Reno Omokri Writes About Wedding, Christianity And Church by gbaskiboy(m): 11:10am On Jun 20, 2020
Mr Reno Omokri the former aide to ex- president GoodLuck Jonathan. I always follow his daily nuggets on facebook and on twitter. Bbut i found this one so interesting. Fellow nairalands what do you think about his post about wedding?


Wedding dress
* Cake
* Wedding ring
* Bridesmaids
* Groomsmen
* Bouquet
* Confetti
None of the above is necessary for a Christian wedding. They are all European culture. Africans were brainwashed to see White Wedding as Christian wedding. It is NOT! Read Scripture. A Scriptural wedding goes like this:
1. You find a girl
2. You ask her to marry you
3. She says yes
4. You inform your parents
5. You leave your parents house
6. You have a feast you can afford
No pastor or priest is involved. It is purely a family affair done at HOME, not CHURCH. Even the wedding Christ attended was at a HOME and He was invited as a GUEST! God made it simple. Man complicated it!

The power a priest or pastor has to say ‘I now pronounce you man and wife’, comes from man, not God. There is no Scriptural authority for that. God Himself pronounces you married once your parents consent to your union! This is how God defines marriage-“a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one”-Genesis 2:24. I have read Scripture from cover to cover in multiple languages. Scripture has no instance of a wedding being done in a church, temple, or synagogue. Isaac married at home (Gen 24:67). Christ attended a wedding at a HOME (John 2:2-10). Isaiah was a prophet. When he wanted to marry a fellow prophetess, all he did was invite 2 witnesses. And immediately the woman moved into his home (Isaiah 8:2-3). No ceremony at all. Are you holier than Isaiah? Hosea’s marriage was captured in only 1 verse-Hosea 1:3. God made marriage EASY. It is humans who made it complicated. Church has no business with wedding

The ONLY people involved are

* A man
* A woman
* Parents

No pastor or church is involved! It is a family affair

I agree with this. Same thing I was telling a friend that the Traditional wedding/Engagement is the real joining together,others are ceremony. Sad thing though even the Engagement is now poverty alleviation scheme, All thanks to Alaga iduro and ijoko. undecided

Not completely correct!

A Marriage needs to be Blessed! Someone who stands as a Representative of GOD needs to Bless the Marriage. E.g Pastor, priest, etc

GOD ALMIGHTY in the Beginning Blessed Adam and Eve..

Gen 1:28..

The Blessings spoken to a couple is important!

All the other things are not really important!

Modified; Ignore what people say! GOD ALMIGHTY is a God of Order.

Parental Blessings are good and important

But do not ignore the Blessings of your Pastor, priest ,etc.. it's very important

The representatives of God in a wedding are the parents of the couple, not anyone called Pastor, priest et al.

No blessing is greater than the parents’ blessings.

God was the father of Adam and blessed them himself, going by your analogy. He didn’t call on any angel to come as his representative to bless them

Time is changing... Wedding is for women. it's an event meant to celebrate the ladies who have not turned themselves to community distributor and live a pious life.

No matter what she wants on here wedding day,if she has been faithful, you can give her what she wants.

But you see these lonely online feminist in their 30s ehen lipsrsealed lipsrsealed

Na wah for Africa.

You do stylish wedding. Them go talk say you dey waste money.

You nor do stylish wedding. Them go say na poverty dey worry you.

You do moderate wedding. Them go say you too stingy.

You talk say anything dem talk nor be your business. Her village people go siddon on top your matter.

My advice? Anyhow you wan do am, people go still talk. Just do am as the spirit leads. If you listen to people, you go frustrate.

Afterall, what matters is not the wedding ceremony but the 'marriage' ahead.

Very annoying bunch! At my sister's wedding it got to a stage I had to call them to order. I went to one of them to caution them to stop the extortion.Then one replied "bi a se ma gba lojo ti eh na ni" ( that's how they will collect it on my own day) and I told them with what I've seen so far they won't be there. And to think after they packed the money they collected they still collect pay for the job done. Seriously I may scrap those people off when it's my turn.

Infact I will be doing lots of revolutions on that day, some things are just so meaningless to me.

He's right. Business people (like makeup artist, photographer, event planner, decorator, etc) only made a merchandise of the whole thing to f00l intending couples and leave them broke or poorer.

We all will get sense post-Covid. People are still getting married despite the inactivity of these business people. With an extra fee of 25-30k, you can invite the registry/magistrate people to come and join you both in your home. Pay your dowry and zoom off!


"It's your day, make it memorable bla bla bla",
they all say, but none of them will tell you that marriage is a journey. How do you start celebrating a journey you haven't even began so badly that you have to go broke or poorer in the process??

The way Africans carry European religion for head na wah.
Christianity itself is unAfrican.
People may choose to celebrate with groomsmen, bridesmaids, cakes or whatever shenanigans they want , just to show they are throwing a feast they can afford.

When Jesus attended the wedding, he never blessed the union. He was there as a guest. Now listen, God only needs THE HEAD of the family to pronounce blessing on the union for it come to pass regardless of the presence of a pastor/priest.

Personally, the ‘real’ marriage for me is a civil one not traditional or religious. However, I am not going to begrudge or judge Christians on how they wish to practice their faith.

For those citing Jesus at a wedding, Christianity didn’t exist then, Jesus participated in Jewish customs and attended a wedding ceremony that was probably Jewish.

Each religion have their way of joining two couples and those that practice said faith should be allowed to follow such practices without judgement.

I know for Catholics, a priest blessing your marriage is important, it’s one of the sacraments a Catholic observes while they’re on earth, the last one is death.

Edit:
I erroneously included last rites as one of the seven sacraments.

That's what you know!

JESUS Christ will not be there if the couples where godless people..

Everywhere JESUS performed Miracles it began with Prayers. Common sense should tell u that!

You need the Blessing of a God Representative!

The pastor should be invited to do the blessing on the traditional marriage after the rites. After that, all men to your abode! We should stop duplicating things. Even the white people don't do traditional marriage rites.
