Reno Omokri, a former aide of ex-president Goodluck Jonathan, has said church wedding vows are satanic.
He said the “for better, for worse; in sickness and in health” were satanic and invented by man. He further said it was untrue that any wedding not conducted in church is void.
Explaining further, the writer and inspirational speaker, said the vows were a curse as against the blessing God had designed for couples – “goodness and mercy shall follow you all the days of your life”-Psalm 23:6.
Omokri said this in a tweet on Thursday.
The power of a priest or pastor to pronounce you ‘MAN and WIFE’ comes from man, not from God. Read The Bible. It is God’s letter to you. There is nothing like that in The Bible. Marriage is a FAMILY matter involving the couple and their parents ONLY #FreeLeahSharibu #RenosNuggets— Reno Omokri (@renoomokri) June 27, 2019
“For BETTER for WORSE, in SICKNESS and in HEALTH’ is SATANIC. It‘s a CURSE! You are accepting an evil prophesy. God’s testimony about you and your marriage is that “GOODNESS and MERCY shall follow you ALL (not SOME) the days of your life”-Psalm 23:6 #FreeLeahSharibu #RenosNuggets— Reno Omokri (@renoomokri) June 27, 2019
He said the steps to marriage, as laid down by God, was: “Step 1: Man approaches Woman; Step 2: Man proposes marriage to Woman; Step 3: Woman accepts proposal; Step 4: They both tell their parents End of process! Every other thing, including CHURCH & REGISTRY is MAN MADE!”
Omokri added that contrary to what many pastors preached, Jesus was never part of the wedding at Cana. According to him, Jesus was in the feast after the ceremony. He challenged pastors to turn water into wine if they wanted to prove otherwise.
Jesus played NO PART in the MARRIAGE at Cana. The only thing He did was turn WATER to WINE during the FEAST that FOLLOWED the WEDDING. If you want to justify Church Wedding, then couples should go to church with WATER for the PASTOR to turn to WINE #FreeLeahSharibu #RenosNuggets— Reno Omokri (@renoomokri) June 27, 2019
