Rev. Paul Gabriel Datiri

Jos, Plateau: A Pastor of the Church of Christ in Nations (COCIN), Rev. Paul Datiri says men risk eternal judgment by maltreating their wives.

Any man who cannot serve his wife, Datiri said, Sunday, is "sentenced to hell".

In a Sermon at COCIN Local Church Council Zarmaganda, Jos, Datiri said, "Faithful service isn't done with pride and dominion or with authority and power but exemplary humility.

"An exemplary father ensures his family is happy, satisfied and secured.

"Fail on this and you will miss a good testimony here on earth and possibly miss eternal rest.

"Abraham died over 30years after Sarah his wife, but most men nowadays die before their wives due to the judgment they have incurred on themselves by failing on their responsibilities."

Datiri who analyzed "Faithfulness" with reference to 1 Corinthians 4:2, Matthew 20:25-28, Luke 12:40-50 and among others, James 5:4 charged men to care for their families as service to God.
