The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) initially offered this advice in April 2017. Then, he said, “any marriage that is concocted through the Facebook is going to crash through the Youtube. No doubt about that.”
This time, he says, “If you marry on facebook, you cannot tell what will come.”
Pastor Adeboye also encouraged singles to always look into the backgrounds of their would-be partners.
Vanguard reports that he made these statements at the April 2018 Holy Ghost Service and Vigil of the Church at its prayer ground in Mowe, Ogun, on Kilometre 45 of Lagos — Ibadan Expressway.

Dapchi girls, particularly the Christian who is still in Boko Haram captivity, were not left out of the sermon.
Speaking to the congregation, the RCCG G.O thanked God for the release of the 105 students of the Federal Government Technical College, Dapchi, Yobe state.

Pastor Adeboye on families
The Man of God also talked about families, the dynamics between children and their parents.
Referring to Ezekiel 16: 44, and John 8: 44, he talked about the sins and blessings of the father affecting the children.
In his words, “If the parents are of the Lord the Lord will continue to bless them and their children will not beg for food.”
During the course of the service, Pastor Adeboye also offered special prayers for people with illnesses, problems, and barren women.
The monthly programme was attended by Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo, his wife, Dolapo, and many others.
