Popular Nigerian author, Reno Omokri has made an assertion that the tradition of a church wedding does not conform to the belief in Christianity, hence church wedding is not a Christian wedding.
According to the writer, the idea is based on seeking the pastor’s blessing, which in fact is a disrespect to the family who is supposed to officiate weddings and not pastors..
Reno Omokri further added that he disagrees with those that justify the necessity of church wedding.
“Church wedding is not Christian wedding. Some people say it is necessary because pastors are God’s representatives on Earth. My question is this: What are your parents? Devil’s representative? No blessing on Earth is greater than parental blessings,” he wrote.
