In an interview on Starr Chat with Nana Aba Anamoah, Rev. Stephen Wengam revealed that Jesus Christ and other great personalities in the Bible did not marry yet they never failed at their tasks, thus marriage should not be seen as an achievement.

I always advise young people not to rush into marriage and parents don’t put pressure on your kids to marry, marriage is not an achievement. Not everyone will marry anyway”, he said.

 “Once we begin to over glorify marriage, sometimes I blame pastors and leaders, the things we say during weddings put pressure on everyone to think that I must marry, the way we hail married couples, we make singles feel as if there is something wrong with them, there is nothing wrong with being single, in fact, singleness is a blessing,” he added.

“Because the Apostle Paul said that when you are married, you are entangled with family issues and so you’re not able to give God your best. So I will say that we should not let people feel that marriage is the best achievement. You can serve God as a single person, a single man, or a lady,” he continued.

The renowned preacher also chastised Christians to stop putting the blame on God for the outbreak of the deadly pandemic, urges them to adhere to all protocols adopted by the government to curb the spread of the virus.

“We can’t blame God when anything goes wrong. Those blaming God, should go back and understand the Bible, apply common sense, follow rules, live a disciplined life“, he said.

“God has created the world and He put a man in charge. God has given us the wisdom to be able to overcome any problem. It is left to us to do the right things. How many people were following the protocols?,” Rev Wengam quizzed.

He further recounted how his church communicated to its members via phone and social media and also sent reliefs to them during the lockdown in Accra.
