As A Christian, Is Court Wedding In Place Of Church Wedding Acceptable By God? by arsenic33(m): 9:55am On Sep 10
So many intending marriages have been frustrated by marriage committee in some churches. Some churches will even tell one to attend marriage classes for 6 months but after wedding the marriage still crashes. Some churches will even tell intending couples to summarise the Bible from Genesis to Revelation.

Please, as a Christian by faith, is court wedding acceptable by God? Is it a must a Christian be joined by a church Pastor in the church?

As a Christian its not ideal to be joined outside church the pronouncement of the prophet is paramount to joining the husband and wife together

Yes

A lot of churches will make you feel other wise, thats their way.

Once you settle the parents traditionally you are married in the eyes of God simple, the court is for you to have a legal cert of sort. its for legal purposes and you say practically the same vows they say at the church (at least in ikoyi reg) joined with either bible or ring. So the church brouhaha is a repetition and more of a feferity.

If you now feel you need pastoral blessings after your wedding go to his office and he will pray for you that's all.


God recognizes court marriage don't let them deceive you.

Its not ideal or its not bibilcal ?

We are talking about in the eyes of God, what does the bible say marriage is not what we say marriage is?

Biblically can a christain who got wedded at the registry or only traditionally marry another wife? The answer is no.

1cor 6.17 says "he that is joined unto the lord is one spirit" kindly explain how that relates to court marriage except you are trying to say God does not sanction those joined traditionally or even in registry.


To fulfill all righteousness you can do the three.I accept but saying God doesn't recognize one I won't agree.

Well the court talked about is law court for dispute settling not registry marriage, technically what we call court wedding doesn't take place at a "law court" its at a marriage registry it we that call it court wedding.

Court wedding doesn't take place at "law court" Ikoyi registry is not a court, the Local govt area secretariats used for "court wedding" are not law courts

And who presides over the marriage. The person making the pronounciation on whose authority is he acting upon? God or man?

Who presides on a traditional marriage at the village, on whose authority are they joined .On whose authority are the village elders acting upon? Except you are saying a trad marriage is not valid in the eyes of God.

Sorry I am answering your questions with a question . I am learning too.

Traditional marriage is not valid in the eyes of God. Is it an occasion they pour libations for their ancestors? There is a difference between paying the bride price and traditional wedding, When the former is done, in the sight of God u become husband and wife. Now all other things that follow can as well be left out. That is why i used the word "ideal" in my first comment.
Now a prophet is a mouthpiece of God, and the bible says how shall they believe if they dont hear, so the pronouncement of a prophet is intended to voice out the seal of that marriage but spiritually the marriage is sealed once the bride price has been paid.
Now in court marriage u take an oath which has legal consequences if the oath is broken that is why people prefer to wed there, the same court can dissolve ur marriage and the two processes is biblically wrong. First bible says "let ur yes be yes and nay be nay" second the bible says "what God has joined together no man should put assunder"

Once you have paid the bride price of a woman she is 100% your wife.

Even the Bible clearly recognises the joining of a man and woman by HER Father as the most legitimate form of wedding.

This you people's church wedding is just another charade. The only legitimate wedding there is as far as the Bible is concerned, is the traditional wedding some of you have refused to acknowledge

Dis discussion have been pondered on several tyms on Nairaland and has subsequently been answered by many in the discussions..
My answer: even after introduction and traditional marriage, if ur union is nt registered in the approriate legal institution then u are not LEGALLY MARRIAGE..
To me oo, in nigeria church wedding is jxt over-hyped.

This signboard has seen a lot of pple and seen by a lot more pple. I wonder if pple are compelled to snap in front of it. The least I expect from the Ministry or it's workers, is to put in more aesthetic touch to this signpost

To the post.. ..God accepts any wedding or relationship He is invited to partake and dwell in..(Note...the consenting adults and the couple's families are those ideal to bless the union and invite God) .....regardless of the Where, When and other W's involved. But then, these "new generation" pastors will think otherwise. The memory of guests at my wedding murmuring aloud after the pastors have virtually sucked their pockets empty in the name of several "offerings" lingers

Another area of concern is the Child naming ceremony and dedication.. ...but that's another discussion for another thread.

white wedding is the original name. Not even church wedding

And white wedding is the western version of a traditional marriage. That is why the girl's FATHER walks her down the aisle and hands her over to the man. That is why the official asks 'does anyone have a reason why these two should not be joined in matrimony'?

It is a traditional wedding that misled black people have adopted as God's wedding. Not everything white people do has God attached to it
