Toolz Oniru, a media personality, has shared her thoughts on Faith Oyedepo’s testimony, the wife of David Oyedepo, the founder of Living Faith Church Worldwide.
WITHIN NIGERIA recalls Oyedepo telling a story about an incident that occurred during her pregnancy with her first son in order to encourage her congregants to have faith in the Lord.
She explained that she was bleeding and that when her husband returned home, she told him about it, concerned that she was having a miscarriage.
She claimed, however, that her husband told her flatly that she couldn’t have a miscarriage and then asked for his meal.
You can’t have a miscarriage” before asking to be served his meal.
I remember when I was pregnant with our first son, one day I saw blood flowing from me.
When my husband returned home, I told him that I had a miscarriage. Boldly, and without any hesitation, he said, “You can’t have a miscarriage!”, and then asked to be served his meal.
Faith stated that her husband’s words “activated the spirit of faith and the pregnancy was sustained.”
Her testimony, however, was met with mixed reactions.
Jumping in, Toolz said on Tuesday that a pregnant woman who is bleeding from a possible miscarriage should be taken to the hospital rather than being asked to prepare a meal.
Pls don’t do this. If you’re bleeding from a possible miscarriage…go to hospital.
Last thing you should be doing is making food for anyone.
I’m so annoyed! Nigeria has one of the worst maternal mortality rates in the world, and someone is here saying ignore bleeding during pregnancy and enter kitchen.
