All he/she does is to bring and organize the vendors, provides no real tangible service or product compared to the vendors, yet bill large amounts. The #brainwashing begins there

Ohhh! Your well of wisdom would never run dry. These are the kind of people who want Africans to remain under the shackles of mental slavery.

We needed a pandemic like covid19 to curb our excesses, especially in this part of the world.

Not totally true sir.
Any marriage without the acknowledgement by the government is null and void in the face of man and God.
Most of the weddings done at home and even the church don't have permits from the government. As far as God and man is concerned, that marriage does not exist.
People don't know that the marriage certificate the church gives couple on their wedding day is authorized by the government. If any church doesn't have such permit, they are wasting their time.
In summary, whether you wed in church or in your bedroom... If the government is not aware; you are wasting your time.

There is no need arguing with you.
The average Nigerian born again is dogmatic and wants to teach Christ how the Bible should be written.
If you see some of them telling you which church to attend and which one to avoid, you will think they heard from God.
Yet thesame people have not attended any of their only church since April 2020, Corona Virus started and they are still alive.
Stop confusing yourself, this marriage thing that the illiterate African society uses to hold single men to stay single and create poverty alleviation for a lady's parents, is what smart men have seen and started the Baby mama movement.
Wedding is a total waste of scarce resources. You only need the consent of A GIRL'S PARENTS TO MARRY the girl.
In the Bible, the man does not need the consent of his own parents to marry a girl of his choice.
Keeping oneself in bondage and claiming Christianity is Stupidity... capitalized.

Apostle Paul wrote about marriage AFTER Christianity began. In no single place did he write about a marriage being blessed by pastors, priests etc probably because he knew all Christians are priests. If this was an important part of Christianity he would have said something about it.

Leve the guy ... He has not accepted the reality that the era of gatekeepers is gone.
He will agree with you only innso far as you don't criticise the church. But the church was itself borne from criticism... Christ came to open people's eyes from the slavery the then religion had placed them into. Ad let them know that God doesn't need someone to interpret for him.
If you decide to not involve any church in your wedding.... God won't cast you in hell for it... There are Biko haramites and corrupt government officials to fill hell... which priest officiated Isaac's marriage?
|Re: Reno Omokri Writes About Wedding, Christianity And Church by kafeii123: 10:20am On Jun 21, 2020|

I think he profits from the institutionnonevway or another. I hope I'm wrong though.
|Re: Reno Omokri Writes About Wedding, Christianity And Church by kafeii123: 10:30am On Jun 21, 2020|
Where two or three are gathered in my name...there I will be with them ... That's what Christ himself said. He didn't mandate that any of the two be a church ordained priest.
Na una dey let people become atheistic. It's the offense we continually berate Islam for. Unwillingness to adapt to the times.
You're on this forum pastor righteous... Please allow your members some latitude. It will show that you're truly evolved and are not part of the those who pronounce them hell bound just for wearing trousers.
Paul said the kingdom of God is not rigid... it's not about touch or taste not

Sir, can you please give us any scripture text where a pastor, priest or Bishop blessed a marriage before it became valid? I really would want to learn that from you.
Thanks in advance.

My Brother, Here is my point!
GOD Almighty as our Heavenly Most High Priest pronounced Blessings on Adam and Eve.
When Abramham came back from back from the slaughter of the 5 kings and Recovery of Jos brothers son lot, He approached Melchizedek who the Bible calls the priest of the most High and He Blessed Abramham.
GOD Almighty personally Ordered that the Levites are responsible for specific duties pertaining to Worship , and things of GOD. It's a Specific office!
In today World, when people have issues and challenges, they make effort to see a Man of GOD or someone they believe is that office..
Now, Blessings from your parents is wonderful, Awesome, good..
But also Ensure you Get the Blessings and Pronouncements of a GENUIE Servant of GOD..

He is partially correct.All the European aspects correct.But a pastor must be there as God's representative.You cannot get all God expects us to do verbatim in the Bible but the Holy Spirit is a guide.The Bible is complete,dont misunderstand me.Where is it in the Bible that we should go to school,to brush our teeth, etc Which naming ceremony is in the Bible where you have a pastor there.All the names given to Jacobs children were by his wives.So certain.cultural practicea are okau if it does not contradict the Bible.
Yes.White wedding not in the Bible but.not a sin.Does Omokri know that a wife being a virgin is also a criterior in the Bible?If someone is not a virgin and has repented, her wedding is holy and biblical.The same goes to the man.Some of these things are not important issue.The main issue is fear God,work in holiness and please the Lord.Matt.6:33

You are referencing biblical stories that have no correlation with the discussion. Marriage is a family affair from the ancient times. God made a wife for Adam because there was no woman on earth then as the Bible reported, He also blessed their marriage because Adam had no earthly father. But since after Adam, that role has been assigned to fathers. Abraham instructed his servant to go to his place of origin to get a wife for Isaac from among his people, and when that was done, it was Abraham that blessed their marriage.
When Isaac was about to die, he requested for a sport (Bush animal delicacy) from Esau for him to bless him. That role of blessing rested on the father's from the ancient times.
You may say there were no priests then, but there were priests, prophets and Levites during the time of David, Solomon and others. All those biblical figures married, some even had many wives, yet not one took his wife to a priest for him to bless their marriage.
Go and read Leviticus and see where Moses outlined the duties of the priests and Levites, blessing of marriage wasn't part of that.
|Re: Reno Omokri Writes About Wedding, Christianity And Church by Kobojunkie: 2:20pm On Jun 21, 2020|
God Almighty is not our High priest in heaven. He is God Himself.
God never told the Levites to officiate marriages.
And He certainly never told them they had the capability to bless or curse anyone. They had no such power or privilege where God is concerned
Since you mentioned melchizedek's blessing on Abraham, here is a question for you to ponder. What did melchizedek bless Abraham with and where do we see that blessing materialize or become sight in Abraham's story?
|Re: Reno Omokri Writes About Wedding, Christianity And Church by Kobojunkie: 2:32pm On Jun 21, 2020|
God already blessed marriage. A pastor being there on your wedding day is useless and has nothing to do with God.
Note: God's blessings on marriage applies to all marriages, not some.

Kobojunkie:What is a Christian wedding? What’s the difference between a Christian wedding and a non-Christian wedding?
Most Christian weddings start from the pre-marriage counseling, it’s an important part of a Christian wedding, where bible studies and verses that serve as a guideline for a Christian marriage is taught and shared. It prepares the couple for a Christian marriage.
Yes a pastor is human but he/she is still a minister in charge of a Christian congregation. Christians go to them to minster/teach/guide/mentor the word of God. A pastor also provides spiritual leadership, not ALL parents can fulfill that role.
A Christian wedding is much more than just a blessing of the couple. It’s also a service where the congregation and the couple are ministered to and there’s exchange of vows reaffirming the promises that make a Christian marriage. Some people have special relationships with their pastor and a pastor or a spiritual leader play significant roles in some people’s lives.
I’ve noticed most people are more against the Western culture of a Christian wedding and the cost, and not a Christian wedding. You can have a Christian wedding with your African culture, you can literally get married in front of your pastor say bible verses, profess your love and say your vows in front of friends and family in your iro and buba, no wedding party, no reception, make up artist, photographs etc.
A Christian wedding is the joining of a couple in a church ceremony (service, mass etc), the same ceremony you participate in every Sunday because you’re a Christian. We don’t have to change the definition because we don’t like the modern day commercialization of a ‘white’ wedding.
For those saying no reference of a wedding in the Bible yada yada yada yet you attend church ceremonies of your different denominations every Sunday, the way your church perform their service is it in the Bible? Why would you criticize a Christian wanting to have a Christian wedding? You don’t have to have one, your choice, doesn’t stop you from being a Christian.
|Re: Reno Omokri Writes About Wedding, Christianity And Church by Kobojunkie: 4:23pm On Jun 21, 2020|
There is no such thing as a Christian wedding.
Jesus Christ never told you how to do weddings, neither did the Almighty God, Ok?
In the eyes of the Almighty everlasting God, what you typed up there amounts to more meaninglessness done in His name, and He does not take kindly to people lying in His name.
|Re: Reno Omokri Writes About Wedding, Christianity And Church by doitforyou(f): 4:35pm On Jun 21, 2020|
Kobojunkie:Jesus Christ and almighty God never told you how to organize a ceremony or what day or days you should fellowship in his name, yet Christianity and it’s different denominations have created and adopted service styles to do that.
They’ve even gone further to create holidays in his name. Were Christians told how and when to celebrate the birth, death, resurrection of Christ? Why selectively pick and choose which man made traditions that are responsible for present day Christianity to discard or to adopt?
The way and style Christians worship is purely the traditions and culture of men, why only draw the line at a Christian wedding ceremony?
