RCCG Bans Aso Ebi
The leadership of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), has banned the use of compulsory uniforms also known as Aso Ebi worn at church functions.
According to Tribune, wife of the General Overseer of the church, Pastor Foluke Adeboye, disclosed this yesterday, when she spoke at the church’s women’s meeting, which was part of the activities of its 65th annual convention of the church themed “Halleluyah”.
Pastor Mrs Adeboye described it as an ungodly acts by some church leaders to compel their members to buy and wear a particular uniform (Aso ebi) during any church function.
She said that there have been reports that members of some parishes in the church who cannot afford to buy the Aso Ebi have been excluded from some church functions.
She warned that such un-Christianly act of keeping church members out of programmes because of Aso ebi, must never be heard of again among the women in the church, adding that those caught would be severely sanctioned.
Mrs Adeboye also spoke against petty lies during Christian wedding engagement.
She said asking attendees to bring air fare to fly in an item already provided for at the event venue is an ungodly act and a sin. She said there is no white or black lie, small or big lie with God.
She called for moderation among Christian women, saying that their focus should be bringing halleluyah and spirituality into their homes and not engaging in the ungodly acts of the unbelievers.
