriages to pray for peace and regeneration of their homes.
