Religious organizations seem to have taken over the role ought to be played by the two characters in a union called marriage.

The church or mosque should try as much as possible to base their teachings and ideas they hold dear to their congregation /adherents but the decision and responsibilities lie with the players of the love game to inculcate or not.

Recently, a church sent out a circular that couples should provide  their pre-marital examination test. Good idea but they are about to cross the boundary of privacy which is not accepted. Failed based organizations, most times, are held responsible for failures or disappointment in marriages.

According to Sola Ajulo Salako, she put up a post on her facebook wall; “Usually, I try not to comment on religious posts because I know emotions run deep and it is usually difficult for most people to be objective but this is kind of extreme.

It is time for the Church to stop usurping the role of the family in marriage. Marriage as designed by God is a union of two families.

There is nowhere in scripture where the church was the endorsing or approving authority in marriage! The church’s role is to teach believers to live according to the commandments of God whether in marriage or out of it!

Too many marriages are messed up because the Church is meddling outside it’s divine jurisdiction!

This embarrassment has to stop! NOW!


What do you think of this?
