What's your grouse with that? You have a choice to go there or go elsewhere...If the church is not strict you are the same people who will tell the tales all over town! You would say - How can a church allow that to happen? How can a church join these kind of people?

Temitope A said...

I think the reason behind all these is to avoid issues. Though, they are too strict.

Marcel Duplexis said...

Hmmm. They want to lose some members. These conditions are a bit tight

Anonymous said...

Madam Linda. There's no big deal in the conditions now; at least let's the decency start from the house of God. It's high time people should understand the real meaning of this institution called marriage. Go to Anglican and Catholic; the level of decency there is really commendable. Our mothers did not wear half-naked wedding gowns during their own time.

This 1 is small let me add they inspect nd warn you not to play any wordy songs at your reception. Your wedoing gown must not fit you to show your shape else change, no beer or alcohol, your gown must have sleeves no small sleeves or medium sleeves, he must be born again better if from the same church, getting married in the church is like a nightmare with all sorts of funny rules. You stress nd stress just to get wed in the church. Least I forget there is 1 for the bridal makeup very light you almost look pale for it to be pleasing all this rules in my Abuja parish.

Well I think it's high time the church takes hard decisions to stem the tides in marriages today. Too many broken homes and unhappy marriages. I pray they extend this to rich church members with no verifiable means of income and those living above their means

Small thing. Come to my church then you would understand

What's wrong with the requirements, Linda?
This has been the norm in RCCG since I can remember, and if you think they are too strict, wait till you see that of Deeper Life.
Please focus on your blogging and leave church rules alone, Some things will never make sense to you, no matter how hard you tried.

Wait a minute. Do christians still live under "laws" (or "rules"),aren't they supposed to be living under "grace" instead?

True Tony said...

I dont see anything wrong in that requurement. Its a church of God and things should be done in Gods way. Pls linda i think this post is not relevant

chaliz said...

Onyinye, which is better. To accept your fault, ask God for forgiveness and move on with the wedding or to abort the child and make everyone believe u are still a virgin. who are u deceiving?

Anonymous said...

All traditional marriages must take place in the church premises for proper monitoring.

Pls, is for only members not general public. Besides, other churches/Muslims has there Marriage requirements. I know this was posted by RCCG member. May God forgive.

Anonymous said...

Linda! i really don't know why you have to post this on your blog? every church have their rules and regulations guiding their actives. if any of the above stated conditions seems impossible for people with hateful and disregarding comments, why not try some where else. Abi na by force to marry for RCCG? Marriage is holy and the processes requires some sense of decency and morals.

Is it your place to judge for God? Who made you judge and Juror? If you can't accept it leave it for God and Keep shut, He didn't ask you to judge or condemn them for Him.

Its not in your place to condemn or judge. Go and start your own Church since you'll do a better job

Church is not your supermarket. Go start yours if e pain you

Cherechi Onuoha said...

I'd watch my language if i were you. If you don't like it, shut up. You can't even afford a correct statement talk less of a beautiful reception.

Cherechi Onuoha said...

Kindly start your own Church. I'm sure you'll draw a crowd

Cherechi Onuoha said...

Did your Bible say it was Jesus that joined the couple or it was in the church they did the wedding. Read Bible with sense and understanding don't add the one your lame mind tried to concieve.

After abiding by all this, those it assure of a successful marital life.?

What is wrong with the rule? To carry out pregnancy test is now a crime? If u can't adhere, do ur traditional marriage and move in as man and wife. They r only trying to help u economize self. Open ur eyes and mind and read.
