A Nigerian man identified as Opeyemi, has narrated how a Baptist church asked him to take off his earring while he was on a groomsman duty in the church.

According to Opeyemi, he left and waited for his friend who fully backed his decision at the wedding reception and there is a mixed reactions about his decision as many wondered why he could not just take them off for a few hours.

Opeyemi, narrating the encounter, he said that he was at a Baptist church in Lagos as one of the groomsmen for his friend’s wedding when he was asked to pull off his earrings, adding that he left the service immediately for the reception as he would never follow such dogma.

He, therefore, used the opportunity to lambaste Nigerians version of Christianity. When people told him that he ought to have honoured his friend and acted accordingly, he said his friend was in full support of him.

It's satanic, shameful, and demonic for a man to be wearing earring. The church is a holy place and God have to be regarded and respected.

Why not remove it just for the sake of the person you came to honour?

You just disrespected your friend with this inane arrogant behavior!

Do you know if there was a discussion around this before now?

The Reverend was not wrong, but the manner of approach was inappropriate
But did you see the manner of approach or you are counting on what the man has explained.
That's one side of the story, we haven't heard that of the pastor
IMO, we should act like the Romans while in Rome

That guy is stupid. If I were the pastor, I would have asked all of them to go home. That's a very bad omen for the marriage they were about to go into.

Keeping folks who cannot go the extra miles to stand by your side is really unfortunate.

Just do that for your friend. It was his day for Goodness sake.

Imagine him "lambasting" what he doesn't understand.
Everyone forming nonsense.
The friend who chose him as bestman got him into the mess.
What does he mean by wearing earrings to the Church? To show that he can do whatever he likes?

So the earrings is now the problem? Religion has took over our brains in Africa that’s why we have problems we claim to be civilized and know more than the westerners who brought this religion to us.

Mark 7:15
'there is nothing outside a man [such as food, earrings etc] which by going into him,
or on him can defile him [morally or spiritually];
but the things which come out of [the heart of] a man are what defile and dishonor him.
'

On the contrary, as I beg to differ and propose that true and pure religion, which has no flaws or fault and such that God approves us is not opium of anyone talkless people of Africa, its false religion, bigotry, hypocrisy and the Pharisaical spirit thats the opium of people, the sheepole most especially

There's nothing like European ,American or African Christianity.
You are not a Christian because you go to Church but because you imitate Christ.
The Bible talks about selfsame spirit...This is what leads all children of God.
It all begins when you become born again ( converted).
Anyone can claim to be born again But their fruit will tell.

I don't think this is about 'black mentality' The issue here is lack of respect and oversized ego. When you go to a place you respect there rules there.

God bless you. It's sad that people especially those who call themselves Christians want the church to accept and accommodate whatever (mis) behaviour and wrong mindset they want to bring to the church without query. I hope his parents would clap for him for wearing earrings...nonsense! The Reverend was wrong to apologise to him!

Emancipate yourself bro, you only have one life, do not allow others live it for you.

The church has its rule like many organisations , it is their space and not his space , if the church doesn't want it then he should abide by it or gtfo. Nobody is saying he shouldn't wear his earrings in his house or wherever it's accepted but calling out the church for not letting him wear his earrings in the premises of the church is just stupidity
