Nigerian lawyer and former personal adviser to the Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri says Scripturally, Bride Price is only paid for virgins and not non virgins.
“What I am going to say will shock people. Scripturally, Bride Price is ONLY paid for virgins. Don’t argue with me. Argue with God. See Exodus 22:16-17. By virtue of Scripture (and also in traditional African society), you pay no Bride Price for non virgins.”
“I’ve read Scripture from cover to cover, in multiple languages. No scriptural wedding is conducted by a priest or pastor, or in church. Scriptural marriage is a family affair and ONLY involves the groom, bride and parents. Feast is optional. Not mandatory
Scriptural marriage involves only the COUPLE and PARENTS. Marriage is a family affair. Church has NO role in it.
That is how Isaac married Rebekah-Genesis 24:67. That is how David married Michal-1 Samuel 18:27. That is how Hosea married his wife-Hosea 1:3.
You dont need priests to wed. Some cite the wedding in Cana as proof Christ officiated weddings. False. He attended as a GUEST. Yes, He turned water to wine. If that is your claim, then let the priest imitate Christ and turn water into wine at your wedding.
As Christians, we must adjust our lifestyle to suit Scripture, rather than adjust Scripture to suit our lifestyles.
Too often, we adjust our lives to church doctrine. Church doctrine cant take you to heaven, because many church doctrines have pagan origins.”
