The church stands for holiness - Deeper Life Church reacts after suspending couple’s wedding for allegedly eating from same plate

- Legit.ng earlier reported that a Deeper Life Church in Bayelsa suspended a couple’s wedding because they ate from the same plate before their marriage


- The report raised a number of criticisms from social media users and the church has now released a statement reacting to the case

- According to the church, it stands for holiness and the couple were in haste to enjoy the benefits of married couples

A Nigerian couple-to-be Bolingo Israel and Okpokpolom Jemima, who are members of the Deeper Life Church, had their wedding which was slated to hold on June 8, 2019, suspended by their pastor.

It was earlier reported that the wedding was allegedly suspended because the couple ate from the same plate a week before tying the knot.

Well, the Deeper Life Church has reacted to the reports. In a statement sent to Legit.ng, the church explained that contrary to reports, the couple had actually engaged in moral acts after sleeping in the same bed and it amounted to sin.

The church further explained that after feeling guilty and reporting themselves to their respective pastors, the couple was placed on disciplinary action by the state overseer.

After the church felt they had repented, the wedding was slated to hold again but was eventually suspended the second time after they discovered the couple had engaged in 'acts contrary to the laid down procedure by the marriage committee of the church'.

Concluding the statement, the church explained that it stands for holiness and members have been admonished to abstain from evil.

The couple was also described to have behaved unseemingly and were in a haste to enjoy the benefits of married couples.

Read the statement below:

"The church has a Marriage Committee that supervises marriage right from knowing the will of God, to obtaining parents’ consent, marriage registration to church wedding.

When the intending couples were told to go to Brass Region in Bayelsa state to obtain the man’s parents’ consent, they spent several days together before coming back to Yenagoa. They slept on the same bed and engaged in moral acts which amounted to sin and against the marriage process of the Church. They felt what they had done was bad and reported themselves to their pastors.

They were subsequently placed on discipline by the State Overseer. After some period, reporting that they have repented, the courtship was allowed to commence again.

As preparation for wedding was going on, it was discovered that they again engaged in acts contrary to the laid down procedure by the marriage committee of the church. This is after they had been disciplined earlier and warned not to engage in acts that will impact negatively on their proposed marriage.

When the Marriage Committee put a direct question to them based on the latest development, the man accepted their error. It is important to note here, that the church stands on holiness and members have been consistently admonished to “abstain from all appearance of evil. It is not also true that the parents pleaded with the pastor to wed them on the 8th June, 2019.

The summary is that they behaved themselves unseemingly, and were in haste to enjoy the benefits the church and God allow only married couples to enjoy."

Just recently, Legit.ng reported that the Deeper Life general overseer, Pastor Kumuyi, has warned Christians against attacking President Buhari.

According to News Agency of Nigeria, Kumuyi, during his sermon at the Deeper Life Bible Church, Headquarters, Gbagada, Lagos, urged Christians not to attack the president of the country through any means.

If they truly got involved in any immorality, then the suspension of their wedding is very good. Worldliness shouldn't be tolerated in the church.

BTW what does Kumuyi's statement about Buhari has to do with this issue?

shocked

Well,according to church doctrine, suspension based on premarital sex is in order...

But wait o,why on earth will they commit the second 'impure' act after having been punished the first time. They could simply shift the marriage date forward to ease the 'loins-accumulating-fokosobolistic-pressure'
(LAFP)

LAFP happens to the best of men(n women). Why,just today,at the bank,naso junior wan disgrace me when the beautiful teller attendant gave me a bright smile,winked and waltz away giving me a panoramic view of her huge ass.

Smh... This is about morality and not salvation. They confessed to their mistakes and I guess they knew the repercussions from the church. They shld bear d consequences
I say again, this is about morality and not salvation. I bliv thr r some members who covered their poo very well and they got wedded. Does that make them righteous??

I would have given you guys a very funny and interesting news yesterday if not that it all happened in a flash and I didn't record the action until it was over.
The wedding was great, a normal deeper life wedding. The wife was not allowed to use any form of make up. Not even powder. (sadly, she's my cousin)
Everything went smooth at the church until we got to reception.
The family already hired professional musicians to sing at the reception but the church asked them not to play and the church choirs started singing praise for the wife to dance in. She refused to come in and started crying. I was sorry for her I swear.
Then after much pressure and time wasting, she walked in without dancing, leaving her husband behind.
Everyone was in shock and started asking each other why she didn't dance in. Lol
But how will she dance to those kind of deeper life old school praise songs for christ sake?
This is not to criticize the church or anything cuz I'm a member of deeper life too but I think this marriage doctrines are too strict.
We've lost all the youths in the church because of it and still they are not getting it.
