Pastor Adeboye, who spoke at the New Year thanksgiving organised by the Joint Christian Mission of the Obafemi Awolowo University, OAU, Ile-Ife, condemned the act, which as been legitimized in some countries of the world, adding that such should not be introduced in Nigeria.
He described same sex marriage as anti-God and ungodly.
In his words: “People should walk in the light of God and forsake acts that are traceable to darkness. Darkness is bad, it is evil. It produces poverty, hatred, sorrow, barenness and loneliness, but light produces love, peace, joy, promotion and faithfulness.
“Darkness is capable of wrecking havoc in the country, and Nigerian leaders should try to shun acts of darkness in 2013 for the nation to enjoy peace.”
He insisted that the will of God for human being is to be fruitful, replenish and multiply on earth, adding that anything contrary to that is devilish. He maintained that same sex marriage was capable of wiping out human race within just 20 years of its practice.
Adeboye said anything contrary to man and woman marriage was devilish. He said: “Same sex marriage is anathema to God’s will and instruction.
The will of God for human being is to be fruitful, replenish and multiply on earth and anything contrary to that is devilish.”
“How can a man who marries a fellow man produce a child and how can a woman who marries a woman produce a child? “If this evil is allowed to stay, there will not be new born babies again in the world.
As the older generation dies, would there be new generation to succeed? Even plants and animals have new generation to succeed them.”
Adeboye therefore called on those who indulge in the sacrilegious act to repent and turn to God, stressing that “like poles repel, while unlike poles attract.”
