Religious leaders have condemned Pastor Aloysius Bugingo’s recent comments on marriage vows as misleading after he said ’till death do us part’ is not biblical and is the cause of murders between couples and challenged his congregation to show him a couple in the Bible that made such vows.
During lunch hours on the 9th day of January, Bugingo told his congressional at Canan Land in Makerere Kikoni, that ’till death do us part’ is not biblical and is the cause of murders between couples.
He further challenged his congregation to show him a couple in the bible that made such vows.
In his own words, pastor Bugingo said that “People do not just kill others. It is those vows when Abraham was marrying Sarah, did he make those vows? The vows are from hell,”
The Ministry of Ethics and Integrity is to summon Pastor Aloysius Bugingo of the House of Prayer Ministries International over his latest remarks on marriage vows in which he is quoted to have referred to them as satanic.
While speaking out on NBS News at 9, the Director for Ethics Integrity and Religious Affairs Rev. Canon Aaron Mwesigye says Bujingo’s ministry is turning out to be like the ‘’Kibwetere’’ cult.
Some of the leaders who have come out to condemn Bugingo on his remarks include the Rt. Rev. Johnson Twinomujuni, the Bishop of West Ankole Diocese who said the long Facebook post that those remarks don’t surprise him due to the fact that Bugingo divorced his wife on grounds of sickness.
“Does the Bible he has read countless times have the following verses: Rom. 7:2-3; Mal. 2:13-16; Heb. 13:4; Mat. 5:32; 19:4-9; plus 1 Cor. 7:2-40, and especially verse 10 which says, “To the married, I give this charge (not I, but the Lord), the wife should not separate from her husband.”
Verse 11b also states clearly, “and let not the husband put away his wife.” Again, does the Bible Bugingo have read contain Gen. 2:18; Eph. 5:33; Luke 16:18, and 1 Cor. 7:39 which says, “A wife is bound to her husband as long as he lives. But if her husband dies, she is free to get married to whom she wishes, but only in the Lord,” wrote the bishop.
