Media personalities, as Daddy Freeze and Toke Makinwa has fired back at the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye, over his advice on social media to single men against marrying women who can’t cook.
Reacting to the cleric’s tweet on Monday, the On-Air Personality with CoolFm Lagos made it known onthat women are not cooks or maids.
Daddy Freeze, 42, a self acclaimed scripture teacher and convener of #FreeTheSheeple Movement who is known for taking jabs at Men of God wasted no time in responding and taking a swipe at Adeboye.
He went on to note that men shouldn’t discriminate against women who can’t cook as it shouldn’t be a priority in choosing wives while quoting scriptures from the Bible.
”So he can afford to pay his entire January salary as first fruit and 10 percent monthly as tithe, right? Just asking sir.
“A woman is more than a cook or a maidservant. These in my humble opinion, should not be the priority when choosing a wife in this decade.
“Although a woman who can cook is definitely a plus, as @tastebudzng has proven, we have to be careful not to discriminate against women who can’t.
“Did Eve know how to cook? The scriptures are silent on it. She was flesh of Adam’s flesh and bone of his bone; not his cook.
“Genesis 2:23 New Living Translation
“At last!” the man exclaimed. “This one is bone from my bone, and flesh from my flesh! She will be called ‘woman,’ because she was taken from ‘man.’”
“Martha was also too busy cooking, that she almost missed out on the blessings Mary was receiving from Christ, I believe we as Christians, should focus more on what Mary was doing, instead of making little things an issue like Martha was.
“Luke 10 ,New Living Translation
“ But Martha was distracted by the big dinner she was preparing. She came to Jesus and said, “Lord, doesn’t it seem unfair to you that my sister just sits here while I do all the work? Tell her to come and help me.”  But the Lord said to her, “My dear Martha, you are worried and upset over all these details! There is only one thing worth being concerned about. Mary has discovered it, and it will not be taken away from her.”
“A wife has a greater role to play in a mans life than being his cook, if she can fine, if she can’t it doesn’t diminish her qualities as a woman. ~FRZ”, he Tweeted.
Toke, 35, meanwhile believes cooking shouldn’t be restricted to gender, however, wants men to learn how to cook and not base the ‘entirety of picking a life partner’ on their belly.
“Cooking is not restricted to gender, guys learn how to cook so you don’t base the entirety of picking a life partner on your belly, if you don’t want to, make enough to hire a chef. Life is too short to be triggered all the time,” she tweeted.
“When Pastor Adeboye says ‘my sons’, ask ya self are you a member of his flock? Are you his spiritual child, if no, why are you so bothered??? Let him advice his own, if it’s not for you, jump and pass my friends, I promise you won’t go to hell by facing your front”, she concluded.
