Online media personality, Daddy Freeze has contradicted Pastor Kingsley Okonkwo and stated that divorce is scriptural and should sometimes be encouraged.
Pastor Kingsley Okonkwo had shared on his page a post about the Bible’s stance on love and marriage. Kingsley Okonkwo opined that the Bible never mentioned to marry who you love but to love who you marry.
Reacting to this, Daddy Freeze took to his Instagram page to share his opinion that the post was misleading.
According to Daddy Freeze, love is hard and people shouldn’t stick with cheating or abusive partners when the same Bible endorsed divorce.
Sharing a screenshot of pastor Kingsley Okonkwo’s Facebook post, Daddy Freeze wrote:
“This, although vague and prone to misinterpretation, makes sense and what he is saying is scriptural. It is however especially pertinent, to none that scripture is prone to rendering in individual cultural contexts. Therefore I consider it crucial to let people know that sometimes love is impossible and divorce should be encouraged, as It is perfectly scriptural to divorce if there is immorality.
This is also quite suggestive, as the emphasis of love leading to marriage is also, in my understanding, belittled. Let’s be careful with the kind of advice that we give people, because many are stuck in bad marriages.
In whatever scriptural or traditional context we pass a message, let it ring out loud and clear, that It’s not ok to take emotional or physical abuse, because you want to ‘love’ a spouse who is maltreating you. Love them and forgive them while you divorce them.”
