Nigerian gospel artist and pastor Afy Douglas said he was repulsed by nose rings, waist beads, multiple ear piercings, and other adornments. He was adding that those things represent witchcraft.
In a Facebook post on Friday, July 9, Pastor Douglas said such female adornments represent rebellion, witchcraft, unnatural sexual orientation.
Pastor Afy insisted on his Facebook post that “nose rings, waist beads, multiple ear piercings, and other adornments”, represent evil and ungodly. He continues that “it is rather not complementary that Teachers of the Bible still respond to issues (big or small) with a traditional wave of the hand”.
The pastor explained that “we (Teachers of bible e.d) have become lazy from preaching and teaching from other people’s messages rather than personal study and research”.
“I am personally turned off when I see such adornments because I grew up with the notion and assumptions of what they represent: Rebellion, Witchcraft, unnatural sexual orientation… Will that stop me from taking an objective and spiritual look at it when it is raised? Will I wave it off because of a traditional, non-scripture-supported mindset even when surrounded by people who need me to make clarity because of God’s appointment on my life?”
“Why do we still shy away from conversations that have become the biggest issues in our counseling rooms and behind the scenes?”
“Why do we like mysteries like this? Why do we try so hard to repair veils that tore when Jesus made the ultimate sacrifice?”
“If you are not equipped to speak, by all means, refrain. Don’t jump into public discourse with a hard stance you cannot defend, then resort to insults, curses, and abuses when the superior argument is made. It gives you off as illiterate and limited in intellectual expression. I know spiritual is superior to intelligence. Lol.”
“It is a poor representation of Christ, His Apostles, and His body.”
“You are afraid people will become too liberal and free-willed… Abi, you are afraid people will begin to ask too many questions about everything.” “Hmmm.”
“It is too late, the ship already sailed. It is time to wake up and ask the Holy Spirit to take us deeper so we can answer and become answers to the questions of the world. It is the Truth that sets free, NOT something similar to the truth. The call on us is beyond us. Brace up.”
