Bishop of Niger Delta West Diocese, Rev. Emmanuel Oko-jaja has criticized ministers who allow couples to kiss during wedding service describing such act a sin
The Bishop said such act is unscriptural and should be discouraged.
He said allowing couples to kiss right in front of the congregation promotes sexual immorality and corrupt the mind of the young ones, especially the teenagers who witness such practice.
Bishop Oko-Jaja said during a sermon he delivered at a child presentation and thanksgiving service which took place at St Mark’s Anglican Church, Biogbolo, Yenagoa, Bayelsa State on Sunday.
He attributed the practice of kissing in the church to the teaching of fake prophets, he, therefore, urged ministers to desist from such.
In his own words, “The practice where couples are allowed to kiss in the church during wedding service is unscriptural. I wish to direct clergymen and church workers in this Diocese to guard against such unholy conducts.
“According to the scriptures, the church is not supposed to serve as a place meant to promote immorality but encourage people to uphold and practice Christian virtues with a view to winning souls for Christ.”
