Marriage: Reno Omokri Reveals That Parents Can Seal A Union Without A Pastor
Reno Omokri weighs in on the importance of parental consent in marriage above that of pastors, claiming that the latter is both irrelevant and unscriptural.
According to the human rights campaigner, the tradition of allowing a minister to oversee the union of two prospective spouses is not scriptural.
Reno Omokri confirmed in a Facebook post that the parents’ consent is enough to seal the union without the pastor.
“It is unscriptural to get pastoral consent for marriage before parental consent. God invented marriage in Genesis 2:24. Those He included was the couple and their parents. No mention of pastor or priest. Don’t let ANY pastor put a burden on you that God DID NOT put. From Genesis to Revelation, Scriptural marriages have ALWAYS been a family affair, not a church issue. Do not be deceived by any pastor, no matter how highly placed. Take your guidance from Scripture, not man. Get parental consent, not pastoral consent
Read the entire Scripture for yourself. It is not hard. You can do it. Nowhere do you see anyone consulting priests, prophets or pastors before choosing a marriage partner. Isaac consulted his parents. Jacob consulted his parents. The 10 commandments command you to honour your parents, not your pastor!
If your parents attend your wedding, they are automatically God’s representatives, even if the wedding takes place in your village.”
