The theory of Marriage is a very contending and critical issue in the contemporary world today. Marriage is said to be a legal union between a man and a woman to become Husband and Wife. The institution was created by God when he created Eve to help Adam during the creation. A man leaving his father and mother and cleave to his wife is very much appreciated in the Bible. To avoid fornication, a man is expected to get married
Pastor W.F Kumyi, The General Superintendent of the Deeper Life Bible Church took his time to discuss the issue of marriage in one of his latest Bible Study teachings. One contending issue that the man of God emphasized is the ownership of the body. He read the book of 1st Corinthians 7 : 4 which says ” The Wife hath not power of her own body, but the husband: and likewise also the husband hath not power of his own body, but the wife. Here he explained that the wife’s body is the most important part but she does not have power over it. Her husband has the power over her body. The Husband also has no power over his body, the power over his body is given to his wife. That is the spirit of oneness. The man of God read Genesis 2 : 24, which says, “Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh. The man of God used this verse to butress his point on the issue of oneness. Two people become one and are make to make decisions for each other.
He sighted different examples
1. The Use of Handset : The man of God preached against couples denying access to eachothers phone. He said what belongs to the husband is also the wife’s and that builds up the spirit of oneness in the family. Hiding issues and matters ain’t qualities of a very good home.
2. Fasting and prayer : If there is any reason for any of the couple to pray and fast, the other other must know of the intention and the reason for such. One should not say the Christian race is quite personal and would decide not to involve the other, it should be a planned step since it is about prayers.
3. Relationship with others : The Man of God said that a Man should not relate with other woman better than how he relates with his wife wether in public or not, likewise the woman. In every situation they find themselves, they should put eachother first before any other.
4. Reconciliation : The Man of God speaks against pride as it has been a problem many couples have. If there is a misunderstanding between the couples, they should not invite a third party to solve such issues for them.
Humility should ensure that either of the husband or the wife kneels in soberness and apologize to the other. These has invariably led to many broken homes.
These and many others were issues Pastor W.F Kumuyi explained. He took time to explain the concept for marriage which was beneficial for the married and unmarried
