President of Winner’s Chapel and founder of Covenant University, Bishop David Oyedepo, during his Sunday sermon told his congregation that the idea of gender equality and women liberation is the reason for the high rate of divorce cases in the world.

He added that the increasing call for and approval of equality between women and men has spilled into their marital lives.

The man of God revealed that women now equate themselves with their husbands, against the biblical doctrine which states that women ought to be submissive to their husbands and that men should love their wives.

In buttressing his point, he also stated that cases of divorce are common in the western world because they do not follow the teaching of God and have started imbibing self-made laws that allow them to live with near-absolute freedom.

"When you copy the west, you make a huge mistake. They have murdered freedom. they encourage Gays and lesbians. You want to be equals with your husband and you want peace? its impossible". he added
