The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye and Gospel Singer, Mercy Chinwo, has condemned the trending #SilhouetteChallenge ‘Satanic’ and has advised women not to partake in it, Globalgistng reports.
The #SilhouetteChallenge trend features ladies dancing in red lights, allowing viewers to only see the silhouettes of their naked bodies.
Adeboye expressed this on his Twitter handle whereas Chinwo wrote it on Instagram, urging women to know their self worth and not to follow devilish acts trend online.
She advised women to desist from imitating the ideals and opinions of the culture around them and be inwardly transformed by the Holy Spirit as she quotes the bible (Romans 12:2 ).
“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!”
“Do you know that there are some things that are not sins, but can strengthen the flesh to the point of eventually quenching the Spirit? Examples include not fasting (Psalm 35:13), not being able to abstain from sex even with your legally wedded spouse (1 Corinthians 7:5),”

“Dear women, you don’t have to follow every trend. Carry thyself with dignity, know your worth.. this is why you are different. “
“Let your light so shine before men so that they may see your good works (Lifestyle, character) and glorify your father in heaven.. #ISTANDAGAINSTSILHOUTTECHALLENGE.”
“Stop imitating the ideals and opinions of the culture around you, but be inwardly transformed by the Holy Spirit through a total reformation of how you think. This will empower you to discern God’s will as you live a beautiful life, satisfying and perfect in his eyes.
