‘Clerics’ position on divorce as restitution not biblical’

‘Clerics’ position on divorce as restitution not biblical’

A Popular visually-impaired cleric and the General Overseer of Mountain of Mercy (Ori Oke Aseyori), Ojedeji 2 in Akinyele Local Government of Oyo State, Prophet Moses Muyideen Kasali, has condemned the advice by clerics that a man who has two or more wives should divorce them in the name of restitution.

Kasali, who said such was not biblical, advised clerics to stop telling members who have had two wives before becoming Christians to do restitutions by divorcing their second wife.

The prophet, who spoke during the seventh anniversary of Fasting and Prayer programme of his church at its headquarters in Ibadan, Oyo State capital, cautioned such clerics against causing crises in the homes of new converts and frustrating children, who are products of such marriages.

The cleric, who presented a N4.5million Toyota Corolla car gift to a visually-impaired man, who is a musician, Atanda Akorede,  said: “Where do you want a woman who already has children as a second wife with a man to go if her husband divorces her in the name of restitution? Who will marry her?

“I don’t know of any kind of restitution that someone who has already married two women will do. What they are talking about is Paul’s restitution not God’s. Many of what Paul said in the Bible are mere pieces of advice not commandments and this is by way of his training and profession as a lawyer.”

He enjoined women who became vengeful because of insinuation that their husbands were planning to marry another woman to rather apply tact and be prayerful, to put the situation under control.

Kasali said: “Rather than being foolish, it is the time you hear that such a thing has started happening that you are supposed to start using tactics to bring him home. It is not a matter of fighting so you don’t lose him totally.

“The Bible says in the last days seven women will go after a man, just to bear his surname, not to get his money. Jesus didn’t say he has come to oppose what the prophets have said, but to support them.”

The prophet disagreed with insinuations in some quarters, even in Christendom that it is only Christians who can rule Nigeria better, saying: “God owns Nigeria. Religion doesn’t own Nigeria.

God is the God of everybody. He can use anyone He pleases to rule us. What matters is that the one He chooses makes life better for us. What is the use of a Christian leader who lacks direction?”

He warned fake prophets spreading false prophecies to desist, to escape God’s wrath, saying: “We should find out what God’s purpose is for us and stop imitating other people.”

Kasali admonished clerics who might have fallen into terrible or sexual sins not to give up, but to repent and seek God’s forgiveness, just as he advised men and women to desist from allowing themselves to be used to destroy clergymen.

“You have to resist sexual sins, even from the pastor.

“We men of God face temptations. There are voices we hear which make us want to commit sins. These things happen to make us realise that we are just ordinary flesh like others not called like us. I don’t hug women, I instruct them to greet me in the traditional way of kneeling down,” he said.
