Nigeria's controversial evangelist says women wearing leggings will not make heaven

- A Nigerian evangelist, Victor Edet, says women who wear leggings, tights and trousers hav a zero chance of making heaven

- Edet maintains that there is no excuse that should guarantee the wearing of such by women

- The evangelist, however, receives opposing reactions from his friends and followers

Are you a woman who loves wearing trousers, leggings and 'tight'? A controversial Nigerian evangelist, Victor Edet, says you will not make heaven.

Edet even quoted Deuteronomy: 22-5, a portion of the Bible, to drive home his point and argue that there is no excuse for those engaged in wearing such outfits.

The verse of the Bible says: “A woman shall not wear anything that pertains to a man, nor shall a man put on a woman's garment, for all who do so are an abomination to the LORD your God."

However, there has been controversies surrounding what should amount to the differences between what a man should wear as against that of a woman.

Edet argues further that even the winter season in some parts of the world should not guarantee a woman wearing such.

He said:

"The cold weather in Europe, America and Canada shouldn't be an excuse why you should wear trouser, tight or teggings.
There are women who wore skirts in ancient day's in Europe, American and Canada before Satan introduced female trouser.
If you are still wearing trouser, tights and leggings as a lady, your chance's of getting to Heaven is zero."

His position did not, however, go down well with many of his friends and followers on social media. Some educated him on reasons why it would be difficult for ladies in countries experiencing cold weather to carry out daily activities without such dresses.

One of them, Felicia Olarewaju, said:

"You can't go to work when your feet are cold! Some people lose their leg (sic) in the winter! It takes only 5 minutes for hypothermia to set in! You also have to wear gloves or your fingers can burn! I have refugees who lost their fingers! You need to wear a cap and cover your nose with woolen scarf or you can burn your face!"

Rachel Jusztachowski, another respondent, queried:

"I've gone astray for wearing trousers for manual work??? Take the plank out of your own eye before you point out the speck in mine. Your posts don't glorify God you post for likes and reactions and to stir up tempers.
"Let's speak about Jesus rather than the clothing. Do you expect me to wear sackcloth for months too if I am in mourning. Don't shame my Jesus with your weird fixations." earlier reported that the same Edet had at a time called on popular gospel singer, Tope Alabi, to stop using make-ups.

He had warned Tope not to end up labouring in vain by wearing wigs, attachments, earrings, makeup.
