The head pastor of the popular Eglise Primitive du Seigneur, Yeshua Hamashia Church, has reportedly tied the knot with four women on the same day over the weekend.
The famous pastor, who is identified as, Prophet Zagabe Chiluza from the eastern Congo, Bukur got married to four women at the same time in his church
A popular YouTube channel, Afrimax that specialized in sharing different unusual happenings across the world has reported the details about the wedding.
However, this is his second marriage, as he reportedly married the first wife a few years ago.
The man of God, while defending his action, claimed that he adopted the idea of polygamy from the Bible, citing Jacob, who had four wives, as an example.
He quoted biblical scriptures that show that marrying more than one wife was not a sin, and God always respected those who married more than one wife.
In his words:
“Show me where it is written that God said a man should marry only one wife? ”
“I am brother Zagabe Chiluza, and I have one wife plus the four I am about to marry. They would have to join the senior wife. Today we will have to celebrate. I will marry more women, and the idea originated from the bible.”
The acclaimed servant of God said he got saved and believed Jesus as his saviour in 1986 while he was in school.
Mr Chiluza, who says he is an ardent Bible student, chose to deviate from other denominations on the idea of polygamy.
“Jacob married one wife and was awarded another, didn’t he? After that, he married more wives. Jacob had many wives, Leah and Rachel, then Bilhah and Zilpa, four wives for one man,” he added.
Chiluza further stated that there are a lot of biblical examples of polygamy like “Saul, David and others, didn’t God not interact with them? I am wondering, how can one refuse to marry more than one wife?” he asked.
Another pastor in the church, Brother Kalebbe, said God introduced polygamy in the old testament and the entire scriptures support it.
Giving scriptural backup to his claims, he said:
“You can read Matthew 25:1, it reads that, ‘at that time the Kingdom of God would be like ten virgins, who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom’, and we understand that all the brides would be his wives.”
Meanwhile, HotNewsInNaija had earlier reported the assertion of a Nigerian lawyer, and activist, Reno Omokri who claimed that polygamy is not a sin and released some Bible verses to back his point up.
He added that even God gave David many wives, and explained that marrying more than one wife is not forbidden in the Bible as it was written in the book of 2 Samuel 12:8.
