That has become a ritual in most Nigerian churches. It is never strange. But the truth is that the Pastors are almost always fooled because the Doctors are Nigerians and knows what to do even without being told by the would-be couples.

Most cases, the Pastors choose the doctor but this too doesn't guarantee reality.

well THEY WERE NEVER SERIOUS IN THE FIRST PLACE.... the bible says ONLY THE WICKED RUNS WHEN NO MAN IS PURSUING...

People PREFER to WORK for GOD than to WALK WITH GOD and most nonchalantly to OBEY God.... YET THEY WANT HIS BLESSINGS.

people are problematic everywhere.... THE PASTOR MAY HAVE THOUGHT ON THE BED UNDEFILED BEFORE MARRIAGE AND BOTH OF THEM MAY HAVE BEEN DOING THE "THANG" secretly.... SO NOW THEY RAN BECAUSE THEY FELT EXPOSED...

If they met a REAL MAN OF GOD, they may have been exposed from their first day in Church.

I am a Christian and I can bold say 90% of African churches are stupid and vain.

Mary would have terminated Jesus's pregnancy if she was a Nigerian Christian.

By the way, church wedding should be abolished because it is not necessary. Court and traditional weddings are far better.

At least they wouldn't ask for wedding and special donations to the church account.

Lol. Well, I have not read how many marriages were conducted in the church in the bible, not even the one where Jesus turned water to wine.

For me , once you have paid the bride price, she has already legally become your wife and you can start having babies.

But since they have decided to go to church, let them obey the rules there.

It is however not a sin not to have a 'white wedding'. Na our copy copy and overdo dey cause all these nonsense.

I don't see anything wrong with pregnancy b4 marriage.


All sin na sin. A sin has been committed already, our God is a forgiving Father always ready to accept us when we confess our sins and forsake them.


I don't see y any pastor will chase someone away bcoz of sin against God that simply mean they are claiming to be god .

What's the need for pregnancy test ? If they stop the wedding, it will only increase the rate of baby mama's.

Only Africans/Nigerians conduct several weddings, yet some of the marriage will crash later.

Anyways, if it is the church directive that they must present pregnancy test before wedding, they can decide to do court wedding and continue with their life or they can consider going to another church for wedding.

Fact is, church wedding is not a must... If they are not cool with it, it doesn't make them any less married.

You said they are married traditionally baa? That means their parents both consented? Brideprice paid and all? Okay.

Who is that Godman asking for pregnancy test? When Jesus attended a Jewish wedding in Cana, who demanded for pregnancy test results that time?

In my Church, you don't go to any hospital you want for the test, the Church will refer you to their own lab or hospital.

Seems you Church is already corrupted the way you sounded.

In their own lab or hospital, it is made up of people with impeccable and tested character, not Yahoo boy doctors.

Don't come back and say everybody can be bought or everyone is corrupt! Speak for yourself and your Church

The pastor must have knacked that woman without protection, that's why he's requesting for pregnancy result.. Before DNA will fall his hand, or the child will have round head and flat nose like him.

What arrant nonsense. Our Lord Jesus talked about these kinds of people in Matthew 15 vs 9. He said- "In vain they worship me, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men."

Who said you must be married in church before you can have conjugal relations with your spouse?? Who said you must be wedded in church before your marriage is blessed? Man, of course, not God. I recall the arena where Jesus performed his first recorded miracle was at a Jewish wedding in Cana.

When all traditional marriage rites are completed, a couple are legally married in the eyes of God, man and the law. It is us human being imposing man made restrictions, dogma and utterly ridiculous and carnal demands in the name of God.

I suggest people should research the history of white weddings before being swayed by all manner of false teachings.

Kudos to preachers like Pastor Chris Ojigbani who have long denounced these unscriptural and ignorant rules in the church.

Why not follow them up and find out why they didn't bring you a feed back, before concluding. Besides the guy have paid dowry for the traditional marriage to have taken place of which you attended...

What's so special about Church wedding � (White weeding). I see no reason of wasting time, energy and money all in the name of Church wedding. If my girlfriend don't want us to break up she should never mention anything about White Wedding cos that will be the end of everything

this type of marriage has a lot of hidden agenda...and at the end, when the yawa go burst,

you will see many of them that shout hossana today....blaming the innocent pastor

he has done his duty...there is nothing wrong in demanding for a pregnancy test b/4 wedding

experience they say, is the best teacher, have we NOT seen where a lady has cunningly given another man's pregnancy to an unsuspecting bride?

Depends.. If they plan to do church, then they have to wait until after every marriage rite is satisfied before acting as couple.
