Your African Native Wedding Is As Holy As A Church Wedding — Reno Omokri

On October 6, 2018 72 Comments

Reno Omokri, a former aide to erstwhile President, Goodluck Jonathan, has stated in his recent article that there is nothing Christian about a White Wedding.

According to the popular author, most Africans have a damaged psyche which has made them believe that only church weddings are acceptable in the eyes of God.

He wrote:

“Church marriage or White Wedding, originated in the Catholic Church in the year 1563.

“There is NOTHING Christian about it and EVERYTHING European about it. It is not even in The Bible.

“Your native African marriage is as valid, in God’s sight, as a White Wedding‪. The psyche of many Africans is so damaged to the extent they believe church weddings are the only acceptable marriage in God’s eye.

    TRADITIONAL WEDDING IS THE HOLIEST WEDDING.
    YOU ARE OBEYING THE WORDS OF GOD.
    FOR RESPECTING THE TRADITION, YOUR PARENTS WILL BLESS THE MARRIAGE.
    BUT WHERE YOU DID NOT OBEY YOUR TRADITION ; YOUR PARENTS WILL COURSE YOU , AND THE MARRIAGE WILL NOT GO WELL.
    PLEASE CHURCH MARRIAGE IS ASKING GOD TO SANCTIFY THE MARRIAGE.
    IT IS NOT A MUST THAT YOU WILL DO CHURCH WEDDING. ANY GOD FEARING MAN OF GOD WILL NOT WED YOU IF YOU HAVE NOT COMPLETED THE TRADITIONAL.
    AFTER TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE IS COURT MARRIAGE, FOR DOCUMENTATION.

    I wouldn’t say that. I’d just say it’s as binding as a church wedding. What matters is if you’re a Christian it should be done to the witnessing of your brethren and in the presence of God. A church building is very much omittable when planning your marriage.

    Am a Christian, yes I am but must say the truth, white wedding is not in the Bible, quote me wrong if you can, white wedding is the British way of marriage, any pastor who tells you that without White wedding that you will not make heaven is fake.

    African Traditional Wedding Is More Holier Than The Borrowed Slave Mentally White Wedding. Truth Must Be Told, Once Your Parents And Kings Men Blessed and Ordained Your Marriage, God Has Blessed And Ordained It Also. It’s In My Opinion, That Our Custodians Should Introduced A Legitimize Traditional Wedding Certificate. To Bring Back Our Traditional Heritage To The Global Lime Lights.

      Usman M Kallamu … God recognises the Pride Prize n Parental acceptance n demands met before a Marriage is taken as Legal. Traditional Marriage is as better than any other Marriage. How many Whites pays bride Price? Can you Wed a Lady in Church in your place n take her from the Parents without performing the Traditional Wedding?

    I mean there also should be nothing wrong in borrowing a culture especially if its fantastic. BTW if we worship God in the Church, no probs. Asking God and His Ordained to bless our marriage. My take though
