Popular social media influencer, public figure, Author, and Activist Reno Omokri has shared his opinion on the white wedding in church.
According to Reno, it isn’t biblical and in posts that he shared on his Facebook page.
Reno is also a former media aide to ex-president Goodluck Jonathan, and he explained that Jesus Christ in the bible attended a wedding which was organized at home and not in a church building.
Reno said all that is needed for a wedding ceremony to take place, is a man, his wife, and their family members, not a church, pastor or priest.
He added that God simplified marriage, but Africans are copying the whites which have complicated it.
He wrote :
”Someone said church wedding is necessary because pastors are God’s representatives on Earth. To that man, my question is this: What are your parents? Devil’s representative? No blessing on Earth is greater than parent’s blessing.”
”After God, parents. Read Christ’s parables regarding marriage-Luke 14:8-10. It does not involve a priest or pastor. My dear people, these European ideas about church wedding are doctrines of men, there is nothing divine or holy about it. Holy matrimony only involves the couple and their parents. “
“That is why the only commandment amongst the Ten Commandments with a blessing attached to it is “Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long upon the land which the Lord your God is giving you”-Exodus 20:12”
