Pastor Mrs Blessing Agboli, the wife of Rev. (Dr) Joseph Agboli the general overseer of the Victorious Army International Ministries in Lagos, has spoken out against domestic violence and maltreatment of women in their matrimonial home.
The pastor popularly called Mama Blessing said that Christian women should leave their matrimonial homes and move in with their parents temporarily if they are being beaten by their husbands.
As a Christian woman, if you’re constantly being hit by your husband, separate temporarily, not divorce!
Move in with your parents, or parents-in-law.
Pray from there while also seeking the needed intervention required from authorities whom you consider ideal enough to broker reconciliation and address the issues decisively without bias, prejudice.
However, in receiving directives from these authorities, whoever they be, and discretion must be applied.
So many Christian women have lost their lives to this uninformed sense of submission.
These women suffer and endure extreme cases of abuse, and in some instances, death, just because they try to regard or respect the authority of their parents or spiritual heads.
To such women, ONLY YOU KNOW AND UNDERSTAND THE PAIN that you are in!
Therefore we must be rational in our reasoning!
An abusive marriage turns you into a different person.
Abuse on women must be preached against and addressed in churches!
Do not stay because of your children and lose your life!
Children are attracted to the kind of marriage they see.
Remember that only the alive, sane, and well, can tend to children; be wise!
