The founder of the International Central Gospel Church (ICGC), Pastor Mensa Otabil has dropped some good news for single men and women.
The renowned man of God answering questions on ‘singleness and premarital issues’ in a televised interaction with some members of his church noted that singleness is not a curse.
Pastor Mensa Otabil took his time to explain that singleness is a life like any other that can be lived purposefully.
He stated that Jesus Christ and the Apostle Paul set a good example of how singleness can be lived purposefully.
“There are people who choose to be single and there are others who find themselves being single.
“Most single people would probably at a point be hoping to get married.
“Because marriage was the focus if they don’t get married it would seem like a disappointment but if they had chosen not to marry then there will be no disappointment then.”
“So, I think it is just the fact that people hope to get married and don’t get married, it makes them feel like they have been unfulfilled or a dream has not been met and expectation has not been fulfilled.
“But singleness by itself is not a curse by any means. It is life like any other life and can be lived purposefully.”
