Redeemed Christian Church of God Issues Directive On Pre-Marital Genitals Examination.

No automatic alt text available.

A new document being shared on social media shows that the Redeemed Christian Church of God has reportedly issued a directive making it compulsory for anyone intending to get married in the church to go through pre-marital genital tests.
The purport of this document is to put paid to the recurrence of cases of marital crises resulting from falsehood, especially in the case of undeclared or unconfessed reproductive/genital statuses by people who intend to marry.

“The Mission Authority has observed the recurrence of cases of marital crises resulting from falsehood, especially in the case of undeclared or unconfessed reproductive/genital status,”

“We have the directive of the general overseer to instruct all the Mission’s outpost that forthwith, pre-marital medication examinations for intending couples should also include genital test.

“Further, Provinces are requested to register with particular [trusted] Government Approved Hospital for the various pre-marital medical examination for intending couples” the memo reads.

Reactions to the memo

Following the post we ask people what they think about this memo and what it means for people who are about to marry, reactions have been varied, as expected.

Some, like @arabii think it is a wrong proposition.

“Are they going to test how long the man lasts? Or are they going to test if the couple is sexually compatible?

“To me, this is uncalled for… all these shenanigans by RCCG acting holier than thou must stop,” he comments.

User @oy_sugar also says that the church has no business with the wellbeing of its members’ reproductive organs. And in his very interesting opinion, it is God’s business to judge this.

“All I see is that churches these days are gradually mocking God. Somethings are better for God to handle because he is God, All a marriage need is a clear vision of God's approval.”

@Ace_supafly thinks it’s a good idea for intending couples to go for a test like this but it is not the church’s business to compel them to do so.

“It makes sense but it's not the church's duty. In this day and age, no one should enter marriage blindly and couples should be matured enough to agree to a check without a third party,” his comment reads.
