The former presidential spokesman of Nigeria, Reno Omokri is widely known for his online nuggets, he shared post on Facebook about church weddings and why he believes it is not a requirement for Christians.
I was teaching on biblical marriage and I told my listeners that the ‘White Wedding’ being practiced by many Christians is not biblical. It is EUROPEAN. I gave an example of how SIMPLE biblical marriage is by quoting Genesis 24:67 “Isaac brought her into his mother Sarah’s tent, and took Rebekah and she became his wife”. Biblical marriage occurs when there is consent between two adults, who don’t have consanguinity (siblings, first cousins) and with the knowledge (not consent) of both parents, for the purpose of life long matrimony. Someone responded and asked if we should follow that example, since Isaac was a Jew and not a Christian. My response is that this ignorance occurs because we don’t study our Bible. Christianity is a branch of Judaism. It was NOT Jesus or His disciples that came up with the name CHRISTIAN. It was PAGANS who gave them that name (Acts 11:26). Jesus and His disciples were/are Jews. Jesus Himself said “salvation is from the Jews.”-John 4:22. Romans 11:24 teaches that we, gentile believers, have been grafted, contrary to nature (meaning that it is spiritual) into the Jewish nation. The word ‘Christian’ is an aberration, just like many abominations we have accepted into the faith (Easter, a pagan festival, which the translators of the KJV used to replace the word Passover, which is in the original Greek manuscript of Acts 12:4. All other translations use the original word PASSOVER). I urge you my reader to discover your religion for yourself. STUDY the BIBLE #FreeLeahSharibu #RenosNuggets
