Author and activist, Reno Omokri shared his thoughts on the concept of church wedding saying it isn’t biblical.

The former media aide to ex-president Goodluck Jonathan, in series of posts which he shared on his Facebook page, Reno Omokri said the concept of church wedding isn’t backed up by the scriptures.

According to Reno,  Jesus in the bible attended a wedding held at home and not a church. 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 in copying the whites have complicated it.

Read what he wrote below;

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”
