Does God Give Such Directions: Pastor To Divorce His Wife? - By Anonymous
"A 58-year-old pastor, Mr. Femi Alo, on Wednesday told a Grade A Customary Court sitting in Mushin, Lagos, that he received instructions from God to marry a new wife and divorce Felicia, his wife of 34 years with whom he had four children.

Femi said this during the hearing of a divorce suit he filed against Felicia on the grounds that she deserted him for 15 years without any reason and that Felicia did not love him anymore.

Felicia left home since 1996 under the guise of visiting her parents in Iddo-Ekiti, Ekiti State and since then she has not returned home. I have lived like a bachelor all this while and I am tired of living such a life. I sought the face of God on this and God has given me the go-ahead to divorce her and marry a new wife. He has revealed this to me, he said.

When asked by the court whom God directed him to marry, Femi said Gods will for him in marriage was a 43-year-old divorcee who is currently a student in his churchs school of evangelism.

Femi whose first two children are married, however told the court that his children were opposed to his decision to divorce their mother.

He said, Though my children are not supporting the divorce, I will go ahead with it because I want peace for myself and with God.They dont have a say over me.I brought them up and made them who they are today.

I have been patient enough for 15 years.Despite my appeal and entreaties from my relations to her to come back home she refused to return. I dont even know about her affairs over there. Besides, I cant even go against Gods will.

Felicia was however absent in court despite being served with the hearing notice. The court urged Femi to furnish it with Felicias phone number so as to establish oral communication with her with a view to ensuring her prescence at the adjourned date.

The President of the court, Dr. Gladstone Ipaye, adjourned the case till October 4 for further hearing.

if anyone is a member to the church of this pastor, please beware. God from creation has never supported divorce and HE won't either.Read Malachi 2:1416 in verse 16 God categorically say HE hates divorce. do not be deceived God is not mocked and HE is not a man that should lie for any reason, and HE is not an author of confussion. remain blessed.

@all...ya'all need to read your bible very well before you post a reply....God specifically said He hates divorce in the book of Malachi and in the book of 1 Corinthians 7 v 1011 "To the married I give this charge(not I, but the Lord). the wife should not separate from her husband (but if she does, she should remain unmarried or else be reconciled ti her husband),and the husband should not divorce his wife."
Divorce is the law of moses. it came as a result of the troubles of the isrealites. law of moses says you can drink but not get drunk.......The Gods law doesn't support divorce, drinking or any kinda petty sin.......So in a nuttshell this pastor is only playing wiv fire which proves the end time is near

If she has really deserted him for fifteen years there could have been adultery which is grounds for divorce if he needed it. Do we really know the whole picture here?
.wyclefk...
i really dont know why we are wasting our time talking about this ugly pastor who is already on his part to hell, where is the place of patience, endurance, long suffering as Jesus tought us...after how children, tell me what does he want again, sex?, children?, companion? the bible says you can only divorce your wife based on sexual imorality of which is not the csae here...that guy is in for adultary all the remaining days and the bible clearly states that NO adultrar will enter the kingdom of God...he knows it so why are we even talking about someone who wants to justify his lustful desires

For example dis pastor is divorcing his wife bcos she nags, will he now counsel a brother to bear wit a nagging wife when him d leader cannot? So where is he leading d members to? Heaven or where?
Well I can't worship in such a church cos I know what d bible says about divorce, as God's servant he should consider d number of souls looking un
to him for salvation. Let God be true n all men b liars.

Well, I read the piece as well. The bible established that divorce is only permissible under a condition of infidelity. The man however said his wife left him for fifteen years The question is, where did she go? Was she seeing someone else,why did she go? Guys, we are all humans We will do d same If God spoke wif him or not, dats left to him

God hates divorce,jesus said it a lot of times while he was preaching, if you leave ur wife,remain unmarried but if you go ahead to marry again ,you are therefore commiting adultry,which I knw is a sin.that pastor should stop blasphemy,God instructed and they oath we took is till death do us part not till divorce do us apart.

Very interesting topic and comments here. As for me and clarity of facts, christianity is all about the teachings of Jesus Christ and His apostles in the new testament and the traditions handed down. It never encourages divorce. You can not lay claim to the old testament to suit your situation and denial other old testament teachings else we better go for an eye for an eye as thought. The old testament tells us how great our God is and His wonderful workks in the lives of the Israelis.for a christian, your watch word at all times is love. Love and forgive for that is our faith. People should not proclaim strange things and call it christianity.

For me MARRIAGE is for better or worse whoever wants to go into it most be ready to stay put to it so whoever divorce his wife for another vice versa is committing adultery period.

Bible says not to get involved at all with a sinner, not get involved & leave when it suits you. The pastor won't be the first to get a divorce but he doesn't need to make it sound so biblical.
Even in the bible, divorce is not right but is merely permissible based on well stated terms. I feel his pain, if he is really been honest but he should request the divorce based on abandonment not this crazy "GOD SAID Defense" line which I guess he is using so he won't feel guilty and his immediate family won't want to counter God even if they see the errors of his ways

Let us be careful the way we interpret the bible. secondly we are all human

The bible did not say that if a woman does not do her matrimonial functions she should be divorced.
Let's be careful on the way we claim God spoke when He hasn't spoken. Remember that a blasphemy against the Holy spirit is unforgiveable.
God can not tell a pastor to divorce his wife and marry another, because He is not a God of confussion

Go and study the Book of Hosea.

The issue of divorce ended with the old testament. Am sure the pastor just wanted some backing to substantiate his desire
