Ex-governor’s daughter, Orode reacts after pastor said Osinachi ‘suffered and died in the Lord’
After popular social media pastor, Newton claimed that gospel singer, Sister Osinachi Nwachukwu, suffered and died in the Lord, Orode Uduaghan, the daughter of former Delta State Governor, Emmanuel Uduaghan, has reacted.
Recall that Pastor Newton said that, Osinachi might have died in the Lord after God asked her to stay in the abusive marriage.
Disagreeing with the cleric’s post, Orode said that domestic violence is not what the Bible means by long suffering.
“This is a problem, a real problem! This culture of oppression disguised as Christianity is not of God. Stop it! Stop it!,” she said.
“Her own cup of suffering was to be beaten not for Christ but from a man’s ego or whatever his excuse was. Stop it!
“So you think God is happy she died in a domestic violence situation? He mourns and weeps for her. He is heartbroken. There is no where WELL DONE reward here. Only a heartbroke father has to receive his child home before her time.”
Similarly, Nigerian preacher and marriage counsellor, Reverend Funke Felix-Adejumo, has advised people in abusive relationships to run for their lives.
While reacting to the death of Osinachi Nwachukwu, during a live session on Instagram Rev. Adejumo said;
“Woman you are not inferior to anybody. Don’t think that marriage is all that makes you. Please understand that you are important with or without marriage. Don’t die in any abusive relationship.”
She also called on those who have spiritual authority over people to stop telling them to stay in abusive relationships.
“I am not a pastor but a pastor’s wife. I’ve been a pastor’s wife for 33 years. I want to say this to those of you that are privileged to have spiritual authority over people, please stop telling them to stay in abusive relationships and be praying,” she said.
“If they were your blood relatives, would you tell them to stay there. How can you as a pastor and someone tells you that ‘my husband is beating me, my wife has brought out a knife’ and you tell the person to stay there, we will be praying for you. God can never hear that kind of prayer. That is abuse of power.
Speaking further, she said; “submission is not subjugation, submission is not slavery. The fact that you are the head of a relationship does not mean that you should kill the body in the name of religion”
