Earlier this week (HERE), we published the guidelines for for couples who want to get married in Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries (MFM).
Some of the rules include:
The brother (groom) and his best man must not do any of the worldly head hair cut styles.
Chief bridesmaid and Best man must be a Christian of good standard.
There is no need for flower boys or girls.
Observe strictly compulsory 6 months courtship period from the first day you meet the marriage committee.
Inspection of the accommodation of the brother (groom) to be carried out.
No use of Alcohol in the reception if done in the Church premises and no use of talking drum.
Well, a Facebook user and KFBer, Bukola Bridget, has reacted thus:
points are very important. Like dress decently, of course! And let me
also say, wearing a crown, MAY not be so necessary. But, that’s subject
to individual preference. (I will use it if my soul pleases).
But, hold on a sec, how do we define marriage really?
As defined by the book of common sense, when your ‘mini-gods’, that is,
your parents, give you the go-ahead to marry your partner, and they do
that wholeheartedly, your union is blessed. Parental consent is key!
Let both families meet and seal the deal! Well, you may need to have
the presence of your Pastor. That’s okay. Then the only thing left is
just for official purposes, and of course, which is also accepted as a
type of marriage. Please, go to Court! Do the Registry thing!
And if that Pastor decides not to join you, because you didn’t come to
church or ‘follow the rules’, then I sincerely doubt his anointing!
If people want to spend their money, let them spend it! I find my lower
lip breaking sometimes and I can’t use common lip gloss? Do I have to
look pale in my wedding photos because of ‘rules’? Those memories will
haunt me for the rest of my life! What’s the point doing all those in
pretence anyway? These rules do not even guarantee your going to heaven?
Must you go to church by the way? Must you? Will those who
have parlour weddings or those who choose to have just their traditional
weddings go to hell?
May the Lord have mercy on our souls!”
KFBers, what do you think?
