      Yes even Sarah knew not to compare her husband to God, she called him my lord not God. Two very different terms, don’t get it twisted. That her statement is blasphemous.

    I see a woman truly in love and living out marital bliss. So refreshing! Oga this woman truly loves you, keep treating her like a queen and she will keep blossoming into grannyhood.

    Well that’s very original mercy. I’ve heard people comparing their spouses to saints but never to God. Wow!!

    We are all created in the image of the most high. It’s blasphemous to suggest one person stands out and is closer to God in nature. We are created in his IMAGE BUT OUR WAYS ARE DIFFERENT FROM HIS ISIAIAH 55.. English is not our first language mercy. No go use am wound yourself.

    Congrats MJ. What she actually meant by “…the closest thing to God”,is very far from what most of you think. God is love,and she is experiencing that sort of love that God is,in her marriage. She never referred to him as God,neither did she call him her God. She is simply talking about her husband having an atrribute of God,which is pure,undying love,which truly speaking, is very rare today(in our country and even in most homes).

    Who is God to you? To me God is LOVE; He is ever loving, ever forgiving, ever merciful, ever generous, kind, humble, He listens, He understands, He only wants the best for me and you. Mercy says ‘the closest thing to God’ meaning the person who is closest to all the good that has happened in her life is her man. They have two great children…those of us who have kids with men we love know exactly what she means. When you meet a man that loves you UNCONDITIONALLY and treats you like a goddess…a queen…believe me…you see God in him. I know because God has blessed me with true love and I know that it is rare

    Omo Husband Worship don over take Naija o! Women are so grateful to find a decent husband that they are attributing godlike status to them. You better be careful. God is a jealous God, when you start referring to your husband as “God”, no mind wetin go come after o okay. I am all for loving and adoring our husbands, I love, respect, value and honor my husband but he is NOT my “god”.

      Gbam!!!.Mercy Na illiteracy be your problem. Worship God not your flesh and blood husband. Your husband can be as good as Gold but he still can never be comparable to GOD.

      The closet thing to God in existence. Are you saying God is fictional and does not exist in reality but that if there was a God your husband fits the bill. I am just surprised that a woman can say this nonsense . You’ve just lost a fan babe. You yab!
