The Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, has stopped its members from using compulsory uniform also known as Aso Ebi at church functions.

Pastor E.A Adeboye

Pastor E.A Adeboye and wife has declared that Aso Ebi i.e uniform outfit worn during wedding ceremonies, and petty lies usually told during engagement nights, as ungodly.

His wife, Pastor Folu Adeboye, speaking at a women’s meeting on Saturday, which was a part of the activities of the 65th annual convention of the church themed “Halleluyah”, said that; compelling members of the church to participate in Aso ebi during special programmes in local assemblies is ungodly.

Continuing, she noted that some members who aren’t financially stable, would find it difficult to buy such uniforms, therefore being excluded from events/programs it is required for.

She noted that Aso ebi which should ordinarily be for the family, must not be elevated to the point of making it to overshadow the spiritual life of the congregants.

She warned that such un-Christianly act of keeping church members out of programmes because of Aso ebi, must never be heard again among the women in the church, adding that those caught would be severely sanctioned.

She stated that the concept of appearing in compulsory uniformed attire for an occasion started with the world and should not be allowed to take a firm space in the church.

She also frowned on the idea of what is seen as petty lies during Christian wedding engagement, where those conducting such events would have to engage in lies to make money from the attendees.

Pastor Adeboye explained that with God, there is no white or black lie, small or big lie, stating that when attendees are asked to bring air fare to fly in, an item already provided for at the event venue, those involved are simply engaging in ungodly act which is a sin.
