“The major problem is that some pastors refused to obey what the Bible says. We are expected to seek the kingdom first and then all other things shall be added unto them. But today, some of us seek all other things first before the kingdom of God.â€
Pastor Tunde Bakare of the Latter Rain Assembly, Lagos, has condemned the fast growing practice of some pastors, especially in Nigeria, making their wives automatic pastors, for selfish reasons.
Reacting to the ‘wrong’ trend recent, the popular preacher said:
â€œOn the issue of pastors making their wives automatic pastors, [it] is wrong. In fact, I observed that such things are common in our churches today. Even when a pastorâ€™s wife is called, she has to go through the right process, the Bible College in order to acquire the necessary knowledge to operate successfully.
“Bible colleges are not there for fun, it is to train servants of God. There is no shortcut or sentiment. There are other things the pastorsâ€™ wives, who are not called, can do to help the church grow, not serve as pastors.”
