RCCG Bans Long Beard At Weddings (Beard Gang Grooms And Groomsmen) by Jesutomisin: 10:59am On May 26, 2018
The Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, has issued a directive banning grooms and groomsmen from wearing of long beards to wedding programmes to be conducted by the Church.

According to information in the memo, all grooms to get married in the church and their groomsmen must be checked properly to ensure they are not with Taliban Beards.

The church made this known in the memo released by the Assistant General Overseer in charge of Admin and Personnel.

The memo signed by the assistant general overseer, Pastor Johnson Odesola (Administration and Personnel), also contains other important rules which are expected to be followed by workers and ministers of the church.

According to Pastor Odesola, the directive came as a result of report of “certain loose practices that have been adopted during conduct of weddings in the Church”.

The memo further reads:”Ministers who have the responsibility of assessing the grown of the bride, must also ensure that the outfits of the bride’s maids are checked to ensure that the standards of the Church are not compromised.

“Prior to the wedding programme, the groom his groom’s men must be assessed to ensure that they are not wearing Taliban beards, which is against the doctrines of the Church.

Bridegroom with Taliban beard

“Every worker or department that will officiate must in wedding programmes should appear strictly in formal outfit

“All ministers should be guided by these directives, especially in parishes of the Mission that are licensed to conduct weddings.”

The memo

Recently, the Church issued a directive mandating intending couples to go for medical tests before wedding and this has continued to generate mixed reactions among members across the world.

I'm beginning to think all these so called memos are automatically generated by bloggers.

Even Jesus wore long beards.

Modified
All of you quoting me have serious problems. Jesus was a Jew and it is against their law to shave the hairs that grow on the sides of their head i.e beards.

It seems you have problem with comprehension.

The memo is against men wearing 'Taliban beards'. Do you sincerely think that a man with Taliban beards is really modest? RCCG has not banned wearing beards entirely as long as it is well trimmed.

Not allowing the Bridesmaids to continue wearing seductive dresses is also a good way to go.

Again, RCCG is trying to restore some sanity in the Church.

ok noted.

My only concern is how such internal memo is brought to the public domain for discussion or criticism.

Are you canvassing for votes against a legislative bill or something?

The memo is directed to whom it may concern.Whoever brought this is worsening matters as the memo is directed to church workers, ministers and pastors. At times I wonder if official memo are posted on social media the way some churches are.

And that's one reason to ban grooms and their friends from growing one. Some might think Jesus turned and married at RCCG!

These RCCG members on nairaland are foolish especially those posting memos and information meant for their church on blogs and media. Every organization has policies and secrets. These ones will even post official letters of their church on blogs. To achieve what purpose?

This happens when people decide to follow their "commandments" instead of God own

Leviticus 21:5

'They shall not make any baldness on their heads, NOR SHAVE OFF THE EDGES OF THEIR BEARDS, nor make any cuts in their flesh.

Leviticus 19:27

'You shall not round off the side-growth of your heads NOR HARM THE EDGES OF YOUR BEARDS.



Funny to believe its the same old testament which prescribed "tithing" which they prefer for suiting them

how does keeping beards becomes immoral?

didn't Jesus keep beards?if beard ls wasn't important,God wouldn't have created it.

when it comes to exceeding power members ,they will be forming holiness is their watchword and be using scripture to exact it on their members...but when it comes to ungodly and unbiblical activities of the administration of the church,they tell u "God told them"

I think many will stop doing church wedding, what does beard has to do with one's personality? his way of life? or having no beard equals crisis free marriage?

Even the picture of Jesus we dey see, he get beard.
