Pastors at the Redeemed Christian Church of God have been instructed to carry out a thorough “medical examination for intending couples.”
RCCG, a Ministry headed by Pastor Enoch Adeboye, already carries out a series of health test on members wishing to marry at it church.
J. F. Odeola, an assistant General Overseer who sent a memo on May 10, 2018 to pastors, is asking that a “genital test” be conducted by “a trusted hospital.”
In the memo, Mr Odeola explained that: “We have the directive of the General Overseer to instruct the entire Mission’s outpost that forthwith, pre-marital medical examination for intending couples should also include genital test.”
He believes it will reduce the “recurrence of cases of marital crises resulting from falsehood, especially in the case of undeclared or unconfessed reproductive/genital status.”
“Further, Provinces are requested to register with particular (trusted) government approved hospital for the various pre-marital examinations for intending couples.
“Remain blessed in this season of songs and victory in Jesus’ name, amen.”
