Today is one of those days when inspiration for posting flies out of the window but I have decided to give it a shot none the less.
I remember in my church going days the way the Pastor and the rest of the church would hype marriage.These folk used to make it look like if you are not married that you are missing the greatest party ever, you are incomplete and that you need to be praying.
I once recall the Pastor telling the people who are married to stand up and that the young and singletons should give them a big hand!One would have thought that mob had singlehandedly started a war on poverty and death!
Another pal of mine told me how he went to a singles ministry at NPC and how the Elder leading the meeting had called the single men forward and laid hands on them praying for God to give them utterance so they may find favour with the ladies.I mean if you are so tongue tied around women that you cant get your groove on, then indeed only God can help you!
Then we all know that ladies make up around 70% of the church or more.So when an eligible "brother" checks into the scene claws will fly.But since we are in the church that can't happen.What happens instead is that prayers fly.I once recall one girl "binding" other gals prayers' with hers so that the "brother" would be blind and deaf to all other girls apart from her.Some other girl went to extent of draping herself on a dudes car for a few minutes (in his absence of course), that was her way of claiming him for herself spiritually.
Of course the "brothers" can't be left out of this.I will lay into them and the rest of the church folk tommorow!Feel free to share your adventures!
