Is Pastor Adeboye and Bible sexist?

Share this Article

BBC just published an article titled ‘Enoch Adeboye Sexism row: Why the Nigerian pastor is popular”. Nduka Orjinmohe, author of the article gave an impression that the most popular Nigeria’s mega televangelist has a sexist attitude. The author also quoted Martha Edem, who said “Christianity and religions are the enforcers of patriarchy, so it’s not far-fetched that a religious leader would be holding on such a view”

Is Martha Edem right that Pastor Adeboye is sexist and that Christianity is an enforcer of patriarch? Many have accused the Bible to be sexist. Personally, I disagree with Martha. Although the Bible admonishes women to be submissive to their husbands, no religion has truly liberated women like the Bible.

Amy Orr-Ewing writes “ While it is true that the Bible is written over a long period of time into specific cultures and that some of these contents did not give equal social advantages to women, it would not be true to say that the message of the Bible is sexist or discriminatory against women.” Also, Jesus Christ unlike the men of his days, demonstrated only the highest regard for women, in both his life and teaching. He showed that men and women were equal, emphasizing the worth and dignity of women as persons.
