General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye has weighed in on the ongoing #Silhouettechallenge trending across social media platforms.
Although the clergyman did not directly mention the challenge, he warned his followers against viewing pictures or videos on social media where someone is almost nude, which is peculiar to the challenge.
According to him videos like these, quench the spirit, and strengthens the flesh.
In his words,
“What are the things that the flesh usually tells you to do? They are listed in Galatians 5:19-21 as you must have earlier read in today’s Bible text. You think that you can view a few pictures or videos on social media where someone is almost nude and it is okay.
“You are quenching the Spirit. That little window you give to indulge the flesh will strengthen it such that you would find yourself going back to those pictures/videos after that time. The Bible is very clear – don’t ever do anything that will quench the Spirit. Never!”.
The #Silhouette challenge which is currently trending across all social media platform, involves posing in a doorway before turning yourself into a sultry black silhouette against a red background.
