Challenges of Divergent Faiths:
Nelson Nwamara, a Nigerian man hailing from Abia, recently opened up about the challenges he and his Imo heartthrob faced just three years ago due to their different church affiliations.
Despite the love they shared, Nelson, a charismatic Catholic, and his wife, a pastor at Dominion City church, encountered significant obstacles in their journey to marriage.
A Remarkable Gift and Reflection:
In celebration of this milestone, Nelson marked the occasion by gifting his mother-in-law a brand new car.
Reflecting on their journey, he recalled the hurdles they faced, particularly the opposition from others because of their divergent religious backgrounds.
Religious Extremism and Opposition:
Nelson emphasized the nature of their extremism in their Christian faith, making it almost impossible for them to get married.
Despite support from immediate family members, the couple faced opposition from friends and even senior pastors who labeled Nelson as an idol worshipper due to his Catholic faith.
Overcoming Reluctance and Pressing On:
One notable challenge was his wife’s initial reluctance to inform her pastor about their wedding plans, fearing rejection based on past experiences. Nelson shared the advice he received from a Rev father, who suggested converting his wife to the Catholic church before marriage.
Despite these challenges, the couple, now blessed with two children, pressed on with their union.
No Regrets and Shared Values:
Reflecting on their journey, Nelson expressed no regrets, highlighting their nine-year friendship and shared values. He emphasized the similarities between him and his wife, praising her ambition and high moral standards.
Success and Unity:
Attributing his successes, including co-founding Homland Group, to the unwavering support of his wife, Nelson criticized church conflicts that he believes have left many eligible individuals single.
He emphasized their commitment to unity, worshiping in both Catholic and Dominion City churches to accommodate each other’s beliefs.Share on Facebook «||» Share on Twitter «||» Share on Reddit «||» Share on LinkedIn
