The world marked Valentine’s Day yesterday and many people are of the view that the origin of Valentine and its symbolism is not Biblical so should be abolished.
One of such people is Nollywood actress Patience Ozokwor. The veteran actress who is well known to many as Mama G raised serious concerns about the celebration, tagging it as a day for showing lust and not love.
“Valentine is not in the scripture and anything that is not in the bible should be discarded”. “Who is Valentine? The one that suffered for me and you is Jesus who should be celebrated.
“If the kind of love that Valentine has shown to people is for people to make love to each other without getting married, then it is against the will of God. “People should show love to their fellow human beings on daily basis. Your neighbor is the first person that you should show love.
“Every day is love day for me and there is no special day that is meant for love. What people are doing today in the name of love is lust.”
She advised young women to preserve their bodies to avoid unwanted pregnancies. Mama G also talked about her new found faith God and expressed extreme happiness doing the work of God.
