That is not the way to handle it.

You see why most people dont say good about christianity. This bishop if you never sin, oya raise your hands

Abeg nah his church and churches 've rules and regulations. Did she convert d guy to a Christian or is she going to be a Muslim. If the later, then she should not only leave the choir but the church. You can't serve two masters at once.

People trying to have their cake and eat it. She is supposed to leave the church jeje for dem. Is going to practise mixed religion in the marriage or is she becoming a Muslim? If she is becoming a Muslim, den she should leave both the choir and the church and face her Koran and mosque.

I wonder if the man she got married to later happens to be a governor and she a Christian First Lady married to a Muslim man likes of Florence Ajimobi, Oluremi Tinubu, Funso Amosu, Toyin Saraki, Omolewa Ahmed, Abimbola Fasola etc, won't that Church still call her back with letter of apology? Religion is indeed opium of the masses

Same thing will happen in most cases when a Muslim girl marry a christian brother... Her family and religion will kick against it, unless her husband is converted.

To me,I don't see any thing in what he did...the bible said we shouldn't be unequally yoked with an unbeliever...unbeliever is someone who doesn't share same faith with you.... Its been happening in churches right from time immemorial. His church is at stake if he doesn't do that.... If na you nko?

I actually see nothing wrong in it. You can't worship God and Mammon.
If she married the Muslim guy before becoming born again, it's a different case.
As a chorister she is suppose to be a light to others and not otherwise. Anyone saying otherwise, because you think we live in the twentieth century and everyone should follow the trend, the Word of God is our trend and standard.
Muslims will never allow their ladies marry Christians. The men are allowed because there's the conception that ladies can be influenced easily so they make it a point of duty to change the minds of their wives to turn to muslims. Which happens in most cases.
This is small punishment compared to what the lady would have faced if reverse was the case.

I won't say what the Bishop did is wrong or not, why, because his reasons are best known to him.

But then it is sacrosanct for us humans to first Love one another regardless of religion, for if we love and respect one another only then will we as humans be able to coexist in peace and harmony.

The Muslims will do the same to their daughters if they marry someone that is not a Muslim.

Love.Eating.Pussy said...

I don't see anything wrong in what this bishop did, the bible is clear on certain things

2 corinthians 6:14-16
(Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership has righteousness with lawlessness? Or what fellowship has light with darkness? What accord has Christ with Belial? Or what portion does a believer share with an unbeliever? What agreement has the temple of God with idols? For we are the temple of the living God; as God said, “I will make my dwelling among them and walk among them, and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Therefore go out from their midst, and be separate from them, says the Lord, and touch no unclean thing; then I will welcome you,)

Deuteronomy 7 vs 3-4
(You shall not intermarry with them, giving your daughters to their sons or taking their daughters for your sons, for they would turn away your sons from following me, to serve other gods. Then the anger of the Lord would be kindled against you, and he would destroy you quickly.)

As a Christian your body is the temple of Christ and when you knowingly decide out of the foolish wisdom of the world to share your body in marriage with that of a man who worships god of the sun, what then do you expect.

That the bishop will fold his arms and allow you bring filth to the alter of God because as a chorister of the church you are a vessel unto praise and when you have shared you body with a man who serves a lesser god then you have commited abomination.

God cannot be mocked and his standard is sure.

As a chorister with your lips you sing praises to God because you claim to have felt the power of his salvation yet you decide to marry a Muslim of all people and expect the church you condone it.

Why couldnt the lady trust in God to do right by her

You must be crazy...if you have lost it thank God your bishop is still in his right senses to remove such abominable people from his church

Kristine Obilor aka anonymous 14:45 &anonymous 14:46, why are you deleting d comment. We done see am finish. WWuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu

Idomajuju said...

You see nothing wrong with this? Even the bible says light and darkness don't meet. Believers shouldn't be yoked with an unbeliever. A Muslim family will never I repeat never allow their daughter marry a Christian so why should a Christian lady marry a Muslim? Your beliefs are different, your customs and norms are different and what about the kids you decide to bring into this world. What shall be their doctrine? Who shall they follow? Mosque on Friday and church on Sunday? Why confuse the kids. Now they are in love, after 6month-1year of marriage they go give am kettle and mat.���������� when a lady is desperate to get married every man is a potential husband material in 100yards. The Bishop did nothing wrong and trust me he is vexed cos the lady has shown that all her years in that church, the bishop hasn't impacted in life spiritually. Sermon preached after each service is forgotten shekina.... goes through the right and out through the left....

Thank you, this is the best way, you cant serve two masters

kikki said...

You can't be fucking an unbeliver at night, then go to church in the morning to minister in songs to God's people. Let her face her husband in peace and leave God's work to true belivers. A true born again Christian will never marry an unbeliver.

STARRY LARRY said...

Don't say what you don't know, I have more female cousins married to a Christan. I even have an older uncle converted by his wife.

So she wants to continue as a church chorister while married to a muslim??

Bubble gum said...

Abi oH @Bee10 people are so quick to attack Christians.

Praise Alakpa said...

As for me I don't buy the idea of suspending her from choir. The bishop would have called and talked to the Lady in concern.

Ralu M said...

Stella you say what? A chorister meaning she's a church worker who stands in front of the alter to sing and lead praise and worship. Mba, the church should have picked out asoebi for her, taken 2 20seater bus to the wedding and do branded gifts for her 😩 then host she and the brand new husband next Sunday for thanksgiving. That I'm sure is in every church rule...you marry a Muslim as a church worker then you get sanctioned. There's nothing bad about it

Ralu M said...

Call her back with letter of apology as per what exactly?
She should be applauded for walking and working against the word of God?
Truly not all who profess Jesus can testify they know Him as who and what He is.
I can't say for those women you mentioned except Mrs Omolewa Ahmed because I've been blessed to hear her preach. She testified that she married her husband after she backslided (mind you not as a church worker) and during the marriage found her way back to Jesus. She regrets the fact that she married a Muslim and keeps praying that one day her husband will know Christ ...you think it's child's play for a real child of God in a Muslim marriage?

Anonymous said...

Dem plenty ooo.

Chuks Bruno said...

The Muslim will do worse inasmuch I don't think the best thing was to ask her to leave, I think counselling should have been the next thing

Anonymous said...

Muslims do so too? Me I never hear that one before o! All the one I done see na Christian say NO! 2 of my close relations got married to Muslims and everybody minds his or her own faith.

Madam Estateowner said...

Of course. It shows all the biblical teaching she has been receiving did not digest into her brain properly. Not only the choir also the church. Let call a spade a spade> she's not worthy to minister in that place .

Chuks Bruno said...

Seriously? Backward because a bishop did what he thought was best for the faith of his other members? There's nothing to accept here biko

Chuks Bruno said...

I totally agree with you @Minnie

Love.Eating.Pussy said...

You have said the truth...a true born again Christian can never marry an unbeliever, the lady is not a true follower of Christ simple.

Anon Muslim do worst. I grew up in the north so I know. In fact, they are shunned. It's allowed for a Muslim man to marry a Christian girl but a Muslim girl isn't allowed to marry a Muslim. Check the occurrence and see. It's very rare. Because they know they can make the girl to convert or not allow her go to church at all. But if a girl married a Muslim, it's hardly the consent of the family. She will be shunned until she returns. Cases where the family consented is very rare

Just Bella. said...

But it's is her choice naw ... There are some good Muslim even better than the so called Christian brothers ... Please everybody should learn how to mind their business.

Chike TEFLON said...

Thank you. Muslim will even do worst.


But I don't support telling others to attend the wedding.

Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness? 2 Cor. 2:14

Suspending her from her "duties" in the assembly was right and scriptural.
As a matter of fact, she can't even sing again since she will be a Muslim
and one among a lot of wives.
This is what girls that rush to marry a Muslim do not consider.
No matter how he "promises to be one man one wife", he is going to renege
He is a human and bound to budge to pressure
so do not enter that boat if you can't sail to destination, you will only be
thrown overboard to feed the sharks and wales.

You are very wrong. Who made the Bishop the Judge? What a shame!

Anonymous said...

It is really funny when a bishop suspends a member that still want to worship God using her talent, then sends some group of people out with tracts to share the gospel and tell them about God. Religion is really getting their hands into marriages today, it is just heartbreaking and unbelievable. As a Christian I was taught that this heavenly race is personal but at the same time our personal decisions about it is countered by the same people.

Firstlady blessing said...

When it comes to issues like this Muslims do worst but this is not d right way to handle it,if decides to remain in d church they should let her be

Utuocha said...

Fashola's wife is a practising Catholic even though her husband is Muslim. Who knows she may lead her husband to God.

Cynthia Iyede said...

I schooled in the north and I'm familiar with some of their rules. Most muslims will do worse I tell you. Only few of them in the west won't mind though.

kikki said...

Her talent is useless to God if she doesn't obey his word. A true Christian should never marry outside the Faith. Read the word people!

Cynthia Iyede said...

The Bishop wasn't wrong at all and I believe he took this decision so that others will learn and not do same.

lizyyaminu said...

Bless God fr d comment and commenters fr most knws d truth d bishop is ryt

charity said...

Very apt @ kikki. Her talent is useless if she doesn't obey God.

OGABOSS said...

The girl 'sinned' against God and its not in the so called bishops play to suspend her from the church and worst of all threatens other members from attending the wedding!! I think its silly how some of us glorify daddy GO above d scripture and logic and common sense,

Tuesday's Child said...

And you are sure that was not done before the decision to suspend?

Anonymous said...

Seriously Idomajuju, you just called another human being created by the same God you claim to serve darkness? Smh I am a Christian and I have Muslim friends and some of them are better than my so called Christian friends. We should learn to accommodate other religious.

What business is it of mine to judge those outside the church? Are you not to judge those inside? 1 Cor. 5:12
