A Nigerian gospel artiste, Afy Douglas, says women who wear nose rings, waist beads and other bodily adornments are witches. He also said they have an unnatural sexual orientation and are very rebellious.
Afy Douglas made this statement in a Facebook post where he detailed why such fashion trends should not be encouraged by the Christain community. He wrote, “On nose rings, waist beads, multiple ear piercings and other adornments. It is rather not complementary that Teachers of the Bible still respond to issues (big or small) with a traditional wave of the hand. We have become lazy from preaching and teaching other people’s messages rather than personal study and research.
“I am personally turned off when I see such adornments because I grew up with the notion and assumptions of what they represent: Rebellion, Witchcraft, unnatural sexual orientation. Will that stop me from taking an objective and spiritual look at it when it is raised? Will I wave it off because of a traditional, non-scripture supported mindset even when surrounded by people who need me to make clarity because of God’s appointment on my life?”
He continued to question why people have become more accepting of such dressing when it speaks poorly of the church. He mentioned that people behave like ostriches, who stick their heads in the sand, hoping that danger goes away. In this instance, he says that the ‘danger’ is here with us, and it is time to deal with it accordingly.
“Why do we still shy away from conversations that have become the biggest issues in our counselling rooms and behind the scenes? Why do we like mysteries like this? Why do we try so hard to repair veils that tore when Jesus made the ultimate sacrifice? If you are not equipped to speak, by all means, refrain.
“You are afraid people will become too liberal and free-willed. Abi, you are afraid people will begin to ask too many questions about everything. It is too late, the ship already sailed. It is time to wake up and ask the Holy Spirit to take us deeper so we can answer and become answers to the questions of the world,” he continued.
According to him, this is the truth that would set believers free.
