The General Overseer of The Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor E. A Adeboye, has revealed God’s position on transgenders.
The clergyman in a post shared on his Facebook page, explained that any attempt to change one’s original gender is an insult to God.
Quoting a portion of the Holy Bible [Genesis 1:27] – “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them,” Adeboye said anyone diverting from this original plan of God is simply saying the creator does not know what he was doing.
The 79-year-old preacher stressed further that God was intentional when he commanded his creations to be both male and female.
Adeboye charged Christians to look back where they have erred and amend their ways. He expressed concerns on how people chase after material things and end up ‘shortening’ their life span.
The RCCG founder said when God created the day for work, he also created the night for a rest.
According to him, “If for any reason we do not rest in one night, the following day should compensate for the loss of rest.
“Failure to observe rest produces stress, sickness and ultimately death. Little wonder life expectancy in the last fifty years has been on the decline.”
Adeboye noted that achievements that should normally have taken forty years to be accomplished by a person are now realised in fewer than thirty.
