Why Deeper Life Church suspended Kumuyi’s Son over wife’s flamboyant wedding gown

July 4, 2013

Despite the apology sent to the church following the controversy generated by the wedding gown of the bride of the second son of its General-Superintendent, Pastor William Kumuyi, the Deeper Christian Life Ministry has formally suspended John Kumuyi and his new wife, Love Kumuyi

According to a statement from the church, the couple had to be suspended for flouting the church’s rules by using make-up and other flashy ensemble that accompanied a fitted wedding gown. The gown also had see-through sleeves. His bride, Love Odih, was accused of flouting the established doctrine of the church on conservative dressing.

Earlier, the new couple, who got married on June 15, 2013, had apologised, but unfortunately, the apology did not stem the tide of criticisms by numerous members of the church as well as the general public.

Their apology was read on Saturday by Pastor Akpofure, during the church’s monthly miracle and revival programme, held at Deeper Life Conference Centre, Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.

It read in part,  “We unreservedly and wholeheartedly state that we did not intend that our acts or omissions will, in any way, undermine the great works that God has done through the Deeper Christian Life Ministry worldwide and  more especially, through our Father in the Lord, the General Superintendent.

“We also use this medium to profusely and sincerely apologise to the General Superintendent for the embarrassment and heartaches our actions have caused him, more so that he had earlier declined to be at the events.”

Pastor Philip Olowu, during the programme, said the church overseer had expressed his displeasure with the “standard” of the wedding.

Olowu said after a thorough assessment of the wedding, the church had decided “to place John and his wife on discipline.”

    To err is human to forgive is divine. I wonder what some church authorities would ve done if they find themselves in the position of God. Change is inevitable, only God is constant. They ve not seen anything, in less than five years time, a lot of their youths in Deeper Life will transform and will not blink an eye not to talk of apologize like this couple did.
