Leke Adeboye, son of the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, (RCCG), Pastor E. A Adeboye, has objected to a dating site created
The City of David Parish, in Lagos yesterday launched a Christian online dating site for matured single brothers and sisters in the church.
The parish’s pastor, Idowu IIluyomade, had promised to create the website after charging single members of his church to interact and connect for the purpose of making decisions for life partners.
“This website, its content (including any information provided by registrants), and activities of connectnow is for the purpose of connecting for courtship and marriage only and is not intended to replace or serve as a substitute for any due diligence/background checks to be conducted by the registrants prior to connecting.
“Every registrant must conduct his or her own independent background check before connecting with another registrant on this platform.
“The Redeemed Christian Church of God, City of David Parish, makes no representation or warranty and expressly disclaims any and all liability concerning damages sustained by any registrant as a result of connecting with anyone on this platform,” it stated on the church’s website.
However, Leke took to his Instagram page and stated that Christians don’t need a dating app.
According to him, the old fashion way of using prayer and the holy spirit to find a spouse should be adopted.
“Seeds connecting with seeds. We don’t need a dating app! We old fashion. We use prayer and holy spirit to find each other”, he wrote.
He also shared pictures of couples who met the old-fashioned way. Leke has now edited the later part of his caption, perhaps after being admonished to.
