    As long as d gospel of our Lord is concerned, they did nothing rong to deserve any form of suspension.. We r saved by d mercies of God n not by church doctrines like u stated above. Dear writter, Find another gist

  6. John says:

    This write up lack credibility, how can u compare this issue with the sons of samuel, just because u knw a story in the bible doesn’t mean u understand its teaching….even Jesus didn’t teach us to be like this the bible has check and balances the bible teaches us not to be extreme,

  7. Anderson says:

    And if you had only known what this saying means, I desire mercy [readiness to help, to spare, to forgive] rather than sacrifice and sacrificial victims, you would not have condemned the guiltless. Matthew 12:7

  8. Peterson says:

    Writer, you’ve tried, though you’re not a Deeper Lifer according to you. But my own wedding will equally look as nice as that of John and Love. So leave the young couple alone.

  9. Oge says:

    Veteran journalist indeed! This article makes little/no sense. Meanwhile, Okonso the judge and arbiter of the born again. I guess in ur opinion, d born again must live d Deeper life way.

    The writer in closing remark called the incident a tragedy. How is it a tragedy?

    Funny story. Can d wedding be undone? Does the furore about their improper dressing mean God does not approve of the union? Is it the first time Mrs Kumuyi Jnr wuld use a light make up? Pastor Kumuyi is a great Man of God no doubt but God is infinite, cannot be caged by doctrines of men. Its high time Deeper Life consider the fact that Moderation is it NOT a stereotyped way of dressing. Congrats to the couple.

    In a church, i still believe we mind the same thing just as the scriptures says. The couple did not mind these rules which they knew. However, there is a committee that looks into every details as it relates to wedding in the Deeper Life Bible Church. The question is, what role did the committee play in all that happened before and during the wedding which they are known for. Could it be an oversight because it is the superintendent son’s wedding?, is this also true about the National overseer’s daughter? I know of some wedding that was cancelled just because the groom has TV-SET in his house. Is the standard different now, if yes then the church will have to apologizes to all who are affected. No doubt the church has good standard which they have kept for decades now and that is what i believe they want to keep at all cost be it Junior Kumuyi or not.

    May the lord Jesus open our eyes to see and ears to hear from above.

  14. Pastor Idowu David says:

    The citation of Eli’s sons was accurate, the whole report is welcomed.

  15. Seyi says:

    Pastor Kumuyi will never compromise his stance on holiness irrespective of who is involved. While I’m not holding brief for the Church, I pretty sure that the wedding gown in question would not be the one that was approved by the Church’s marriage committee. If that is the case, then a case of perjury could be established against the couple. Pastor Kumuyi will never take kindly to this because of its spiritual implication.

  16. Miari says:

    Poor quality journalism. The story is badly written with unverified information. Veteran???

  17. Suddy says:

    The only thing I didn’t like in d wedding is the see through top of the gown n d make up since its against d chrch standard as has been read in the bible.. Besides, the wedding wasn’t conducted by Deeper Life Church, but by The Clergy President in Jamaica who’s licensed to wed couples. However, I commend Pastor Kumuyi who took his actions but was still present at his son’s wedding. His son isn’t the father. I can’t judge Dr Kumuyi for his son’s fault or that of his daughter in law. I respect Pst Kumuyi, Pst Adeboye and Pst Oyedepo as I see them as God’s top generals in Nigeria.

    Good one here. Earnestly contending for the faith once delivered onto the saints.
