General Overseer, the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has admonished his flock against abortion. His Special Assistant on Personnel and Administration, Johson Odesola, on Adeboye’s behalf, noted that the practice is ‘ungodly and unbibilical.’ He spoke at the monthly prayer and thanksgiving service for pregnant women at the church’s national headquarters in Ebutte-Metta, Lagos. Odesola said terminating pregnancy is ‘against God’s word’ and must be avoided by Christians. He explained that though ‘the option of abortion is an option preferred by medical professionals’, Christians rather should believe in miracles, even at the woman’s life is at stake.
“There is nothing God cannot do even if the life of the woman is at stake; pray for a divine intervention and God who created the universe knows what to do in any situation we find ourselves as we look up to him in faith,” the clergyman said.
