Nigerian pastor Williams Folorunsho Kumuyi has generated a controversy after he made several series of statements during a Sunday Service held on March 31, 2019. In his own words, the pastor condemned the wearing of men's wears by women just as he denounced the use of earrings and other such accessories.
William Kumuyi, who is the general superintendent of Deeper Christian Life Ministry, on Sunday said that what the world sees as beauty is abomination unto God. The pastor was preaching on the topic: “The Inner and Outward Beauty of Kingdom Citizens.”
In the course of preaching, he gave his own definition of beauty in the spiritual sense. Then, he went on to emphasize that what the world might see as beauty is not exactly what God sees as beauty.
Even more, the pastor highlighted those fashion styles and accessories that were abominable in this sense. According to him, permed hair, earrings, men's wears and immodest attires were not right for women.
Quoting from the Bible, he particularly warned that men should not put on women’s wear neither should women put on men’s wears. He said God's standard would never change even if the world would change.
According to him, some Christians feel inferior because they are not copying the standard of the world. He challenged such people to keep on obeying God’s word rather than feed the pleasures of the flesh.
Kumuyi emphasized that the outward beauty that the world seems to appreciate might be ugly, terrible and an abomination to God as inner beauty can only be gotten through genuine salvation in Christ.
In the YouTube video in which this message was embedded, the 77-year-old pastor made this particular statement at the time period of 2:11:30-34. Read his words below:
"Beauty implies loveliness, beauty brings in comeliness. Beauty means attractiveness.. handsomeness... gracefulness... And there is spiritual as well as natural beauty. God sees beauty, well rounded beauty; God knows beauty, heavenly designed beauty... And the world, of course, also sees beauty, but they see passing beauty and they see transient beauty. The world may see beauty in that which God does not see any beauty at all. The world says, "this is beautiful", and God says that is ugly, that is something terrible, it is abomination before the Lord."
